Her name is Rachel Pyre. She is a detective. that means long hours, shit pay and lots of stress. but rachel loves what she does.

So when (in the midst of her third morning espresso) she spotted the man known only as ‘Mendoza’ crossing the road and entering the nate stark warehouse she followed.


she also called back-up

Stop! I am the one responsible for you being here.

later that evening, after filling out reams of paperwork, rachel has arrived home to some much needed relaxation...

... national defense refused to comment on the story, but rumours persist of a so called ‘super-hero’ team operating under their banner.

in other news the U.N. today passed the international genetic database bill, authorising the permanent record of genetic material for use as evidence in criminal investigations across the globe.


Whatever it was that Mendoza did to her has left Rachel exhausted.


what the shit?


where is...

nova-x?!


a small piece of rob and stew history here. this letter dated october 29 1996 was Wildstorm’s response to a submission we’d sent A FEW MONTHS PRIOR. SOMEHOW OUR NAMES GOT MUDDLED UP IN DAN NAkrosis head, mistaking rob as the writer and stewart as the artist, but the feedback was still fantastic and at the time a real shot of enthusiasm to keep making comics. by the way the ‘P.S.’ about the steak knives was in response to a letter we sent with the artwork, promising the reader a set of steak knives if they responded... ...I hope that somewhere in the world, poor dan isn’t still waiting by the mailbox for them to arrive.
