If murder and suicide are sins before God, then what if you were asked to kill in the name of God and by doing so, it would ultimately kill you?

And while large issues of life and death, morality and eternal salvation are weighed, Azrael must also confront the two parties interested in regaining the Suit of Sorrows: Talia al Ghul and Nightwing! 32 pages, Full Color.
