Letters Column: Bat-Signals

Knowing that Batman is on their case, the dumpster killers take drastic measures to throw Batman off of their trail, including one of them dying at the other's hand. But when Batman recovers the murder weapon and the court finds the evidence inadmissable, the killer is allowed to go free. Choosing one last victim, the killer meets an ironic, fitting end. Meanwhile, Batman ponders the dangers of working on the edges of the law and sees Jason Todd flirting with going over the edge.
