Detective Comics #365

Detective Comics #365 (On Sale: May 31, 1967) has a really fun cover by Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson.

"The House the Joker Built" is by John Broome, Sheldon Moldoff and Joe Giella. The Joker begins selling Joker merchandise and competing against Batman. When the Caped Crusaders arrive to battle him, the Joker intentional stages fights with them. The villain is capturing the fights on camera and selling the program to the underworld. Batman is lured into a trap. Cool cover, stupid story.

The Elongated Man back-up "The Crooks Who Captured Themselves" is by Gardner Fox and Sid Greene. The Elongated Man witnesses two thieves robbing a coin shop. He tries to apprehend them, but soon discovers that when using his powers, his own limbs do not obey him. Instead of stopping the crooks, he stops the police.

Edited by Julius Schwartz.
