Tim Board's Hawkworld Gallery

 


Since I first started following Hawkman in 1977, I've gradually built up my collection of Hawkman and Hawkwoman comics, art, trades, figures, and other items. I've especially worked on building up my art collection in recent years. Here is a list of the items I have displayed in my collection.

Five Years of Hawkworld

The first group head photo of Hawkworld / Art by Joe Prado

Five years ago, on January 15, 2016, I started the Hawkworld group on Facebook and the Hawkworld account on Twitter. It was just on a whim, to be honest. I had been bouncing around between groups and sites, looking for Hawkman, and it suddenly dawned on me to just start my own group. I had a bunch of ideas and things I wanted to do, and I didn't want to invade someone else's group, so I started Hawkman Winged Warrior.

The History of Hawkman and Hawkwoman by Tim Board

 Here is the history of Hawkman and Hawkwoman/Hawkgirl explained as simply as possible. I've tried to include all of the major events, reboots, changes, and series that the Hawks have experienced since their first appearance in 1940. I've also made an attempt to explain the current Hawkman, Hawkwoman, and Hawkgirl as simply as possible. If you click the link, you can see the chart up close. I hope they help. If you notice something that is wrong or something you think I should include in the chart, feel free to leave it in the comments.

Mind-blowing Gift from Robert Venditti!

 


A few months ago, when we were coming out of the shutdown from the Coronavirus and comics were starting up again, I had some trouble getting my comics in Japan. Hawkman No. 25 was especially hard to get and I was still having trouble finding a copy six months after its release. I put out a word on Twitter to see if anyone could help me find a copy. But then I received a couple of tweets from Robert Venditti, the writer of the Hawkman Vol. V series.

New Version of the Cover of Hawkman No. 29 by Mikel Janin

 The cover of Hawkman No. 29 is truly a masterpiece and one of the best ever of Hawkman and Hawkwoman together. But I had a desire to see the picture "cleaned up" and see the two without the blood and ripped costumes. Not expecting anything, I tweeted that I would like to see it. Lo and behold, artist Mikel Janin responded and gave Hawkfans a truly beautiful version of a great cover. He also shared many more "unfinished" unfinished covers on Hawkworld Facebook! Many thanks to Mikel for his generosity and wonderful work on the recent series. We hope we get to see more Hawkman and Hawkwoman art by him in the future!

Today, Tim Board of the Hawkworld Twitter account writes about his favorite character, Hawkman…
