This comic is an adaptation of: Detective Comics (vol. 1) #408 (Feb. 1971): "The House That Haunted Batman!".

The story in this issue consists primarily of a previously published story (15 pages long) along with 3 pages of new framing material (2 pages at the beginning and 1 page at the end). The previously published story is "The House That Haunted Batman!", originally printed in Detective Comics #408 (Feb. 1971), written by Len Wein and Marv Wolfman, pencilled by Neal Adams and inked by Dick Giordano. The framing story (which one archival source labelled "A Little Talk With Rupert Thorne") was written by Len Wein, pencilled by Marshall Rogers, and inked by Dick Giordano.

Technically, the previously published material which makes up the bulk of this issue's story is a "flashback," with the framing material presented as taking place in the current, contemporary time frame.
