Here is the history of Hawkman and Hawkwoman/Hawkgirl explained as simply as possible. I've tried to include all of the major events, reboots, changes, and series that the Hawks have experienced since their first appearance in 1940. I've also made an attempt to explain the current Hawkman, Hawkwoman, and Hawkgirl as simply as possible. If you click the link, you can see the chart up close. I hope they help. If you notice something that is wrong or something you think I should include in the chart, feel free to leave it in the comments.

Hawkgirl first appeared as Shiera Sanders/Chay-ara in Flash Comics No. 1 which was published in November 1939. But she didn't strap on the wings until All-Star Comics No. 5 which came out on April 25, 1941. This month is the 80th anniversary of the first appearance of Hawkgirl, so I've made some flashcards of some of the historic moments from Hawkgirl/Hawkwoman's 80 years!

Here is my collage to celebrate Hawkgirl's 80th anniversary. She first appeared as Shiera in Flash Comics No. 1 (November 1939), but she became Hawkgirl for the first time in All-Star Comics No. 5, published on April 25, 1941. I started making this collage during the summer of 2020, searching endlessly for pictures to use. As with the Hawkman collages, their wings always made it a challenge. After starting over numerous times, it gradually came together. I hope it is worthy of one of the greatest superheroines in comics. I've listed the artists whose work I used to create the collage down below.
Richard Howell, Bruce Patterson
Graham Nolan, Sam Parsons
Steve Lieber, Rick Magyar, Rob Schwager
Patrick Gleason, Christian Alamy, John Kalisz, Digital Chameleon
Nicola Scott, Trevor Scott, Alex Sinclair
Yildiray Cinar, Trevor Scott, Alex Sinclair
Joe Bennett, Art Thibert, Guy Major
Greg Capullo, Jonathan Glapion, FCO Plascencia
Jim Lee, Sandra Hope, Tomeu Morey
Jorge Jimenez, Alejandro Sanchez
Bryan Hitch, Andrew Currie, Jeremiah Skipper
Fernando Pasarin, Oclair Albert, Jeromy Cox
Marco Castiello, Danny Miki, Jeromy Cox
David Marquez, Tamra Bonvillain
Many thanks to all the amazing artists who brought Hawkgirl to life over the years!

During the month of January and February, Doug Zawisza did some awesome sketch cards of many of the characters, including Hawkman and Hawkwoman as well as their friends and enemies! They were so good that I collected them! I was lucky enough to receive four of these a few years ago when Doug sent me some Hawk figures from the States.
Also, if you have never picked up "Hawkman Companion" by Doug, you're missing out on a great record of Hawkman and Hawkwoman history! This book is a must for any Hawkfan! I'll post links below for you to order your copy. Enjoy!

DC Comics put out a Valentine's Day special on February 9th called "DC Love is a battlefield." It had eight-page features of ten couples. Jose Luis, Jonas Trindade, and Rex Lokus gave us a beautiful shot of Hawkman (Carter Hal) and Hawkwoman (Shayera Hol) in the last panel of the story.
I wanted a version without the panels and words, so I clipped the hawks out of the art to make a png file. I then add a new background of a blue sky. I had to look around for a while to find a png file of a sun to set behind their wings that would match the color of the rays on their wings. I also had to patch up a hole in Hawkman's left wing. I clipped a part of his right wing and added it to the left wing. I also added Hawkman and Hawkwoman logos. Pretty happy with the end result!

Since I first started following Hawkman in 1977, I've gradually built up my collection of Hawkman and Hawkwoman comics, art, trades, figures, and other items. I've especially worked on building up my art collection in recent years. Here is a list of the items I have displayed in my collection.

The first group head photo of Hawkworld / Art by Joe Prado
Five years ago, on January 15, 2016, I started the Hawkworld group on Facebook and the Hawkworld account on Twitter. It was just on a whim, to be honest. I had been bouncing around between groups and sites, looking for Hawkman, and it suddenly dawned on me to just start my own group. I had a bunch of ideas and things I wanted to do, and I didn't want to invade someone else's group, so I started Hawkman Winged Warrior.

“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?

The long-awaited issue of Hawkman No. 27 has finally been released. Ever since the jaw-dropping cover by Mikel Janin was released back in June, Justice Society fans have been waiting for this one. With the announcement of the ending of the series coming in November, this issue took on a whole different look and meaning.
