When Batman is going through the filing cabinet, searching for Bullock's file, he passes a file for J. Barr (James O'Barr), who is the creator of "The Crow" comic book series. He also passes an "N. Bate" file, which could be a reference to Norman Bates from Psycho (1960). See more »
Det. Harvey Bullock:
Why? Why'd you stick your neck out like that to help me?
Because I thought you were guilty too... and I was wrong. We may have different ways of enforcing the law, but we both believe in it.

"Spider Conway" is set to testify against high-level Gotham crime boss "Rupert Thorne" but the boat transporting him is blown up.Things point to Harvey Bullock actually being in cahoots with Thorne which seems the opposite of what it should be, but something isn't right. Is the Gotham District Attorney a crook? Batman thinks so but Commissioner Gordon says "No, he may be a jerk but he's an honest cop. For once, I hope your instincts are wrong, Batman?"
One thing for sure: this is another episode with great graphics - in fact - "fantastic" would be a better description. Man, there are a lot of incredibly-drawn scenes in this one.
This is a good episode, and not just because of the artwork. It's interesting and also involves a strange-looking newcomer to the mix as well as keeping us guessing about Bullock.
