Comments: Batman is shown as a big muscled guy going into action against Pyg. Robin is with him and the two do see plenty of action against Pyg and his Dollotron's.
Batman does look imposing when he enters but the Shadow is frightening. The Shadow pays the Pyg a visit and it is the Shadow who doesn't know.
Batman in his Batcave is a brooding sight. He is drawn dark and melodramatic.
Batman and his son Robin have a strained relationship. Batman wants to be overly protective and Robin wants to be free to do as he pleases and take whatever risks he wants to.
This is a good opening issue to introduce the characters and set up for the Shadow and Batman to team-up against the Silent Seven.

Comments: Robin finds himself in battle and in need of help. Who shows up well its not Batman.
The Shadow and Batman do know of each other. Just with Robin now in the Shadow's city they meet. All three are after the Silent Seven.
The ones in control of the evil in New York are revealed.
Batman and the Shadow join together and what a team they make. Whether fighting crime on the streets as a hard hitting duo or in the boardroom. These two are looking smart in their business suits.
More action and less talk is needed. The drama with Robin and Batman, son and father is ok for a brief time but here it goes on to long.
Batman and the Shadow are alike in many ways and these two forces for justice combined will be unstoppable.
