Exclusive: THE SAVAGE HAWKMAN #12 4-Page Preview

Hawkman captures the mercenary Pike and learns what his next move might have to be.

Things are beginning to look a whole lot clearer for Hawkman in THE SAVAGE HAWKMAN. We received an exclusive preview for issue #12 this week that gives us a big hint at what might be in store for Hawkman very soon. The winged hero has come face to face with Pike, a mercenary hired to seek him out. Question is, who hired him? Enter the alien race, the Daemonites, who are coming close to invading Thanagar. Looks like Hawkman may be meeting more people like him in the very near future -- at least based on this preview.

THE SAVAGE HAWKMAN is written by Rob Liefeld and Mark Poulton and features art by Art Thibert and Joe Bennett. Check out the preview below and let us know if this is a series you have been enjoying and whether or not it's an issue you will be picking up on August 22nd, 2012.

A few years back when the Starcrossed episode on Justice League aired, I became interested in Hawkman and Hawkgirl. I was only 11 back in 2004, but had my grandma get me a subscription of the Hawkman comic that they had at the time. It was written by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti, with art by Joe Bennett. Beautifully drawn comic at that time when reading. Carter Hall and Kendra Saunders had great chemistry and it was just a good comic that Justin and Jimmy wrote. So lately, I've not really liked the story, but I love the art. With their All Star Western being really well done and their pre 52 Jonah Hex comic that was really good too, they should put the two of them back on Hawkman. I personally think the comic good be rebooted, not in the New 52 way, but still be the same characters but make it more grounded and make The Savage Hawkman something more than written by a 90's artist. Since Kendra is on Earth 2, Carter Hall/Katar Hol and possible Shayera Hol/Hawkwoman could go quite well if done correctly. I love what they did on Justice League Unlimited. Anyways, rambling as usual. New to the forums, but excited to post some more.

i assume you're talking about Liefeld, in which case, agreed.

That covered scared me... good thing he's not doing interiors.

I was into Deathstroke and Grifter until Liefeld came aboard those titles. And look here, I didn't automatically hate it because it was 'Liefeld'. Honeslty... while I don't really like his art, I kept an open mind, both about his writing and by reading comments from Liefeld fans who defend him. So I gave it an honest chance.

No sir, didn't like it.

I genuinely do not want to crap on Rob Liefeld here, but at the same time... I've dropped Deathstroke and Grifter and that Hawkman cover tells me not to buy Hawkman.

I'm going to pretend it was a choice on Mr. Liefeld's part to indicate that Pike isn't very bright but one cannot "fathom" heights.

That said, I've always found Hawkman more interesting in theory than in execution so I will likely not pick this up. The interior art is pretty sweet, however.
