THE BOOK OF FATE - Another Casualty

DC’s late ‘90s revamp of Dr. Fate didn’t last very long, but I doubt the internet will ever let DC forget about it. In case you didn’t know, this was the series that re-imagined Dr. Fate as Gambit. Or perhaps Grifter. Or Ravage 2099. So, yes, it’s an easy target for ridicule, but my main interest in picking up this series is the creative team. I tend to enjoy Keith Giffen as a writer, and as for Ron Wagner…he’s the man who brought us this and this. I will always be a Ron Wagner fan.

So, 1997’s The Book of Fate #1, coming soon.

I'm interested in this for a couple reasons. I'm a big Keith Giffen fan (LOVED his Doom Patrol series from last year), and I'm curious what he did with the concept. Let's see if he can elevate it above that tragically dated design.
