"Part 3 - The Gates of Fear!"

There was an emphasis on the "Dark Knight Detective" aspect of Batman during the 1970s issues, and Bob Haney's scripts seem to have been influenced by the crime and police dramas of American TV and movies of that era. Between the political corruption scandals that dominated the news and pop-culture detritus like the Dirty Harry movies, DC Comics' writers could easily dip back into the pulpy, more violent original versions of their hero characters.

While still featuring a punch-throwing Batman (versus one with a gun), the deductive maneuvers and procedures of solving puzzles had more prominence in this era of the title.
