    Not essential reading, but if you're reading Hawkman now, and you've got 5 extra bucks, give this a look. Michael Blair's pin-up of Hawkgirl almost makes it worth it. I just love those abs! Read Full Review

    I normally avoid picking up these "Secret Files" one-shots, as they're overpriced, and most times the material that they offer up is hardly vital, need-to-know information. However, while my decision to break this self-imposed rule is partly due to my desire to support any work done by Geoff Johns, the main reason I gave this book a look was to get more insight into the character Hawkman & the world he inhabits, as before his most recent return, my only exposure to the character was from his time in the Justice League of America. Now this issue doesn't offer much insight into Hawkman, but it does give us a better look at Mister Roderic, who at the moment looks like he's penciled in as Hawkman's primary villain. Mister Roderic doesn't get his best showing in this issue, as he comes across as a bit of a pushover, but I suspect that he'll soon give the Hawks reason to regret he views them as enemies. An interesting character examination, but it's not required reading by any means. Read Full Review
