Note: Artist Dou Hong returns to P:R with a revitalizing take on a DC character most of you have probably never heard of. But fear not, Hong makes this a character you’d want to read. The Negotiator is the herald for the Reach, an ancient warlike race that created the scarab that Jaime Reyes wears as the Blue Beetle. The Negotiator has been popping up recently in the Young Justice cartoon series, and Hong’s redesign here makes me clamor for more in comics. – Chris A.
