Hawkman #2

   Two issues in and I'm almost ready to call the new Hawkman title the best version of the character since he first reappeared in the '60s!

   They've taken him back to his archeologist roots, looking for clues to explain the new, odd memories he's experiencing that indicate that he not only has lived many past lives on Earth - but he's also connected to past versions of himself on other planets.

   Writer Robert Venditti is building a powerful mythology here, and Bryan Hitch's artwork is stunning, whether depicting battles in the sky above Ancient Egypt or a calm ride on a subway train.

   I'm not sure where they're going with this (which is a good thing), but it promises to make sense of the hash that Hawkman's history has become - so I'm all for it!

Grade: A-
