"The End" Week: Bloodhound #10!

Do you remember, when Family Guy returned from cancellation, and Peter rattles off a bloody ream of cancelled Fox shows? Today's book is like one of those cancelled shows: you're vaguely aware of it coming and just as suddenly going. Maybe you liked it, maybe you watched one episode, maybe you only barely remember seeing it listed. Today we've got from 2005, Bloodhound #10, "Ashes to Ashes" Written by Dan Jolley, pencils by Leonard Kirk, inks by Robin Riggs.

This is one from the quarter bin, and I haven't read the prior issues, and there's not a lot of recap either. By this point, they may have figured you were reading it, or you won't. Clevenger (the Bloodhound) and Agent Saffron Bell (I'm not sure agent of what) are investigating mysterious arson, created by a metagene-positive abused boy. The mention of the metagene and of Gotham City later in the issue, tell you it's set in the DC Universe; but I'm not sure if any of the other characters appeared prior.
Clev was apparently unpowered, but those look like mighty severe burns...
DC gave it a shot, but I think there were more than a few books around that time that came and went. Well, they tried, and I think Jolley and Kirk both went on to a batch of other work.
