Batman: The Brave and the Bold #10

As with the previous issues of this volume, Batman: The Brave and the Bold #10 offers multiple stories, some being one-offs and others being part of ongoing stories. The highlight of this issue is the first story involving a new Man-Bat, Maps Mizoguchi playing Robin, romance troubles for Bruce Wayne, and some terrific art of Karl Kerschl capturing Batman in all his Bronze Age glory. If you are going to pick up this issue, this is the reason why as the rest of the stories range from middling to fine without another standout.

We also get a tale of Artemis quite literally wandering the desert which is mostly setup in the first chapter of a new ongoing story, the Signal fighting a Jokerized vigilante making use of various Bat-villain weapons to try and take down any Bat-hero he can find and inspire other Nameless to rise up as well, Lois Lane gets a story involving a murdered reporter who was looking into riddles and treasure hunts, and the final story involves Batman taking down a rampaging Clayface upset he can no longer enjoy a cheeseburger.
