Doug Moench continues the return of the Savage Skull, the cop killer who had only appeared in Batman up to this point, in Detective 528 (July 1983), with art by Gene Colan and Klaus Janson.
Mayor Hamilton Hill brought Harvey Bullock back onto the force in the last Batman, and Commissioner Gordon goes to complain to him in this story, not realizing that the reason the mayor brought Bullock in was to annoy Gordon.
Bullock is quite a bit different than his first appearance in these pages in the mid-70s. While his anti-Batman attitude is intact, he is slovenly, and does not appear a completely honest cop.
The mayor’s task is made easier when more dead police show up, despite Gordon, and Batman, insisting the Savage Skull was dead. Harvey goes to track him on his own, and finds the killer.
Harvey is almost killer by the Skull, but Gordon intervenes and saves him. Gordon had not trusted Bullock, and had been following him. Batman also shows up, on the trail on his own, and defeats the Savage Skull.
Things seem patched up between Bullock and Gordon, until Bullock holds a press conference, lying about the capture of the Skull and denouncing Gordon.
Green Arrow shoots his way out of this deadly situation with a rope arrow, thanks to Joey Cavalieri, Paris Cullins and Pablo Marcos.
Green Arrow discovers that Ozone is somehow connected to a secret government science agency, Z.Z.Z. Rick knows more about this organization than Oliver, although how much he is connected is not clear.
Ozone continues on his merry way, stealing at will.
The story does continue. Just in case you thought it ended that way.
