Board Review of Hawkman No. 16: "Darkness Within: Old Ghosts"

   It’s DC Comics’ year of the villain, and Hawkman No. 16 brought us villains from every direction. We got Gentleman Ghost, arguably the most popular Hawk-villain in a flashback, a former villain-turned-ally in the Shade, Shadow Thief, arguably the most famous Hawk-villain all powered up, a giant shadow dragon, and the apparent arrival of the Earth-3 Hawkman Sky Tyrant. Wow, this book was fun!

The 80th Anniversary of Hawkman!

On November 10, 1939, Flash Comics No. 1 (cover date January 1940) was released. Hawkman, created by Gardner Fox, made his debut in the book and the iconic DC Comics hero celebrates his 80th birthday! The last 80 years have been a much bumpier ride for the Winged Wonder than for heroes like Superman, Batman, and The Flash, but the fact that he is still here and with an ongoing series is a testament to his appeal.
Join us in celebrating Hawkman's 80th Anniversary! If you have a website to post an article, a podcast, a YouTube channel, Hawkman art to share, please let us know on Facebook or Twitter and we will add the link to your site below! If you're a Hawkman fan, leave a message below to celebrate with us!

Gardner Fox Biography!

If you're a comic book fan, you know who Gardner Fox is. He's one of the most prolific writers in the history of comics. From the 30s until his death in 1986, it is said that he wrote over 4,000 comic book stories, including 1,500 stories for DC Comics. He is the creator of Hawkman and Hawkgirl, as well as the Flash, Doctor Fate, Zatanna, and Sandman. He also created the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, and then the Justice League of America two decades later. Amazingly, there has never been an official biography or book about one of the greatest writers in Comic book history, but we finally have one.
Being a Hawkman and Justice League fan, I was looking forward to reading the first biography of Gardner Fox, the man who created so many iconic heroes and superhero teams. As I read the book, it became clear that the history of Gardner Fox is the history of comics. Jennifer has gathered all the information available on Gardner Fox (no small feat!) and put it into an easy-to-follow course on not only the father of the Justice League but also on the history of comics itself. If you are a fan of comic books, this is one book you will want to read! Amazon Link
