Issue Notes

This issue is a variant of Batman (DC, 1940 series) #500 [Regular Edition Kelley Jones art]. There exist further variants.

Special edition has die-cut cover with 3.95 USD; 4.95 CAD price and two Batman postcards.

The die-cut cover is actually a double cover. Batman [Bruce Wayne] appears on the outer front cover, and when lifting the die-cut portion, Batman [Jean-Paul Valley] appears in the same scene, replacing Bruce. The left side of the inner cover (the back side of the front outer die-cut cover) shows Robin being threatened by Bane in a continuation of the Jean-Paul Valley art. The back inside cover also shows the same scene of Robin being threatened by Bane in a continuation of the Bruce Wayne art from the front outer cover.
