Hawkgirl/Covergirl Collection Update #60

Millennium #1 (January 1988) VF $1.70 I cannot say that this one was before my time. Instead, I will say that this was between my time. Millennium came in the time between Crisis on Infinite Earths (COIE) and the end of the Nineties, an era in DC comics that I am least familiar with. I think that Millennium was the first post-Crisis cross-over event. It … Continue reading Hawkgirl/Covergirl Collection Update #60

Hawkgirl/Covergirl Collection Update #59

The Hawkgirl/Covergirl Collection started out as kind of a lark (pun intended). It began when I recalled and later confirmed that the character was a “rare bird” who only occasionally appeared on the cover of a comic book. This was throughout the silver age, when I was a kid growing-up in the Sixties. For example, there was the 1st Hawkman series that ran for 27 … Continue reading Hawkgirl/Covergirl Collection Update #59

Hawkgirl/Covergirl Collection Update #57

World’s Finest #272 (Oct 1981) FN 6.0 $6.00 You will not find Hawkgirl on this cover. She is, however, between the covers in a story titled “Drive Me to the Moon” (script by Bob Rozakis, pencils by Alex Saviuk, inks by Rodin Rodriguez). I have decided to now include in the collection, books from the silver age & bronze age that contain stories in which … Continue reading Hawkgirl/Covergirl Collection Update #57

Hawkgirl’s Little Secret

Here is an idea for new DC comics series: Hawkwoman (featuring Hawkgirl). In this series, Hawkman has not yet returned or is for some other reason separated from Kendra Saunders. Kendra is now in her early 30’s and she now goes by name Hawkwoman. Who, you may ask, is Hawkgirl? Her 18-year old daughter, Mia. Back in 2003, there was a mini-series spin-off from JSA. It … Continue reading Hawkgirl’s Little Secret
