DC’s Hawkman Found starts off at issue one this month. And how is it ‘FOUND’ to read? Let’s ‘find’ out!

Jeff Lemire writes, Bryan Hitch pencils, Kevin Nowlan inks, and Alex Sinclair and Jeremiah Skipper color this issue, which begins with first, a dream, then a cave. Now, I always like stories with caves in them, because it is a sign that there will be mysterious things happening! In this issue, a man who “could” (for all we know) be Hawkman, and he is trapped in a cave. Like Space Ghost was recently, or Kamandi, again, recently. Anyway, there are a lot of caves around, so it’s all good.

As “possibly” Hawkman gets his bearings in the cave, he is forced to fight! Evil creatures are trying to kill him!

Well, that’s far enough in painting the plot for you; the issue is a VERY quick read; my reading time clocked in at six (6) minutes!! The art is gorgeous, the dialogue and descriptive text are minimal. The plot is continued and moves from this comic into Dark Knights Metal issue #5.

Not a strong reading experience for me, but maybe it works better if you are following the Dark Knight Metal saga.

DC Hawkman Found #1, $3.99 for 25 pages of content. T for Teen

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
