Original Hawkman Page from Flash Comics #97 by Joe Kubert
Today we are finally finishing up a series of Joe Kubert original art pages from Flash Comics #97! You can find the previous installments here, here, here, and here!
In the final page of art (which is page 7 of the story), Hawkman has devised a plan to stop the Muans plan and defeat them, shooting a signal rocket filled with "hypo-salt" into the atmosphere. As the Muans attempt to feed a victim into their device, Hawkman leads them on a chase, as the ostensibly hypo-salt-infused rain begins to pour down on them.
I really like how Hawkman looks in the first panel, all trim muscle. Unfortunately that second to last panel is very awkward looking, though the final shot of Hawkman fighting the goons is nice. I would like to know where Hawkgirl is but I guess something happened to her in the two intermezzo panels!
I want to give a big thanks to Doug Zawisza, author of the Hawkman Companion for TwoMorrows and curator of the Doom Patrol blog, who hooked me up with these images last year. Sorry it took so long to get them all run but now everyone can enjoy them!
