    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Feb 13, 2020

    From my perspective, this is yet another fantastic issue! When I was first discovering DC back issues from the '60's three of my favorite characters were Adam Strange, the Atom and Hawkman. This issue for that alone gets my highest praise! Along the way there are numerous elements that make this a great comic. By putting character at the forefront, Hawkman #21 is an exciting and fun read that demonstrates a palpable bond between Hawkman, the Atom, Adam Strange and Hawkwoman. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Feb 12, 2020

    Hawkman #21 represents a great fight issue but also a fun Indian Jones-style artifact chase. Seeing the two sides of the tale come together is exciting, as is having the Atom and Adam Strange back in action. Another triumphal issue for this creative team. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Feb 20, 2020

    This issue of Hawkman continues the ascension of Robert Vendittis epic, continuing to be one of the still underrated stories that DC is releasing today. Fernando Pasarin and the rest of the art team blew my mind with their visuals, making this thing such a beauty to read and see. Hawkman is easily one of the highlights to come out of Dark Nights: Metal and this book continues to carry on the nearly 80 Year Legacy of the character with amazing storytelling and art.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 12, 2020

    While I think the addition of our new heroes really works well this issue, the overall Sky Tyrant parts left me wanting more because beyond his big plan of destroying all life in the Universe, there hasn't been a lot for this infected version of our hero to do and I would love to see this story end soon.  The art is great though and we do get a full explanation about what's going on in Sky Tyrant's head here, which was really appreciated.

    AIPT - Arbaz M. Khan Feb 12, 2020

    Despite a lack of depth within this issue, Venditti gives some fantastic visual cues for this comic book. There are fun colors and images that make this worth the buy, especially for people who have read previous issues. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 26, 2020

    The events of this comic are more than a bit crazy, but its characters fully acknowledge that (which is kinda fun). I haven't given this comic attention in several months so I can't condemn it too much for being batshit-crazy. While I'm not sure exactly what the key evil Hawkman is after will actually unleash, I'm betting it isn't puppies and rainbows. For fans. Read Full Review
