“THE SPOOK STRIKES AGAIN!” Batman learns the secrets of the Spook’s escapes and captures him, only to find he has the fingerprints of a man who was executed for murder 10 years ago.
Batman stars in "The Spook strikes again!" This story picks up where it left off last issue. A disguised Bruce Wayne is waiting in a prison cell for a visit from "his" boss, the Spook - a mysterious character who can seemingly appear and disappear at will. Unfortunately for the Caped Crusader, it is he who is tricked - the Spook is onto him and sends a hypnotised prison guard in a Spook disguise to face him. As he reaches what seems like another dead end, Batman looks around some of the prison cells and discovers some loose flooring, which leads to an underground exit from the prison - he has a break at last. Using underground tunnels and disused subway lines, the Spook has made it look as if he has appeared from nowhere. Batman is onto him, and in no time captures the crook who no longer looks so mysterious. However, in a twist ending, we - along with Batman and Commissioner Gordon - are shocked to find that the man Batman has just arrested was electrocuted 10 years ago!
