Angel In The Dark last edited by njg5595 on 06/17/20 03:28PM View full history

Following the events of "The Eighth Deadly Sin" in BATMAN ANNUAL #27 and DETECTIVE COMICS ANNUAL #11, the new monthly series starring Death's Dark Knight begins! Michael Lane is a man in search of redemption, but does serving the Order of Purity as God's Angel of Justice bring him closer to achieving his goal - or simply send him further down a road paved with good intentions? When a hired killer comes to Gotham City seeking revenge for crimes committed decades in the past, Azrael faces an impossible conflict: What if God's justice forces the hero to claim one of God's servants? From writer Fabian Nicieza (SUPERMAN, TRINITY) and artist Ramon Bachs (RED ROBIN)!

How many Hail Mary's to Make this book disappear? 0

 Religious fanaticism is not my cup of tea. Watching Fabian Nicieza play hop scotch with flashbacks is not my idea of a good comic, not to mention the juvenile quality of Ramon Bachs' art.
