Hawkman comes face to face with Jim Craddock, a.k.a. the Gentleman Ghost, a malevolent spirit obsessed with finding an ancient relic called the Mortis Orb. Can Hawkman stop Craddock from using the power of the Orb to unleash hell on Earth?
Wow! That's the new Gentleman Ghost? Definitely a different take on the traditionally spectral foe. I am guessing he is tied in with the zombies on the cover to #5? The how and the why of this new "Gentleman" Jim Craddock definitely has me itching to read this story. Readers of this blog will remember that Gentleman Ghost was one of my predictions for classic Hawkfoes who would show up in the new series sooner rather than later, and it looks like I was right on that front.
Philip Tan is really knocking it out of the park on these covers. I'd really like a "Savage Hawkman Cover Gallery" special. What do you say DC?
Also, James Bonney is once more credited as a co-writer with Tony Daniel. How long will this collaboration last? We'll have to wait and see!
