Hawkman: Wings of Fury Reviews
Interesting blend of different superhero mythos Hawkman definitely owes some lineage to Superman, Batman even Wolverine. I thought the Hawkman/Hawkgirl dynamic made for an interesting twist on the Batman/Robin crime fighting duo but I was confused as to who Hawkwoman was, especially given that she narrates the first third of the book and isn’t properly weaved into the story. It was actually somewhat hard to follow the plot because of the frequent attempts to familiarise the reader with the back story it was obvious the writers were trying to introduce a new superhero into the genre but hadn’t yet found its legs. The art was really well done but some of the other cast of characters were a bit laughable, Animal Man in particular felt corny.
Hawkman is a bit like the Highlander except that he dies and is reborn over and over again, retaining his memories and powers received from an alien metal (which changed him centuries ago in ancient Egypt). His vast cultural experiences make him an excellent archaelogist, but he is growing a little bit tired of his eternal quest against evil, and tired of living in general. And he also has to figure out his complex relationship with "Hawkgirl," who is stuck in the same pattern of reincarnation. I like the artwork and storyline, although I feel like I've missed a few things by jumping into this series later on. Like the tension he has with Black Adam and "Hawkwoman."
Quite the disappointment...trying desperately to make the character interesting with convoluted backstories of reincarnation....no wonder hawkman can never catch on.The last 8 pages of full page art saved it from a one star.I have to go back and see if I like anything of geoff johns....maybe it is just his style that I don't likeThere have been better hawkman story arcs
Geoff Johns had "it" even back then. Takes a convoluted and abused character whom he makes compelling by boiling him down to the basics. It sounds so simple but it's something Johns has done time and time again. Rag Morales did most of the art in this book and it's also really solid work. I wish he was still working more today.
A fantastic read that had me turning the pages as fast as I could, and in the end it left me hanging, wanting more, and finding only an unresolved story that forces me to follow it to the next volume. Once more Geoff Johns delivers a truly fantastic reading experience!
Not much of a Hawkman fan but I wanted to know more about him and was happily surprised. The whole past lives comes to the forefront very well. Really enjoyed reading about Kendra as well. B
I enjoyed this enough that I will seek out more Geoff Johns. Great art. Good story.
