Soaring his way from Dark Nights Metal & Hawkman Found, Carter Hall dives into his past and finds that a part of his origin will be the end him and the world’s he’s known.

The Archeologist historian Carter Hall searches the ruins of Ooahk Kung, the All-See for the Nautilus of Revealment. With this relic, he will be able to take a closer look into his past, the past that he questions. With the help from Xanadu’s magic, Carter uses the Nautilus and is overwhelmed with visions of his past and future reincarnations. Some of which he never knew existed, but with those visions, a warning of death and slaughter.

This issue was a fun action adventure. DC’s very own Indiana Jones with super strength. Robert Venditti is building an origin on a cosmic level for Carter Hall, and with Xanadu’s last words, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. Hitch’s art was overall good in this first issue, with some minor panels that looked a little plain. His bigger panels with the Nautilus Guardian and the visions were very enjoyable to look at.
