"The Masked Menace of the Boys' School"Edit

Robin tackles his first solo adventure/case, which Batman (nevertheless) winds up helping him wrap up.

Dick Grayson enrolls in a boys school where a murder has recently occurred and a boy is missing. Dick learns that the murder was committed by an escaped lunatic and captures him as Robin. However the boy is still missing, and Blake, the school headmaster, turns up dead. Robin meets a masked man and follows him. The man is Graves, the art teacher. He and Blake ran a counterfeiting operation from the school. Robin locates the missing boy, and with Batman’s help, stops Graves and his men.
