Hawkman Sketch -- Phil Hester
Our sketch this week is by Phil Hester, probably best known for his runs on Green Arrow and The Irredeemable Ant-Man. Here he adds another tiny hero in the form of the Atom, standing appropriately on Hawkman's shoulder. I like the "roughness" here; Hester's art has a quirkiness to it which suits some characters. Hawkman's helmet looks visually interesting here, and so I give my thumbs up. Just wish we could see what he would do with the full figure, including the musculature and the wings!
