What was once a gift now becomes a curse! With the reincarnation cycle finally broken, Hawkman finds himself fearful that every fight could be his last-and Hawkwoman’s patience for his caution wears thin. But they’ll need all their wits and courage about them, because their age-old enemy Hath-Set is out for blood!

    Hawkman has been too good to miss and this was another exceptional issue. Theres just one more to go, but its reinvigorated the character that will hopefully lead to a higher profile in the DCU. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Oct 13, 2020

    This issue is brilliant from start to finish. As depressing as it is to wait for what will be the final issue in this character-defining series, it is also going to be hard to wait around for how the end to the battle against Hath-Set plays out, and what the future holds for DC's Winged Warriors.

    You didn't think think this last arc would go out with a whimper did you? Venditti and Company make Hawkman #28 an exciting lead in to the finale with beautiful art and a great character driven story that takes the character back to his origins in Flash Comics #1. It serves as not only a statement on Hawkman's history, but also his connection to Shiera/Shayera. Even if you haven't read any of the previous 27 issues, Hawkman #28 will make you a believer!

    Hawkworld - Tim Board Oct 13, 2020

    This was a difficult issue to process for me. When you know a series is ending, there's an ominous feeling that's hard to shake. And with characters like Hawkman and Hawkwoman, there are no guarantees that they will back in the comics soon, so you have to prepare for a long goodbye. I wouldn't have these feelings if the writing had been bad. Venditti has written a character who is not only a superhero but also a man named Carter Hall under the helmet. I'm going to miss this character. Read Full Review

    This Hawkman run roars to his conclusion and as you might expect from this team, the penultimate issue is as good as they come. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 13, 2020

    While the art in this book is great and I love the era that our hero currently lives in, the callbacks to the Golden Age Hawkman in this issue are pretty random and not explained to the point that it feels like if people aren't familiar with comics from 80 years ago, they might not pick up on things happening in this issue. Callbacks aside though, this isn't a great issue. The setup is so random and doesn't make much sense overall, even if I'm a fan of the overall story, exploring what Hawkman does when he only has one life left to live. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Oct 13, 2020

    HAWKMAN #28 struggles to find its footing. It wants to be an homage but is suffers from the angst of a modern comic. Much of the modern tone drains the comic of the fun of an homage. Read Full Review
