    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Sep 29, 2021

    Darkhawk #2 continues its protagonist's superhero journey, adding a heavy dose of emotional weight along the way. I appreciate the work the creative team is doing to make Connor a fully fleshed-out character, and I also appreciate that Higgins is using the "Air Space" column in the back of the book to reach out to real-life people and experts about MS. I can only hope that other writers are willing to put in this level of effort when creating characters. Read Full Review

    This issue is a win across the board, and while the artistic style doesn't land in every single panel for me, it's a small nitpick for an otherwise fantastic issue. If you're a Darkhawk fan, this really is the reinvention you've been waiting for. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Sep 29, 2021

    A very strong issue in this series. Chock full of events that move both the characters and the series forward to where it needs to go. This would be a really bad issue to skip, folks. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alexander Manzo Oct 4, 2021

    Solid issue to check out in this mini-series, but the fight scene was relatively short to help it be established for a book of the week. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 2, 2021

    This second issue doesn't do anything to emphasize why a Darkhawk reboot was in order, but everything from the new characters to the ongoing drama is still fine. Read Full Review

    Dawkhark #2 deals with a real-world drama excellently, but it does so while tending to neglect the superheroics. Read Full Review
