Strange but, I guess, making sense from a “At least it ties in more with Brightest Day” point of view, Rich Johnston points out that Zatanna’s place in the preview art for Brightest Day Aftermath: The Search for Swamp Thing seems to have been taken by Hawkman in the version that saw print in various DC titles today:
(Also changed: Superman’s eyes are now glowing, and Batman’s chest emblem has been fixed. Sadly, no-one has told Constantine that that’s not how you light cigarettes, yet.)
This potentially answers the question of where Hawkman’s story will continue following Brightest Day #24′s downbeat ending – Poor Sheira – unless it’s just a cameo capitalizing on his appearances in the series, but I hope that it doesn’t mean that Zatanna has been written out of the series; she’s one of the more established DCU characters to have a shared history with Constantine, and it would’ve been nice to see what (if anything) their current status was these days. That said, maybe Constantine can magic Hawkman’s wife back to corporeal form at some point during the new series…?
