Jutst Read: The Savage Hawkman #12

Found myself a reader copy of The Savage Hawkman #12, as I have to wait until next week for my box from DCBS to ship.  So expect a full review then, but for now here are some quick thoughts on the final issue before Zero Month.

After another well staged fight, this time against Pike, Hawkman finds his horizons start to open up, as things get real heavy real fast for our hero.  And this is only the beginning, it seems!

We get a nice mix of action, exposition (it has to go somewhere), and teasing in this issue.  As a lead-in to Zero Month, which is supposed to tell of Hawkman's origins, I can't think of a better way to end things here.  We're about to get a lot of information before we set out on a new adventure, and the tease at the end here really whets my appetite to find out what the story is.  Of course, now we have to speculate about what story we will actually get -- and who the credited writer is going to be -- but never mind that; for now, let's just enjoy some straight up superhero comics.
