Notes:
First appearance of Batgirl. Note that this issue is published during the run of Batman on TV. Coincidence? Not really. Gardner Fox and Carmine Infantino created her expressly for the TV show. Even though she won't appear on television screens as Batgirl until September of this year, Yvonne Craig thus has at least as much claim on being the "first appearance of Batgirl" as does this issue.

A cab ride that takes an hour - both passengers fall asleep - and they finish the ride in a different taxi! It's a natural case to get The Elongated Man's nose twitching!
