Synopsis:
The creative team behind Ambush Bug gathers to discuss the missing dialogue from issue #2, resulting in the death of Dan Didio. When Mitsu Bishi won't help Argh!yle prove that Dan Didio and Ambush Bug were one and the same, the villain sends Mitsu to Batman's Secret Space Prison for Embarassments from His Past, while he continues to look for proof that Ambush Bug is gone forever. After Ambush Bug delivers the eulogy at Dan Didio's funeral, and as Argh!yle faces Rip Hunter's housekeeper, Ambush Bug takes on the Ambush Bug Revenge Squad, a group of obsessive comic fans.

Indexer Notes

Robert Loren Fleming is drawn Archie Andrews-esque. It looks like Superman is a member of the Ambush Bug Revenge Squad.
