The Dart And Ace

The splash page of this comic, posted on Four Color Shadows, explains that The Dart is the reincarnation of an ancient Roman crime-fighter.  The secret identity of this modern incarnation is that of a teacher of ancient Roman history, whose first and middle names are the same as his ancient forebear.  Not trying to keep the secret identity too secret, are we?  There is no history on why an ancient Roman hero has a sidekick named "Ace" whose primary weapon is a baseball bat.  Enjoy.
