Batman 66 The Lost Episode
During the original Batman television series run, legendary science-fiction writer Harlan Ellison turned in an outline for a story that would have introduced Two-Face.

Also included in this special edition are Ellison’s original prose story outline and the complete, original pencils by Garcia-Lopez.
