There’s no stopping the Lord Beyond the Void when he needs to feed, and he’s set his sights on a new buffet: our universe! It’ll take more than a fight for our heroes to bring their enemy to his knees…it’ll take their very lives! That’s right-in this issue, Hawkman and Hawkwoman will die!

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 12, 2020

    I have to say that I'm satisfied with how this story came to a close with the conclusion to Hawkman #26. This is what it looks like when you weave a story together that acknowledges everything you love about the characters involved. I walked away from this story with a greater appreciation for Hawkman and Hawkwoman than I ever had before. I even walked away from this story knowing much more about them than I ever did before. That is the greatest gift for any reader to experience from this. Aside from this, still happy as well that there is more to come beyond this issue. It's a brave new world for these heroes.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 11, 2020

    Just when it seems like they're out of surprises, Venditti and Pasarin roll out a huge one that hopefully has some major repercussions for the rest of the DC Universe. Hawkman has been one of my favorites for months and this was a prime example of why it constantly flies so high. Read Full Review

    If this were the series finale, it'd be the perfect ending. Read Full Review

    Hawkworld - Tim Board Aug 11, 2020

    Although there was a feeling of finality and a strange sense of melancholy as the issue came to a close, I also felt thankful to all involved for bringing us such a great addition to the legend of Hawkman. As the series continues, Hawkman and Hawkwoman start out on another journey together and who knows where they will go from here. If we've learned anything, it is to expect the unexpected when it comes to Hawkman. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Aug 11, 2020

    Over the past two years, Robert Venditti has been exploring Hawkman's new status quo. Along the way we've learned about all of Hawkman's past lives and how he's reincarnated through time and space. Hawkman #26 wraps up the storyline with the Lord of the Void, but also ties a bow on the first 26 issues as Hawkman and Hawkwoman defeat the Lord of the Void. This issue brings everything together beautifully in a satisfying manner while also setting the Hawks off in the next step of their lives, or is it just earlier in their life? Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 11, 2020

    There have been some great Hawkman runs over the years, but this might be the one where the writer was the most effective at getting me invested in the character's mythology. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Aug 11, 2020

    This book is a treat and deserves broader advertising. DC take note Hawkman is off to begin another story arc, another left turn for the character that is sure to please fans. This series is building up a lovely repertoire of DC lore under the radar. Give this and prior issues a good thumbing through. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 11, 2020

    While I'm sure the majority of people will get everything that they want out of this issue, but for me I was left wanting since everything seemed to be wrapped up quickly, making all the build-up to everything that we've dealt with feel like it didn't matter and the stakes were never really there.  I love the art to this issue though and the cliffhanger is amazing, which makes me want to check out the next issue now.

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 11, 2020

    Hawkman #26 is a very good looking book that could have used more conflict, and more discovery to make the victory and this story arc more rewarding. As a single issue, it's just okay, but as a chapter in the history of Hawkman it's hugely important. Your enjoyment is going to vary depending on how impressed you are with the new direction.
