    One of the strongest Convergence mini-series to date, Hawkman captures the spirit of these characters so perfectly, and gives us a goodbye that no one with a heart could deny is moving. Thank you, gentlemen, for treating these heroes with such care and for having the determination to honor their history. It made for a perfect read and a book Im going to treasure for a long time to come. Read Full Review

    What do you do in the face of certain death? That is the question posed of Katar Hol and his beloved Shayera at the end of Convergence: Hawkman #1. The Thanagarians who have infiltrated Gotham, and the rest of pre-Crisis Earth, reveal to the trapped heroes what their alien calculation machine, a device powered by living minds, has shown – that Earth 1 and its entire history is doomed as the timeline rests under the shadow of the approaching Crisis that will collapse the multiverse and rewrite all known reality. It is said that extreme circumstances reveal true character, bringing out both the best and worst in humanity. Whether that is true of humans or not, Katar and Shayera prove it is certainly the fact with regard to their race. As Hawkman opines, the end is always looming over everyone regardless, and one can only live in hope. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 23, 2015

    The story really picks up for me here and that's possibly because we've got all the setup out of the way and don't have to force concepts like the absorbascon down people's throats........ Sorry, if you're a fan of it, that's a little too weird science-y even for me, but this comic does a damn fine job in turning this title around and I couldn't be happier to see the hawks flying here and I don't know if it's because I just enjoyed this story better than the first issue, but I even ended up enjoying the art more than in the previous issue.

    "Convergence: Hawkman" #2 was a fun wrap up to this tie-in, and one of the most successful "Convergence" miniseries to date. I know it's too much to ask for a future Parker, Truman and Alcatena "Hawkman" series, but boy would it be great if this is anything to go on. If there's room for even a "Hawkman" miniseries down the line, DC Comics already has a great creative team assembled for it. Read Full Review
