A Lonely Place of Dying

Letters Column: Bat-Signals

A photographer took pictures of Batman in action, knowing he was Bruce Wayne. He then set out to find Dick Grayson. Alfred patched up Bruce from injuries he'd received the night before. He told his employer how concerned he was for him. Batman notified Gordon that Two-Face was back in action. The photographer asked Starfire about Nightwing. He broke into Dick's apartment and learned Haly's Circus was closing.
