I have this thing about winged or caped characters. Something about them and their ability to soar above the rest of us just appeals to me. So when I got into comics back in those long-ago days of my youth, I became a huge fan of Hawkman. He’s one of those great heroes that I can’t get enough of. Then imagine my delight to be reading the newest Hawkman series, and to find that it is excellent! More than that, they’re just getting revved up!
I was actually looking forward to this comic, the second installation in the Rann-Thanagar Holy War series. Iâ€™m a science fiction nerd at heart, and whenever you get guys flying around with ray-guns and rocket packs, Iâ€™m a happy man. And this issue was just as good as the last one, with a story that really has me interested by Jim Starlin.
or, “Superheroes. In. SPAAAACCCE!” With a Crisis in the DC Universe there inevitably comes a return to Rann and Thanagar. Thus, for all of us who enjoy a bit of the good old science fiction, all of our space heroes come together to deal with some cosmic threat that somehow always ends up focusing on Rann and/or Thanagar. So the first entry in DCâ€™s Final Crisis turns out to be the Rann-Thanagar Holy War, and it looks as if Jim Starlin, writer of this series, has a definite issue with religion.
