At some point in between adventures, and without explanation, Bob White AKA Nightmare exchanged his cool phosphorescent skeleton costume for a more commonplace spandex hero outfit. Nevertheless he, like his sidekick, was still capable of badassery, as this story shows.

The next day, Nightmare received a letter from Bruce Wayne's lawyers.

So, where there any issues after this one due to the costume change? I'd imagine it'd stick for at least one more issue and Nightmare would go back to that skeleton costume. (Maybe for being too superhero, as Nigthmare's a vigilante who inspires fear in criminals like Batman, the Phantom and the Shadow)

Holy shit, that panel of "Bob White wrestling in a nearby arena." That ain't wrestling. That ain't even a vintage 40's homoerotic depiction of wrestling. That's one Shoggoth proudly using a dozen translucent appendages to hold aloft its collection of manly human body parts, is what that is.

"So I'll just balance Bob's tired scowl on my third-favorite sinewy elbow joint, scatter a few wrists and ankles across a bed of scapulas and...voila! Horror."

But yeah, this new costume is BS. It's not a real Nightmare unless there's too many teeth and too much tongue.

Also, I feel like superheroes should probably prioritize saving the gunshot victim over retrieving the stolen cash box. I know you're excited about eating "Big" tonight, Sleepy, but your dough is not quite as important as the clerk's sucking chest wound.

One has to admire the state of photography in 17th Century. Also man does Nightmare recover from a crushed foot fast.

I misread the opening as "pillaged and pleasured"

Which I mean....unfortunately they did do.

Also the boy is named sleepy..
and they eat out at night
and they eat big.....

Partying was not all they did at Baron Bledford's.......I assume.

I need Jesus.

I know this is old, but... The art is so bad that it is confusing.
