Indexer Notes

First Letters To The Batman(previously Letters To The Batcave). New name suggested by reader Anthony Kowalik. He also enclosed a sketch of The Batman which was considered of such high quality that Neal Adams inked it and DC used it as a header for the lettercol.

Letters of comment from Clem Robins; Jeff Ristine; Mike Oslance; Paul Dushkind; and Steve Beery.
