PULSE Interview with Kyle Baker
THE PULSE: I'm sure you probably could have asked about working on just about any DC character, so why Hawkman come about? What's your story about?
BAKER: Hawkman's a great character, and I hadn't done a Hawkman story before. I e-mailed Mark a story outline. The story begins with a plane hijacking, because there aren't very many other crimes committed in the sky, and Hawkman has to fight crime in the sky. The hijacking leads to a mystery involving an alien invasion from space.
The rumor is that the new weekly series after Trinity shall be called Wednesday Comics (ugh), and Kyle Baker's Hawkman project will be featured in it. I'm not really thrilled with the artwork but hey, Hawkman solo stuff is Hawkman solo stuff.
