'Death of Hawkman #1' by Marc Andreyko with art by Aaron Lopresti is a book that I flat out loved. It's a 6 issue miniseries, but it's good to see these characters in action again.
The story starts now on the planet Rann. Adam Strange is trying to help an injured and bleeding Hawkman. You know there will be flashbacks to show how we got here. Those flashbacks belong to Adam Strange this time around. I especially like a series of panels showing just his eyes as images from his life flicker by. He lives on Earth waiting for the call to act, and waiting to hear from his wife Alanna. They live on Rann and Adam is trying to get back to her. Based on the opening panels, what awaits him when he gets there.
There is more Adam Strange than Hawkman in this issue, but I was really okay with that. I loved the inks by Livesay and the colors by Blond over Aaron Lopresti's pencil's. I think this is one of the stronger books I've read lately, and I look forward to reading more.
I received a review copy of this issue from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this issue.
