Im not all that surprised Doctor Fate is relatively unknown to comic fans and there were so many of them that people are probably used to him changing. Im no expert on him but i am really excited to see him come back.

Me too. But whatever, as long as this Khalid guy has a cool costume and a cool personality (we already went through a noobish Doctor Fate with Kent V.), I'm OK with this.

Khalid is a popular muslim name bec it is the name of one of the companions of the prophet of Islam. Since Dr Fate has ties to egypt, Khalid is probably an egyptian muslim.

@AllStarSuperman: Should I wait for the trades or can I figure it out as I go if I start with this Fate issue?

i dont think it will cost you to much to pick up the whole series (roughly $23.47 even less if you buy of ebay). If you pick up 7, 8, and then 9 you will be fine, but you will be missing out because the first arc is awesome.
