Did You Know?


The method in which the murder weapon was concealed closely parallels the Holmes story "Thor Bridge" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. See more »


The wannabes are portraying Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, Irene Adler, and Professor Moriarty. These four characters are obviously meant to reference the old "221B Baker Street" board (and, later, computer) game. However, although Sherlock Holmes, Irene Adler, and Dr. Watson were characters in the game, Professor Moriarty wasn't. The fourth character in the game was the redoubtable Inspector Lestrade. The mistake was undoubtedly due to the fact that Moriarty appears on the cover of the computer game version alongside Irene Adler, Holmes and Watson. See more »


Kay Marquette: [to Brass in her Irene Adler voice about the victim, a Sherlock Holmes impersonator] You see, detective, Denny would have wanted his murder to be the perfect puzzle. A mystery worthy of the master.

"The Case Batman Failed to Solve"
1 May 2006 | by (Granada, Spain) – See all my reviews

This Sherlock story is like the first one published in "Batman 14" (Cover Date: Dec/Jan 1942). A story plot can be found at http://www.dcindexes.com/database/story-details.php?storyid=7341

Synopsis: Batman and Robin are invited to attend a meeting of great detectives. The Guest of Honor, Dana Drye, is shot to begin the meeting. The other detectives and Batman join together to solve the mystery of his murder. Batman follows several leads. Eventually he learns that Drye was dying of an incurable disease, and his death was suicide. Drye had also discovered Batman's secret identity. In order to protect his own secret, Batman pretends to fail in his effort to solve the case.

This Dana Drye planned his own dead so the gun desappears.
