This issue, it's a story from the pages of Hawkman's journals! Travel back in time to when Carter Hall was reincarnated as a soldier in a cosmic army, while his people were at war! But what happens when a being known for constant reincarnation ends up coming back to life as his own enemy, fighting for the other side? Does it make him a more sympathetic warrior, or give him the weapons to better destroy his enemy?

    Quite frankly, this issue is just what the doctor ordered after wrapping up two elaborately dense story arcs. Read Full Review

    Even though we never saw Hawkman fly in this issue, this is truly a book that lets us soar, even if it's just for a few minutes a day. I hope everybody gets to experience that uplifting feeling when reading Hawkman. Read Full Review

    For readers disappointed in character treatment in books like Heroes in Crisis, Hawkman is a welcome relief with an appreciated sense of respect for the title character and his legacy. Venditti teases another important character we haven't seen interact with Carter Hall yet. That character isn't necessary yet, but it's nice to know they're on Venditti's radar just like this book should be for DC fans. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Andrew Huard Jun 22, 2019

    Issue thirteen is an important issue, as its the beginning of a new story arc. It gives Carter some much-needed rest, but still delivers the violence of his past with the introduction of yet more past lives. The creative team needs to be careful, however, as they just finished a big story arc with many enchanting past lives. They could easily find themselves with a stale story if they dont focus more on Carter alone and his archaeology/treasure hunting rather than the countless past lives. Read Full Review

    This is a perfect place to jump onto the series. If you've heard great things but have been on the fence or hesitant to jump on in the middle of an arc, this is the most opportune moment to acquaint yourself with the character. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jun 12, 2019

    Every book deserves that one solid story that has a beginning and end for the issue. Hawkman #13 didn't give us the room to forget why this book differs from others on shelves. If you are looking for a book that genuinely creates immersion through exploration and discovery, Hawkman is that book for you. Read Full Review

    While this issue is enjoyable, I wonder why Carter still can't remember his past selves after what we got last issue, but besides that, this is fun and looks great.  I just wish it was a little more original and didn't make me think of so many stories just like this.   Read Full Review
