Ostrander, Sprang, Henry, McKone and Marzan Jr continue their story of the comic book Batman in Detective 623 (Nov. 90).

The second issue of the comic within the comic pits the demonic Batman against the Joker, who actually isn’t that different from the real one.  A young boy wishes for the ability to help Batman, and is transformed into Robin.

There is a Bathound in the tale, which is capable of turning into a Batmobile, and this second issue seems much lighter than the first.

At least, until the Joker gets his hands on Robin, and “steals his innocence.”  In the “reality” part of the story Batman starts hunting for the killer claiming to be him, and the comic’s writer is questioned, and blamed, for the murders.

I do feel a little bad about mostly taking captures of Henry’s work instead of that by McKone and Marzan Jr, but it is, by design, so much more dynamic than the “reality” parts of the story.

The story concludes next issue.
