Could DC really be bringing Doc Savage back to comic books?  Will they try to resurrect the Doc Savage and Son series from the late 1980’s that started well, but failed in the end?  Who is attached to that mysterious shadow on the other wall?  Could this be a page from grant morrison’s Multiversity, The Spirit meeting another contemporary, or is this simply Adam Strange striking a familiar pose?

    No, that’s Doc. He even has the original Clark Gable hair and in the background you can see on the left side amesoamerican pyramid. Hidalgo calling!

    Has the FULL Wednesday Comics lineup been announced? If not Dan-D just dropped a “major spoiler”… And what is this “Multiversity” of which you speak??? As much as I am disintrigued by g-mo, I’m a sucker for multiverses and am curious on that level at the very least (and I do mean “very least”). :D

    Multiversity is morrison’s upcoming project where he is going to focus on five of the Earth’s in the multiverse. I know one is the Earth-5 – Shazam, which he says will be very kid friendly, and Earth-3/4/6? I forget which one at the moment, where he focuses on the Charleston characters, so expect to see The Question return!

    If they keep it classic/timeless and don’t try to “update” it then it will work. Most properties tank when that happens. Let’s hope they learned their lesson. Don’t make him gritty and “modern”…just make him Doc Savage.
