Parents worry. A very short sentence, but one that rings true everytime. Parents are always concerned about the well being of their children, be they 5 or 50. This is the main ingredient in the stew that is John Saul's novel, The God Project. Written in 1982, Saul was interestingly prolific about his use of technology in his novel, technology that has come to exist on one level or another. The story of the death and disappearance of children, parental woe and inquiry, cover-ups, subterfuge, and medical miracles are what make up this story . . . so far. This is based on the graphic novelization published by Bluewater Comics, written by David McIntee, based on the work of John Saul, and penciled by Federico De Luca.

Nite Owl #2 sort of gives us that Nite Owl/Rorschach team-up we've been looking for. We certainly get a closer look at their friendship, the different reasons they chose to don an alternate identity, and their respective messed up relationships with women, notably their mothers. The dialogue between them isn't as comedic as in Issue #1, but those who thought there were too many “Hurms” from Rorschach in Issue #1 will be pleased to note there isn't a single one in Issue #2. Nite Owl #2 again makes great use of flashbacks to fill in gaps in the characters' histories. In particular, the flashback of a young Dan first making an attachment to Nite Owl is particularly well executed.
