Dark Days: The Forge No. 1 Review
by Kevin Lainez of Comic Book Revolution
"Though I’ve never been a big Hawkman fan it is intriguing to see how the Nth metal his weapons are built on factor into what Batman is doing. My hope is that Dark Days: Metal will finally give Hawkman a clear foundation to garner a bigger fan following. So far he, along with Hawkwoman, has been a character that has been held back by his confusing history. So Dark Days: Metal may be the opportunity to give a clear direction for the Hawk brand."
