He Strongly Dislikes Crime

"He Strongly Dislikes Crime" from Vigilante vol.1 #1 (DC, 1983) by Marv Wolfman, Keith Pollard and Dick Giordano
I don't know very much about this series, except what I've read about it, mostly because I've never had much interest in the Punisher, and this was DC's answer to Frank Castle's popularity. (Is it me or did Marv Wolfman's 80s DC career consist almost entirely of trying to steal Marvel's thunder?) So what HAVE I read about Vigilante? Basically that though the creator, Wolfman's issues aren't very interesting, while Kupperberg's later issues actually do something interesting with the character. But so much other stuff to read before I ever get to this.

  1. Still a cool costume, though. Another Perez design?

  2. Yes! Vigilante first appeared in an issue of New Teen Titans!
