Thought for the Day: A Knowledgeable Editor Base is Vital

Been seeing a lot of comic book review sites and articles lately that talk about how bad the editing system is in DC Comics. It's almost like they have no editors, editors who know nothing about the characters, or editors who really don't care. A central editor for everyone to stay in touch with is vital for a system like DC Comics.
And DC Comics seems like they are ignoring one of their most vital, knowledgeable, and passionate resources; the fans.
Thought for the day.

Happy Birthday to Carter Hall!

Happy Birthday to Hawkman (Carter Hall)! According to the 1976 DC Calendar, Carter Hall was born on June 1st!

Give JSA Another Shot! (Article by We Got This Covered)

Charlotte Simmons of the We Got This Covered site put out a word for the JSA, particularly Hawkman and Doctor Fate, asking James Gunn and the new DCU to give the characters another shot in another movie. Simmons was a bit hard on Black Adam IMHO, but it's nice to see the article and all the positive comments that Hawkman received. Check out the article! I hope it becomes a reality someday. 

DC defenders urge James Gunn to give the one bright spot of a major misfire another shot 

Then there's a sightly more depressing take on Aldis Hodges' chances of putting on the wings again...

Hawkman's Mansion

   In the Black Adam movie, we got a brief look at Hawkman's mansion. From the brief shots that we saw, it was truly impressive and displayed Carter Hall's immense wealth. In the movie, it was located in St. Roch, Louisiana and served as the Justice Society's headquarters. As Hawkfans remember, St. Roch was Hawkman and Hawkgirl's base during the Vol. 4 series by Geoff Johns and later Jimmy Palmiotti during the 2000s. It also made an appearance in the Legends of Tomorrow TV series.

Hawkman Comics 1939-2023

 Here is a link to a list of all the #Hawkman, #Hawkgirl, #Hawkwoman comics and also comics that include important moments in their history. When did Hawkman first use his mace? When did Hawkgirl change her name to Hawkwoman? When did Kendra first appear? I've tried to include all the issues and important moments in their history, so hopefully this will serve as a reference source for the comic book fans who are looking for the Hawks. Currently, there are over 600 comics on the list. Click the screenshot of the worksheet below and it will take you there. Feel free to ask questions or point out something that I may have missed.

The Home of the Golden Age Carter Hall

Where did Hawkman live during the Golden Age? He is described as a wealthy man living in New York. In Flash Comics No. 3 (March 1940), Hawkman rescues a group of men from an evil scientist and tells them to go to his home where Shiera will be waiting for them. In one panel, we see them getting into a taxi and giving the driver the address: 20 Hudson Terrace.

Final Verdict on Black Adam

Well, the dust has finally settled, and it appears that the Black Adam era is over. Right after Black Adam came out in October 2022, it was announced that the DCEU was over and James Gunn and Peter Safran were taking over the new DCU. Gunn had no plans for Black Adam or Dwayne Johnson for the "first stage" of whatever the DCU is, and it's expected to be a ten-year plan. That means that Black Adam is pretty much done. The movie had almost no marketing where I live (Japan), China banned the movie for something Pierce Brosnan did with the Dalai Lama (apparently), and the movie "critics" hated the movie, so it pretty much crashed and burned. There were talks of spinoffs for some of the Justice Society heroes, including Hawkman, but those rumors have pretty much melted away quicker than dumping a bucket of water on the Wicked Witch of the West.

Black Adam Review (Immediate Reaction Podcast)

Black Adam was finally released in Japan on December 2. I watched it four times on opening day. After I got home, I made a podcast of the process I went through to get here and my initial thoughts on the movie. A bit rambling maybe, but just a Hawkman talking straight about Hawkman's first appearance on the movie screen. LINK

A Map to the Hawk Universe

For Hawkman Day 2022, I decided to make a map of Hawkman's history in the style of Grant Morrison's amazing Map of the Multiverse that came out in 2014. My Hawkmap is nothing as grand and deep as Morrison's, but I wanted to make something that showed Hawkman's history and important information all on one page. Here are the details of the map.
