Detective Comics #367

Detective Comics #367 (On Sale: July 27, 1967) has an interesting cover by Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson.

"Where There's a Will -- There's a Slay" is by Gardner Fox, Carmine Infantino and Sid Greene and continues from the previous issue. After defusing a bomb meant to kill Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson and Alfred discover a will written by Bruce in the Batcave. Robin deciphers a clue written into the will that leads him to Doc Hastings, the villain behind the murder attempts. Robin finds the villain while on the way to warn Bruce, but he is knocked out by a jolt of electricity. Hastings then uses Robin as bait for a trap. Reprinted in Batman #262

The Elongated Man back-up "Enigma of the Elongated Evildoer" is by Gardner Fox, Carmine Infantino and Sid Greene. While vacationing at a ski lodge, the Elongated Man is asked to help solve a mystery involving robberies committed by a thief believed to have stretching abilities. Ralph investigates the robberies and concludes that the thief might not have stretching powers at all.
