Panels from "The Man from Robin's Past" in Batman #129 (February 1960), script by Bill Finger, pencils by Sheldon Moldoff, inks by Charles Paris, letters by Stan Starkman

Can you solve the mystery before Batman? That's right: it was the wily Canadian Englishman!

I'm feeling very smug because I actually DID figure out the clue...but what I really love is using tires to catch bad guys. Which is something that Batman and Robin seemed to do quite a bit, now that I think about it.

Yeah, I fixated on that date right away. Also? Batman lets Kraven the Hunter walk away scot-free!
