> This Dexter guy is some bastard, huh? Rockman isn't living in a dream, he's haunted. Anyone reading this think that he's happier and better off beating the floor obsessively day and night non-stop than being told the truth and getting some psychiatric help?

You know, i'd almost agree with the decision, if it weren't a living descendant who was explaining Rockman's past. Simply letting her leave disillusioned was poor. I mean, even if Rockman can come to grips with reality, it would have been helpful to have family to lean on. Bascically, they just let his one chance at SOME semblance of normalcy evaporate. Maybe she'll be back?

> On another note, hopefully that radio review we heard early in the issue is as much of the Blue Blade's show as we have to endure. I doubt it very much, but I'm hoping.

Probably not, but I suspect he'll be getting cancelled at some point. Maybe we'll just jump forward to that.

> Phantom Reporter puts "the suit" back on in order to impress Claire? Can't wait to see where this goes.
> And that second to last page confused me. Are we supposed to assume that Dynamic Man went back and destroyed the gay bar? Was Claire's "strike" at the bar, or a totally different place?

BW is sitting on a couch of some kind, so I assume that she's not at that bar. My initial thought was that somebody massacred all those people, but we don't know who yet.
Right now, I think it may be a safe bet that one of the Twelve has sold their soul to the devil, and it'll be BW's job to collect.

I heard the religion joke before too. It still was funny here in this context.
