Courtesy of DC Comics, here's an exclusive preview of next week's installment of The Savage Hawkman, a new series starring stalwart bird-fellow Carter Hall.

In this issue, Carter squares off against a shadowy foe named Morphicus, who's been awoken by an archaeological dig and has the hankering to drain Hawkman's life force. It's never easy being an avian-themed superhero.

When the alien creature known as Morphicius starts draining the life force from Carter Hall, a.k.a. Hawkman, he learns that there's more to his new victim than meets the eye. The mysterious properties of the Nth Metal protect Hawkman – but in the process, they are also making Morphicius powerful!

With innocent lives in the balance, can Hawkman turn the table on his enemy, or are Morphicius newfound powers too powerful to stop?
