Notes and Triva[]

  • The letter page of this issue features a list of some episodes from Batman: The Animated Series and the villains or characters featured. On the episode See No Evil, the featured characters are listed as "The Count & the Countessa"; which are characters that never appeared at all. This could be related to the different scripts that were written for the episode, according to director Dan Riba and the fact that DC Comics were given all the earlier versions of the scripts, which were not always the final versions that were produced into episodes.


  • "You can't know what it's like, Batman. To soar through the sky, to have the strength of ten men, to be capable of anything... and to know for the rest of your life that you're only an hour away from having it all again." - Kirk Langstrom
