Batman also shot the Monk and his vampire girlfriend with silver bulllets in Detective Comics#32.
Was surprised at how many ideas Bob Kane and Bill Finger got from the Shadow, including an evil clown, giant props, and the plot for Detective#27.
o...This is obviously a line about that stillborn FIRST WAVE universe .
The mini fell t prey t oexcess lateness , a TPB collected it but , IIRC , did NOT collect a First Wave one-shot/annual that also came out and Wijipedia did not go into ful details about it ~ What happened with` and IN ~ First Wave anyway ?
Such is modern storytelling that some of the " exotic " differences in FW only were spelled out in the bonus notes ~ Like this Black Canary being a vaguely Indonesian-Polynesian immigrant of rather " ol-country "-ish perents never really got made clear in the stories themselves !
