    Hawkman is a truly ambitious and extraordinary book unlike another. Venditti and Hitch continue to do definitive work and not since Tim Truman has the character been this exciting. Read Full Review

    Hawkworld - Tim Board Dec 12, 2018

    Hawkman has been defined in several ways. He is about flight, exploration, discovery, and reincarnation. I have always thought that his story is about order. Here is a hero who desperately wants to find the answers to his life and get his life, his existence, and his soul back in order. And we now have a new definition of Hawkman; redemption. With this new origin and meaning, Hawkman is soaring higher than he ever has before. Read Full Review

    Venditti has now created even more purpose to each and every reincarnation of Carter Hall. But with purpose, does Carter now continue his journey to finally end his curse of stall in order to live forever? Carter has lived many lives but is the debt close to being paid? It's hard to imagine that there will be a time when Hawkman is no more. I'm sure Venditti will write some epic loop hole for Carter to help him maintain the power of reincarnation, but only time will tell. And according to Carter's ship, next stop is one I'm looking forward to very much. Krypton. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Cameron Tevis Dec 13, 2018

    I cant recommend this title enough to readers new or old. Venditti has given new readers a great hopping on point but at the same time given something old readers will love. This Hawkman series has been the kind of book that made me fall in love with reading comic books for in the first place. Read Full Review

    HAWKMAN #7 is an amazing comic. The visuals are captivating and dark, perfectly capturing the Deathrbringer's devastation and Hawkman's internal strife. Also, Hawkman's past unravels in this revamped storyline for HAWKMAN #7. By far, a must read! Read Full Review

    Robert Venditti seems to have found the DC character he's meant to write, as his run on Hawkman has far outstripped any of his other comic book work in quality. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Dec 12, 2018

    It is not explicitly told to us where Ktar Deathbringer came from, but his moment of enlightenment in Hawkman #7 leads into the story of resurrection that has since become the backbone of Hawkman's existence. He has lifetimes of redemption to slog through, which we've started to see (well, we've been seeing it for a while) and will certainly shade the proceedings of the series going forward. Venditti does a great job of choosing his battles to fight and the threads of history to investigate, giving readers a wonderful adventure to follow along the way. We're there from the beginning of the reincarnation cycle and we have an idea of why. That makes Hawkman #7 critical turning point in this volume of Hawkman and perhaps even a Rosetta Stone of sorts for the character throughout his almost-eighty years of published existence.

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S Lodi Dec 14, 2018

    Courageous. Beautiful. Honest. "Hawkman" #7 is what other origin and revelation stories aspire to be. By trusting and believing on its core characters, it allows them to fly further. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 12, 2018

    The origin story that Hawkman #7 gave us was worth the wait. Hawkman has been a lot of things, but this revelation changes everything that Carter Hall thought he knew about himself and his past lives. Read Full Review

    While it might not have advanced the main story too much, this was a compelling issue that further developed Hawkman's past as it begins to shape his future. Read Full Review

    Yes, Im being really vague here but thats because I dont want to spoil the great story. This is the retcon to end all retcons for a character's origin, but one which definitely makes sense as part of the story thats being told here. And with these revelations out of the way, its time to battle The Deathbringers, and that means going to a place up in the sky, not with a bird or a plane… but well get there soon enough.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 12, 2018

    While I love that this issue of Hawkman loses the formula that it's been using since the beginning and the fact that we're getting new information about the origins of Hawkman that will tie into what we're currently dealing with, this issue feels a little off in that it just throws us into a situation that comes off odd and without any kind of background.  The art is decent and I can't wait to see where these new revelations will take Carter Hall.

    This issue's plot seems as if it could have been resolved in a handful of pages rather than dragging it out over an entire issue. Read Full Review
