Hawkman Day!

 I'm starting a new monthly event called Hawkman Day! Hawkman does not have his own comic right now, so I want to have a day for fans to share their favorite art, figures, cosplay, comics, and anything else that has to do with Hawkman, Hawkwoman, Hawkgirl, Hawkworld, their villains, etc. The 9th of every month will be the day! Starting at 12:00 a.m. on the ninth, come see the posts on Hawkworld Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram! Share your favorite stuff with your friends and followers on your favorite SNS sites. Let's keep the Winged Warriors soaring!

Tim Board's Hawkworld Gallery

 


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.

Five Years of Hawkworld

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.

Tim Board Highlights of Four Years of Hawkworld!


Four years of Hawkworld! On Wednesday, January 15th, it will be four years since I decided to start a Hawkman group. In 4 years, it's expanded to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and a blog. It's been an amazing 4 years! There have been many things that I never dreamed would happen when I started. This is a purely personal list, but here are the top moments for me since I started Hawkworld.

Celebrating Hawkworld's 4th anniversary: Luke Edd

Hawkworld started 4 years ago on January 15, 2016. Since then, I've met many awesome fellow Hawkfans on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and on this blog. One of those fans is Luke Edd. Actually, Luke is one of the people who inspired me to start Hawkworld in the first place. Luke created maybe one of the very first Hawkman blogs back in 2008. "Being Carter Hall" covered Hawkman and Hawkgirl comics and news for many years. I enjoyed reading his articles and he just may have been the one who planted the idea in my head to start Hawkworld. Soon after I started Hawkworld, Luke joined the group and shared many things with Hawkfans over the last few years. To help celebrate Hawkworld's 4th anniversary, Luke shared his love for the character and graciously allowed me to share it with anyone else so here it is!

Solving the Mystery of Thanagar Prime and Shayera Hol of the Justice League Series

In Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV's recent Hawkworld storyline in Justice League No. 14-16, we were introduced to a Shayera Hol who we did not recognize, Katar Hol aka The Savage Hawkman from the Death of Hawkman series, and a Thanagar we have never seen before. Since the Hawkworld storyline came out in December, Hawkfans have been wondering who these characters are. There has been a lot of debate about it. However, writer James Tynion IV graciously answered some questions on Twitter today, so with those facts, I'll try to break it down and explain who these characters are. There is no complete explanation, and there will still be some debate, but that's half the fun,  right? So, let's fly in and see if we can break it down.

Maybe you think Hawkman is lame...

Maybe you think Hawkman is lame. That's fine. We are all entitled to our own opinions. It's not my mission in life to change your likes/dislikes. What I do hope for is that people will see the enthusiasm for the hero at Hawkworld and see him differently. That's all.

Review of Hawkworld 2018

The new logo for the Hawkman series by Robert Venditti and Bryan Hitch starting on June 13th has been released. The general reaction of Hawkfans seems to be very positive.

Here is a rundown of the logos for Hawkman and Hawkgirl regular series and mini-series over the years.
