Hawkman Review 2021: A Year of Cameos, Flashbacks, Teases, Deaths, and Waiting

 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.

'Tis the Season to be Freezin': A Hawkman-Harley Quinn Story


'Tis the Season to be Freezin' 
"A Change of Heart" 
Script: Tara Roberts 
Art: Eric Battle 
Colors: Eva De La Cruz
Letters: Ferran Delgado
Editor: Katie Kubert

 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."

Hawkman by Alex Ross

 Over the years, Alex Ross has given us some truly magnificent works of Hawkman. Although his work is out of my price range, I was fortunate to get a signed print of the cover of Justice No. 7. 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

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.

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
