Waiting In The Wings -- 12/3/2009
What kind of Hawk-centric merchandise can one expect to find at their local comic shops this week? Let's find out.
Rann-Thanagar Holy War v.2 -- Appropriate that I posted the review of #5 this week, as the second and concluding collection of this series is released. I have a weird sort of obsession with this storyline and it's sequel, in no small part to the issues collected in this volume. Issue #6, which details the history of the Demiurge, was one of my favorite comics of 2008, and introduced the most insanely awesome new badguy in superhero comics since Johns' created the new Zoom. Unfortunately, Jim Starlin is no Geoff Johns nowadays, so it seems that Synnar the Demiurge will remain toiling in obscurity. Still, plenty of Hawkman and friends action for your enjoyment in this book.
