    With zero disrespect to the legends who came before him, Venditti's Hawkman run is one of the best comic book runs featuring Carter Hall and his supporting cast ever printed"it's certainly a favorite with this critic. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Sep 8, 2020

    Hawkman #27 was such a refreshing issue, new yet nostalgic. It's worth your time and money to get this one, to go back and get back issues or the trades. This is an exercise in character growth and forward momentum other comics need to be and companies need to allow more instead of slew after slew of retcons and history erasures. Hawkman has been a must-read title since the first issue and too many slept on it. It's not too late to wake up and appreciate this series that blazes new trails while respecting what came before.

    Hawkworld - Tim Board Sep 8, 2020

    Hawkman is having to deal with the reality of death, and we are having to deal with the reality of a great comic book series ending. But Venditti's Hawkman is not about death, but about life and soaring above it all. It will be interesting to see how Venditti brings this series to a close. I'm pretty sure we will be soaring in the end, and I'm looking forward to it. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Sep 8, 2020

    Hawkman #27 is a must buy issue for fans of the Justice Society of America. You won't be disappointed. Hopefully, this is the introduction of the JSA for a new ongoing series by Robert Venditti. It would be especially wonderful if it took place in the '40's. Perhaps, there is a place for a new World War II era continuity. It's hard to let the original go due to the work put in by Roy Thomas in the '80's on All-Star Squadron, but if anyone can do it, I trust Venditti. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Sep 8, 2020

    Hawkman #27 succeeds as the beginning of a new chapter in Hawkman and Hawkwomans old life. Catering to fans new and old, this story pulls threads from older comics while also sowing seeds for another epic in the making now that theres a real sense of tension in the Hawks life. Robert Venditti and his team continue to make this one of the best written comics that DC is currently publishing and one of the best drawn as well. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 8, 2020

    Not only has this been a compelling Hawkman story, but it's been straightforward enough that I think it's the perfect way to get newbies into the character. Wherever Venditti is headed next, I hope he gets to play with the mythology as much as he did here. Read Full Review

    Fernando Pasarin delivers some great visuals throughout the issue. The art has an awesome contrast between the highly detailed and vibrant fight sequences and the eerie, shadowed figure working behind the scenes and against Hawkman. A great looking issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 8, 2020

    With amazing art depicting our heroes side by side with the JSA taking on the Injustice Society this issue just screams fun, while also foreshadowing some complications coming for Hawkman and Hawkwoman as they continue their lives in the past. I like a lot of what we got here, even if it just a random fight between super heroes and super villains, but the cliffhanger leaves me curious about what could be coming for this series before it ends.
