Doug Moench and Gene Colan take the second half of this Cat-Man 2-parter in an interesting direction in Detective 538 (May 1984).
Thomas Blake, the Cat-Man was defeated by Batman in the first half of this story, but the news was spread that he had won, because of his costume. This is all done in order to get a fellow con to lead Batman to where he stored his loot.
Thomas Blake has a small role, in protective custody with Harvey Bullock, but the man in cat suit for this story is Collins.
With Batman tailing, Collins breaks into Blake’s apartment, steals the suit, and heads out for his loot. he takes crazy risks, because he believes in the suit’s magic, and Batman has to save his life, repeatedly, without being spotted, to keep the con going.
Collins leads Batman to his loot, in a cave, but a collapse opens a tunnel and Collins winds up in the Batcave. He and Batman fight on the dinosaur and giant penny, as Alfred tries to explain the sounds to Julia, who has recently moved into Wayne Manor.
Collins is captured, and Batman explains the con, but Collins still believes it was the suit that saved his life, and lead him to the Batcave.
Thomas Blake returns as Cat-Man in a couple of years. Collins is not seen again, doubtlessly shanked in prison by Blake.
Shawn McManus is now on the pencils for Green Arrow, with Pablo Marcos doing inks, and just in time as Joey Cavalieri tells a poignant story, reflecting back on a dead friend of Oliver Queen.
The story is split on each page, with the present, as Green Arrow hunts and captures gun runners, on the top. On the bottom is the story of Oliver and his pop star musician friend.
When I first read this, when it came out, I couldn’t see any connection at all between the two stories, and it sort of irritated me, until I hit the page above, and realized that the pop star was meant to be John Lennon, and the upper story about the ease with which illegal guns are available in the US.
