This is the first issue of Detective Comics published under the editorial helm of Paul Levitz, succeeding long-time editor Julius Schwartz. On the opening page, Levitz addresses the merge of Detective Comics with Batman Family, which took place the previous issue. In a similar fashion to the mentioned issue, most of the stories featured in this comic were scheduled to appear in Batman Family and had already been produced. This is the reason why Julius Schwartz and Al Milgrom are credited as "contributing editor" in the indicia, despite the recent change.
