When Batman discovers Julie in a trance, he is advised by a doctor to take her to Hungary, where he faces a living vampire, who wishes to kill the Caped Crusader and feed Julie to his werewolves.

Batman uses two new weapons in this story: the Batgyro and the Baterang. This is the first appearance of Julie Madison, introduced as Bruce's fiancée. She would show up in a few additional issues until she breaks off her engagement to Bruce in Detective Comics #49. Storyline continues in the next issue.
