Synopsis for "Faces of Death"
Disguised as a member of Black Mask's False Face Society, Batman has to save Lucius Fox from torture, or possibly death. In the mean time, he is unintentionally putting strain on the relationship between James Gordon and his wife to be, Sarah Essen. He is able to rescue Lucius Fox, with unexpected help from Black Mask's former love, Circe, but although the False Face Society's second in command, Tattoo, is captured along with most of the mask gang, Black Mask remains at large as he disguised a Wayne Corp Executive, Howard Rambeau, as himself to change places in the last moment.
- No special notes.
- Batman feels exhausted physically and that shows in the fight versus Tattoo. Batman endure some punishment before he could beat Tattoo with one finishing blow. In the end, Black Mask managed to dissapear and that affected Batman making him feel like he failed. All this events can be considered as a prelude to the Knightfall story arc.
- In page 9 a Marlboro sign can be seen just behind Batman.
- Page 13 shows a famous Yale Key, used by Black Mask thug Tattoo.
