Hey! I didn't know @SonnyLiew was drawing @DCcomics' new DR. FATE series!

I always loved DC's pseudo-Egyptian master mage Dr. Fate.  I also enjoy Sonny Liew's art. So I was pleasantly surprised to see Sonny's art on the Lord of Order's new Dr. Fate series, written by Paul Levitz!
Here's the sales pitch:

You thought global warming was bad? Anubis, the Egyptian Lord of Dead, is preparing the flood to wash the world away. Standing in his way? An overwhelmed Brooklyn med student who’s been handed the helmet of Fate, without an instruction manual.

Global warming IS bad... But I don't want beef with Anubis, and neither do you. This book looks to be chock full of good junk. If you disagree, there's a cat walking on water in this preview, so I win. I love it when comics plays around with religion, so I hope to see them go full retarded with the Egyptian stuff. Dr. Fate is probably not going to bring the Egyptian pantheon into the household name status that THOR has for Odin and company, but I will be satisfied if it inspires the book that does. Yeah, I like to dream big.
Anyways, I love Sonny Liew ever since I first caught his work on the Vertigo book My Faith in Frankie back around the turn of the century when everyone was on that end-of-the-world isht, so I think putting him on art duty is a slam dunk for the New 52 iteration Dr. Fate

So yeah... Dr. Fate #1, by Paul Levitz and Sonny Liew, is in stores now.

Samax Amen draws people, places and things for fun and profit. He is the artist of many great comics you never heard of like Herman Heed, Champion of Children, The Brother and The World As You Know It. He even writes and draws his own comics, like Dare: The Adventures of Darius Davidson, Spontaneous, and Manchild when he gets around to it. Because making comics is hard and stuff, he started GhettoManga as a blog in 2006 and as a print magazine in 2008.

Was a good first issue, some slightly stilted dialogue but great art. The cat was also great. Post-52 Fate though!

Yeah, I agree 100% with your review, Jamie!
This is the kinda thing that SHOULD be done with reboots.
