Remember "Sexual Gary"? What was up with that guy? The brilliant RACHAEL STOTT (Supergirl, Doctor Who) drew a story so crazy it had to be told, but not by Chip, who was still a big part of the whole thing.

I mean, I think I mostly agree with the concepts here, but as a story about the Question, I find myself unsatisfied. This didn’t feel like it progressed the character in a meaningful way. I really enjoyed the art, but I think that’s because it just made me think of Denny O’Neil’s run.
