starkiller809's The Savage Hawkman #1 - Hawkman Rising review

Hawkman Soars

I've never been real found of Hawkman, but DC Comic's the New 52, gave me the perfect place to jump on. Tony Daniel is a pretty good writer so I gave it a chance. And I'm glad I did.
 
THE GOOD:
The art is really good. I like it because it gives the book a special feeling. It makes if feel different from the others "new" books. This also, to me seems like they are going in a new direction which is good. I love the beginning. it definitely will make old Hawkman fans feel like nothing has changed but things are about to. I really liked the threat that was presented here and I think that this is going to get really good. I also like seeing Hawkman's new way of being Hawkman. It's a lot cooler then a guy strapping wings around himself. 
 
THE BAD:
I wish we knew a little more about this villain but that's what issue 2's for. 
 
THE VERDICT: 4.5/5 (Amazing)
Now is the perfect time to start reading Hawkman. I think it's a good change from some of the characters that have 3 series. I think that he is a character that you won't feel is overused and I think that Tony Daniel has some good plans for the character. I would start reading Hawkman because it's actually a good place and it's enjoyable.

That, coupled with Hawkman's confusing history and my growing disinterest regarding the character. But, against myself, I decided to give it a shot.Right off the bat, I'd like to say that Philip Tan's art is amazing. It's very easy to follow and fits Daniel's writing perfectly. The scene of Carter Hall trying to destroy his armor was great, and especially near the end with...

    Sorry, This Is More Like the Average Hawkman 0

    Tony Daniel and Philip Tan add the Savage Hawkman to the list of DC relaunches that are bankrupt of any new or interesting ideas for what to do with its lead character. They simplify Hawkman down to an unremarkable superhero character and mistakenly seem to bank entirely on a slight, all-too-convenient twist on his powers as being enough to carry the readers' interest.It's very understandable to want to strip the character of Hawkman down to get rid of so much of the convoluted continuity the ch...
