This was one of my earliest Batman comic book purchases. I couldn’t resist the great cover! The main story featured the Mask of Matuchima, which drives men to murder. It’s up to Batman to stop the madness. Jim Aparo’s illustrations work great here.

Of course, it also debuts the new Manhunter in a great backstory. Walt Simonson provides the artwork.
