• HAWKMAN vs. ST. BASTION – with PIKE, an incredible assassin with key info about Hawkman's past, caught in the middle!
I am guessing that the Diehard-looking person on the cover is the aforementioned Pike, as we have seen St. Bastion previously. One thing you can always say about Rob Liefeld is that he likes to introduce new characters, and this does not seem to be any different here. We haven't seen the first Liefeld issue yet, so I still am not sure what we're going to get, but from all of the solicitations we have seen and the hype we have heard, I think it's a safe bet that it's going to be action-heavy. So, personally, I am hoping for some straightforward Fighty McFightenstein (TM Andrew Leyland) superheroics. Also, I would like to point out that this image may be the best Hawkman image we have seen from Rob Liefeld so far -- use that comment as you will.
EARTH 2 #4

• THE GREEN LANTERN, THE FLASH and HAWKGIRL in action!
• The debut of the all-new ATOM SMASHER!
• A monstrous evil claws its way out of the poisoned soil of EARTH 2!
What can you say about this solicit? It hits the right notes and has me interested in reading it -- I mean, Alan Scott, Jay Garrick, and a new Hawkgirl in action? Just go ahead and take my 3 bucks already. I have to wonder, we saw Al Pratt in the first issue, will he be the new Atom Smasher -- as opposed to The Atom? Either one works for me, honestly. This book is shaping up to all sorts of crazy and I'm eager to see how it unfolds.
So folks, what do you think? Do these solicits make you interested in reading about these Winged Wonders?
