Plot Synopsis: Detective Comics (1937) #438
100-Page Super Spectacular! Savor six suspenseful stories of murder, mayhem and magic in this collection of Silver Age classics and original stories. First, the Batman must deal with the horrific fall-out from his epic battle with Ra's al-Ghul as he learns "A Monster Stalks Wayne Manor" (written by Archie Goodwin and drawn by Jim Aparo). Then, the Atom teams up with Zatanna as they search for the lovely magician's father in the "World of the Magic Atom!" (written by Gardner Fox with art by Gil Kane and Sid Greene).

Hawkman and Hawkgirl must pit the weapons of the ancient past against "The Men Who Moved the World!" (written by Fox and drawn by Joe Kubert). Then, Batman and Robin face the horrible prospect that Alfred Pennyworth, their friend and butler, may have been killed by mobsters from the "Gotham Gang Line-Up!" (Story by Bill Finger, art by Bob Kane and Joe Giella). Next, marvel at the incredible tale of "The House That Fought Green Lantern!" (written by Fox with art by Kane and Giella). Finally, the mysterious Paul Kirk, a.k.a. Manhunter, clashes with his own clones across the globe in a brand-new story written by Goodwin and drawn by Walt Simonson.
