Batman's Great Escapes Month, Day 21: No one would have believed in the last years of the twentieth century...

...that superhuman affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space. No-one could have dreamed that we were being scrutinized, as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. Few men even considered the possibility of life on other planets. And yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely, they snuck out of Commissioner Gordon's office.

Panels from Detective Comics #715 (November 1997), script by Chuck Dixon, pencils by Graham Nolan, inks by Eduardo Barreto, colors by Gloria Vasquez, letters by John Costanza

I don't remember this ish. Nolan/Barreto is a nice combo. Why did The Flash slap Gordon in that last panel, though?
