He look like Wolverine, beside that he looks cool!:grinning:


Yes! Another Duke Special! I hope Cass shows up here. They were great together in Outsiders.


He was in The Outsiders?! Man, I’ve got some catching up to do!!
(Yup, there he is, right there on the cover of issue #1 … I swear this was on my pull list, but I’ve never read it!)
Hope we get to learn of more fictional thrash metal bands on his playlist…


These Secret Files one-shots look like fun, but I’ll catch them as they come to DCUI. My reading list is full as it is.
