Dr. Fate #1 Preview

Written By: Paul Levitz
Art By: Sonny Liew
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: June 17, 2015


You thought global warming was bad? Anubis, the Egyptian Lord of Dead, is preparing the flood to wash the world away. Standing in his way? An overwhelmed Brooklyn med student who’s been handed the helmet of Fate, without an instruction manual.


I'm really on the fence with this book, which is weird to me because I love Dr. Fate, but if this title is the way that the Sneak Peek presented it, it's just another title that is simply talking down to a younger generation, hoping that kids will get on board with younger characters, cartoony art and bright colors.  Hopefully I'm wrong here because we've got enough of that going on lately and Dr. Fate is something that I really want to get completely on board for.  Hell, it happened with me changing my mind from the Sneak Peek to the first issue with Constantine: The Hellblazer, I really hope that's the case here.

    1. I know! It is starting to get really silly. Someone in the DC office is yelling, "put that stuff they do with their mobile phones...you know the typing thing" and everyone is obeying
