"In 2009, Slam featured in the "Heart of Hush" story arc (Detective Comics #846-850)."

DC Comics: Year by Year a Visual Chronicle

"There is a reason that all things are as they are, and did you see with my eyes and know with my knowledge, you would perhaps better understand." Dracula. Which reminds me, I really need to like. Finish it.

There was no refusing, however inconvenient it might have seemed to fight a war with Meissen porcelain under one arm.


Atonement - Ian McEwan
