Waiting In The Wings -- 10/13/2010

Any new Hawkman or Hawkgirl stuff in stores this week?  Let's look and see!

DC Comics Presents: Brightest Day #1 -- The new DC Comics Presents line is a series of low cost reprints featuring characters which are currently being featured in a major storyline; hence, this issue contains stories with both Hawkman and Deadman.  The solicitation says the following:

Spotlighting Hawkman and Deadman – two of the characters who returned after BLACKEST NIGHT to usher in BRIGHTEST DAY to the DC Universe! This volume collects several hard-to-find stories including tales from HAWKMAN #27, 34 and 36, SOLO #8, DCU HOLIDAY '09 and STRANGE ADVENTURES #205. Everything from the first appearance of Deadman to a team-up between he and Hawkman can be found here!

The three issues of Hawkman are all from Volume 4 (there was never an issue 34 or 36 for any other volume!), and are all standalone.  Of particular interest is that none of them have ever been collected before, and it is unlikely that they will be.  The Volume 4 trades jump from the Headhunter story at the end of the third collection (v.4:no.25) to the Golden Eagle story (v.4:no.37).  So I am probably going to pick this up just to fill in 34 and 36, both of which I need.
