Pick of the Week #744 – Hawkman #26

Show Notes

It was a rough week in the world of comics but Conor Kilpatrick and Josh Flanagan persevere, not knowing what lies ahead. That doesn’t make them heroes but then again, it doesn’t not make them heroes. They will leave it to history to decide.

  1. You don’t need to destroy the past to create the future.

  2. Hey guys, loved the show! Minor note, Kitty can come on to Krakoa, she just can’t use the gates. That’s why she travels to the island by boat.

  3. Great show as ever, you’re so right about the need for Hawkman to tell different stories, Conor; when Geoff Johns brought in the reincarnation business, people hailed it as a great simplification when to me it seemed to be adding a new level of complication. So long as writers refuse to write about anything else, I’m good with it going away.

    If you want a great, ungodly Diana story, try the super-cheap Wonder Woman: Agent of Peace #4, by Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti and Daniel Sampere. There’s a terrific new character in there.
