In the margins of every adventure story there are stories untold and heroes unsung. This episode we step into the spaces between the comic-book panels for a very special story. If you've ever wondered about The Red Panda's oft-mentioned, never-seen "agents"... or if you've ever simply stared out over the rooftops of your city and dreamed of being a hero; you won't want to miss a moment of When Darkness Falls[1]!
