Doctor Fate Rumor Mill, Who Will be Designing the New Dr. Fate?

This is a totally unconfirmed rumor, but an artist may have dropped a hint last Friday on twitter that he may be working on the new Dr. Fate redesign for his upcoming appearance in the Earth 2 comics.  The artist is none other that Brett Booth (@demonpuppy on twitter)!  If you are unfamiliar with his work, his most current art can be seen on the pages of DC's Teen Titans and he was the one that did this fantastic redesign of the Golden Age Atom for his return to the pages of DC comics:

What were the hints he dropped you may ask?  Well in a conversation with other DC fans his name was brought up as a potential artist to redesign Doc Fate, to which he responded with a joking tweet stating "I'm not familiar with that character..." I say joking because in other interactions I and other DC fans have had with Mr. Booth, he is quite aware of Dr. Fate and is in fact a fan of the character.  The second hint was dropped when another fan questioned him about not knowing Doctor Fate to which Mr. Booth again answered with a joking tweet imitating an evil laugh.  Now these may or may not be hints, and I may be making something out of nothing, but if indeed Mr. Booth is the artist in charge of the Dr. Fate redesign I could not be any happier.  Let's cross our fingers and hope that Mr. Booth was indeed hinting at what I and others thought he may be hinting at.
