“There is only one truth that I know to be certain…I was made to soar.”
The journey with Hawkman that began in June 2018 came to an end today. It’s a bittersweet feeling, because I feel disappointed that it has ended, but elated that it was better than it had any right to be. When the article in the Washington Post in March 2018 announced the upcoming new series by Robert Venditti, I had no idea what to expect. A couple months before the series started, I had the honor of “meeting” Robert in a podcast on The Comic Source. He talked about Hawkman being a story of exploration and discovery. And that is exactly what we got.

Hawkman Vol. V kicked off in June 2018, and for two and a half years, Hawkfans were treated to one of the best series in the 81-year history of Hawkman and Hawkwoman. Sadly, the series has been canceled and will end with issue No. 29. The final issue will be released on November 10th, which just happens to be the 81st anniversary of Hawkman's first appearance in Flash Comics No. 1, released back in 1939. To celebrate a great series and the anniversary of two great characters, I've created a tribute collage to remember most of the great moments in the series. I started work on this back in April 2020, but after hearing about the cancellation, I sped it up and finally finished it. Under the collage is the list of all the artists who contributed to this great series. It's my way of saying thank you for giving us such a great book that the fans can enjoy for many years to come.
Note: If you want a pdf file of the collage, post your email in a comment or send me a private message on Twitter or Facebook.

What do you do when you're not immortal anymore? Do you cherish each and every moment more? Do you suddenly become aware of the clock as your life heads to the inevitable finish? Or does the thought of your life ending paralyze you; not because you are afraid for yourself, but because you are afraid for the ones you love?

Congratulations to Hawkman Cosplayer Andy Holt! Andy created an amazing costume with a wingspan of over 19ft. This set the record for the "largest mechanical wings on a cosplay suit." Andy has set the world record with the costume and he is listed in the 2021 edition of the Guinness World Records! Congratulations to Andy Holt!

I teach in a private school in southern Japan. I've taught here for 25 yrs. During the school year, all of the teachers are required to give a motivational speech to the students. Well, last week it was my turn and I talked about what else? Hawkman!

Hawkman Vol. V was started in June 2018. Since then, the series has received outstanding reviews and has been steadily building a devout fan base. Through the Hawkworld fan group on Twitter and Facebook, many fans have expressed their love for the soaring odyssey that writer Robert Venditti has created. It has recently been reported that DC Comics is canceling the series with issue No. 29, which comes out in November, with no announcement of a replacement. This series cannot end now. Over the last two years, Venditti has revitalized one of the most iconic characters in comic book history and fans are hoping to see the story continue. This petition is for fans of the comic to express their support for the comic to continue, whether it be in paper or digital form. With this petition, we can show DC Comics how much the series is loved and enjoyed by fans who have followed Hawkman and DC Comics for many years. Let's keep Hawkman soaring!

During the podcast, Jace said, "...ten, fifteen years from now when someone asks Tim which Hawkman run he should read and Tim says, "Read Venditti's run. That's where it's at."
We're two years into the run and I'm there. Rob's run on Hawkman has become the definitive run for comic book fans to find out about Hawkman. There have been many great series in the history of Hawkman and this does not take anything away from those fantastic stories. But Venditti's run has brought it all together, connected everything, and explained the great characters of Hawkman and Hawkwoman. This is the fifth series titled Hawkman and usually, it would be Vol. 5, but since the very beginning, I've been calling it Vol. V in honor of Venditti. For the third and final article, let's take a look at what Venditti has brought to the origin/purpose, secret identity, love, powers, weapons, locations, villains, supporting cast, and death/reincarnation of Hawkman.

Hawkman: Alexander Skarsgard
My own personal choice for Hawkman has been Skarsgard for a few years now. He would be perfect casting in my opinion.
