Batman 33 – the Penguin’s bird clues


Robin’s acrobatic skills seem lacking on the cover of Batman 33 (Feb/March 1946).


Bill Finger is joined by Win Mortimer for the Penguin story in this issue, which sees the villain being used by a decoy by others.


The Penguin sends Batman and Robin clues, in the form of bird pictures.  A crane, for example, as a hint to the theft of a rare copy of Sleepy Hollow.  And as the heroes track the Penguin, the other thieves use the opportunity to commit their own crimes.


When the Penguin figures out what the others are up to, he sends Batman clues to their crimes, while Robin winds up taking down the Penguin himself. Mortimer’s art is not bad, but also not exceptional.
