    As a fan of the direction Liefeld has taken the character, I didnt like this issue, mostly because it went the completely opposite direction. That drastic shift caused me to lose interest in this story. There was little action, Carter Hall was nowhere to be found, and the Thanagarians were pretty underwhelming. Joe Bennetts art may justify the price tag for some readers, its just damn good. Itll be interesting to see what happens next month, as Savage Hawkman returns to Earth, and Carter Hall. I believe that the next arc is still Liefelds plot, but dont quote me on that. Doesnt matter to me, Ill be there to read it either way. Read Full Review

    As much as I miss the reincarnation aspect of the Hawkman mythology, that was always a patch for a badly convoluted character. It's nice to have a more straightforward history for Hawkman that still pays homage to some of his better stories. With Liefeld shuffling out of the DC offices, I'm hopeful the new creative team will be able to make the most of the foundation laid in this issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 2, 2012

    The art is very impressive this month, with Joe Bennett clearly going nuts in his depiction of Thanagar as a combination of medieval and futuristic elements, and Corsar as a winged-and-armored knight in his father's service makes for a really awesome series of panels. For all the talk about the relative merits of Rob Liefeld as an artist or writer, this issue is pretty good, and features some really fascinating insights into the mind of Hawkman and the society that formed him. Savage Hawkman #0 combines a lot of familiar elements into a framework that actually make me wonder if I shouldn't be reading the adventures of Hawkman every month, earning a quite-impressive 3 out of 5 stars overall. I'm going to have to check out #13 to see how this all plays out, and to verify whether this sort of quality will continue, but as a single issue reading experience, this one is good.

    I want nothing more than to be able to give "Savage Hawkman" #0 a five-star rating, but this simply isn't a good Hawkman comic on any level. If DC can find the formula to make "Aquaman" a quality and commercially viable comic, why can't the publisher apply the same equation to discover Thanagarian success? Maybe after the flaming exodus of Rob Liefeld, DC will be able to find the talent able to resurrect Hawkman from the ashes of mediocrity. Until then, if you'd rather spend three dollars on a huge pile of indifference, feel free to check this book out. If you're more shrewd with your money, there are plenty of other charities out there.
