I choose to interpret this cover to show the first meeting of Batman and Slam Bradley, which takes place in Detective 761 (Oct. 01), even though the figure with the gun might be anyone. Certainly it seems to fit the second story, and not the first at all.
The Batman story in this issue, by Rucka, Martinborough, and Jesse Delperdang, has him lay out a 30 day training regime that Sasha Bordeaux must complete in order to continue to work with him.
While this is going on, and Internal Affairs investigation begins of the police. Renee and Allen are focussed on by the other cops, because of their actions under the Mad Hatter.
Bruce continues to see Vesper, to Sasha’s dismay. Vesper is no longer a radio host, having moved into journalism, and has come back to Gotham on a story.
And what is that story? Well, she is spying on Batman, and flirting with Bruce. She even has a camera. Oh, no! Vesper Fairchild has turned into Vicki Vale! She must be trying to prove Bruce is Batman! How…boring.
The Internal Affairs investigation provides a better twist, as Renee discovers it’s not about the Mad Hatter at all. The man who shot Jim Gordon has been killed, and the evidence points to a cop.
Slam Bradley continues to have a hard time of things in this chapter, by Brubaker and Cooke.
People are beating, threatening and bribing him to either find or not find Catwoman and/or Selina Kyle, but despite everyone’s interest, Slam really isn’t getting anywhere.
He does have his first meeting with Batman, over 60 years since the men began sharing this comic. And it doesn’t start well, as Batman threatens Slam, wanting to know his agenda. Slam does manage to convince Batman that he has no bad intentions towards the woman.
And so, cleared by Batman, Slam Bradley meets Selina Kyle.
The story concludes next issue.
