Cloak & Dagger

Pitchfork has an article today on the comic book characters Cloak & Dagger. How weird is that?

I have the original limited series from the early 1980s. It was probably a little over my head at the time, what with Dagger's revealing costume, and the quasi-religious overtones of Cloak and the villains. A little over-the-top for a news stand comic. In retrospect I remember the comic being sort of like Daredevil crossed with John Constantine. Or something. I'll have to dig it out and have another look.
