    The flight was far too short with this iteration of Hawkman, but at least readers were treated to an exceptional run from a spectacular creative team. Hopefully it won't be too long before Hawkman is back in a prestigious spotlight from DC. Read Full Review

    While one story does manage to wrap up here, it also does seem to introduce DC's next large event, though only tones and teases are available. Either way, there's little Venditti & Co. could have done to make this a better finale. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Nov 10, 2020

    Who knows when the next title will spring up from the ashes, but readers can, and should, harvest this series to see its fine points and how it rejuvenated not only this character but also the supporting cast. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Nov 10, 2020

    Hawkman #29 is simply beautiful. That's the easiest way to describe it. Venditti not only wraps up his run, but gives the reader a “final look” at the character in much the same way Alan Moore did with Superman in “Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?” While there are always more stories to be told, this last arc gives the Hawks a satisfying ending as Moore's tale does for the Man of Steel. Hawkman will be back some day, but it's hard to imagine it being better than this. Thank you Robert Venditti, Bryan Hitch, Jeromy Cox, Will Conrad, Jeremiah Skipper, Pat Oliff, Richard Starkings, Rob Leigh, Tom Palmer, Fernando Pasarin, Oclair Albert, Wade Von Grawbadger and anyone else I've missed- your work is greatly appreciated! Now where's that 6/5 rating??? Read Full Review

    Hawkworld - Tim Board Nov 11, 2020

    Some comics are made to amaze, some are made to horrify, and some are made to shock. Venditti's Hawkman allowed Hawkfans to soar. It saddens me to see the series end, but for just a while, Venditti gave us wings to fly with the Hawks. I'll never forget that. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall Nov 9, 2020

    Leave it to Mr. Venditti to put one last interesting twist on the Hawks. I also was glad to see another happy couple in the DCU, something that's very rare these days. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Nov 11, 2020

    Hawkman #29 brings the current volume to a close, soaring to heights many thought impossible. It may feel like a premature conclusion in light of the book's sad cancellation, but the closure brought is very real - and will be hard for any future creative team to top. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 10, 2020

    It's the end of the road after a two and a half year run that has revolutionized Hawkman mythology, and after the last issue I was wondering if the final threat wouldn't live up to the rest of the run. I shouldn't have worried, because Robert Venditti has always had a solid grasp on the main thrust of this series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 10, 2020

    While all of Hawkman's mysteries aren't completely cleaned up with this finale issue, we do get some interesting answers here to the past and future of our Winged Warriors and ultimately....... we get a nice ending that allows our Hawks to be in the continuity wherever anyone may want to use them. Yeah, Anton Hastor took a backseat here and was quickly dispatched, but with wonderful art and an emotional connection to our main characters, it was pretty easy to move on and enjoy things despite that.
