Gotham City has seen more that its fair share of odd things over the years — perhaps more than any other city anywhere.
But the city already under the watchful eye of a Bat, a Robin, a Cat and various and sundry other vigilante/heroes, has got a new protector. He lurks in the shadows near the burned out remains of the Sacred Martyr Church, quietly helping those in need and protecting those in danger.
He is Simon Dark.
This acrobatic and brutal community guardian is also confined to the shadows by the fact he would scare the life out of most who saw his Frankenstein’s monster-esque composite self.
His past is a mystery, but his present is clear: Learn, grow and keep his neighbourhood safe.
From the minds of horror master Steve Niles (30 Days Of Night) and artist Scott Hampton comes a dark and delightful new series sure to get under your skin.
