The origin of Nightwing is revealed.


  • This issue shipped on October 25th, 2006.

  • About the characters appearing at Bruno Mannheim's gathering of Gotham criminals:
  • As might be expected, this issue shows us that superheroes are popular inspirations for Halloween costumes in the DC Universe. Among the trick-or-treaters can be seen a lil' Flash, a lil' Frankenstein, a lil' Captain Marvel, a lil' Wonder Woman, a lil' Black Lightening and a lil' Supergirl.
  • The ticker-tape at the bottom of the cover reads, "Goblins, Ghouls and Green Lantern!... Meet the Crime Lord of Gotham!... Death of Kite Man... "
