Waiting In The Wings -- 11/10/10

We have only one item with actual Hawkstuff in it this week, so we're also going to take a look at some other items from around the DC Universe.

JLA Deluxe Edition v.4 HC -- This hardcover collection of Grant Morrison's time on JLA includes a big blowout battle against the Injustice League as well as a throwdown with the Crime Syndikate.  Hawkgirl figures into this collection, and if you squint you can see her on the cover as well.

All-New Batman: The Brave And The Bold #1 -- I've read an issue here and there of the earlier version of this series, and it's great fun, just like the TV show.  Not sure why they relaunched it, but if the quality remains the same DC should have a contestant winner here.

DC Comics Presents: Brightest Day #2 -- I bought the first one of these "psuedo-trades" because it featured two issues of Hawkman v.4 which have never been collected anywhere else.  Some folks balk at the $7.99 price tag, but really, for 96 pages and no ads, that's not bad at all, considering that most "true" trade paperbacks nearly twice that price don't have twice the page count.  Case in point: the Justice League of America: When Worlds Collide trade from last month was $14.99 for 176 pages.  So the pricing is right in line with these, and they seem to reprinting stuff you can't find elsewhere.  So I am cool with it.  This issue focuses on Firestorm and the Martian Manhunter, so I may pick it up as well, although we know what Frank thinks about J'Onn's adventures under Mandrake...

Ame-Comi Steel PVC Figure -- At first I thought this was going to be a meka'd out version of John Henry Irons, but alas, it's his niece.  Which makes more sense, but man, a Super Robot-esque (because I don't think they would make him Real Robot style) Steel would be pretty sweet!
