With Earth 2’s United Kingdom falling under the rule of one of Apokolips’s invaders, Hawkgirl and Doctor Fate race to London. But with Nabu in control, Fate’s motives might not be as pure as they seem.

Now while the prospect of having a Doctor Fate and Hawkgirl heavy issue tickles me to the point of almost being obscene, these preview pages on the other hand show everything but what this solicit promises.  I personally love Hawkgirl and Fate and would love to see a book featuring them more and when I see that a quarter of the book is already dedicated to every other character, I start to get worried.  I understand that solicits for the most part are bullshit, but man did I get happy reading that and then immediately had that happiness dashed by not seeing a single panel featuring these two.  Now don't get me wrong, these pages look awesome and it's insane to think that this book would just leave us on the cliffhanger that this week's issue ended on and not follow up on it the next issue.  Mostly I think I'm in this book to see Flash, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl and Doctor Fate shine and those are the characters being left behind it seems.  Still excited, but we'll see what next week's issue brings.
