    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Aug 14, 2019

    Hawkman #15 appears to be a simple hero versus villain tale. But it succeeds at doing what a proper conflict should, yet often fails by showing the villain getting under the hero's skin. The issue reveals what insecurities lie beneath. This elevates not only the story but the capabilities of a villain like Shadow Thief who is typically easily squashed. Now that the scene is set, it's going to be fun watching how Hawkman and Shade get out of their predicament. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Cameron Tevis Aug 24, 2019

    Hawkman has been a title that stands high above anything else currently on the stands. Each issue is a pleasant surprise. This issue is no different. Venditti has managed to make me interested in characters I have previously had little interest in. I actually want to learn more about Shadow-Thief and The Shade as well as see how their stories play out. Venditti has already succeeded in making Hawkman one of my favorite superheroes.

    This is the first arc that doesn't really further the plotline of Carter's past lives, but it hasn't lost a step. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 14, 2019

    Overall, Hawkman #15 gives you a bit more confidence in this new direction taken for Carter Hall. Still a Hawkman story at the core, and one that still presses the issue that realizing his destiny was only step one of deciding his own future. We are here to figure out if he can find meaning to these nightmares, or if they will get the best of him on top of the pressures of his current life. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 14, 2019

    We get a really cool guest star this issue to help our Winged Warrior take down the Shadow Thief, but it seems that our hero may have bit off more than he can chew now that Lex Luthor has powered up the once second rate villain.  The art is decent here and this team-up we get is really interesting and I can't wait to see where it will lead next issue.   Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Antonio Pedro Aug 17, 2019

    I keep saying this about Venditti's books, but this was straight up fun. Cool, epic story without getting bogged down in superhero insanity, an adventurous and pulpy tone, the return of one of my favorite DC characters and serviceable artwork. This book is highly recommended, start keeping up with Hawkman people, it's well worth it. Read Full Review
