So back in the DC Universe in the late nineties, the second Green Arrow, Connor Hawke, whooped a guy named the Silver Monkey. He was part of the Brotherhood of the Monkey Fist, a group that didn’t take too kindly to this loss. To redeem themselves, the group decided to kill every non-powered martial artist in the DC Universe, including not only Connor Hawke, but the entire Batman family.
One of my all time favorite comics, Nightwing #23, takes place during this story line. It features versions of most of my favorite characters by my favorite artist, Scott McDaniel. In the story, our heroes split up to look for the parts of the Brotherhood who are hiding in Gotham.
Then this happens:
My favorite hero, drawn in a cool pose by my favorite artist, sings a line from my favorite band, the Monkees. Unexpected perfection! A big thank you to one of my favorite writers, Chuck Dixon, for throwing this moment in the middle of the action.
