Board Review of Hawkman No. 12: "Out of Many, One"



Caution: There are some spoilers ahead so read at your own peril or come back after you've read the issue!

When we set out on a journey of exploration and discovery with Hawkman twelve months ago, we wondered how the hero we know as Carter Hall would be changed. How will his story be written this time? What kind of hero will writer Robert Venditti and artist Bryan Hitch bring us? The answer turns out to be everything and nothing, both at the same time. The core of Hawkman remains unchanged. He is the superhero of flight. He is the superhero of the sky. He carries a mace. He is from Egypt. He is from Thanagar. Shiera is the love of his life. He is an archaeologist. He remains the hero we’ve always known.

About the artists taking on Hawkman after Bryan Hitch.

Covers for Hawkman Bryan (12), Will Conrad (13), Roger Robinson (14)
With Bryan Hitch leaving the Hawkman series after issue No. 12 (release date May 8th), there has been some speculation about the artists for the following issues. We've seen the solicitations for June and July. For issue No. 13, Will Conrad is doing the artwork. We were wondering if he was going to continue but the July solicitations show us that Pat Olliffe and Tom Palmer are doing the art for No. 14. So some fans were wondering if this was going to continue; a different artist for each issue. And that sometimes means the series is in trouble.

Board Review of Hawkman No. 11: "A Cast of Hawks"

By Tim Board

We all read comics books for different reasons. To experience the joy, the horror, the suspense, the exhilaration, the madness or the silliness. We pick up a comic book in expectation of how it will make us feel while reading it. We always have an opinion about it, whether it was good or bad. Some comics books surprise us, make us gasp in surprise, laugh out loud, and even get a bit emotional. When that happens, that comic book stays in our memory, making us smile when we remember back to when we first read it.
