Haha, time for some Hawkman.
Just going to post a few Golden Age Hawk stories from good ol' Flash comics.
Because that's how I roll.
First up, the thrilling origin of course.
I really like that second panel for some reason
This particular Hawk helmet is just weird
Shiera is what we'd call a firecracker, if you'd pardon my candor
In this story Hawkman uses a shield and chokes a guy out
Wherein Shiera tries to solve a mystery but Hawkman keeps accidentally knocking her out by throwing bad guys around
This particular era of comics had a certain charm to the art.
Mostly posting Shiera/Carter team ups, though it took a while before she stopped getting knocked out.
It was the style at the time you see. Someone always had to get knocked out.
Just like in the Smallville show. I appreciate it more knowing it was both writer convenience and classic comic convention.
First time Shiera put on the suit I believe
Hawkman learned the language of the birds after he got shot out of the sky, hit his head, suffered from exposure and began talking to them.
In this tale Hawkgirl gets into the swing of things, and raises her blunt weapon skill
Ready yourself for the TIMETABLE OF CRIME
Window owl is watching you makeout
A tale of fishing and murder most fowl
Perhaps not the most chilling tale, but I know you're all loving this
Classic Hawkman villain story. The Cloak of Cagliostro
The Ghost would face the Hawks several times, generally trolling them with his whole a ghost pretending to be Mysterio pretending to be a ghost thing just for laughs.
And though he was an enemy to Carter and Shiera, he would end up being an erstwhile ally and dear friend to Katar and Shayera.
This story to show the change in masks that happened later in their career. Terrible in my opinion.
Now a random page or so just because
The artist is familiar but I can't place it
Axe vs Tommy Gun
Bonus story: First appearance of Vandal Savage from Green Lantern
The oath. One of many.
Though for Alan I prefer,
And I shall shed my light over dark evil, for the dark things fear the light. The light of the Green Lantern.
Many many thanks OP.
I love reading golden age stuff in general.
I also would suggest / request for future story-times some silver age Bat-Woman, Ace the Bat-hound, and Kandor/Krypton centric stories.
I'll keep it in mind. But I'm more about the gorillas.
Those and others. My favourite obscure character is Yango the Super Ape
That's it for me. Thanks for reading, thanks for bumping.
Feel free to fill the thread with whatever
