Justice League of America #7.3: Shadow Thief Solicit!

September has become the new annual month for special events at DC Comics, and this one is no exception as the Forever Evil miniseries spawns an entire month of villain-centric issues, as the bad guys take over all of the titles.  As Hawkman ostensibly stars in Justice League of America, one of the four JLoA books stars none other than the new Shadow-Thief!  Take it away, solicits!

Written by TOM DeFALCO
3-D motion cover by TONY S. DANIEL and MATT BANNING
On sale SEPTEMBER 18 • 32 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T
Where is the line between duty and villainy? For the new Shadow Thief, there is no question: Her mission to eradicate all alien life on Earth is above questions of morality. Armed with technology that allows her to become a living shadow, the Shadow Thief wages a covert war across the globe, but how long can she stay in the shadows before they consume her soul?

Very intriguing!  In the short amount of time we got to know her, the new Thief was a very mysterious character, so getting a whole issue to focus on her and establish her for use in the larger DCU is a nice bone being thrown to us Hawkfans by the DC Braintrust.  Artist Chad Hardin is known to me from his work on the modern Warlord title from DC, which I really dug, so all good there.  Although it is a little ironic that Tony Daniel (the initial writer of Savage Hawkman) is doing the cover!

I do have to ask -- does she have the hyphen, or not?

There's a whole slew of cool-sounding baddie books coming out in September (Eclipso!  Creeper!  Man-Bat!  Killer Frost!  Reverse Flash!  Brainiac!  And so forth!), so DC has found a way to get even more of my money.  You can find all of the Villains Month solicitations right here.

Will you be picking up the Shadow Thief one-shot?  What other Villains Month books will you get?

I never read her appearance in SAVAGE HAWKMAN, but the classic Shadow Thief is one of my favorite DC villains, so I'll pick this issue up and see what she's like.
