    This is an amazing issue that will leave you with much more to think about than just Nighthawk. It is truly a work of art, replicating some of the most important issues that we’re dealing with today. The creative team has executed some really heavy concepts in a way that is relatable, entertaining, and insightful. This is probably the best comic I’ve read in a month. I definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone (of age). Trust me, this isn’t one you’ll want to miss. Read Full Review

    Overall, this book may or may not reach the pop culture levels to which I alluded to earlier. Watchmen is appreciated more now that it was at the time of release, so maybe in five years time with some perspective we may appreciate this comic more. Yet, if it manages to make a few people think harder about race relations and police power, then we can still consider this comic a success. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 27, 2016

    Nighthawk is a gritty and violent book that is dealing with race, corruption and a serial killer on the loose.  While that may not sound like a whole lot of fun, I am enjoying what David F. Walker and Ramon Villalobos are cooking.  While Walker is still setting up the characters and the lay of the land, I am intrigued by the multiple mysteries and where everything is headed.  Nighthawk may not be the hero that Chicago wants, but it sure looks like he's the one they need.

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jun 23, 2016

    Nighthawk#2 continues to weld together a bloody thriller with relevant political commentary and the realities of being black in the United States with a protagonist's whose actions are unethical to say the least. David Walker uses supporting characters to remark on this fact instead of just focusing on the violence, and Ramon Villalobos and Tamra Bonvillain turn the Marvel Universe's Chicago into a kind of hell on Earth without falling headlong into overexaggeration.

    This series needed something unique to prevent it from coming across as "Marvel's Batman," and it seems to have found that by emphasizing the racial element of Raymond Kane's vigilante crusade. Read Full Review

    Surprise hit of the year. This issue packs a mean punch just like the first one. As the plot builds Im anxious to see what course Nighthawk takes. 2 vigilantes .. Same city.. Something gotta give. The racial overtones may not sit well with some readers but the realness of the comic do far is socially relevant. Im not scared to say that it is more culturally relevant than Black Panther. So far after 2 issues.. I give the nod to Nighthawk!

    Not much happens but its very relevant to today, the racial tension and on going internal conflict. Nighthawk really needs something that can distinct it from Batman comics because they really haven't. Tho i am very excited with the character of the revelator
