Written by Rick Leonardi, Marv Wolfman. In New York City, crime is on the rise, and terror fills the streets. Gang warfare is escalating, and metahumans are being drafted into battle. Through the corruption and lawlessness, one man emerges to right the wrongs as only he can. So when a Super Hero conspiracy plot is brought to light, the Vigilante returns to find the traitor and mete out his own brand of justice - with extreme prejudice! Join us as writer Marv Wolfman (NEW TEEN TITANS, CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS) continues the street-level adventures of the mysterious new crime fighter he introduced in the pages of NIGHTWING.

This volume collects the Teen Titans annual that introduced the character, along with the first 11 issues of the comic series. It was a time when the series was really taking off and giving some of the best stories of its run. Ultimately, Adrian Chase's story would end in fifty issues but it started off with villains like the Electrocutioner, and Cannon. They were original villains that worked perfectly for Vigilante. It was a series built on the secret identity as much as on the hero, with Adrian Chase finding frustrations at work and in his personal life. Even Cyborg stops by for an issue to throw down.
Over time, the series faced problems and took some strange turns before finding its feet again in the final ten issues. I hope they collect them all eventually so we can see Adrian's complete journey (though DC messed up the ending simply because they had no idea what to do with the character anymore).
