Issue Notes

Introduction states that this is the third in the series of Batman specials (following The Joker and Batman & Superman). It also states that the next special will focus on Batgirl, but it appears as though that was published as the first issue of the ongoing Batman Monthly Presents.

The Batman and Robin capture the Penguin attempting to pick up a postcard from the local post office, then discover the card is from the cagey bird's Aunt Miranda, wishing him a happy birthday, and who believes Oswald to be a successful, upstanding umbrella businessman. When it is discovered that the aunt is planning to visit Oswald, the Caped Crusaders try to keep the Penguin on the straight and narrow during her visit.
