If you're a Hawkman fan, do yourself a favour and go read the review for Hawkman No. 1 by Ritesh Babu of the AiPT site. If this review doesn't get you excited about the direction that Venditti and Hitch are taking Hawkman, then I doubt anything will.
This is where the additive approach of Venditti and Hitch really roars with its might. What they’ve brought to Hawkman is an ability unlike anything or anyone else.

It literalizes all his greatest strengths and perfectly captures everything he is and represents in his powerset.
