Issue Tagline: Stories that Inspired the Movie

Format: Color; Trade Paperback; 72 pages

Story Arc(s):    Add/remove story arcs to this issue

Synopsis:
None entered.

Reprints/Collects:
Batman: The Long Halloween (1996) #1
Detective Comics (1937) #27
Secret Origins (1986) TPB

Notes:
Odd-sized digest format, so as to fit in a standard DVD box. Reprints three seminal stories from Batman's history. Oddly, despite having the tagline of "stories that inspired the movie", it doesn't include a story from Miller's Year One work, which was ostensibly a major influence on the scriptwriters.
This Two-Disk Deluxe Edition is now out of print.

Synopsis:
Commissioner Gordon learns of the murder of local chemical king, Mr. Lambert, and quickly rushes to the scene with Bruce Wayne (who was bored and apparently had nothing better to do). Mr. Lambert's business partner Mr. Rogers was next on the hit-list, and his other business partner Mr. Stryker turns out to be the one behind it all! The Bat-Man rushes onto the scene and stops Stryker in time, but unfortunately knocks Stryker into a pit of acid.

Notes:
aka "The Case of the Chemical Syndicate", originally published in Detective Comics (1937) #27.
