The Atom And Hawkman Coming Back?


Well, for one month at least!  DC announced at the current Baltimore Retailer's Summit, DC Head Honcho (and upcoming Outsiders scribe) Dan DiDio announced that in January, 8 titles are being resurrected as part of Blackest Night, and The Atom And Hawkman is one of them.  It's even coming back with it's original numbering (and we didn't even have to send in any postcards or anything).

From The Source:

- ATOM AND HAWKMAN #46 Geoff [Johns] brings you the double date from Hell, The Black Lantern Hawks work to reunite Atom with his long dead love, Jean Loring.

You can see a little bit of the cover, although it is in black and white and negative-reversed, and obscured, in the image.  To me, it looks like Jean Loring is the Slaver Queen, which I guess makes perfect sense!

Of course, here at Being Carter Hall we have been calling for the return of The Atom And Hawkman as a $3.99 co-feature title for months now.  While this is not quite that awesome, it is definitely a step in the right direction.  Should be a cool event, and I am definitely looking forward to seeing all the classic trade dress in play!
