    Folks! We are two issues in. Calm! Down!

    I know this is old school of me in the give-me-the-fan-what-you-should-have-guessed-what-I-wanted era, but let's at least give the crew four more issues to see what it is we got here.

    Is the "Carter Hall" we have based on the original Golden Age/JSA member of the past, or is he more of the post-Zero Hour "CARTER THE BARBARIAN" that seemed to be in the few Geoff Johns stories I read? (More savage than intellectual.)
    He seems much more thoughtful than the Geoff Johns version, thankfully. I like this Carter Hall quite a bit so far.
    "Why do the trunks not "hold up with the times"? What exactly is the problem with them? And don't tell me "nobody wears them" because nobody dresses in a blue body suit and red cape and boots either.

    It's a superhero costume. It's the original superhero costume. It's not real clothing, it's not bound to the ever-changing fashion trends of real life. It's nothing like real life clothing. How exactly can it become outdated?"

    Well, that's good to know.
    I'm trade-waiting this because I'm not sure I trust Venditti/DC about this "direction".
    (Also, when I glanced through issue #1 at the store, I wasn't overly impressed by Hitch's art. It was "okay", and not terribly polarizing/off-putting, but really more mediocre than I expected.)

    Yeah this is definitely not the Savage Hawkman we’ve seen in the modern age. This Carter, while trouble about his mysterious past, seems much more calm and scholarly. Maybe like Orion, there’s a savage side that creeps up in the heat of battle.

    "Savage Hawkman" was the New52 version of Katar Hol, wasn't it?
    (And, again, if he just recently died, how can Carter be "reincarnated" again already?)

    He's Carter Hall, but finds out about his life as Katar about halfway through. Thanks to... Rob Liefeld.

    Because it is revealed that he reincarnate through time and space. So temporal or local or temporal and local reincarnations, I guess. While Carter's incarnation was trapped in the Dark Multiverse, his Katar incarnation still went going and then died.

    She is. It's Kendra, not Shay, but I'll take it.

    My personal favorite Hawkgirls are from the JLU cartoons and the Hawkworld series, but Kendra's okay too. And so far I like what they're doing with this approach for Kendra, who remembers more of her past lives than the last version did and generally seems more useful.

    I kind of liked Carter Hall and kind of liked Katar Hol and have really liked them smooshed together as one character that takes what's best about Hawkman.

    That said, Hawkgirl is cooler

    I think Vendetti is off to a good start and Hitch seems like he's got something to prove here. I am enjoying the ride so far.

    I felt like I was watching an Indiana Jones movie while reading it. So cool.

    Lol. I read the first issue on your recommendation and it was pretty good. I gotta read the other issues now.
