Tracking the only other person who handled his luggage - the air hostess checkout girl - Batman discovers her secret rendezvous with... Shotgun Smith! However, "Smith" is revealed as a phoney and the dope a mind-control drug, which was aimed at making Bruce Wayne a "willing" blackmail victim.

Are you afraid of the dark? 0

This is the kind of Batman story that could only be told in the Golden or Silver Age. Batman becomes afraid of the dark! Yes, THE Batman becomes afraid of the dark. It's not his most heroic moment. Actually, the second story, starring the Elongated Man is better and more enjoyable. Without the second story, I would have given this issue 1 or 2 stars....
