“JUSTICE LOST” part five! Alone on the Watchtower, The Flash must find a way to save an astronaut drifting out into space. Meanwhile, Batman’s obsession with redeeming himself for two critical failures feeds a growing crisis of confidence in his leadership.

Review: Hawkman Found #1

One of DC’S greatest heroes is missing! No one has seen or heard from Carter Hall-a.k.a. Hawkman-in years. Reincarnated repeatedly since the dawn of humanity, Hawkman has spent his many lives uncovering history’s most fantastic mysteries, and now he has become one himself! Take a journey into the one of the darkest corners of the DC Universe as a mysterious man tries to piece together what happened to Hawkman, and how it all connects to the events of Dark Nights: Metal!

So far, Dark Nights: Metal has been a winner. Even the events’ tie-ins have generally been good. But, there’s been some clunkers and Hawkman Found #1 is definitely in that category.

Writer Jeff Lemire is one of the best out there currently and even his talent can’t deliver much of a reason for this tie-in to exist. Up until this, we know Carter Hall went into the Dark Multiverse and now he overseas the Forge as a twisted version. You’d think we might get how that all came about with this issue but instead we just get the story for what we already know without the details. Carter Hall went into the Dark Multiverse after the Challengers of the Unknown and now he’s this giant being. From point a to c is missing a stop at b.

Instead, this issue reads like a mirror to the horror dream issue featuring Batman a bit back. The focus here is Hall instead and his history as Hawkman, sort of. Not a whole lot is explained and maybe fans of Hawkman will appreciate more. But, I’m not one, so who knows what went over my head.

The art by Bryan Hitch is decent and there’s lots of styles of characters mixed together. There’s so good angles and snapshots of the action but like the story, the art misses the mark a bit failing to deliver that “holy shit” moment of excitement.

The story and art are pretty lackluster. It’s off. Which is very weird. Lemire is better than this and the event is better than this. Probably why this feels like such a disappointment.
