Batman (1940) #257
100-Page Super-Spectacular. The tragedy and comedy of the Dark Knight Detective's career against crime. In a brand new tale, writer Denny O'Neil and artists Irv Novick and Dick Giordano weave a story of kidnapping, extortion and deception. The Penguin holds the young prince of a rich Asian nation hostage and the Dynamic Duo have to rescue him from an island fortress before an entire country has to proclaim "Hail Emperor Penguin!" Next, Batman goes on a rampage in a "Hunt for a Robin-Killer!" (written by Gardner Fox and drawn by Gil Kane and Sid Greene).

In a Golden Age tale of the Caped Crusader, writer Bill Finger and artist Dick Sprang introduce a non-stop talker on a crime spree called "Ally Babble and the Fourteen Peeves!" Alfred the Butler launches his crime-fighting career with a comedy of errors called "The Controversial Clue!" Then, a non-descript mailman saves the Batman's life in "Die Small...Die Big!" Finally, the Joker uses college hazing to mask his crimes in "Rackety-Rax Racket!" (drawn by Sprang). Plus, other great features!
