- Full Description
Super-thief meets super-hero as Image Comics' Red Hook teams up with the Night Watchman (a Spirit/Phantom Stranger pastiche) to travel back in time to save Brooklyn's first super-hero, a woman of mystery named Luna. She has been erased from history by a super-villain harboring an unhealthy obsession. A tribute to comics' Golden Age. Emmmy Award-winner Dean Haspiel is creator of Red Hook. One of three covers, Cover A by Dean Haspiel, Cover B by Emily Pearson (Dino!), and Cover C a special gatefold by Simon Fraser, honoring Golden Age greats Jack Cole, Tarpé Mills, and Bill Finger.
It's a funny story for someone like me, not familiar with Red Hook. He's a somewhat inept costumed thief, who bumps into this strange mystery. Who is this woman who appears in such a life-like statue on the boardwalk? Along comes the Night Watchbook, another throwback to 1940s heroes, who is going to take Hook and himself back in time to prevent Luna from being erased from history. We find Luna fighting bad guys before 1900, but can our boys deal with a strange villain who is planning to change the future and turn poor Luna, and himself, into statues locked in time.
It's a homage to 1940s heroes and heroines, with a strange unpolished edge in both art and story, and yet it still somehow works.
