Waiting In The Wings -- 1/20/2010
Is there any Hawk-related swag available this week at our respective local comic shops? Let's take a look and see!
Green Lantern Corps #44 -- Possible Black Lantern Hawkman and Hawkgirl, or Khufu and Chay-era sightings.
Justice League of America: Sanctuary TPB -- Reprinting Justice League of America v.4:no.17-21, this collection by Dwayne McDuffie and Alan Burnett features Hawkgirl during her stint with the team. It really is unfortunate that Mac never got to really flesh out some of his plans for Kendra (as detailed on this blog some time in... yeesh... 2008?!), because I think it would have done her character some good. Team books are always good for sending characters without solo titles on their own Heroic Journeys, and I think that Kendra could have been rounded out a little bit more from it. Of course that was not to be. Still, this volume looks pretty neat.
Justice League of America Special -- This Special is not on the Diamond list but it is on the DC website, and it collects the first issue of volume 4 along with several origin stories from 52 and Absolute Superman: For Tomorrow. I picked this one up when it was new and thought it was a strong launch issue, although history has told us that Metzler's run sorta just petered out.
