Batman vs. Zippy the Pinhead

In issue #17 of DETECTIVE COMICS, Batman takes on Bill Griffith's Zippy the Pinhead.

Oh, it might be argued that the model for this villain is the original 20th-century famous pinhead, Schlitzie, most notable for a role in FREAKS.

But surely Zippy's more prominent public profile today will lead many baffled readers to question why Batman has a grudge against our harmless resident of Dingsburg.
