Notes From Wednesday’s Books

In The Flash #6 with art and story by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato, Iris, Barry (The Flash), and Patty sit down to eat at a restaurant called Captain Jay’s. I’m guessing this is a nod to Jay Garrick the original Flash. WIth the new Earth Two book on the horizon it made me wonder if the first official meeting between Earth 2 and the main DC Universe will be in a Flash Book. The Flashes first met in The Flash (vol. 1) #123. And by the way if you are not reading The Flash you are missing out on one of the best super-hero books on the market.

In The Savage Hawkman #6 written by Tony S. Daniel and drawn by Philip Tan, Hawkman ends up on Long Island. There are no mountains on Long Island. With DC being headquartered in Manhattan I would have thought that an editor would have caught that this looks nothing like Long Island. If the creative team is not going to embrace the “real world” setting they put Hawkman in, why move him out of St. Roch? If the location read, “Outskirts of St. Roch” it would have not taken me out of the story.
