Carter Hall is back as the savage Hawkman! Carter's skill at deciphering lost languages has led him to a job with an archaeologist who specializes in alien ruins. And his latest discovery is Morphicius, whose deadly power spreads an alien plague through New York City.
Collecting issues #1-8 of the DC COMICS - THE NEW 52 series!
THE END OF HAWKMAN?
Archaeological linguist Carter Hall was done being Hawkman. Hawkman, however, was not done with Carter Hall. The mysterious Nth metal that powered Carter's armor fused itself to his body, unlocking powers he never knew he possessed. Far from leaving Hawkman behind, Carter Hall now carries Hawkman with him always and can call upon his powers at any time.
Carter will certainly need his new abilities if he is to survive the terrors descending upon New York City --- terrors that all have a specific interest in Hawkman's alien Nth metal. For alien invader Morphicius, the Nth metal could make him even more powerful, almost ensuring his conquest of Earth. As for the Gentleman Ghost, the metal would lead him to the mysterious Mortis Orb and everlasting life...in exchange for the deaths of millions.
A more savage Hawkman will rise, thanks to writers TONY S. DANIEL (DETECTIVE COMICS) and JAMES BONNY (Tomb Raider) and artist PHILIP TAN (GREEN LANTERN) in THE SAVAGE HAWKMAN: DARKNESS RISING (collecting issues #1-8).
