You thought global warming was bad? Anubis, the Egyptian Lord of Dead, is preparing the flood to wash the world away. Standing in his way? An overwhelmed Brooklyn med student who's been handed the helmet of Fate, without an instruction manual.


Hello guys welcome back to Cabo, cafe, basically just to show about me talking about comic books because I love to talk about him- and you know, like you know, like you know this one which will begin a review in the future, not always new cat books, I like to review old ones to a lot in my collection anyway, but today we're going to talk about a brand new cod book and as dr.

faith, vol 4 issue number one now, dr.

fate started originally started: premiered May, nineteen, forty in more than fun comics issue 55, for it was even DC Comics.

He premiered he's been around for a very long time to be honest, growing up, I really didn't read or care about dr.

fate when it came to DC Comics, my big ones, work or Superman Batman, Green, Lantern Hawkman.

Those are the characters I were drawn to reading, especially in 90s and early 2000s, but when it came to baton dr.

fate, he looked alright, but I just didn't have no appeal.

It was funny back then.

For me, it was reading comic books based on the cover.

You know if that looks really cool, then I, give it a shot, something about I, don't look, really cool to give a shot, or maybe a favorite bill, and our character was in it.

But if I I, just didn't you know, look then seem interested, then I'd never did anyway.

So I thought this would be a good jumping point in now in order for you, starting to scrapbook, there's actually kind of like a setup to this cowboy guy, DC comics com, that's for the actual like because this comp of starts already in stride.

What I mean is this is a reboot of the character but like how he got to the point.

Where is in the museum? You have to actually read at DC DC comics com.

So basically, this book was written by Paul Paul, let's bits and the artist was a sunny.

Is it live li e w as his last name anyway, so this was a rather interesting book.

So, first of all, you start off the book with a dog the only dog talking dog who's, an evil talking dog.

You know, based on how you know it's already starting, and you know conserve me any slaves and that's basically get out of like the one page thing with him is that's all I get out of the character, and then you move over to the museum.

Where you know our main character was it.

Khalid is already at and he's talking to a cat, and so, if you hadn't read these two comics online thing preview re before that sets us up.

You know you don't know.

What's going on talking to a cat, the cat, zombies Egyptian he's like the almond American, it's just a med student, but cat wants to put the helmet on he's like no I'm, not you know the guy, then kids kind of things he's itself's delusional and he leaves the building right text is a girl, some girl and the girl.

You know a friend, obviously a friend or maybe it's a love interest.

Don't know at this point really he texts her.

You know, oh, you know, cuz he's like how kinase museum thing and I think she kind of go okay kind of thing.

You know what okay and then you know right after that ends with her.

He ends up his momentum again on the phone in my ammad as a mother are talking, you know it seems she's just worried he's out there.

You know you find out for the mother after the hang up that you know his mother at him and his father out there and she's obviously worried about him and that's all you get out of her character.

You know that she's worried about him on that she brings a cat.

The cat, the same cat was like in a friend from the outside is really dried.

She doesn't understand why and then we cut back.

We cut to what is his father driving a cab and a customer wants to be there in a hurry.

You know, and he makes account how he's never seen it rain like this before and they leave it at that.

It's a little just like I, like a small trip to the character, because they'll be more important later to the story.


The whole point of the cat tells, of course, our character that the reason why he needs to become fate is because you know uh the UM Anubis, the was it the board of the Dead Gyptian lure the Dead is going to flood the world and wash it and cleanse it to remodel, I guess the way he wants to do it, which we kind of wash away humanity or whatever, and that he needs to come fate and he needs you know they need him to do this.

You also get from the can't have a kind of conversations with somebody else which I'm assuming it's a Monroe who's supposed to be.

The guy who can kind of who might be able to fix.

You know, come down, save everybody.

The names of these.

These bad guys can sound like stuff from a Stargate TV series.

The way their names are, but they're Egyptian and saw what kind of fits I mean fate looks like for me, he's always look kind of like Egyptian.

Like way you look at him so and I'm not surprising this office together, so I'm usually account book.

They have dogs and cats.

Talking right anyway, really good pass the stories, I'm a butler on too long, so he are made after the character talks to you know his mom.

He he's in the subway and raid again a training, obviously to go home or whatever and he's seeing their subway just in there and there's this little kid on the tracks, don't attract the subway and as it would happen, nobody people are looking, but no one seems to care this kids I, don't know why people don't care, but no one's needs to carry the kids I'm tracks, or maybe they don't want to get out there and get the kid and he tells the mother I'll go get the kid and he goes down.

There gets to get out of there after gets good either.

Of course, subway comes and after gets out of here, and so listen so he's gonna hit him and he says something and UCL lightning.

He gets and he stops the train.

He doesn't know what happened.

He's kind of freaked out, but everybody around him didn't know what happened.

They just thought.

The train stopped so like hey, are you all right? Can you see doctor he's like? No? No, no, no I'm, fine, I'm fine today like well, you need a ride.

No! No! No! You know he's everything.

That's happened, I just freaking him out.

He doesn't know what to do and then basically just to wrap up the book at the story of the book.

He just simply.


The cat sees him again.

He goes back to museum with the cat.

You know the cats that makes it kind about how I'm gonna pay the price for a gift.

You know wishing this to you and you're gonna pay a price for wearing it.

He puts the helmet on, you know sees all kinds of stuff and a cat psych me know because doing this I'm, you know he's gonna his.

He calls himself Bastet, bas, te t the Canada's, but our character cause a puck so not sure what his real name is, but the cat basically I'll be verbal I'm gonna die, so I could be wrong again.

So the cat dead, talking cats dead and he's running.

How many sees an older version of himself and I was like saying you know, you know, college you no longer more you're, not just a mortal anymore and if you know he's flying, he feels like the winds moving him hands.

On top of this really tall really major toll bridge.

Of course he takes the helm enough, he's like how am I gonna get down he's freaked out.

Of course you know, don't know what to make any of this, and then we, just simply in the book, was fathers in the cab.

Still a bunch of dogs are barking at the cab off sun and industry hits the cab and the guy in the back is out saying you should go back to Egypt or you should never left to Egypt and that's how it ends.

So you don't know if the guy in the taxi I was like part of this, or he just took jerk, because he seemed like a jerk in the cab just being a jerk saying that to him, isn't he sees his dissent in him, I guess? But overall it was an alright.

It was a good setup starting point.

It wasn't like was I blown away by it now did I like you, don't really see faith so him as fait CE.

Really like don't care about fate, you only care about the character himself right now and obviously setting up his ol balance of life, and this new thing he's gotten like how was it all going to play out? Obviously they're setting up characters the girl, a text is failing and how's that gonna play with.

You know the faith thing and you know it but very little detail in this book.

It was just like just enough to get to know what's going on him in his little world, and that was it.

No rot was good for that point, I mean if you're expecting a lot of action or your respect.

You know him to be fate right away.

This is not that book, most, never ones usually aren't unless they're in you know, in this case this good setup you'll enjoy it.

If you like fate, you'll you'll, probably like this book, seeing how it told you the story of you, know again Khaled becoming fate, but I'll continue.

Reading it didn't turn me out for not reading a book.

I would definitely continue to retain overall I think if you're looking for something different, it's definitely good.

This is a definitely a good book to jump on the starting point at most.

Definitely anyway, guys.
