While Deadman continues his search for White Lanterns bearers, Hawkman and Hawkgirl continue to search for Hath Seth the man who kills them in every lifetime. The Atom continues to investigate how to separate the Firestorm matrix and its two bearers. J’onn J’onzz continues to explore Dr. Erdel’s life after receiving a psychic memory flash earlier. But who wants to kill him?
I really like this series. DC Comics has made more that were weekly or semi bi-weekly. I understand that DC Comics is also trying to revive its cast of second tier characters with this series and I would argue they are doing a fine job. Many readers like Aquaman, Martian Manhunter and the Atom, but they get few opportunities to see them shine. This series is the one to feature them well.
This issue features a continuing intrigues involving all of the newly resuscitated characters, but with a tie in with Deadman at the center. There are a few revelations, but nothing huge. I prefer the bi-weekly pace of the series to a weekly too. It’s easier to read and absorb. This series is practically a Justice League series featuring all the second stringers and a great creative team. I’d recommend it to anyone who just want to read a solid super hero series set in the DC Comics universe.
While many artists work on the series, they work on sections involving specific characters, so everything meshes properly. It’s amazing that multiple artist series like this one looks so good. Often, newcomers are assigned to such series instead of solid artists. I’m liking everything of course.
