We spend most the story on Jimmy McCoy and his rise from low level punk to gang lord. A series of pranks ends with him going to reform school, which only teaches Jimmy how to be better crook, but only to extent. His next caper gets him a year in prison, which teaches him more, but he gets picked up on tax evasion next.
Out after ten years, Jimmy wants to retake the streets. The problem is that while he was away, crime continued. "Big" Costello has moved into Jimmy's old rackets and taken most of his old gang. Jimmy aims to settle the score and make himself the big man once again.
Pretty good, although Batman and Robin come across as more extras than anything else. This particular yarn could just as easily been told in any 'Crime Does Not Pay' mags that were sold at the time.
