Issue Notes

This issue has variants.

Two covers were done for this issue; one by Lee/Williams featuring Batman and Robin in the Batcave, and an alternate one by Quitely featuring Batman and Robin on a building (10 issues for 1 issue mixture). A printing of this book (both covers) was prepared for release on 2008-09-10. That printing was already in the distribution chain before DC noticed a printing problem (see the Notes for the story sequence), and decided to ask (via an advisory from Diamond Comics on 2008-09-08) that retailers destroy any copies that they receive for replacement copies. This was followed up with a press release the next day (2008-09-09) that only said that this book "will not be going on sale this coming Wednesday, as previously scheduled", but instead "will ship 9/17 for an in store date of 9/24". However, many copies that were received by retailers on 2008-09-10 were distributed to the general public anyway. The official copies of this issue went on sale 2008-09-24 (over four months late from the solicited shipping date of this issue). In addition, on 2008-09-30 DC announced that there were problems scanning the UPC on both the standard and variant editions, and that retailers could download the corrected UPC at the Diamond Comic Distributors retailer webpage.

Catwoman, seriously injured, passes word on to Batman through a cop and then Jim Gordon. Batman and Robin find her, signaling Alfred to come get them in a chopper. Batgirl raids drug haven masked as an arcade. Black Canary raids another crime haven, taking some money from it, and then torching the place (with unconscious people inside). Captain Gordon's wife Barbara has been in a car accident after drinking too much at a bar, and is taken to the hospital in serious condition. Batgirl, having started a riot, tries to intervene, but is arrested. Gordon, after leaving the hospital, confronts his daughter, and then calls Sarah for support.

Indexer Notes

Story continued from previous issue and continues in the next issue. Writer Frank Miller had requested all the issue's profanity be lettered in, and then covered with a black bar. In the first printing, however, the black bars were transparent enough to read the offensive language, so DC decided to have that printing destroyed and a new printing created and distributed. The only difference between the two printings is the black bars being printed either transparently or opaquely, and one other change that was snuck in: in the Trinity house ad page, in the lower left corner, there are supposed to be three logos: Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. These were printed fine in the first printing, but in the new printing, someone put a black bar over the Batman logo.
