"Bitch Slap" (蝙蝠扇)
"Bitch Slap" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
In the heart of the city's darkest alleys, a mysterious figure lurks, draped in shadows and shrouded in legend. Known only by his moniker, the Dark Knight, he is the city's silent sentinel, its elusive guardian against the tide of crime.
Clad in midnight armor, he moves with the grace of a dancer, his cape billowing behind him like a wraith. Yet, despite his imposing presence, even the Dark Avenger has his moments of frustration. He frequently laments the occupational hazards of vigilantism. "Who knew," he mutters, "that dodging plungers and rubber chickens would be part of the job description? It's like a slap in the face, but I'll keep dancing through the chaos."
Adding to his vexation, he often finds himself saddled with an incompetent sidekick, whose well-meaning but bumbling efforts can be more hindrance than help. Yet, despite the challenges and absurdities, like a creature of the night, he remains steadfast, a silent protector of the city, forever dancing on the edge of annoyance and heroism. It’s hard work, but someone’s got to do it. Let’s at least give him a hand, he’s earned it!
