This review is full of spoilers, so if you haven't read it yet, then please come back after you do. Also, if you're a fan of the writer of this book, you might want to skip this as well. Sorry, gotta be honest. Anyway, let's take a look.

Finally. I've been waiting for someone to write this article, and CBR's Timothy Donohoo did it. The Justice League cartoon was popular, but it made an absolute mess of Hawkman. The show practically ripped everything good about him away to prop up their Hawkgirl-John Stewart romance. Thanks to this horrible version of Hawkman, many kids who grew up in the 2000s learned to love Hawkgirl but hate Hawkman. The only good thing this cartoon gave the Hawks was Hawkgirl's first costume, which is a classic look, but they even took that away and replaced it with a yellow jumpsuit. Let's hope the DCU stays far, far away from the DCAU version and bring the Hawks back together as they should be. Many thanks to Donohoo for writing this article.

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.

|Big Announcement from DCU James Gunn!|
There was big news in Hawkworld today: in a surprise announcement, we found out that Isabela Merced was cast as Hawkgirl for James Gunn's Superman Legacy. The Superman movie is scheduled to be released on July 11, 2025, which means we have a two-year wait before we see the first Hawkgirl to soar across the movie screen.
We have no details on what her role will be in the movie. Two other heroes were also announced with Hawkgirl: Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific and Nathan Fillion as GL Guy Gardner. This seems like a completely random, mishmash group of heroes who have all never been on the same team before, and how they come into Superman's story is anyone's guess. We'll have to wait for more details to come out as the release date gets closer. But James Gunn confirmed it himself on Instagram yesterday.

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.

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!

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.

Back in 2006, a new Hawkgirl series picked up where Hawkman Vol. 4 left off, starting at issue No. 50 and continuing for 17 issues. Walter Simonson wrote all 17 issues, and the art was shared by Howard Chaykin (7 issues), Renato Arlem (7 issues), Joe Bennett (2 issues), and Dennis Calero (1 issue).
The series picked up after the Infinite Crisis event. Hawkman had decided to stay on Thanagar to help rebuild, so Hawkgirl/Kendra Saunders went back to St. Roch to run the Stonechat Museum until Carter Hall returned. Hawkman eventually returned and the ending seemingly resolved the Shiera/Kendra conundrum, until the Blackest Night event brought it right back.
Over the years, many fans of Hawkman and Hawkgirl have shared their art with me and the Hawkworld social groups. A few days ago, one of Hawkworld's followers on Twitter asked me to feature his art. I thought that would be a cool idea to do once a week. So I'm taking Zachary Hering's suggestion and starting a spotlight on fan art every week on Monday!
The art above was post on Hawkworld Facebook back in 2016. I think it's the only piece anyone has ever done of me with Hawkman so the art by Styvens Jangal has always stayed in my memory.
Check out Hawkworld on Mondays!

When DC Comics announced a new Hawkgirl series in March 2023, we soon got a look at the new logo for the 6-issue miniseries. The logo by Amancay Naheulpan was definitely different from anything Hawkgirl has had before. Until now, her logos were basically versions of Hawkman's logos, but this is something uniquely her own. It's also a clever use of her Nth Metal mace. Fan reaction seems to be pretty positive, and it will definitely claim its place in the history of Hawkgirl logos.
I was curious how many Hawkgirl there have been in the past so I collected all the ones that I've saved over the years. If there is one that I've missed, feel free to let me know in the comments and I'll check it out!

Today's article brought to you by CBR includes Hawkman and Hath-Set. To be honest, when I saw the title, I thought that Hawkman and Hawkgirl would be on the list with the Gentleman Ghost. GG was hanged by Nighthawk (a former life of Hawkman) back in the 19th century and became stuck in a ghost-like state until the Hawks' reincarnation cycle is finished. For me, this one would fit the article better, but I suppose Hath-Set is the original Hawkman villain and therefore the more obvious choice.
