    An issue that felt a little too padded for my liking, as I kept waiting for this story to get itself into gear, but the only new elements it brings to the table is a look at a harrowing encounter that Kendra had when she was a child, and Doctor Fate drops in to make Hawkman aware of a pattern that has been cropping up in all of Hawkman's previous lives. The thing is even this pattern seems to have some fuzzy logic to it, if Hawkgirl falls in love with Hawkman then the villain can kill them. This in turn begs the question of why this killer hasn't acted far sooner in the previous incarnations, as even looking at their previous life together, it would seem the Hawks were an item for at the very least the nine months it took for the new Doctor Fate to be conceived & brought into this world. Still, the simple fact of the matter is this issue doesn't offer up much in the way of new information, as one gets the sense the creative team is still busy showing off how they've untangled the mess Read Full Review
