Or – “My Power Infests All Times, All Galaxies, All Dimensions…” *REVIEW The Savage Hawkman of Thanagar! Carter Hall, aka Katar Hol, has had more origins than many heroes have actual published issues. This latest version has found that the Nth Metal that once made up his wings has now infused his body, allowing him to create armor and weapons to fight evil. But what good is a mace against an intangible ghost?
What started out as an ensemble piece featuring world famous detectives doing what they do best eventually found itself focusing on one detective – the Dark Knight. Some 70 years later, DC has seen fit to relaunch/reboot the series, and Stephen and Matthew have been tasked with sorting out the pieces.
If you are trying to strike fear into the hearts of the criminals and scum of the world, you probably don’t want a kid friendly man in tights running around in broad daylight fighting crime.Â Tony Daniel’s cover to Batman #694 is adequately spooky enough to make even the law abiding citizen tremble a little.
With all the exciting goings on in the Batman universe these days, it would seem like every issue would be a winner. While the Falcone Family and Black Maskâ€™s gang vie for control of Gotham City, other players emerge to cause shenanigans and all manner of trouble.
One of the faithful Major Spoiler Legion sent me an email the other day, and I sat on it until someone else broke the story, because frankly, I don’t need another C&D.Â Tony Daniel posted on his blog (and then deleted) some sketches of his Batman and Robin designs. While the designs are nothing spectacular, the notes scribbled on the page are, as Daniel reveals who “wins” the Battle for the Cowl.Â The reveal isn’t much of a surprise to those who can put two and two together, but if you really want to know, take the jump to read
Woot!Â Woot?Â (chirp) Rev up your excitement meter, because the biggest Bat event of the season is here, as anyone and everyone is stepping up to fill the boots of the man that saved Gotham City more times than that other guy.Â Wow!Â This is going to be the bestest thing in the world, right?Â Yeah… about that…
The latest round of cover images and solicitation information for DC titles arriving in March 2009 is here.Â What looks good?Â The Legion of 3 Worlds reaches its conclusion, which should rock, Battle for the Cowl begins, Azrael returns, and the next mini neon sign arrives.Â And there are two hot statues too!
