Episode #001: The Hawkworld Report LINKContents:
When I read an article, watch a YouTube video, or chat with someone about Hawkman, there is almost always the comment about how confusing he is. I don't dispute that, because there are different versions. There are the Golden Age Earth-2, Siver Age Earth-1, Hawkworld, Zero Crisis, Savage, and the current versions. They all have different origins and stories.

Great article by Ed Catto on two of the greatest artists ever to draw Hawkman: Joe Kubert and Murphy Anderson! Ed gave Hawkworld a mention as well! Check it out!

It was announced on May 25th that there may be a new Justice Society comic coming our way. Details are very sketchy. There was no release date announced. Apparently, Geoff Johns is the writer and Bryan Hitch is the artist. Hawkman appears to be in the lineup but there is no sign of Hawkwoman. More details are coming I assume. I'll add two links to the news below. Stay tuned and Wings crossed!

Back in 1966, Button World released a series of pins of the DC and Marvel Superheroes. Hawkman got his own badge as well. The pin is about 3cm wide and features the art of Murphy Anderson. The badge has become a collector's item over the years. You can see them sold anywhere from $10 to over $100.
