Waiting In The Wings -- 6/23/2010
A cursory look over the Diamond shipping lists suggests that no Hawkstuff is due out this week, so instead let's take a look at some of the more interesting DC offerings.
Green Arrow #1 -- This relaunch has sort of sputtered out. I think a good portion of that is that the old Green Arrow book ended a few months back and Rise of Arsenal has not been all that great. That said, this new direction for the Number One Frenemy of Hawkman looks like it might be worth checking out.
Superman #700/Supergirl #53 -- The first two of the post-New Krypton Superbooks (with Action coming next week) should give us an idea of what we can expect going forward for the titles. Superman has gotten a ton of hype thanks to JMS, who launches his story about Superman walking across America (except, apparently, the South), while Supergirl has had some very intiguing covers solicited.
Zatanna #2 -- I picked up #1 on a recommendation from the boys over at the Alternate Reality podcast and enjoyed it. I like how Dini has defined a role for Zee -- as the ambassador of magic to the mortal realm -- while also establishing the beginnings of a Rogues Gallery for her as well.
