peck issue 2 begins (again)

Okay, I'm feeling a bit sheepish about this. I'm commencing with Issue #2. Again. Only after a mere four year break.

But they know there's more beneath the surface of this soft-spoken one-armed transient. In this issue, Bacon continues to unfold the mysteries that explain Dent's past. He also reveals the tipping point at which Dent—a mild-mannered waste management engineer by day—becomes a wraith-like crime fighter by night …
