Waiting In The Wings -- 10/07/2009
Can we expect to find anything related to the Winged Wonders this week at the local comic shop? Let's find out.
JLA Mini Neon Sign -- Yeah, we're feeling the loss of Wednesday Comics with the inclusion of this item right here. Considering the rate at which DC is putting these things out, we should be getting a Hawkman sign right after Martian Manhunter and right before the Phantom Stranger.
Superman: World of New Krypton #8 -- Featuring an encounter between the New Kryptonians and Hawkman's "people," the Thanagarians. Is the solicitation text just a mistake, or is it a subtle hint that there is more to this than meets the eye? I really think that Dan DiDio wants a Space Cop Hawkman winging around the DCU, so you can bet I am going to be reading this issue with a fine toothed comb for any potential candidates for a "new" Katar Hol.
Wow... that would be an elegant solution, wouldn't it? Just make a new Hawkman, not named Katar and start with a blank slate? Sure it would piss off lots of people but maybe you could give him memory implants via an Absorbascon or something. That'd give us our Space Cop with all the continuity baggage, for sure!
