Chuck Dixon and Norm Breyfogle helm Detective 659 (Early May 1993), the second part of Knightfall. Much of this years run would be devoted to this storyline, which sees Bane push Batman to his breaking point.
The issue begins as felons flee from Arkham Asylum, after Bane breaks it open. Maxie Zeus makes it no further than the nearest tree, but in the background one can see the Ventriloquist making a sock puppet, to replace his missing Scarface.
The other villains are simply cannon fodder for Bane, and Lieutenant Kitch discovers the corpse of Film Freak, murdered by Bane.
Amygdala, recently introduced in Shadow of the Bat, partners up the the Ventriloquist. His sock puppet is not an adequate subtsitutue for Scarface, and he decides to find his lost friend.
Robin keeps spotting a circling falcon, and takes off from Batman to follow it, correctly assuming it to be connected to Bane.
Batman has been tracking the Ventriloquist, and manages to defeat Amygdala, but Arnold Wesker gets away during the battle.
While Batman deals with Amygdala, Robin faces Bird.
The story continues in the next issue of Batman.
