The "Dispute" about the First Appearance of Hawkman


We've celebrated Hawkman Day together since 2016, and it's grown quite a bit. It's been recognized on many sites, and even got a mention in Jennifer DeRoss' fantastic Gardner Fox biography. But is November 10th accurate?

Gardner Fox Biography!


If you're a comic book fan, you know who Gardner Fox is. He's one of the most prolific writers in the history of comics. From the 30s until his death in 1986, it is said that he wrote over 4,000 comic book stories, including 1,500 stories for DC Comics. He is the creator of Hawkman and Hawkgirl, as well as the Flash, Doctor Fate, Zatanna, and Sandman. He also created the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, and then the Justice League of America two decades later. Amazingly, there has never been an official biography or book about one of the greatest writers in Comic book history, but we finally have one.
Being a Hawkman and Justice League fan, I was looking forward to reading the first biography of Gardner Fox, the man who created so many iconic heroes and superhero teams. As I read the book, it became clear that the history of Gardner Fox is the history of comics. Jennifer has gathered all the information available on Gardner Fox (no small feat!) and put it into an easy-to-follow course on not only the father of the Justice League but also on the history of comics itself. If you are a fan of comic books, this is one book you will want to read! Amazon Link
