Steve Orlando continues to script the adventures of Firebrand and Neon. In The Unexpected #5, Orlando is joined by artist Ronan Cliquet, just in time for Hawkman to show up.

NIGHTWING #50 – Martin Gray

BATMAN #56 Tom Barnett

There’s nothing particularly amazing with this panel, it’s just well done. The storm seems overwhelming as Batman loses cell signal trudging deeper into the night.

BATMAN #56 – Scott Keys
