    As always, Robert Vendittis Hawkman epic continues to be an underrated masterpiece of storytelling and world building. Fernando Pasarin and the rest of the art team make this book look so effortlessly cool and good while milking each panel for drama and intensity.

    Equal part spacefaring adventure and complex story about identity, this title has taken the Year of the Villain tie-in and used it to deepen the character's own storyarc. If the first year of this series was about Carter reckoning with his own evil past, this arc is about the ever-present threat of relapse. Read Full Review
