Here is the history of Hawkman and Hawkwoman/Hawkgirl explained as simply as possible. I've tried to include all of the major events, reboots, changes, and series that the Hawks have experienced since their first appearance in 1940. I've also made an attempt to explain the current Hawkman, Hawkwoman, and Hawkgirl as simply as possible. If you click the link, you can see the chart up close. I hope they help. If you notice something that is wrong or something you think I should include in the chart, feel free to leave it in the comments.

During the month of January and February, Doug Zawisza did some awesome sketch cards of many of the characters, including Hawkman and Hawkwoman as well as their friends and enemies! They were so good that I collected them! I was lucky enough to receive four of these a few years ago when Doug sent me some Hawk figures from the States.
Also, if you have never picked up "Hawkman Companion" by Doug, you're missing out on a great record of Hawkman and Hawkwoman history! This book is a must for any Hawkfan! I'll post links below for you to order your copy. Enjoy!
Hawkman Companion (2008) by Doug Zawisza

DC Comics put out a Valentine's Day special on February 9th called "DC Love is a battlefield." It had eight-page features of ten couples. Jose Luis, Jonas Trindade, and Rex Lokus gave us a beautiful shot of Hawkman (Carter Hal) and Hawkwoman (Shayera Hol) in the last panel of the story.
I wanted a version without the panels and words, so I clipped the hawks out of the art to make a png file. I then add a new background of a blue sky. I had to look around for a while to find a png file of a sun to set behind their wings that would match the color of the rays on their wings. I also had to patch up a hole in Hawkman's left wing. I clipped a part of his right wing and added it to the left wing. I also added Hawkman and Hawkwoman logos. Pretty happy with the end result!

The complete set of the trade paperbacks of Hawkman Vol. V by Robert Venditti is now out! One of the best Hawkman series came to an end last November. This series has consistently been reviewed as one of the best series DC Comics has put out in recent years. Even if you know nothing about Hawkman, you will be able to dive right in and enjoy the series. From the amazing new origin by Venditti and the art of Bryan Hitch to the beautiful ending and art of Fernando Pasarin, you won't be able to put it down. There are four volumes in all:

Since I first started following Hawkman in 1977, I've gradually built up my collection of Hawkman and Hawkwoman comics, art, trades, figures, and other items. I've especially worked on building up my art collection in recent years. Here is a list of the items I have displayed in my collection.

The first group head photo of Hawkworld / Art by Joe Prado
Five years ago, on January 15, 2016, I started the Hawkworld group on Facebook and the Hawkworld account on Twitter. It was just on a whim, to be honest. I had been bouncing around between groups and sites, looking for Hawkman, and it suddenly dawned on me to just start my own group. I had a bunch of ideas and things I wanted to do, and I didn't want to invade someone else's group, so I started Hawkman Winged Warrior.

Here is a video of all 255 comics of the Hawkman Legacy list that I compiled with the help of Robert Venditti (Hawkman Vol. V), Doug Zawisza (Hawkman Companion), and George Gene Gustines (New York Times).

A few months ago, when we were coming out of the shutdown from the Coronavirus and comics were starting up again, I had some trouble getting my comics in Japan. Hawkman No. 25 was especially hard to get and I was still having trouble finding a copy six months after its release. I put out a word on Twitter to see if anyone could help me find a copy. But then I received a couple of tweets from Robert Venditti, the writer of the Hawkman Vol. V series.

The cover of Hawkman No. 29 is truly a masterpiece and one of the best ever of Hawkman and Hawkwoman together. But I had a desire to see the picture "cleaned up" and see the two without the blood and ripped costumes. Not expecting anything, I tweeted that I would like to see it. Lo and behold, artist Mikel Janin responded and gave Hawkfans a truly beautiful version of a great cover. He also shared many more "unfinished" unfinished covers on Hawkworld Facebook! Many thanks to Mikel for his generosity and wonderful work on the recent series. We hope we get to see more Hawkman and Hawkwoman art by him in the future!

All throughout November, guest writers will be weighing in on fandom, specifically, guest writers who identify strongly with characters, teams, or franchises online. Each piece will feature a personal look at why a writer gravitates to a character, what keeps their interest, and — most importantly — a set of reading recommendations for folks looking to better understand that character.
Today, Tim Board of the Hawkworld Twitter account writes about his favorite character, Hawkman…
We've celebrated Hawkman Day together since 2016, and it's grown quite a bit. It's been recognized on many sites, and even got a mention in Jennifer DeRoss' fantastic Gardner Fox biography. But is November 10th accurate?
