A generic cover on Detective 150 (Aug. 49), which makes me wonder why Batman and Robin chose to shoot the rope so close to the Batsignal. Batman is going to get blinded in another step.
The ghost of an executed gangster starts appearing around Gotham, creating panic in the underworld, in this story with art by Dick Sprang.
A renowned ghost buster, Paul Visio, joins Batman in the case, but has no luck proving the ghost a fake.
But that’s because Visio is the one behind the fraud, an attempt to take over Gotham’s gangs by scaring them into submission.
Otto Binder pits Robotman against a similar foe in this story.
Robotcrook is exactly what he sounds like, but he is controlled from afar, rather than having an implanted brain.
Robotman manages to hold off his rival, and find the controller, Gimmick Gus.
The Boy Commandos end their run in Detective Comics with a heck of a trip, with Curt Swan handling the art.
To fulfill the conditions of a will and gain a fortune for charity, Rip and the boys have to travel around the world without duplicating a means of transportation. It does make for an entertaining little story, with plenty of interesting visuals.
Although their series ends here, their own book continues, as does their series in World’s Finest Comics.
