Bring out yer dead!
I’m no doctor, but my prescription for most of what ails you is to not live in the past, least of all Victorian Gotham. It’s just a bad idea, and you’re much better off in the future. Not Gotham. Pretty much anywhere else. This week, Jonah Hex and Doc Arkham find themselves shin-deep in moldering Gothamites, each corpse more ghoulish than the gargoyle overhead. This is the story of the man at the center of the epidemic, of a man who sought to murder an entire city.
Meanwhile, did you know there was a Stormwatch agency in the 19th century? Bet your bonnet there was!
