World’s Finest #259 (November 1979) VG $4.00
Here is yet another issue of World’s Finest where Hawkgirl is neither on the cover of nor is she seen within the covers.
Curiously, we are told that Hawkgirl is “off with the rest of the Justice League on a mission for the guardians of OA” it is curious because although she does not appear in either the October or November 1979 issues of Justice League of America, she does appear in the December 1979 issue #173; but then again so does Hawkman. As a result, there is a bit of continuity problem.
From the solicitation: 68-page giant. Superman and Batman in “Gotham City–Ghost City) (script by Denny O’Neil, pencils by Rich Buckler, inks by Dick Giordano), Green Arrow and Hawkman in “Stake Out Earth” (script by Gerry Conway, pencils by Don Newton, inks by Dave Hunt), BlackLIghtning in “The Last Hideout” (script by O’Neil, breakdowns by Marshall Rogers, pencils by Michael Nasser, inks by Vince Colletta), and Captain Marvel in “The Secret of Mr. Tawny” (script by E.
