|'Hi Diddle Riddle'
Story Code '6028-Part 1'
by Lorenzo Semple
Holy Injustice! Solving one of the Riddler’s puzzles, Batman and Robin track the villain to the Peale Art Gallery; here they find the Prince of Puzzlers holding a gun on the proprietor, Gideon Peale, and apparently stealing a valuable cross from him. But when the Dynamic Duo stops the Riddler’s hold-up, they learn that his gun is actually a lighter, and that the cross is in fact his own property. The Riddler immediately summons a team of lawyers, who promptly hand the Caped Crusader a subpoena - Riddler is going to sue him for false arrest! Unless the Dynamic Duo can uncover the Riddler's plot before the case comes to trial, Batman will be forced to reveal his true identity in court…
