Synopsis: The Joker escapes from police custody and embarks on another series of murders.
Notes: This story was originally written so as to kill off the Joker. However, after editorial review, a new ending was commissioned to suggest he lived.The splash page of this story bears a striking resemblance to the cover of Detective #40, indicating that it may have been intended originally as the lead story for that title.
