Interlude on Earth-Two

This was my first encounter with Alan Brennert, and it still remains one of my favourites. But I'll just let Mark Cannon speak on this one:

"This is my personal favourite of Alan Brennert's Batman stories and one of the most unsettling Batman stories I've read. It's probably the only Earth 1/Earth 2 which ever touched upon just how damn unnerving it would be to know that there were doppelgangers of yourself - especially ones who have died. Thoughout the story, the Earth 2 Robin and Batwoman are unsettled by the presence of the double of their dead friend , Batman is similarly unsettled by Batwoman, whose Earth 1 counterpart is dead, Robin can't help but feel resentful of Batman's presence, and Batman feels terribly out of place and spooked by the whole thing.

The story also has one of the most touching and heart wrenching Batman scenes ever, as Batwoman confesses that she had loved Earth 2's Batman, but that one day his whole attitude and approach to her had changed, and she knew, without ever actually being told, that he must have gotten married in his civilian identity.

It's interesting to note that several of Alan's Batman stories utilised parallel worlds. Next time somebody claims that the old Multiverse was nothing but a confusing mess, cite these to them. They couldn't have been done in the current DC Universe, and I refuse to believe that they would have the same impact if done as 'Elseworlds'."
