Hawkman #1

Hawkman #1 comic reviewHawkman has a long and convoluted comic history. The new series from writer Robert Venditti and artist Bryan Hitch hopes to add to the character’s history while making some sense out of the reincarnated warrior who has been everything from an Egyptian prince to a space cop from Thanagar. The best attempt to merge and make sense of the character’s colorful backstory was in JSA more than 10 years ago, but attempts to make the character a mainstay in the DCU since then have had mixed success before fizzling out.

Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider #19

Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider #19 comic reviewWhile Kaine attempts to keep everyone in the hotel and casino, who have been transported to an alternate dimension by Mysteria, safe from the murderous creatures, our other Scarlet Spider confronts Mysterio and his daughter to discover what the hell is going on.

It turns out Mysteria needed the hotel to vanish in order to get to a hidden temple beneath its foundations. Planning to murder her father and claim a demon’s power as her own, things don’t exactly go as planned for Mysteria (although Mysterio does get to play the role of a menacing Spidey villain for a few panels). With Mysterio’s defeat, things appear to be wrapped up a bit neatly… although it looks like his not-so-dead daughter may not be quite done yet.

The Immortal Hulk #1 comic reviewThe Hulk is dead. Long live the Hulk? Killed off as part of Marvel’s lackluster Civil War II event, the Hulk returns to Marvel in a new series from writer Al Ewing and artist Joe Bennett. Focusing on neither Bruce Banner or the Hulk (or any character that will survive long enough to appear in issue #2), the first issue centers around a gas station robbery and triple homicide. When one of the victims’ bodies goes missing from the morgue through a rather huge hole in the wall to take out vengeance on the man responsible the world gets their wake-up call that the Hulk is back.
