The first has me grinning, as I love the character, I love that it's going to have a 1930s setting, and to me Garth Ennis' best work is when he's doing crime or war stories, so to me this series is going to rock so hard! Here's one of several covers that the series is getting,

Also he's going to be going back to Punisher Max, which is also good, though personally I was actually enjoying Jason Aaron's run so far.

Oh, and here's an interview and two covers from two of the series' that Liefeld is taking over, and they have me grinning for entirely different reasons...

Sorry Rob, I know that somehow your books might turn out to be good... but even if DC wasn't putting out books with both very good writing and art (shout out to the Shade and Batwoman amongst others), your covers alone manage to get me giggling.

But then, the theme song for the cheesy yet enjoyable Adam Baldwin Shadow is also hilarious, so I probably just have a weird sense of humour,

That series was both an interesting take on the character and crazy misogynistic.

Oh God, I remember that theme song from "The Shadow"; it goes so over-the-top that it somehow manages to be terrible and wonderful at the same time. Much like the movie, in many ways.

(Pedantic correction, however; it was actually Alec Baldwin who was the Shadow, not Adam. Easy mistake to make given how many of them there are, though.)

Hawkman looks like Hawk and the level of my shock is a 1 on a scale of 1 to 1,000...

The fact that Lobo in joining Deathstroke is still giving me nightmares...

AH THE SHADOW!!! I have fondness for that movie and that hilariously cheesy ending theme. I think that film was probably my first real geek experience.

That said --- I'm definitely going to have to keep an eye out for that Shadow comic.

So what DC is saying, is that they're going to cancel Hawkman and Deathstroke next.

No big loss.

Then they can move him on to 'World's Finest' and 'Superman'!

... For the first time, I'm a little bit glad that they killed off Kendra Saunders. Better than being subjected to Liefeld art.

Take another look at the page you linked to. Ennis isn't going back to Punisher MAX; they're just speculating that his Shadow will be similar in tone and quality. I hope that it's at least better than The Boys, Crossed and Jennifer Blood.

The only time I've been exposed to The Shadow is via the movie starring Alec Baldwin, sooo any recommendations?

I've just posted a story from "The Shadow Strikes!" a DC series published in the early 90s but not very 90sish.

On a broader scale, you can get podcasts of old Shadow radio show episodes various places on the internet.

If you want to go hardcore, the pulp novels are being reprinted two to a volume and are good value for money.

From: [personal profile] pyrotwilight that Hawkman cover supposed to be Hawkman, or some extreme(!!!) enemy Hawkman has to fight? I legitimately can't tell.

That's Hawkman.

This is the current costume, so if anything he's become sleeker and less extreme.

IMO, the two pics are pretty good by Liefeld standards.

Love what you did there, Rob.
I couldn't imagine it was possible to turn these already 90's-ysh designer 90's-ysh-er.

Well Leifeld has improved over the last twenty years. His art is still awful but it's not physically painful to look at anymore.

This might sound ridiculous but has Liefeld actually streamlined New 52 Deathstroke's costume?

Of course....

Kind of funny how much Deathstrokes costume looks like that Bloodstrike (seriously?) design.
