Synopsis for "A Vow From the Grave!"

Batman in on the trail of an escaped killer on the outskirts of Gotham and he manages to corner the criminal in a rocky area, but he is attacked by a big man, who allows the killer to escape. Batman is forced to confront the big man and he manages to knock the juggernaut unconscious. At that moment, Batman meets three more people, all of which are physically different. Their leader explains that they used to be circus freaks and that they retired to live in seclusion. They also inform Batman that the big man, whose name is Goliath, didn't intend to attack him, but despite their explanations, the killer is on the loose and Batman continues his seach.

Moments later, Batman stumbles upon an abandoned town hall, which is being used as the freaks' home. When the fat lady screams in despair, Batman investigates and learns that the thin man had been hanged a few moments prior. After this, Batman notices that the escaped killer is just outside the place and he captures the criminal, taking him inside. Unfortunately, Batman has deduced that the killer didn't murder the thin man, but that the crime was committed by the Goliath, seeking to eliminate his competitor for the fat lady's affections.

Batman follows Goliath to the belltower, where he threatens to drop the seal-boy unless Batman jumps down first. Batman complies, tricking Goliath, who in turn tosses "Flippy" and he is rescued by Batman, who was still hanging with help from his Batrope. Afterwards, Batman confronts Goliath and the killer, both of whom started to work together against a common enemy, and Batman gets help from the fat lady and Flippy. Like this, Batman manages to capture two killers and as dawn breaks, he takes them back to meet their justice.
