STARRING HEROES FROM CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS! Hawkman and Hawkgirl put their Shadow War on hold as they face the might of anthropomorphic rat-men and bat-men in the deadly land of Kamandi!
Alright: The Albuquerque cover is fantastic! Our Pinnioned Powerhouses look resplendant in their Pre-Crisis glory, with Hawkman looking every bit the warrior from another planet, and Hawkwoman (they call her "Hawkgirl," but if this is Shadow War era, Shay is Hawkwoman by this point) looking suitably sleek and powerful. I especially like the glare in Katar's eyes and the contrast of Shayera's mask hiding her expression. The "Gotham City" sign coupled with the solicit suggests to me that this will take place in the ruined remains of the city, but who knows?
The Variant cover is "designed" by Chip Kidd; appropriate, as Kidd is best known as a graphic designer more than "artist" in the traditional comics sense. I will reserve judgement until I see it, but fair warning, it's going to have to be pretty spectacular to beat that Albuquerque cover.
The rest of the solicit is the same as was previously released, but I am no less excited for it.
As more of these solicits are revealed, I am getting more and more excited for Convergence. Looks like DC readers should be in for a treat of a throwdown.
