NotesEdit

  • "The Batman Wars Against the Dirigible of Doom" is reprinted in the following issues:
  • Batman's origin is revealed for the first time in this issue. The origin is a two-page spread that serves as a prologue to the main story. It is titled, "The Batman and How He Came to Be". It is reprinted in Batman: The Greatest Stories Ever Told. Batman chronologically appears next in Detective Comics #65.
  • First appearance of the Golden Age versions of Thomas Wayne, Martha Wayne and Joe Chill. All three appear in flashback only.
  • The Batplane is destroyed in this issue.
  • This is the second time that the Batman has used a gun. But this time, rather than shooting a vampire, he kills a human being. Batman body count now = (7 plus {a dirigible crew, how many?})
  • It is revealed that Batman uses a secret laboratory at Wayne Manor to develop his weapons. The Batcave has yet to be introduced.
  • This story contains the second reference to Batman's hometown as Manhattan, New York. At the time of publishing, Gotham City has yet to be introduced into Earth-Two continuity.
