Hawkgirl/Covergirl Collection #85

Hawkgirl #61 (April 2007) VF $2.40

It has been a while since I bought a book with Hawkgirl on the cover. Over the summer, I took a brief detour when I discovered that books from the 1970s VG or better are very affordable. Thinking that I had run out of books from the 70s that featured Hawkgirl on the cover, I looked into availability of books where either she appeared as Hawkgirl or as Shiera in a story. I found approximately a dozen books published in that decade. Also, I did in fact find the book that I had missed with Hawkgirl on the cover (see Hawkgirl/Covergirl Collection #71)

Cover by Howard Chaykin

To make up for not having purchased a Hawkgirl cover in a while, I bought six of them this time around. These six books complete my collection of the short-lived Hawkgirl series which ran for 17 issues from issue #50 To issue #66 from 2006 to 2007. It was a continuation of the Hawkman series that ran for 49 issues from 2002 to 2006.

In the story written by Walter Simonson and drawn by Renato Arlem the search for Hath-Set continues as Hawkgirl runs afoul of the deadly Female Furies of Apokolips .
