Last year, just before DC were set to release Marc Andreyko and Aaron Lopresti's Hawkman and Adam Strange: Out of Time, the publisher announced the series had a new, more foreboding title: Death of Hawkman. While downplaying Adam Strange's co-starring role in the miniseries, it promised the final fate of DC's most confusing continuity conundrum. The final issue came out this week, and now we have a definitive answer to the question; "Will DC actually kill off a character in a miniseries named after their death?"

Note: Spoilers for Death of Hawkman #6 follow!

DC Announces ‘Hawkman/Adam Strange: Out Of Time’ from Andreyko & Lopresti

Hawkman/Adam Strange: Out Of Time

As far as DC's space-faring heroes go, Hawkman and Adam Strange have had a bit of a rocky relationship over the years. Despite both being nominally good guys and occasional Justice Leaguers, their major interaction in the past has resulted from Thanagar and Rann, their respective planets, going to war with each other --- presumably over the fact that Rann's capital is called "Ranagar," and that's way too confusing.

Now, though, there's something new on the horizon. Today, DC announced Hawkman/Adam Strange: Out Of Time, a new series set to kick off in October from writer Marc Andreyko and artist Aaron Lopresti, where the two heroes team up --- and this time, it's to stop an interplanetary war form breaking out.

What Exactly Was The Deal With Xorn Anyway? [Mutant Week]

Xorn-Featured

We’ve been celebrating Mutant Week all week here at ComicsAlliance, and it’s fair to say that everyone has had a lot of fun. However, now it’s time to get serious and talk about the stuff that really matters, that being: What the heck is Xorn’s deal?!

If you’re unaware, Xorn was a character with a cool design and a cool hook, introduced by Grant Morrison and Leinil Francis Yu in New X-Men Annual way back in 2001. He had a star for a face, he was a healer, and he taught the remedial class at Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters. Then, Grant Morrison pulled the rug out from under us with a reveal so drastic that Marvel spent years trying to to undo it in a satisfying way.

The New 52: Future's End

Though weekly series were recently a major part of DC Comics' plans, the publisher took a few years off from them to focus on its New 52 initiative.

So There’s An Attempted Gang-Rape In The First Issue of ‘Amethyst’

amethyst01-1348105430

If you'd asked me two days ago if I was excited about Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld's return in the pages of Sword of Sorcery #0, the answer would've been a resounding yes. It seemed like a huge step in the right direction: A comic that dabbled in something outside the standard superhero genre, attempting to appeal to a wider audience of fantasy fans and women and girls with a cover that boasted a really nice updated redesign, and it was scripted by Jem creator and veteran comic writer Christy Marx...
