    Hands down my favorite solo series launch since the first wave of Rebirth titles, Hawkman is busy crafting what appears to be a tale of epic proportions. Epic in the classical sense. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Andrew Huard Jul 18, 2018

    The creative team of Venditti, Hitch, and Sinclair have delivered another delightful issue in what will hopefully be a long-running series. The possibilities for storytelling with the character of Carter Hall have been pushed wide open with the new idea that his past lives now stretch across time and space. The DC Universe is ripe with fantastic alien worlds that would make a great setting for a Hawkman adventure. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tanveer Kalo Jul 11, 2018

    Robert Venditti and Bryan Hitch continue to make me want to get my hands on the next issues of this incredible series. Venditti provides us with a Hawkman that is full of potential, depth and has a compelling story arc. Hitch's art helps bring all of these aspects to life in this comic. I can't wait where they take Hawkman next for us. Read Full Review

    Hawkworld - Tim Board Jul 12, 2018

    This series is fun! Hawkman has always been a character with so much potential and we have a writer is not afraid to do what he wants with the character. Everything about Hawkman has been put on the table; his origins, his background, his powers, his costume, Hawkgirl, etc. Venditti isn't going to reveal everything all at once about Hawkman. It's coming one piece at a time and it's going to be a blast. The flight continues! Read Full Review

    HAWKMAN #2 is a fantastic issue. The artwork by Bryan Hitch is absolutely breathtaking. His visuals capture the beauty of flight and the intricate details of Hall's past lifetimes. Carter Hall's determination to uncover the truth behind his reincarnations makes him such a captivating character. HAWKMAN #2 is definitely a must-read, especially if you're already a Hawkman fan.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jul 11, 2018

    Hawkman seems primed to be a fast riser for DC in the back half of 2018. It's got the right creative team and a very fresh approach to bring this character back to the same type of glory his peers enjoyed at the start of DC Rebirth. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure where they're going with this (which is a good thing), but it promises to make sense of the hash that Hawkman's history hasbecome - so I'm all for it! Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Andrew Bistak Jul 11, 2018

    Wow… writer Robert Vendetti successfully puts a clever twist on Hawkman lore, particularly with all his past lives and how it transcends both time and space. Sure, we don't have any answers but the story, dialogue and characterisation is enjoyable from start to finish, especially with the larger than life art from Bryan Hitch. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 11, 2018

    I'm more fascinated by Hawkman's story than I have been in a long time, and this is looking like a worthy successor to Venditti's extended Green Lantern run. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 25, 2019

    Venditti is tapping into something pretty solid here that has me really curious to see how far he's able to go with it, especially with Bryan Hitch as his artist. Between that and the solid color design we get something that looks great and reads well here in trying to break apart a mystery and understand the truth of what's going on. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Jul 11, 2018

    As readers are ushered deeper into Carter Hall's labyrinthine past, it becomes obvious that things aren't as they appear and that there are darker secrets waiting to be uncovered. This issue gets off to a slow but promising start where Venditti manages to set the tone of the issue and prepare readers for the mysterious time-and-space-spanning adventure that awaits.

    Hawkman #2 takes us deeper into the mystery of Hawkman's many incarnations. We may walk away with a few more questions than answers, but this is a story where you have to be willing to accept that these questions will get you from one issue into the next no matter how long they take to answer.

    Silent KnightsHawkman #2 build beautifully on the first issue and continues to draw you in to the mysteries of Carter Hall's past. The pitch perfect art matches the tone of the story. A little house cleaning and the book is well on it's way. A solid add to any pull list and a great read for kids who are into ancient history.  Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joshua Hilgenberg Jul 16, 2018

    Hawkman #2 is a solid issue, and totally exciting for anyone who's missed seeing Carter Hall around, whether that be in the old comics, recent ones, or animated cartoons. It's a fun story along with top notch art. If continuity scares you, but you like the character, give this a shot. Likely, you'll have too much fun to be concerned about the historical nuance and find yourself happily lost along with an old friend. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jul 11, 2018

    Venditti plays it a little too safe overall writing this book. I wish he had more guts and just went crazy with the ideas. Still, it's an easily read book that passed the time enjoyably enough. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 11, 2018

    The art remains strong in this series and the story continues to intrigue.......... and while I have a few nitpicks here and there, this is a series that I will totally be looking forward to each month because it seems that the main focuses of what we got...... (you know, besides for trying to fix the convoluted nature of Hawkman)....... is adventure and fun. Read Full Review
