Synopsis for "Batman's Roman Holiday"

Batman and Robin travel backwards in time to ancient Rome to rescue Professor Nichols, who was trapped in that time. Upon arriving to the ancient Rome, the people recognize Batman as the great Batmanus or legends as a consequence of Batman's previous arrival on Rome. Batman and Robin learn that Nichols had been captured by an evil King and they have to rescue their friend. Using modern science and technology unknown on that era, the Dynamic Duo build a hot air baloon in order to escape from that place along with Nichols. Upon returning to the present, Nichols decides that if he ever needs to learn something from the past, he would just send Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson.

Synopsis for "Am I Really Batman?"

After capturing Professor Milo, Batman is exposed to a gas that robs him of his will to live. He wakes up inside of a mental hospital, but quickly escapes and returns to Wayne Manor. Robin and Alfred help to perpetuate the belief that Bruce Wayne is not actually Batman, creating a mystery that will spur his will to live until the gas wears off.

Notes

  • In this issue, Milo's appearance is extremely different from his previous incarnation. This is most likely a mistake by the artist.
  • Signalman's gimmick is very similar to the antics commonly attributed to the Riddler. However, he claims to have actually been inspired by the Joker and the Penguin.
  • This is actually the second instance in which Professor Nichols has sent Batman to ancient Rome. The first time took place in Nichols' first appearance in Batman #24. So far as continuity is concerned, this event is common to both the Earth-One and Earth-Two versions of Batman.

Trivia

  • This issue includes a one-page "Casey the Cop" and "Warden Willis" humor strip by Henry Boltinoff.
  • This issue includes a one-page text article entitled "Trouble on the London Express".
  • "Batman's Roman Holiday" is a reference to the famous 1953 romantic comedy, Roman Holiday starring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn.
