  • Awful!This is one of the worst titles I've read in the New 52 line-up, and I'm not even that picky!How do I even describe it? Well, the word boring comes to mind. So does the word idiotic. The dialogue was so amateur and stupid that I would love to put them in this review as evidence, but that would require me thumbing through the pages again. I Won't Do It! I wasted the entire day trying to force myself to just finish the thing. I finally got through with it, too. And I'm not going back, baby! [...]


  • This really is bad. Worse than just being poorly written, it's boring, too. You just can't start a book with the main character torching his famous costume without explaining why he's torching his famous costume. So he hates being Hawkman, but why? I never was able to figure it out. I'd bet good money that Daniel never bothered to figure it out. He just needed a way to give his main character an upgrade. Now the Nth Metal is fused with Hawkman's body! Yay? I don't care, and I don't see why I sho [...]


  • I was watching paint dry with an intensity the activity doesn’t usually warrant when a thought struck me that someone seeing this might think me odd - that is unless you informed them it was this or read “Savage Hawkman, Vol 1: Darkness Rising”. “So put it aside, pick up something else!” would be the reasonable response to this situation. That I would normally do but a few weeks ago I made the bad decision of purchasing a shed-load of New 52 titles and, because money has changed hands, [...]


  • The Savage Hawkman left me savagely mumbling "meh". Carter Hall wants to be free of the Nth Metal. But that's not going to happen. Instead the armor bonds to Carter and can now appear when needed. That's cool, since there are several bad guys/alien things that want to get a hold of the Nth metal. So they try to do so throughout this volume. They fail. So there will be a volume 2 and I don't know if that's a positive thing or not. Nothing about this story (art or plot) is terrible. Nothing about [...]


  • Not bad. The first half wasn't very exciting. Hawkman gets his nth metal power and a bad guy is after him because he wants to suck up his energy. We are back to the original Hawkman here too, the human cryptologist, not the alien police enforcer who I've been most familiar with in my reading as a youngster. Anyway, once the first story was over, we suddenly had zombies appear and my interest piqued. Finding the second half of the book much more interesting story wise plus we got to know Carter m [...]



  • 2.5 stars. Previously I've been a fan of Hawkman but this New 52 reboot is a disappointment.Some of the artwork is decent. I like Hawkman's look -- his armor and wings -- and overall I thought he looked really menacing. But as for the artwork for the other characters (and even for Carter Hall when he's not in Hawkman form), the facial features weren't sharp and defined enough for my tastes.At the very start Carter Hall has the Hawkman armor and is trying to destroy it. While I don't always mind [...]


  • This book is a good example of the problem I have with the New 52 event. In Brightest Day, DC took several characters (including Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Martian Manhunter, Deadman, Hawk and Dove, and Green Arrow) and really gave them a new direction. The events surrounding Brightest Day caused these characters to reevaluate their lives and they came away with a new re-dedication to their various causes; it looked like we were in for some really good stories in the titles that dealt with these charact [...]


  • You know, I really like old Carter Hall. I just find it kind of funny that in the DC Multiverse, a cryptologist such as Carter is the staunch conservative (although his personal politics were not explored in this trade) and the billionaire industrialists like Bruce Wayne and Oliver Queen are the altruistic souls trying to make a difference. Who do we get in our own reality? The nefarious Koch brothers. Yikes. No wonder I read comics! So anyway, this trade.had some potential, had some good moment [...]


  • Another example of a New 52 book that had potential that was wasted. The initial set-up and plot were intriguing but then the book never explores those elements. We never learn the background of the character, his powers, his personality - nothing. Time after time characters would know something needed for the story with no explanations given for how they know it. The art wasn't good either, with indistinct faces and muddy coloring. The new costume design was good but poorly explained and utiliz [...]


  • Maybe it is because I know less about Hawkman, but I found these stories not too bad. I wish Morphicius had been a little more badass and I wish that the gentlemen ghost saga had been fleshed out a bit more, but overall it was decent. I also enjoyed the art, which brought out the Savage part of the title much more than the writing. I might consider reading more if it had not been taken over for the next arc by Rob Liefeld. Ah well.


  • What sets Hawkman apart as a hero isn't his powers (which are run-of-the-mill) nor his personality (macho, politically conservative) or even his weaponry (a flair for the medieval.) It's his ardor and taste for battle. Daniel admirably keeps our hero in a warlike mindset even when not wearing the mask and wings.


  • The first part is pretty slow and not that memorable. When the Hawkman has to go up against ghosts and the dead it does get really good. This title has a lot of potential if it carries on having great stories like that one. A good read.


  • Absolutely worst comic I've read in ages . . . and I like Hawkman. The only thing cool about the book at all was the updated look of our savage main character; everything else was annoying and immediately forgettable.


  • This book series is not starting off very well, but it shows the potential of picking up in later installments.


  • The Morphicus stuff at the beginning is pretty "meh", but it gets much more interesting once the Gentleman Ghost shows up in the 3rd or 4th issue.


  • This is the 50th New 52 wave 1 series that I've started on. All-star Western & Justice League International are the only ones left from that original company wide reboot lineup that I've yet to start on. I know many people were down on the New 52 as a whole, but I've enjoyed over half of what I've read. There have been a handful of great reads, a few really good ones, some decent ones, and several that were downright horrendous. This book is closer to the latter. Tony S. Daniel is an amazing [...]


  • Of all the DC super heroes who could have benefited from the New 52 reboot in 2011, Hawkman was at the top of the list of those most in need. The character has been through so many incarnations, so many different origins and powers and designs and histories and monthly titles, it’s really sort of embarrassing at this point. So I was curious to see what incarnation of the famed hero would make his debut in The New 52 title, THE SAVAGE HAWKMAN.Unfortunately, I was less than impressed.The first s [...]




  • I was not expecting this to be the volume that put my plans to review all the first volumes in the New 52 on hold for months. While it definitely isn't good, it is almost a bigger problem that it isn't terrible. It is just completely forgettable. I read Catwoman and Mr. Terrific in one sitting, because they were such train-wrecks. With the Savage Hawkman, I would end up putting it down and having to start from the beginning, because I had completely forgotten what had already happened in the sto [...]


  • I've always been a huge fan of Hawkman in the Justice League comics and cartoon shows growing up, but I have never read any of his solo comics. The lore seemed dense and entry points were hard and felt disconnected from most of the DCU *caughBatmancaugh* I was familiar with at that point. DC's New 52 reboot-ish event felt like the perfect point of entry to one of my perpetual 2nd favorite heroes. I was sad to find out that Hawkman's world in Savage Hawkman isn't very rebooted at all. Not much ba [...]


  • This is another one of those books that reminds me how much Shelfari needs to rethink it's "star rating system"This book was average. Some elements I didn't like, but others I did and they redeem this book. If I could, I'd give it 2,5 stars, but since I can't, I'll go with 3 stars.I was looking forward to reading this, since I only know Hawkman from passing cameo apperances in other DC titles. So I wanted to know a bit more about the character. Unfortunately, this title left me even more confuse [...]


  • After reading the “Before the New 52” Issue, regarding the backstory of Hawkman:On an alien planet, blah blah blah. There is a wise and just king, blah blah blah. He has a son who likes violence, blah blah blah. He has another son who likes peace, blah blah blah. Gee, I wonder who the hero and who the villain will be? Father dies? Check. Evil brother is evil? Check. Peaceful brother is good? Check. Booooooring. It's so cliché. Why do these good superhero outcasts all end up on Earth anyway? [...]


  • Hawkman wirkt auf den ersten Blick immer etwas ruppig und wortkarg. Dieser Comic lebt daher von Carter Halls/Hawkmans Gedanken, die durch die Geschichten leiten und eine Seite von ihm zeigen, die man sonst nie zu Gesicht bekommen würde. Es ist interessant mitzuverfolgen wie Carter auf der Suche nach dem Geheimnis seiner Rüstung, seiner Bestimmung, ist -- und vor allem, dass er selbst noch im Dunkeln tappt.Zudem schreit dieser Comic förmlich Marvel. Ich musste anfangs direkt an Hulk denken (Ma [...]


  • I've always liked the character of Hawkman. He had a cool costume, cool powers, cool weapons, and despite a backstory that's the second most complicated in the DCU (after Donna Troy), he's a pretty interesting character. This first trade of the New 52 relaunch doesn't use any of that. It is, in a word, awful. The re-drawn costume is terrible - why does every character in the New 52 need armor? Why make the Nth metal part of Hawkman himself, and use that instead of the cool weaponry he used to us [...]


  • There's a fundamental issue with this series - the idea that archaeologist and scholar Carter Hall turns into the brash, hit-first, ask-questions-never Hawkman, makes no sense. Hawkman is known for being brawn without brains, so burying him behind a supposed scholar strains credulity. And that's not the only thing that is bothersome. The dialog is painfully bad. The artwork is weirdly non-descript; Emma never really seems developed; the villains are unmemorable, or badly portrayed (Gentleman gho [...]


  • I had no expectations for this title and figured it wouldn't be very good because come on's Hawkman. But jut like Aquaman, they've given a previously "light" character a makeover. Granted, I don't know what Hawkman was before the New 52--and I definitely could have used a clue, considering all the talk about so much death--but I liked him a lot. I got the impression they were revising his origin story just a little, but again, hard to say without being a previous fan. Also wondering when Hawkwom [...]


  • Mmmmmma little dull, to be honest, but it shows promise - it feels to me as if the writers want to let rip but just aren't able to for some reason. I have to admit, I know nothing about the original (other than an impression of the hero as scary and interesting, courtesy of the one JLA comic I owned as a child), so have come to this fresh and without expectations. I think the "savage" aspect could emerge a little more, perhaps the hero is a little opaque at the moment but his core of anger (or w [...]


  • Every box of used trade paperbacks at #C2E2 had a copy of this so I expected that there isn't a lot of love for this book. Its really not that bad. I liked the art. I like that there is more background than just a heavy the Justice League calls in when the are desperate. I am a little confused as this guy seems entirely human with alien tech where as the Hawkman in the Justice League titles claims to be an alien. The story is pretty much one long fight with the Hero occasionally touching base wi [...]
