Artist Jerry Bingham and writer Mike W. Barr come together to tell the story of someone using the name, appearance and methodology of The Reaper and is stalking the streets of Gotham City and killing off mobsters. The catch?

I think I’m most interested in Wolfman writing a Crisis on Infinite Earths tie in for Superman and Gerry Conway bringing back the Justice League Detroit. I have to wonder if they’ll let Flash be Wally though, as Messner-Loebs wrote Wally in his early Flash days, but DC is on a big “Barry!” fix…to the point where I wouldn’t be surprised to see them try and work him into the 90’s too!
