I was looking forward to reading these issues.
Detective Comics #412 - Legacy of Hate was a pretty good issue. I loved the Bob Brown art. Waynemoor Castle and Bruce’s need to see living relatives made for an interesting story. It felt like a little bit like a Scooby Doo story. The Don Heck Batgirl story had beautiful artwork. The story was kind of funny to me. A wig that squeezes your head until it cracked.
Detective Comics #413 - The Freak-Out at Phantom Hollow is another nice Bob Brown art issue. I like the feel of a Scooby Doo comic again. The Batgirl story ended pretty well. I have always liked Batgirl and Barbara Gordon. I feel she always had decent stories and characters introduced in the back-ups.
Detective Comics #414 - Legend of the Key Hook Lighthouse was a wonderful Denny O’Neil story. I thought he always wrote strong women. It was just a great one in done story. The Batgirl story was ok. I liked the other back-ups as well.
Detective Comics #415 - The stories were ok. There were some interesting back-ups.
Detective Comics #416 - I always like a Man Bat story. The Rex the Wonder Dog story was so good actually. It was a fun read. I like the idea of the Casebook Mystery stories.
Batman #232 - Daughter of the Demon is one of my favorite stories. I think it is so perfectly written. It really showed off the detective skills of Batman, and I liked how confident Ra’s Al Ghul is. I always thought Talia is such a great character too.
Batman #234 - Half an Evil is another great Denny O’Neil story. I liked how they brought back Two Face for the series. Neal Adams art is perfect for the mood of the story as well.
Batman #235 - Irv Novick’s art is definitely under appreciated. It is just beautifully drawn. I really think this issue showed how good of a character Talia could be. I liked that Batman and Ra’s have to work together. It was a great read.
