Hawkman #21 Review

There are fun colors and images that make this worth the buy.

Hawkman acts more like the protagonist of Mad Max than simply his own person. By that, I mean that Hawkman has become the character that wanders across varied adventures, and the audience really gets to see the dynamics of other characters. In earnest, this issue properly highlights the mythos of Carter Hall, who has always been a figure entering into the DC mainstay continuity and has simply voyaged from story to story. The addition of Hawkwoman, Adam Strange, and the Atom provides a fun entanglement for the story.

Within this issue, there is a fantastic brawl fight between two different Thanagarians, with one being a derivative from the Dark Multiverse. While this issue doesn’t provide much great depth, it does give some cool set pieces and visuals. Seeing a gigantic Hawkman get beat by a villainous Hawkman is a cool visual, but I don’t really feel the emotional value of this fight.

Sprinkled in are some bits of character dialogue within that offer some insight towards the context of what occurs. Full disclosure, I am reading this issue as my first taste of Hawkman, but I don’t read or feel the subtlety your typical comic book series may use. Despite a lack of depth within this issue, Venditti gives some fantastic visual cues for this comic book. There are fun colors and images that make this worth the buy, especially for people who have read previous issues.
