GUEST-STARRING SUPERGIRL AND STEEL! Hawkgirl and Galaxy were looking forward to taking a break from super-heroics for an afternoon. Vulpecula isn't about to let that happen, and promptly puts the entire city of Metropolis in danger! Steel and Supergirl are on hand to join the fight, but can our high-flying heroines handle...a gigantic, fire-breathing dragon?!

    This series is doing some impressive stuff with its treatment of the mental health of superheroes, allowing them to actually express the burdens their heroics put on them. With all that, it's no surprise Vulpecula's claws are in deep. Read Full Review

    Making it past the halfway mark of the limited series means I'm in tor the full run but each issue just makes it more frustrating as it goes along. I haven't been able to connect with Galaxy at all as her story is almost like it's bolted onto Kendra's and Kendra's story hasn't had any real progress at all since the first issue. It's just a bit of a mess of things going on. This one manages to stand out with some good dialogue, great artwork, and guest appearances that helps a lot, but it also highlights the problematic areas even more because of how Vulpecula figures into the story with the two leads that just took me right out of it all.

    The way this issue started out, I was concerned Hawkgirl was going to be a bystander in her own comic. Read Full Review

    This was one last chance to get me interested in reading more about this character and more of this story. But this Kendra isn't the sort of character that I like. So, overall this issue had inscrutable plot without a recap, people ogling Supergirl, Supergirl being taken out extremely easy, and a broken main character. Decent art though. Read Full Review

    This comic is why you hire for merit and not superficial attributes.

    Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.

    I truly believed that this series would improve based off of last issue, which wasn’t that great, but it was decent. This issue is an embarrassment to the Hawk name and solidified my opinion on this series being a self insert wankfest using the Hawkgirl title to deceive fans of the Hawks.

    The dragon fight with the heroes is random to the plot, and it poorly utilizes the books guest stars Supergirl and Steel. Nothing cool or interesting happens with Hawkgirl until GALAXY boosts her up. Galaxy is the cause for 99% of everything in this series, the series needs to be retitled Galaxy: Hawkgirl or Galaxy featuring Hawkgirl. One star for the art, and half a star for more

    If you ever wanted an example of everything wrong with DC Comics, or just comics in general, please see this comic as prime example. This book should be used in courses in comic creation on how NOT to make a comic and how to NOT move a story along. Please stop using legacy characters to prop up your awful OC's.

    Even the art was subpar and kept jumping between OK to what looks like a traced photos.

    This comic was so bad, I almost needed to medicate to finish. The last time Hawkgirl had a solo series was way back in 2006 and it'll probably be 2039 before she gets another one after this trash fire ends.
