Khalids quest for answers leads the young Doctor Fate to his ancestral homeland of Egypt, where he discovers that malevolent supernatural forces have conspired to make life a lot harder for humanity than it should be.
Doctor Fate is definitely in an intriguing position here with how Khalid's operating and I'm curious as to what the endgame with it or if it's just my interpretation of events as they're playing out. I really like Khalid and I can totally get his viewpoint and the why and how of what he's doing, but I can also see so much fallout from it. This issue has Sonny Liew returning on art duties and that means another installment where I just pore over the pages and adore the design, the camera placement for the panels, and the overall sense of layout. There are a number of interesting cutout sections for Fate this time around that are neat and I love the crosscut panels that we get to see both Fate and Khalid. It's a great book visually and a reminder of one of the strong books I've picked up in the last year in this department. Read Full Review
