Doctor Fate Vol. 2: Prisoners of the Past
Gifted with the power of Nabu, armed with the Helmet of Fate, Egyptian-American medical student Khalid Nassour is getting a crash course in the ways of the world beyond. Unfortunately, our world’s a big enough mess as it is.
As Khalid struggles to reconcile everything he thought he knew about life and faith with the angels, demons, gods and monsters facing him at every turn, the people of his ancestral homeland face monsters of their own. So when protests against the police state turn violent outside the Egyptian consulate in New York, it’s Khalid’s fate to investigate.
What he discovers is a dictatorship much older—and potentially deadlier—than the one the protesters face. The spirit of none other than Julius Caesar himself has risen again, and he’s determined to finish what he started and conquer Egypt for good.
Stopping Caesar will take everything the new Doctor Fate knows about space and time, magic and history. And it may bring a former Fate out of retirement in the bargain...
Comics legend Paul Levitz (LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES, JSA) and acclaimed artist Sonny Liew (THE SHADOW HERO, THE ART OF CHARLIE CHAN HOCK CHYE) continue their rollicking reimagining of DC’s premiere superhero sorcerer in DOCTOR FATE VOL. 2: PRISONERS OF THE PAST!
