Robin Dies At Dawn! (Batman, 1963)

One of the great 1960's iconic DC covers for an otherwise dopey story. The editors must have released how good the cover was because they tried to tie three otherwise separate stores in to a 3 part ‘epic’. As we saw two days ago, the ‘Ant-Man’ story (part 1) has little to do with this story (part 2). Part 3 has a brief flashback to part 2, but is mostly about Batman catching bad guys while wearing a gorilla suit.
