The issue all about the one and only Nikki Wood. The slayer who would go on to give birth to Robin Wood. She is the slayer with the smallest screen time, other than the Chinese girl Spike killed, but the most talked about. The slayer that everyone wants to know more about. Well Doug Petrie gives us a story all about her!
The story starts with Nikki in bed with her lover, could this be Robin's father? The story doesn't tell us. All we know is that she wanted to tell him the truth about herself but he is killed before she gets the chance.
She tries to stop the man responsible and the cops try to bring her in for questions. She escapes and finds out that they were just transporting vampires in those crates but also a flying bat demon. She fights the bat demon but it takes to air with her on it's back.
Her fear of heights kicks in so she forces it down into the subways where she feels more at home. It isn't long before she manages to kill the bat demon and goes hunting for the man who killed her lover once more. It is a great story, the only bad part is there isn't one following it up. It leaves me wanting more. The job of any good story!
