  1. John Morales AKA uglyhooker on

    “SIMON DARK: THE GAME OF LIFE TP” – This sounds like an interesting read! Anyone have any thoughts to share??

  2. I never read this part of the story because at the time I had to cut it loose due to financial reasons, but the series was very intriguing. My only problem with it was setting it in Gotham with no interaction with the Bat, and with the stuff going on in the series, it would’ve been hard to have it without any interaction with him.
