The HC wiki last edited by pikahyper on 03/21/14 11:59AM View full history

Writer J. Michael Straczynski is joined by artist Andy Kubert in flight with the gadget-savvy hero known as Nite Owl, as Dan Dreiberg inherits the role from Hollis Mason...but can Dreiberg work with the vigilante called Rorschach?
