Per interviews with Sergio Aragonés, Joe Orlando, and Carmine Infantino in Comic Book Artist #1 (Spring 1998), numerous hands were involved in the conception of Bat Lash. Carmine Infantino and Joe Orlando came up with the name and general concept and turned it over to Sheldon Mayer. Mayer's first story was rejected, and the concept was passed to Aragonés, who wrote and laid out this first story. Denny O'Neil was brought in as scripter with Bat Lash #1, or possibly the story in this issue. A previous indexer credited Nick Cardy as co-writer.
Story across 24 pages, but page 11 is a 2/3-page and pages 17 and 24 are 1/2-pages.
Feature continues in Bat Lash #1.
