1515And here’s the build-up to the big climactic battle, which we’ll be seeing over the course of this week.  Here, we get another sense of the respect – love, even – that The Dawn has for The Standard, and the reluctance with which he enters into this fight.  And from The Standard, too, there is a sense of dutifully stepping into a fight he knows he can’t win.

I love that last panel!  One of the great, iconic images of the series we’ve used in various promotional banners.
