Board Review of Hawkman No. 26: Hawks Eternal Conclusion: Death of a Thousand Hawks


The soaring journey of exploration and discovery across time and space with Hawkman and Hawkwoman has come to an end, and another has begun. What an amazing journey it has been so far. Starting from the islands of Greece, we saw ancient Egypt, the Feitheran's Dinosaur Island, the floating cities of Thanagar, Atom's Microverse, the Hawktastic Soarship, the destruction of Krypton, a battle for Earth over London, an endless war on Nebulen, the dark Shadowlands, the familiar Midway City, the gargantuan tomb of Titan Hawk, and finally the temple of the Lord of the Void on Qgga.

Hawkman Unleased Part Three: Soaring to New Heights

By Tim Board

Hawkman Unleashed Part One: The Reason and The Components of a Hero 


On March 14, 2018, the new Hawkman series by Robert Venditti was announced. About a month after the announcement, I had the huge privilege of joining Rob and Jace Milam on The Comic Source podcast to talk about the upcoming series.
During the podcast, Jace said, "...ten, fifteen years from now when someone asks Tim which Hawkman run he should read and Tim says, "Read Venditti's run. That's where it's at."
We're two years into the run and I'm there. Rob's run on Hawkman has become the definitive run for comic book fans to find out about Hawkman. There have been many great series in the history of Hawkman and this does not take anything away from those fantastic stories. But Venditti's run has brought it all together, connected everything, and explained the great characters of Hawkman and Hawkwoman. This is the fifth series titled Hawkman and usually, it would be Vol. 5, but since the very beginning, I've been calling it Vol. V in honor of Venditti. For the third and final article, let's take a look at what Venditti has brought to the origin/purpose, secret identity, love, powers, weapons, locations, villains, supporting cast, and death/reincarnation of Hawkman.

Who will be cast as Hawkman in the Black Adam movie?

The Black Adam starring Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock is still scheduled to be released in December 2021. Very little news and a whole lot of rumors have been flying around about the movie for years. As the production schedule gets closer, there is a lot of speculation about who will play Hawkman. Hawkman has never appeared on the big screen, so there is a lot of excitement among fans about who will be announced. Many fan sites have made their predictions about who is going to be the first to bring the Winged Wonder to the silver screen. Below are some of the predictions and links to the sites. Who do you want to be cast as Hawkman?

Hawkworld (Tim Board)
Hawkman: Alexander Skarsgard
My own personal choice for Hawkman has been Skarsgard for a few years now. He would be perfect casting in my opinion.

Hawkman Unleashed Part Two: Breaking Down Hawkman's History

By Tim Board

   During Hawkman's 80-year history, he has had seven series, four mini-series, many special one-shot editions, and several runs in other comics. If we gave Hawkman comics a legacy count, we'll reach No. 250 in September 2020. (Check out the list here.) That's pretty low for a character that has been around that long. Hawkman seems to be a character that is impossible to ignore as a concept, but the concept has proved to be difficult to put onto the comic book pages for whatever reason. In Hawkman Unleashed Part One, I listed nine things that should be included in a Hawkman comic: origin/purpose, secret identity, love, powers, weapons, locations, villains, supporting cast, and death/reincarnation. In Hawkman Unleashed Part Two, let's take a look through the history of Hawkman comics and see how each series included the nine components.

Hawkman Unleashed Part One: The Reason and The Components of a Hero

By Tim Board
Hawkman 80th Anniversary Collage by Tim Board

In my mind, Hawkman is the greatest comic book character ever created. Now before all the Batman and Spider-man fans scoff, curse, and click away, let me explain why I think this way. We all love comics. We love how a certain character or story grabbed our attention, our interest, and finally our heart and never let go. For me, that character is Hawkman. For you, it might be Wonder Woman or Captain America. And that is perfectly fine. Somewhere, somehow, that character became rooted in your consciousness and stayed. Every time you see the image of that character, your heart immediately starts beating faster. You'll remember your favorite stories where the character lifted you up. Or you may even feel enraged, as you remember a story where you feel your hero was mistreated. But that's why comic books will never go away. These characters have become a part of our identity, and they keep us young until our dying day.

Board Review of Hawkman No. 25: Hawks Eternal Part Two: Taking Lives


At the end of the last issue, we were left with the phrase "The Power of a Thousand Lifetimes." My guess was that both Hawkman and Hawkwoman would call their former lives to the present in the way Hawkman did when he took down the Deathbringers to fight the Lord of the Void (LOTV). That's not what happened. We got a long-awaited reveal, a puzzling comment about a weapon, and the true meaning of the aforementioned phrase. Slight spoilers ahead!
