    Not the most exciting of reads, as the opening battle lacks any real sense of danger, However, the material back in St. Roch makes up for this rather uninspired opening pages, as the examination of another side of Hawkman's personality made for an engaging read, and the final couple pages of this issue deliver some pretty solid surprises. This issue also does some nice work showing us that Hawkman had been living his life knowing that there was an established pattern to how everything played out, as when this pattern is broken, one can see Hawkman's mood becomes considerably brighter, and the last page does a nice job of playing off this newfound relaxed state, as we see that Hath-Set's death wasn't exactly what it appeared to be. However, the weak opening half of this issue keeps me from recommending this issue to any one other than regular Hawkman readers, and since they have likely already picked up this issue, this recommendation is rather pointless.

    The finale is a big, wet raspberry toward the reader. After investing time and money in this lame-brained storyarc, the reader discovers it has all been for nothing. Rather than play by his own rules, Johns breaks them to create an eye-rolling cheat. Read Full Review
