Unfortunately Hawkman, Hawkgirl and the surprise guest-star are still stuck in this stupid, stupid plot involving the reincarnation of Hath-Set controlling the Yeti. Credit must be given to Mr. Johns for seriously limiting the Yeti action, but Hath-Set and her flunky come off as rather sleazy versions of Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale. The reader will not believe for one second the Hawks were in any danger from this screwloose duet, and when the reader happens upon the climactic plot twist, no force on earth will be able to stop her from breaking into a fit of giggles.

I'll give this issue credit for delivering a strong appearance by its guest-hero, and Rags Morales does his usual standup job on the art. However, this issue's failure to address the cliffhanger elements that it left us with at the end of last month's issue, and the outright bizarre turn of events that it offers up at the end of this month's chapter, left me unimpressed. I mean this is a book that seems to be the very definition of aimless when it comes to its stories, as it seems perfectly willing to inject elements that make very little sense, and deliver action sequence that reach abrupt endings thanks to some outright screwy plot contrivances. Now perhaps Geoff Johns has put a great deal of effort into researching this book, and these plot elements draw their inspirations from the real world mythology, but honestly I find this book's reliance on strange plot contrivances to be rather off-putting. I mean the last page of this issue is absolutely laughable. Read Full Review
