It;s back to Frank Robbins, Bob Brown and Joe Giella for Detective 396 (Feb. 70), as Batman comes to the aid of a young millionaire who spends his life on his motorbike.

Crooks learn that he delivers his stock orders while biking, and bug his machine, but he dictates in code, and they are forced to kidnap him.  When he starts selling Wayne stock, Bruce gets alerted, and figures out the situation.

It’s not a bad story, not great.  The one thing I do like about it is that the ugly new Batmobile, which appeared a few issues earlier with its awful yellow trim, gets trashed at the end.

Batgirl goes after a serial killer who uses a dating agency to find his prey in this 2-part story by Frank Robbins, with art by Kane and Anderson.

The killer, who gives his victims orchids before strangling them, seems to have a liking for the “Plain Jane” type, so Barbara does herself up that way, and joins the dating agency, in hopes of luring the killer.

Her date does bring her an orchid, and she attacks, but the poor man is simply mystified.  The story does end on a cliffhanger, and she gets grabs from behind.
