Collecting Hawkman Comics! What to do?!


 
It's been a year since the last Hawkman series ended! What's a Hawkfan to do when Comic Book Day has nothing to offer? The answer is Back Issues! Collecting all of the series, mini-series, one-shots, guest appearances, and backup features is always fun. 

I keep track of everything I have with CLZ. It's a great site to keep track of what you have so check it out.

I often go to MyComicShop.com to look for what I'm missing. You can also tell them what you are looking for and they will email you when it comes in so it's pretty handy.

Savage Hawkman and Earth 2 Hawkgirl

 


Savage Hawkman by Joe Bennett and Earth 2 Hawkgirl by Nicola Scott. I thought I would try and put these two amazing characters together in one picture. They were active during the same time, but were never featured together. They were in the same story called The New 52 Future Eye but they were in different story lines. I wish they could have been in an adventure together. Another missed opportunity by DC Comics.

Introducing My Hawkman Collection in Japanese

 I don't often post stuff on YouTube, but I made a short video introducing my Hawkman collection in Japanese. Hawkman is not very well known in Japan, but that may all change after next year's Black Adam.

Discovering Nth Metal by Tim Board

Thoughts on the Nth Metal!

We've always heard about the Nth Metal and how it gives Hawkman the power to fly. But how fast? How does he control it? What other abilities does it give him? These sorts of questions are always bugging me so I've been digging around. Here is a list of all the abilities that Nth metal has shown over the years. I will continue to add to the list as other abilities show. When I add some new information and repost the article to the top of the blog.

Hawkman in the DC Animated Movie Universe


 Hawkman has made some appearances in DC's animated movies over the years. He has never been the main character and his first appearance in 2009 remains his most prominent. Here is a list of the DC animated films that Hawkman has appeared in over the years. He has been given some lines in only two of the seven. 

Also, Hawkgirl/Hawkwoman has sadly never appeared in any of DC's animated feature films to date.

"Leaving the Hawkman Toy Box Full"


Hawkman doesn't sell as well as some other comics. There's no denying that fact. There are several reasons for that of course. DC Comics barely promoted the recent Hawkman series after the first couple of issues. After starting with over 40k in sales, the lack of promotion, the uninspired Year-of-the-Villain event, the pandemic, and other things gradually pulled the series down to around 12k in sales and it was finally canceled after 29 issues. One of the reasons could be that many don't like the looks, background, or overall setup of Hawkman. There can be many reasons.
When a writer takes on Hawkman his job is to make Hawkman a relatable, exciting, attractive character. He can maybe give the character a new look, new powers, a new origin, a new base of operations, a new lover, new villains, etc. He can reach into that hero's past and change and "improve" him in a way that he thinks will make the character better than before. That's just common sense. That's what every writer wants to do. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
