Is the run of Geoff pretty good or not?

-bump- I've yet to read this series either so I'm also interested in what people have to say.

Have not read any of it as of yet. Am interested, though.

Never read it, but considering that it LITERALLY saved Hawkman from being forbidden from being written about, it has to have at least some saving graces.

What do you mean?

@Gambit1024: Hawkman's backstory had become so convoluted that editorial didn't want to use him. They introduced Zauriel to be a replacement Hawkman. When Geoff Johns came along, he integrated all of Hawkman's weird origins into one, allowing Hawkman to return.

@Icarusflies: Really? Well, I guess if anybody can do something like that, it'd be Johns. Weird backstories seem to be his specialty. And Zauriel? He was nothing like Hawkman, other than the fact that he had wings.

John's run was rather solid , he made Hawkman make sense and did some great things with the love story between Carter and Shay-era

@Gambit1024: He was originally I guess. I'm not making that up, writers have admitted that's what Zauriel was for.

@Icarusflies: No I believe you, I just think that that was a dumb reason on the writer's part, lol.

I have read the entire run and it was great. Hawkman is a bad ass and Johns wrote him very well and I love Rags's art. Hawkman had his own city to protect and it was developing nicely until they changed it to Hawkgirl and then it turned to crap. If you have not read it I would suggest that you do
