Sorry to take so long to comment.

I'm not surprised that Barr wrote a letter praising this story. Barr wrote a text piece for my favorite treasury, Batman's Strangest Cases. There he highlighted "Other Strange Cases of the Batman" and this is one of the issues he mentioned. He made the story sound very intriguing in the text piece, but I was very disappointed with it once I got to read it.

No worries. Incidentally, yesterday was Mike W. Barr's birthday. I read this birthday tribute at 13thdimension.com just before hitting the 66 board and seeing your response in this thread.
