Synopsis

When word spreads throughout the underworld that Batman has been killed, several villains take credit for the deed. So the villain community sets up a trial to test the various claims, with Ra's al Ghul acting as judge and Two-Face acting as prosecutor. First up is the Catwoman. But Two-Face finds the technical error in Catwoman's story and she is dismissed.

Notes

Story continues in Batman #292. Batman is not revealed to be acting as Two-Face until the fourth part of the story. It is unclear whether Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dum is the character shown in the gallery. Credits for script, pencils and inks confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics.
