Waiting In The Wings -- 05/06/2009

What Hawk-related stuff can you expect to find at your local comic shop this week?  Let's find out!

Justice League of America: The Second Coming HC -- In case you missed it in singles, or, like me, don't read the series, you can catch up with Kendra Saunders and her teammates.  This series should be the bees knees, and while it does hit the sales numbers, it just doesn't do it for me.  Tune in tomorrow for a little insight into that.  (Dun dun dunnn!)  Still, this storyline, involving the mysterious Anansi, sounds  good.

Strange Adventures #3 -- The cover promises the return of Synnar, THE COOLEST BAD GUY IN THE UNIVERSE, so perhaps there will be some more revealed as to how the Abberant Six has changed, and what Hawkman's role (if any) will be in it.  Seriously, I get that Synnar is a sort of stand-in for Thanos, but that doesn't make him any less intriguing as a foe, and coupled with the fun stuff Starlin is doing with Adam Strange, Comet, the Weird, Bizarro, et al, this series has been a lot of fun so far.

Trinity #49 -- We're on the home stretch now for this weekly series, which has featured Hawkman from time to time.

Did you read about Dwayne McDuffie's message board shenanigans? He sounds no happier about the end book than you do.

Oh yes, I saw it on LITG the other day and was just flabbergasted by the whole thing.

I'll have more on that tomorrow.
