According to a few news sites (including PWInsider), this is supposedly going to be a fiction book that cleans up the character's screwy and sometimes contradictory backstory. A "Crisis on Infinite Earths" for Kane I guess.
I usually wouldn't give something like this much notice, but considering I don't mind the comic bookish stuff, I like the character, and the book is under 10 bucks...I'll buy it.
