World’s Finest #280 (June 1982) FN $5.40
I am currently collecting a series of issues of World’s Finest from the early 1980s in which the Hawks appeared under the title “Hawkman”. Hawkgirl, or Hawkwoman, as she demanded to be called, appeared in most of the 21 issues from #256 to #282 of World’s Finest. The period covered was from May 1979 to August 1982. I have nine issues left to purchase to complete this run.
In the story titled “Now You Czemm… Now You Don’t!” Hawkman encounters an alien who has the power to “cloud men’s minds” via hypnotism causing Katar to “see” Shayera and others.
