    So, while The Savage Hawkman doesnt look to be rocking the social commentary or addressing any glaring social injustices anytime soon, it does look to be rocking the awesome themes that make Hawkman/Carter Hall one of the potentially most interesting sci-fi, ancient alien, and historically interesting character next to the Eternal Warrior. Congratulations Mr. Liefeld, youve won back a very disappointed readerfor now. Read Full Review

    This is one of those reviews that I truly wish I could split into an art rating and a story rating. Bennett would receive four stars and the story would get half of one. Hawkman has an underlying concept that works in every incarnation. "Brightest Day," which gave Swamp Thing and Aquaman a direction to move forward into in this new DC Universe, had a great set-up for Hawkman. It truly seems like no one can pull it all together. That said, this is the first issue and Bennett (with Thibert and colorist Jason Wright) has produced some great work. I'll open an extra packet of patience and see how this first arc plays out.
