Legendary scribe PAUL LEVITZ (LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES, JSA) and acclaimed illustrator SONNY LIEW (MY FAITH IN FRANKIE) introduce the DC Universe to an entirely new incarnation of Doctor Fate! In modern-day Brooklyn, Anubis, the Egyptian god of the dead, has called up a great flood in order to cleanse the world. If left unchecked, his magic has the power to wash all of humanity away. To turn the rising tide and save mankind, Nabu the Wise, the mystical helmet of Fate, must choose a new champion from among Earth's greatest heroes-instead, he settles on Khalid "Kent" Nassour, Egyptian-American first-year med student. Unfortunately for the inexperienced and overwhelmed Khalid, instructions for his new abilities can't be found in any of his textbooks. Unless he can learn to harness the ancient power of Nabu, Anubis will claim everything the new Doctor Fate holds dear, including his family, his girlfriend and the world as he knows it. Yes, the Doctor is in way over his head. Also features DC SNEAK PEEK: DOCTOR FATE #1.
