Next week, return to old Thanagar with The Savage Hawkman #0. How did a once proud alien civilization, renowned as a pillar of innovation, devolve into endless war? What was Katar Hol’s involvement with that cosmic conflict? How did Hawkman fall to Earth?
This issue represents one of Rob Liefeld’s final contributions to Hawkman or the New 52. Though he is still listed as plotter for several future issues, the writer/artist claimed last month that the zero issues would be his last installments at DC. Liefeld is credited as scripting this issue with Mark Poulton, who will eventually pass the torch to Fabian Nicieza by January’s #15. Coincidentally, that same issue includes a guest spot for Deathstroke, another of Liefeld’s former projects.
Hopefully, Hawkman can shake off the creative team shuffling without too many feathers ruffled.
