Image: Jack Kirby's Hawkman
Today we have this very interesting piece provided by Rick, of Comic Book Letterheads, Plastic-Man Platitudes, Let's Rap With Cap, and Mail It To Team-Up fame (whew!). According to Rick, this Jack Kirby Hawkman piece was done as a part of a proposed Hawkman cartoon series which never saw the light of day. How far along this proposal got, what network it was for, and so forth, I do not know. But seeing Jack Kirby's rendition of a character so atypical for him is a real treat for me, a fan of his work in general. A Kirby Hawkman no doubt would have been a very powerful, imposing figure. I especially like the stoic look on his face in this piece.
A very big thumbs-up to Rick, who has been gifted with the Honor Wings for finding such a worthy contribution to the blog! Do you have something Hawk related? Send it along and you too can earn your Honor Wings!
