The Pilot Season Winner Returns! The tale of a lone, dedicated hero patrolling her nine block suburban neighborhood captured the imaginations of fans during 2008's Pilot Season and after heated voting emerged as one of the winning titles. Now Eisner-nominated creator and writer Troy Hickman (Common Grounds) returns with a four-issue limited series, which will delve into Twilight Guardian's past, her motivations for crimefighting, and even give her an arch-nemesis in the terrifying Dusk Devil!

    This is a really clever idea, executed wonderfully. Hickman is, again, building on the tropes of the superhero to deliver something totally new, and thats always the sort of comic book that will get my attention. Read Full Review

The basic plot of Twilight Guardian patrolling her neighborhood doesn't offer enough of a spark for an entire four issue series, but Hickman realizes that, and makes the Guardian an easily relatable character who finds herself confronted with a mystery. That mystery, the comic peeks, and the revelations of the Twilight Guardian's past and present help make this book another solid offering from Image. Read Full Review
