The odds are impossible, but Hawkman and Adam Strange must team up as the fates of Rann, Thanagar and the known universe hangs in the balance. But can anyone - or anything - stop Despero? Don't miss the finale of this red-hot miniseries!

    The series reaches a fulfilling conclusion, but it also leaves a big door open for the story to continue in another book. I certainly hope it does. I always enjoy Marc Andreykos storytelling, and would eagerly follow a continuation of this tale. Read Full Review

    This was a really solid mini with some really good character exploration for the Rebirth universe. Also? That incredible variant cover from the great Bill Sienkiewicz. I mean, I cant help but be stoked by every new bit of artwork he contributes to DC (look at his Deathstroke work for Petes sake), but this cover was drop-dead (PUN INTENDED) gorgeous.

    Our finale to Death of Hawkman comes and sadly, it's more of a bridge to another story apparently....... Yeah, I don't know if we'll ever get that but because of this fact, I didn't get the closure I wanted at the end of this, but I did get one hell of a slug fest between Hawkman and Despero that I wanted and a book that looked good all the way through.

    If this is setting up a stand-alone Adam Strange book, that would be a mistake too. He is a supporting character in every single way. Lets keep him that way. This book was good but not great. If there are some hardcore Hawkman fans out there, this will be pretty upsetting. I am not sure there are so this book does what it supposed to do. Advance a plot in the DC universe at the expense of a hero. Heroes die sometimes and it makes even more sense for a hero to sacrifice himself to save the universe. Read Full Review

    Whatever does happen, I hope DC finally gives Hawkman, Hawkwoman (or Hawkgirl), and their legacy the respect it deserves. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz Mar 4, 2017

    This book reeks of disconnects. As in lack of communication between all the parties involved with making this book and also from the comic fans to DC about expectations for comic events. For a miniseries, this book lacks any real emotional anchor or tremendous art to give it any special feel. Death of Hawkman really was not enjoyable, but also reminds readers of the DC we thought was a way of the past, the era before Rebirth. This series is certainly reminiscent of that time filled with huge events, that were led with no direction or inspiration that only took away from the reputation and credibility of not only the mythos around their own characters, but the creators involved as well. This series was a huge disappointment because we know DC can do better. Read Full Review
