This was going around on Facebook and Twitter. It appears that Funko Pop will be releasing the Black Adam characters, including Aldis Hodges' Hawkman. It's possible that the figures will appear in July since that was the original release date before it got pushed back to October. Here is the article about the news.

It has been announced that DC Comics will be releasing Black Adam - The Justice Society Files: Hawkman on July 5th. The 48-page comic will feature two stories; Hawkman and Isis. Here are the details of Hawkman's story.
Long ago, Hawkman was the leader of the Justice Society, but what is he now? Still a hero, or another relic in a museum? Everything changes when he finds himself haunted by not only the past, but also the vengeful spirit of a wayward thief. Will this Gentleman Ghost be the death of Hawkman or will he deliver a warning from beyond the grave? The road to Black Adam begins here.It will be written by Cavan Scott with art by Scot Eaton and Norm Rapmund. Here is the link to the announcement.

Hawkman and Hawkgirl are two of the most iconic characters in American comics history. In the 80+ years since their first appearances, there have been almost 600 comics that featured one or both heroes. They have also been a part of many superhero teams and numerous crisis/crossover events that DC Comics has specialized in over the last few decades. They have been through many reboots, rewrites, and restarts. For a new comic book reader, it's natural not to know where to start with a character that has been around for 80+ years. That's where I come in. I have been a Hawk fan since 1977 when I discovered Hawkman on the back of an out-of-date 1976 DC Calendar. I have followed the twists, turns, flips, and flops over the years to keep it in order. This article is to help you see the amazing journey that these two characters have been on. I'll post a link to the list of comic books that they have a prominent role in, so if you want to look for something and the dates, you'll probably find it there. Enjoy the journey!

In 2004, Geoff Johns wrote a six-issue story that crossover over in the JSA and Hawkman series. It told the story of how Black Adam took over Khandaq and how the Justice Society went to stop him. It was one of the highlights of both series. The upcoming Black Adam movie (July 2022) will probably take its main storyline from this series. It's a fantastic story that is well worth picking up. You can find the collection of the six issues in the JSA #8 trade paperback. Another official Black Reign trade is scheduled to come out in June. Definitely worth picking up!

The Year 2021 was a typical between-series year for Hawkman; cameos, flashbacks, unfulfilled teases, panel fillers, several deaths, and solicitations that delivered nothing. Hawkgirl had a bit more this year in the Justice League series, but Hawkwoman made only one appearance. Hawkman also made appearances in two DC animated films but both were massive disappointments. Below is a summary of all the appearances the Hawks made this year.

It's been exactly 10 months since we got a Hawkman story where he is not a cameo, flashback, or panel filler. They announced the issue in the September solicitations, but there has been very little talk about the issue since, and since Hawkman is not even listed on the contents page, most fans will probably miss this one. It's the sixth story of eight in the issue and told over ten pages, which is actually two more than we got back in February's "DC Love is a Battlefield."

Here are the pieces that Ross has given us over the years. Here are the links to Alex Ross' websites: Official Website / Twitter / Facebook / Instagram

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. Black Adam Producer Hypes Up DC Movie's Hawkman Fight

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.
