When the alien creature known as Morphicius starts draining the life force from Carter Hall, a.k.a. Hawkman, he learns that there's more to his new victim than meets the eye.

With innocent lives in the balance, can Hawkman turn the table on his enemy, or are Morphicius newfound powers too powerful to stop?

    It's a down the middle book. Not bad by any means, but not my favorite. I love the new villains in this issue, and their motives are pretty cool and not the same old "I have to beat the good guy" slant we've dealt with forever. I really liked Philip Tan's art on this book, especially the fire. However, I'm not too interested in Carter's home life, but that's mainly because I am so much more interested in Hawkman and his mythos. Read Full Review

    It remains to be seen if the writing can be massaged and improved. Hawkman wasn't exactly the star of the show in Brightest Day, but that series was definitely preferable to this one so far. Read Full Review

    This second issue has been a major disappointment and the rest of the series could end up the same way unless someone at DC Comics takes some drastic steps to improve the quality of this book quickly. Just look at the first issues of the last HAWKMAN title, when Geoff Johns and Rags Morales reinvigorated the character, turning him into a major figure in the DC line of superheroes. They showed that Hawkman could be a frightening, awe-inspiring character. This latest 'savage' incarnation of the character is just confused and confusing. Read Full Review

    Sadly, it seems as though this title is so quick to distance itself from everything that defines Hawkman that it hasn't figured out how to re-define the character. Between this book and "Hawk & Dove," I've found a couple (so far) major disappointments in this relaunch. Maybe if I wait this out a few months, Hawkman will be knocked off and reincarnated in a title that's more in line with what the character deserves. Read Full Review
