    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Apr 15, 2021

    Darkhawk: Heart of the Hawk #1 is a powerful and memorable issue. It's a true celebration of the character, telling a story that both he and his loyal fans deserve. This is an issue that raised my fading hope, giving me a reason to believe we'll be seeing more of Darkhawk someday. Hopefully soon. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Apr 14, 2021

    There's a great, solemn contemplative tone to this story that is engaging. The art is amazing as well and you get the sense that this is just the beginning rather than the end for the character. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 12, 2021

    This is a good one-shot that celebrates Darkhawk, but also sets up the reader for more to come. Editor Darren Shan has done a great job curating a book that not only honors the past but does so in the anthology format that's usually a collection of random tales. Not so here, as each builds off the last and making a strong case for fans to want more Darkhawk. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Apr 12, 2021

    For a character that is basically a mix and mash of Spider-Mans responsibility schtick, Iron Man or Rom's armour, Falcon's wings and Wolverine's claws, Darkhawk was well received. During he publishing life, it did feel like Marvel were trying to pimp into every book; there's no shame in that, after all that's how Dazzler got her big gig! This book is a love letter to all the Darkhawk fans, giving the character a new lease of life. Read Full Review

    This was fiiine. I've never been an avid Darkhawk reader, so... But I liked how each story showed how the character has evolved since his introduction. However, if this was supposed to make me excited for more Darkhawk, it failed!

    This was pretty bad and generic writing. Artwork was the only thing I enjoyed about it. Definitely wouldn't pick up the second issue.
