    This issue starts off well enough with a couple of interesting subplots back in St. Roch, and it end with an exciting cliffhanger finish, but the middle section of the issue made for pretty average reading. Now I will credit the art for delivering a visually exciting display as the Hawks battle a sizable army of crazed Yetis, and the avalanche is an impressive moment. However, the simple fact of the matter is that this mystery doesn't really get going until the final pages, and I have to say that when Hawkman starts prattling on about the history of the Yetis race, I found myself rapidly losing interest. I mean here's a golden opportunity to have some fun with the idea that the Hawks are on an adventure that involves Yetis, and Geoff Johns manages to make it as exciting as a history lesson. There's also the simple fact that while it's visually impressive, the battle with the Yetis lacked any real purpose beyond killing pages until the cliffhanger finish could make its arrival.

    Rags Morales emphasizes the comedy by not accenting any humorous elements. He plays it straight as if this wasn't the comic book equivalent of When Monkeys Attack! When the characters stop during the hunt to explore their feelings, Mr. Morales uncannily expresses their emotions with undeniable subtle flair. The problem is that these soliloquies take place in an unsubtle story about yeti. I just can't get over this issue. How could anybody with half a brain green light this story? Read Full Review
