The List of Hawkworld Comics 1939-2020


I've put together a list of comics that Hawkman and Hawkwoman have appeared in since 1939. I have listed the regular series, mini-series, back-up features, one-shots, tie-ins, guest appearances and the issues from other characters' or teams' series that are important in their histories. I also added some notes that are important in their history. It's a work in progress, but maybe this will help Hawkman, Hawkwoman, and Hawkgirl fans navigate through the world of Hawkworld comics. Enjoy!

Note: Not all of the team issues are listed here. I tried to look back and list just the significant moments in the teams' (Justice Society, Justice League, All-Star Squadron) issues. If there are some moments that you think should be added, please comment below!

Update: I just added a separate page for the trade paperbacks, collections, omnibuses, etc. Go to the bottom of the page and click the tab!

The Story of Shayera Hol/Hawkwoman

By Tim Board
Since the release of the Dark Nights Metal series in 2017-18, Hawkfans have been wondering when Hawkman and Hawkgirl were going to get back together. The current Hawkman series kicked off in June 2018, but Hawkgirl was not a part of the series. We saw her in some of her past lives; Chay-ara, Shayera Thal, and Sherra, but we never saw her as Hawkgirl in the first 18 issues. That all changed in issues #19-23. This article is to explain who Hawkgirl and Hawkwoman are and their connection to Hawkman. Warning: This article contains spoilers, so if you have not read Hawkman No. 19-23, check those issues out first!

Board Review of Hawkman No. 23: Miasma of Fear


It was a long wait, 55 days to be exact, but Hawkman No. 23 was finally released. We were left in suspense about the story about a "Plague Doctor" in the 17th century Europe coming out while the world is fighting a pandemic in real-time. It was uncanny, to say the least, but writer Robert Venditti had the idea for the story back in October. And it leads right into a moment we've been wanting for a long time.

The Greatest Hawkgirl/Hawkwoman Stories

By Tim Board

Art by Ed Coutts
On April 25, 1941, in All-Star Comics No. 5, Shiera Sanders became Hawkgirl for the first time, and so began the story of one of the most famous and recognizable characters in the history of DC Comics. Hawkgirl may have been a sort of sidekick to Hawkman in the beginning, but she is no man's sidekick now. She is one of the most interesting and powerful characters in comics, with her own set of powers, abilities, and history. I could have gone into her history to celebrate Hawkgirl Day 2020, but this year I thought I would list my favorite Hawkgirl stories. I'm sure every Hawkgirl/Hawkwoman fan has their own favorites, so my apologies in advance if they aren't on the list. I also tried to do a countdown of best stories, but that proved to be difficult since I like them equally. So here are my favorite Hawkgirl/Hawkwoman stories in chronological order. Let us know which is your favorite in the comments!

Discovering Nth Metal by Tim Board

Art by Adam Kubert
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.

Preview of Hawkman No. 23 (May 5 Release)


Note: Hawkman was originally scheduled to be released on April 8th. The new release date is May 5th. 

Hawkman No. 23 has been raising eyebrows and getting some headlines like the following:

Comic Book Resources: DC Introduces a Very, VERY Different Hawkman in April
Comicon: Fighting Off The Plague In ‘Hawkman’ #23 Seems Rather Prescient 

Preview of the first five pages on Graphic Policy

The issue is about a former life of Hawkman during the 17th century. He was a character called the Plague Doctor and he lived in Europe during the Black Plague. Here is the explanation of the issue from DC Comics'  April solicitations.

DC Solicitations for June 2020

The DC Solicitations for June 2020 are out. Hawkman No. 25 is set to be released on June 10. There was a big surprise in that the book will have a new art team. Marco Castiello and Danny Mike will be doing the book this time around. No idea if it is a one-off or continuing thing. The cover is by Mikel Janin, and we get our first look at the Lord of the Void. Robert Venditti will continue writing the book! Here's the info on the book: 
Clash from the past! Hawkman and Hawkwoman wage war against the Lord Beyond the Void in a desperate bid to escape his realm! Once the god to whom Hawkman answered, now his mortal enemy—the Lord hates the hero Hawkman has become and will stop at nothing to drain his life force away and put an end to his reincarnations for good!
Don't miss Hawkman No. 25 on June 10th!

Board Review of Hawkman No. 22: Death's Doorway: From End to Beginning

Hawkman 22 Cover by Mikel Janin
Intense! There have been many Hawkman comics over the years that made me hold my breath as I read them. The Hawkworld series by Tim Truman and the Return of Hawkman in the JSA series by Geoff Johns come to mind. This issue was at that level. It was an intense story with the Sky Tyrant story seemingly approaching the climax.
