Notes Trivia:
The cover art holds some resemblance to the cover of Detective Comics #27, the first appearance of Batman. It is possible that this cover is a homage to the classic Golden Age issue.
In the issue, there is a business contact of Bruce Wayne by the name of Broome, who is needed in France. This is a clear reference to previous Batman writer and Julius Schwartz's personal friend John Broome, who was then living in the European country.
The "Reed Galleries" is also a nod to the current Batman writer, David Vern Reed, who also wrote Batman in the Silver Age.
