Page 3 I've always been a fan of the "Detective" batman stories. Sure it's cool to see him get beat up then rise out of the depths to shut down a powerful foe. But being a mystery fan, I love watching the caped crusader actually dip into that "Holmsian" magic from time to time.

Another aspect of Batman that I love is told from when he was a batman monster in the dark underbelly of Gotham. I love watching the criminal's reaction when they first see him. It seems that the current Bat stories don't tap into the mystique anymore.

So with those two ideas in mind, I wrote this story. I decided to work from the prespective of an actual detective following the path of destruction the Frightener cuts before her. you'll notice that I'll keep the title character of this story at arm's length in order to fully realise his almost ethereal presence to the underbelly of Venture city.

I hope my experiment work*. *(Nervous chuckle)
