We got an interesting article by Ashley Land of CBR. Here she has put together a list of comics that gave fans what they wanted, and it's a great list. Of course, Hawkman is in there! It's the usual light reading and doesn't go real deep, but it's good to see the Hawkman series recognized. And it truly did satisfy a lot of Hawkfans! Check out the article here.

Hawkgirl #1 by Jadzia Axelrod and Amancay Nahuelpan has been released and the reviews are coming in! ComicBook Round Up is a site that collects reviews from critics and site users. Currently, the critics have given the book a rating of 7.9, but the users' rating is at 2.9. Personally, I gave it a 7/10. You can check out all the reviews here!

The new Hawkgirl series has finally begun and it's a whole new Hawkgirl/Kendra Saunders. Kendra has gone through many changes over the years like any other character; the reluctant hero trying to find her own destiny, the confident former Lady Blackhawk who became an important and powerful member of the Justice League, and now a mature hero is trying to find her own place again after the end of the Justice League.
Who is this Hawkgirl? Let's start from there. When Shiera Saunders-Hall died, her soul was reincarnated into two beings; Shayera Hol, also known as Hawkwoman, and Kendra Saunders, the current Hawkgirl. Let's take a quick look at Kendra to understand where she is coming from.

According to Jadzia Axelrod, the writer for the New Hawkgirl series, the 6-issue series will be the greatest comic run of all time. That's a bold statement, but we'll find out soon enough. I'm still blocked from her Twitter account (No idea why. I've never talked to her or about her) but this tweet was posted on the Screen Rant article.

CBR lists 10 comics that deserve a sequel, and the Hawkman series by Robert Venditti is right in there. The series started out really great, but got derailed a bit by the ridiculous Year-of-the-Villain event in 2019-20. Venditti still was able to keep it going by bringing in Hawkwoman, Atom, and Adam Strange. The last six issues are just as good as the first 13. Vendiiti provided Hawkman and Hawkwoman with a huge setup that could have gone on for years, but DC prematurely ended it in November 2020. It's been almost three years since Hawkman has had his own title now. Hawkgirl (Kendra Saunders) will be getting her own title this month, so let's hope a Hawkman and Hawkwoman series is not far behind. As Venditti said in an interview, he left the toy box full, so let's hope a writer will take advantage of what Veditti left behind. Check out the article to see the other titles that need a sequel!

Personally, I think it may be a long time and take a new generation to bring back DC. It feels like DC has blown up the bridge with the current generations.

CBR put out a list of "Best DC Superhero Friends" and a friendship that always makes these lists is Hawkman and Atom. These two have been close pals since 1963, when they first met in Atom #7. I wrote an article about the history of their friendship and why the two of them are so close. I hope this friendship will get some spotlight someday. CW's Legend of Tomorrow completely whiffed on that one.

Finally finished getting my Hawkman collection back up. Still have some stuff to get up, but I'll figure out where to put it some day. It's a joy to see this when I get up in the morning and when I come back home after a long day at work. A collection 46 year in the making and I'm not done yet!

Most of the "critics" and some spoiled produce site has bashed the movie since it came out in October 2022. But for many DC Comics fans, the movie did have some positive things that promised a lot that hopefully Warner Bros will deliver one day. The movie did have its problems, of course. It wasn't the perfect superhero movie, not by a long shot. But some fans remain upbeat about it. I gathered some comments together from the members and followers of Hawkworld on Facebook and Twitter. If you haven't seen the movie yet, maybe some positive views about the movie will encourage you to go see it. Personally, Black Adam gave us our first live active movie version of Hawkman, so it will always have a special place.
Fan Comments are below! Post your positive comment and I'll add it!

One of the most enjoyable things about being a comic book fan is collecting things of your favorite characters. I've seen some absolutely amazing collections that fans have shared on social media over the years. And one of the joys of being a Hawkman fan is slowly adding to my own collection of Hawkman and Hawkgirl comics, figures, and other things. Until earlier this year, I had my collection all set up, but my kids are getting bigger, and we need the space, so I gave my room for one of my kids and took most of my collection, and stored them in boxes. I figured I'll get to put it up again someday. In the meantime, I'll keep adding one piece at a time to my collection.

In 2017, when the Metal series was happening, Dan Greenfield of the 13th Dimension website asked me to write a list of 13 things that many comic book readers may not know about Hawkman. If you soar into Hawkman's history, you will be surprised what a diverse and interesting character he is. There is certainly no lack of information for this list, and it was hard to limit myself to only 13 things.
Click the link and see how many you know about Hawkman.
Here is a quick introduction to all the members of the Hawkman Family that we have seen over the years. In the Hawks' long history, many characters have been added to their family.

|House Ad for Hawkman Vol. V (June 2018)|
Time flies as fast as Hawkman! The first issue of Hawkman Vol. V by Robert Venditti was released on June 13, 2018, 5 years ago today! The most recent Hawkman series continued for 29 issues, ending on November 10, 2020. In the series, it gave us a new origin for Hawkman, introduced us to numerous former lives of Hawkman, such as Catar-Ol of Krypton and Katarthul of Rann, and brought Hawkman and Hawkwoman truly back together for the first time since the Brightest Days series in 2010. The art by Bryan Hitch, Pat Olliffe, Fernando Pasarin and others made it one of the best Hawkman series ever. Since it's conclusion, it has often popped up on comic book reviewers' lists of the best series in recent DC Comics history.

"Confusing" is pretty much synonymous with Hawkman. If you read an article about Hawkman, confusing is usually in the very first sentence. As a Hawkman fan, it gets monotonous and boring to continue to see it, but for the comic book fan who hasn't really read much Hawkman or gone into his history, I suppose it can't be helped.
CBR gave us a whole article about confusing characters, and of course, Hawkman is in there. I found myself actually pleased that Hawkman wasn't listed at No. 1, although I sometimes get the impression the CBR rankings are done randomly or by popularity.
The article mentions Robert Venditti's origin, which I would recommend everyone read, which brings a great center to bring Hawkman's history together. The rest of the article was also light reading but a lot of fun to read/ Check it out! LINK
