This story and its sequel, Batman and the Mad Monk take place in between Batman: Year One and Batman: The Man Who Laughs. Jim Gordon has recently been promoted to Captain and Peter Grogan has just replaced the corrupt, Mob-affiliated Gillian "Gil" Loeb as Police Commissioner.
One of Batman's early encounters with a villain known as "The Red Hood" occurs some time shortly before this story begins, indicated by the fact that a newspaper headline depicted on the opening page reads: "Red Hood Gone? Eyewitnesses claim mystery thief falls to doom after Ace Chemical heist attempt foiled by run-in with vigilante Bat-Man". The incident at Ace Chemical, depicted as flashbacks in Batman: The Killing Joke, transformed the Red Hood into The Joker, who makes his first appearance in The Man Who Laughs.
Instead of being an actress as in her Golden Age incarnation, Julie is a freshly graduated law student.
Jim Gordon is shown to still be married to his first wife, Barbara Kean-Gordon, who leaves him shortly after the events of Batman: The Long Halloween and returns to him in Batman: Dark Victory.
