    I have the issue, but haven't been able to read it...yet.

    but I will say I really like the black and gold over the old blue and gold. I also like the "constellation" like patters on the black part of the costume.

Hi! Thank-you for the kind words. O\:\-\) Fate's new look is a bit too much I think, too busy, but I shall reserve proper judgement till next issue when it's seen in action. In principle I do like the idea of the extra armour as it complements the helmet, I'd never considered this before but Fate does look like a knight, a shining knight...
As I said in last months review I think Robinson made aan error in making Khalid Kent Nelson by another name, he has the exact same origin as Nelson and the exact same 'curse' with the Helmet and Nabu. I think it smothers him, when you look back on Doctor Fate and Nabu his host has always tended to be a depressive, a perpetually miserable victim caught in an abusive relationship. I think that's why Hector Hall worked for me as he was the opposite to that - he nominally liked being Doctor Fate and he fought and rejected Nabu's overbearing prescence all the way near enough. In short Hector was his own man. And I hope Khalid follows suit, otherwise this is just the same old boring Doctor Fate/Kent Nelson, an eternal victim who appeals to no one...
