I'm shocked this book lasted 18 issues. I'm happy it did, but I'm shocked DC didn't axe it earlier. I don't think it sold despite being a solid and fun book. It may have had something to do with Paul Levitz's arrangement with DC? I don't know.
Anyway, this is it. The end of this version of Doctor Fate. From the beginning, it felt like an indie book to me. The writing, the art, the content. It did not seem like anything else from DC. I applaud them for giving us something different. And I wasn't looking forward to yet another new take on another DC character. Shows what I know.
I enjoy the reappearance of the original Doctor Fate in this book. He's the current Fate's great uncle. He shows up to give advice and aid the younger Fate in his travels. What made me squeal with delight was a panel in which the elder Fate mentioned his time with the Justice Society. Which means Paul Levitz was planting seeds. Something he does well!!!!
I'll miss this book.
