I Want You to Pray

"I Want You to Pray" from The Question vol.1 #3 (DC, 1987) by Dennis O'Neil, Denys Cowan and Rick Magyar
Screw whatever mystical mumbo-jumbo they're doing with the Question these days, the real Question comics to read (and I aim to complete the collection and do so) are the O'Neil-Cowan three-year run (turning into a renumbered Quarterly after that). It's dark, gritty and realistic, which are usually dirty words when I use them, but it's more a matter of each book having an appropriate tone instead of painting an entire universe with the same (dreary) brush. Looks a far cry from the Question who first showed up in DC's Blue Beetle, but he wasn't in Hub City then. A place can change a person.
