Ed Brubaker begins his run on Detective with issue 777 (Feb. 03), re-thinking a classic story, and sequelling it, with Tommy Castillo and Wade Von Grawbadger on the art.

A nobody little hoodlum comes across Killer Moth’s suit, and decides to use it to commit crimes.  Turns out that was a bad idea, as he gets murdered, despite professing that he was not the original.  Crispus Allen and Renee Montoya are the cops investigating, and get what little info they can from the one witness, an older man.

Next to the body, they discover a two-headed coin, but both sides are scarred.

The news of the coin circulates quickly in the underworld.  The Riddler comes to tell the Penguin about it, and it disturbs both men greatly, though we do not know why.

Batman, and the police, determine that the coin does not belong to Two-Face.  He would be the obvious suspect, except for the double scarring.  Batman questions the widow of the victim, but learns little, other than that the man that was questioned by the police apparently does not exist.  Heading to the crime site, Batman finds the remains of his disguise, and realizes that Charlie Tann was really the Charlatan.

The story continues in the next issue.
