--Discover Hawkman's connection to Thanagar and why he came to Earth!
Seems like all of the Thanagar stuff which has been set up for the past 9 months or so will at least get some sort of explanation. Whether we get the whole story or not remains to be seen, but it's pretty clear to me that our hero is (in some way or shape) not a human. I don't have a particular problem with that, given my affections for the Silver Age Hawkman. Of course, this hero is no Silver Age Winged Wonder.
This cover is evidently not necessarily the final version; honestly, I wish it was. This is one heck of a pinup cover and Bennett's work looks amazing -- substantially better, I think, than Rob Liefeld's pinup covers we have seen lately.
Hard to believe that the New 52 will be a year old so soon! Yeesh, how time flies! (Pun intended.)
