Detective 378 (Sept. 68) concludes the Frank Robbins/Bob Brown/Joe Giella story that began last issue.
Batman is alerted to both Robins in danger, and goes to rescue the one who he can tell is not the real one, taking him out of the picture, and learning that side of the plan to kill him. Alfred dresses up as Batman and tries to rescue Dick, but fails and falls into the harbour. Chino sees this, and thinks Batman is dead.
When Chino calls Salvo to gloat over killing Batman, Salvo and his men come to kill Chino. Batman and Robin save the boy and captures Salvo and his men. Robin returns home, and Chino is placed in foster care, promising to be good.
Not a great story, but a big change from the past few years.
Zatara makes his first appearance since being found by Zatanna in this story by Gardner Fox, with Sid Greene art. He has opened a magic shop, but gets attacked by criminals who want to use his magic tricks for crime.
While unconscious, he dreams of the Elongated Man, and in doing so gives Ralph his backwards magic casting powers.
Ralph goes to find Zatara, and of course finds the crooks who attacked him, and takes them down. Zatara wakes, and removes the powers from Ralph. As a nice touch, Ralph was not able to use the magic well, because he found the backwards speaking too difficult.
