Black Adam Producer Hypes Up Hawkman Battle


 Black Adam is still months away from release, but slowly but surely we're starting to get some news, leaks, and comments about the movie. Last week, Black Adam producer Hiram Garcia talked about the battle between Black Adam and Hawkman. It looks like we'll be getting a huge fight scene. However, Hawkman is nowhere near Black Adam's strength levels, so unless they bring in the Claw of Horus, it will be interesting to see how they are going to pull it off. Various sites reported Garcia's comments, but Screen Rant surprisingly had the most detailed report.

Collecting Hawkman Comics! What to do?!


 
It's been a year since the last Hawkman series ended! What's a Hawkfan to do when Comic Book Day has nothing to offer? The answer is Back Issues! Collecting all of the series, mini-series, one-shots, guest appearances, and backup features is always fun. 

I keep track of everything I have with CLZ. It's a great site to keep track of what you have so check it out.

I often go to MyComicShop.com to look for what I'm missing. You can also tell them what you are looking for and they will email you when it comes in so it's pretty handy.

The History of the Live-Action Hawkman and Hawkgirl.

By Tim Board (Hawkworld Facebook and Hawkworld Twitter) Updated!

Thirty-nine years ago, on January 19 and 26, 1979, NBC broadcast "Legends of the Superheroes", a two-part special with several DC heroes and villains. This was also the show that gave us our first live-action Hawkman. Do you know how many men and women have played Hawkman and Hawkgirl over the years? While live-action Batman actors are almost too numerous to count, the number who have played the Winged Wonders on silver or small screens have been few and far between. Let's take a look at the actors who have played the Hawks over the years.

Introducing My Hawkman Collection in Japanese

 I don't often post stuff on YouTube, but I made a short video introducing my Hawkman collection in Japanese. Hawkman is not very well known in Japan, but that may all change after next year's Black Adam.

Discovering Nth Metal by Tim Board

Thoughts on the Nth Metal!

We've always heard about the Nth Metal and how it gives Hawkman the power to fly. But how fast? How does he control it? What other abilities does it give him? These sorts of questions are always bugging me so I've been digging around. Here is a list of all the abilities that Nth metal has shown over the years. I will continue to add to the list as other abilities show. When I add some new information and repost the article to the top of the blog.

Hawkman in the DC Animated Movie Universe


 Hawkman has made some appearances in DC's animated movies over the years. He has never been the main character and his first appearance in 2009 remains his most prominent. Here is a list of the DC animated films that Hawkman has appeared in over the years. He has been given some lines in only two of the seven. 

Also, Hawkgirl/Hawkwoman has sadly never appeared in any of DC's animated feature films to date.

"Leaving the Hawkman Toy Box Full"


Hawkman doesn't sell as well as some other comics. There's no denying that fact. There are several reasons for that of course. DC Comics barely promoted the recent Hawkman series after the first couple of issues. After starting with over 40k in sales, the lack of promotion, the uninspired Year-of-the-Villain event, the pandemic, and other things gradually pulled the series down to around 12k in sales and it was finally canceled after 29 issues. One of the reasons could be that many don't like the looks, background, or overall setup of Hawkman. There can be many reasons.
When a writer takes on Hawkman his job is to make Hawkman a relatable, exciting, attractive character. He can maybe give the character a new look, new powers, a new origin, a new base of operations, a new lover, new villains, etc. He can reach into that hero's past and change and "improve" him in a way that he thinks will make the character better than before. That's just common sense. That's what every writer wants to do. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

Hawkman and Hawkwoman's Choice (Screen Rant Article)

 Screen Rant is not my favorite site for comic book articles, but once in a while, they put out a good one. Here is an article by Wesley Smith that came out right after Hawkman No. 26 came out last year. It talks about the scene where Hawkman finally earns his redemption and is freed from the curse of reincarnation. It is a short but beautiful scene where we can see the love that Hawkman and Hawkwoman have for each other. Check out the issue and the article! LINK
