Hawkman And The Atom Are Buddies (Cry For Justice #5)

From Justice League: Cry For Justice #5, we see that James Robinson knows who the real pals in the League are: Hawkman and The Atom!  The word balloon in the first panel is misplaced, marring the image slightly, but I really liked this exchange.  A lot of folks online have nothing but venom for this series, but so far I have enjoyed it (full disclosure: I have not read all of #5 yet).  It certainly has gotten me interested in seeing what else Robinson is working on in the DCU, from Mon-El over in Superman to his run on the main JLoA title.  

Oh man, but do I dig Mauro Cascioli's art!  I dug it on Trials of Shazam and I am digging it on Cry For Justice.  It'll never happen, but how cool would a regular monthly JLA book by him be?!

So, what do you think happens to Hawkman after Roy leaves the room? Given all the red herrings in the artwork about who the traitor is, the only person whose location I can't account for at the end is Hawkman...

Luke - What do you think about the upcoming Atom/Hawkman issue in January?

Also, Dan DiDio has stated that Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis will be working on a monthly book together after Blackest Night. Rumor has it might be an Atom series with a Hawkman back-up. What do you think?

@Brainy -- I don't think we have seen the perp yet, at least not in that issue. Remember that they talked at length about Prometheus having teleporter technology.

@Shag -- I am super-psyched about the new issue of Hawkman And The Atom! Part of me wishes that it would have some sort of backups from the old series, but otherwise I am very excited. I had not heard the rumor about a new Atom/Hawkman series, but I have been espousing that very idea to Dan DiDio in his Newsarama column for more than a year.
