Bill Blaze dropped Dead Rabbit from their pull list Jan 10, 2019

Dead Rabbit

Nobody ever discovered the truth: he retired to be with the love of his life. Now he's back in the mask to save her, but no one-not his wife, the mafia, or the cops-is happy that he's out of retirement.

This is a good read, although the actual font size seems a bit larger. We have some interaction with Apocalypse this time around. However Nate's goals seem impossible. He will never be able to change humanity's ways.
