Joe Kubert Presents: Hawkman

DC sure picked an odd time to announce the long-rumored Joe Kubert Presents miniseries!  Still, I'll take Hawk news this cool on any holiday DC wants to give it to me.  From The Source:

This fall, don’t miss the start of a far-ranging collection of stories from comics legend Joe Kubert (BEFORE WATCHMEN: NITE OWL) and other great talents. A six-issue anthology mini-series, JOE KUBERT PRESENTS kicks off on October 31st.

The inaugural issue spans 48 pages and includes a Hawkman epic written and illustrated by Kubert, a tale of Angel and The Ape from writer/artist Brian Buniak, and a return to comics for writer/artist Sam Glanzman with a new tale of the U.S.S. Stevens.

The image they gave has a real Tor vibe to it, which would be fine with me as I am a big fan of Kubert's prehistoric works.  Of course, I am also a huge fan of his Hawk stuff, so this seems right up my alley -- and if you are reading it here, probably yours, as well.

Great bit of news to get to top off a heck of an Independence Day here with the family!

H/T to Matt Orr for Tweeting this!

What? What? WHAT???

Did I read that right? There is going to be a NEW Hawkman story done by JOE KUBERT!!!!

SEVEN HELLS!!! The only way I could be more excited about this would be if they reanimated Gardner Fox so he could write it!
