The crooks are then taken to a prop-shop, where Zatanna has dragged them in order to retrieve the Golden Ting Tripod the crooks stole. With the item. Zatanna expects to find her missing father, the great magician, Zatara. Unfortunately, Zatanna is ambushed by the owner of the prop-shop, who is a criminal using his shop as a front for his fencing activities.

Together, Elongated Man and Zatanna work together to stop the criminals and in the process, Zatanna gets hold of the magic book of I Ching, which combined with the Golden Tripod, will take her to the dark dimension where Zatara is locked.
