Indexer Notes

Story is broken into three chapters. Title is initially given as "?" and later revealed to be "The Case of the Baffling Birthday". // Kaye Daye (of Earth-One's Mystery Analysts of Gotham City) is referenced as a mystery novelist. Robin is not formally identified as Tim Drake in-story but he appears younger than The Flash, who has been established as Wally West, Dick Grayson's contemporary.
