Hawkman Day was November 20 and I was busy trying to get The Complete History of Hawkman, Hawkwoman, and Hawkgirl finished, so I took a week off from posting any news or articles. So this week I'll cover two weeks' worth.

To celebrate Hawkman Day, I started writing a history of Hawkman, Hawkwoman, and Hawkgirl in the comics. The only problem is, I started writing it in 2021! Life can get busy and this project got shoved aside many times over the last 2 and a half years. I'm not a professional writer. The only things that I have to offer are my knowledge of the characters as I have seen them in the comics, and my love for the characters. I'm sure there are many mistakes and omissions in this history. I hope to add and fix it eventually, but I wanted to finally get this out for Hawkman Day this year so here it is. It is rather long and I will try to break it up later, but if you are a Hawksfan, I hope you enjoy going through their history and that the references will help you find what you are looking for. I don't know how much longer I will be able to do Hawkworld, but I'm glad I was able to finish this and get it out for Hawkman's 84th anniversary of his first appearance in Flash Comics No. 1, way back on November 20, 1939. Feel free to leave some comments after you finish reading. Thanks for always supporting Hawkworld!

On November 10, 2020, Hawkman Vol. V by Robert Venditti came to a close. It started in June 2018, ran for 29 issues, and gave Hawkman (Carter Hall III) and Hawkwoman (Shayera Hol II) a fantastic reunion and a wonderful future. It expanded on Hawkman and Hawkwoman's origins, their relationship, Hawkman's friendship with Atom and even The Shade, and gave new abilities and even a new ship. It has become many Hawkfans' favorite Hawkman series of all time. So what has happened during the last three years?

Here is where the Hawks showed up this week!
|The Secret Files and Origins: Hawkman (October 2002)|
10 Most Surprising Professions of Justice League Members in DC History (Gobookmart)
About 15 heroes were listed, and the Hawks as museum curators were on the list as well. This was kind of surprising because the Hawks' use of weapons and their knowledge of archaeology made them perfect for the job. Even Shayera says in a Superman team-up story that she knows more about archaeology than most of the Ph.D.s on the planet. But the article does note that the job was a perfect fit for them.

DC Comics has many iconic couples, most going back decades. Their love and commitment to each other is a constant theme through their stories. There may be times when they fall away from each other, but they always find their way back to each other. Hawkman and Hawkwoman are one of those couples. Geoff Johns (JSA, Hawkman Vol. 4), Bruce Tim (Justice League Unlimited) and other writers have tried to destroy their love story and put them with other heroes, but it hasn't worked. Carter Hall/Katar Hol and Shiera Sanders/Shayera Hol have always ended up back together.
As with Superman and Lois Lane, or with Oliver Queen and Black Canary, you cannot tell the story of Hawkman and Hawkwoman without the other. Their story started together back in 1939 (Flash Comics No. 1) and it continues 84 years later. DC Comics may be ignoring one of their great love stories and promoting Hawkgirl/Kendra Saunders, who may or may not be bisexual with no real partner in her new mini-series, but when a writer who respects their history and the fans of the characters writes Hawkman and Hawkwoman, you can be sure that they will be together again.
In a recent CBR article, Cailyn Szelenski attempts to rank the couples of DC Comics. This is a bold attempt, and it may ruffle some feathers of fans of other heroes, but it's nice to see the Hawks be spotlighted in this way. Let's hope that DC Comics will wake up and give them a home for fans to go visit them once again.

|House Ad for Hawkman Vol. V (June 2018)|
Time flies as fast as Hawkman! The first issue of Hawkman Vol. V by Robert Venditti was released on June 13, 2018, 5 years ago today! The most recent Hawkman series continued for 29 issues, ending on November 10, 2020. In the series, it gave us a new origin for Hawkman, introduced us to numerous former lives of Hawkman, such as Catar-Ol of Krypton and Katarthul of Rann, and brought Hawkman and Hawkwoman truly back together for the first time since the Brightest Days series in 2010. The art by Bryan Hitch, Pat Olliffe, Fernando Pasarin and others made it one of the best Hawkman series ever. Since it's conclusion, it has often popped up on comic book reviewers' lists of the best series in recent DC Comics history.

A couple of years ago, I used the art from the DC Microheroes site and made a chart of all the looks that the Hawkman have had over the years. Just by looking at a costume, I think most comic book fans can tell what era it is from. Which is your favorite look for Hawkman and Hawkgirl?

Cosplayers are the best fans in the world. Their creativity comes from the heart. It may not be the best, but you can tell that they love what they are doing. But I have to say that Grace McClung is one of the best, if not the best I have ever seen. You can find her other cosplays on her Twitter and Instagram accounts. Definitely worth checking out! You can also find more amazing Hawkgirl cosplays here. Respect!

Here is a link to a list of all the #Hawkman, #Hawkgirl, #Hawkwoman comics and also comics that include important moments in their history. When did Hawkman first use his mace? When did Hawkgirl change her name to Hawkwoman? When did Kendra first appear? I've tried to include all the issues and important moments in their history, so hopefully this will serve as a reference source for the comic book fans who are looking for the Hawks. Currently, there are over 600 comics on the list. Click the screenshot of the worksheet below and it will take you there. Feel free to ask questions or point out something that I may have missed.
