Waiting In The Wings -- 05/26/2010

There's only one product out this week which features Hawkman and Hawkgirl, but it's a real doozy!

Wednesday Comics HC -- Collecting the entire broadsheet series in one oversized hardcover, this book of course contains all twelve installments of Kyle Baker's Hawkman strip, which features a plane being hijacked by intergalactic terrorists, Hawkgirl piloting their spaceship against an alien armada, and a fight with a tyrannosaurus.  I was cool to this strip at first but warmed up to it as it continued.  Baker is still not terribly suited to Hawkman but his style is certainly unique.  Most of the other strips were really good, and this is a very tempting piece to have sitting on the coffee table -- although, for $50, this is a bit too rich for my blood, considering I have all of the individual issues!

This also serves as a nice kick in the butt that dang it I need to write up the Wednesday Comics summaries!

Bring on the Wednesday Comics summaries! I didn't pick up the series and the hardcover is a little too steep for my blood right now. I'd love to hear what you thought!

This HC, by the way, is freaking HUGE!
