I really like this book. I was a big fan of the original JSA, right up to the team split a couple of years ago. I've been buying the series digitally since the beginning and it is one of very few books that I buy pre "month-old" discount (well, at least among books without regular Canadian content).
Dodds' appearance is very, very brief. But the fact that he is Canadian is quite clear. I wondered if he would be treated like Booster Gold in Justice League International; said to be Canadian but never confirmed in-story.
Nope. Dodds is only in a handful of panels, but his nationality is confirmed.
Here is a portion of page one.
To everyone who liked E2 #5 and who asked -- the recruitment of Sanderson Hawkins will be a big plot point to come.For those unfamiliar with the the original character(s), Sanderson was Sandman's sidekick so presumably Dodds will be involved heavily in that storyline. However, the solicitations for #6 and #7 don't mention Sandman (or the Sandmen) so it may be a while still.
