All-New Batman: The Brave & The Bold #9
DC Comics (September 2011)WRITER: Sholly Fisch PENCILER: Rick Burchett INKER: Dan Davis COLORIST: Guy Major LETTERER: Dezi Sienty ASSISTANT EDITOR: Chynna Clugston Flores EDITOR: Jim Chadwick COVER COLORIST: Eltaeb
Batman and Hawkman escort a criminal named Byth to Thanagar, when his men decide to blow all three of them out of space. Hawkman tackles them in space while Byth breaks out of his cell and attacks Batman, and this time the Atom isn’t there to help stop him.
What they got right: Even better than the various fights Batman and Hawkman deal with, separately and together, are the quick moments with Hawkgirl. Especially the final scene.
What they got wrong: This is not counting the fact that the eye holes in the mask makes her look more cartoony than the regular characters. Also, did they have to go with the reincarnation origin for Hawkman? Because I would like to know how the curse caused him to be resurrected on another planet.
Recommendation: A good enough story to at least take a look through.
