As noted last time, short prose stories used to be a staple of comic books but had largely faded from favor by the 1950s. But the idea lived on and appeared often in the 1970s and 1980s in the pages of assorted DC Comic British hardcover, square bound reprint annuals and albums. Like the previous installment (Superman in “The Master Plan of the Mind Bender”), “The Riddler’s Ransom Robbery” appeared in the Superman Batman With Robin the Boy Wonder Annual 1977, published in England by Brown Watson and is uncredited, but the illustrations are undoubtedly by John Bolton.

Next time: An Alan Moore story from 1985!
