Hawkman Head Sketch by Michael Turner
Turner handled Hawkman on the Identity Crisis miniseries, where he was one of the major players. His art was even the inspiration for a DC Direct toy. I rather dug his depiction of the Winged Wonder, and this headshot is from that same school. The helmet looks spot-on, with the downturned beak and the long, ornate Honor Wings. I like the pursed, seemingly angry mouth as well as the tensed muscles evident in Carter's neck. Turner almost always had Hawkman's eye lenses look alien and inhuman, and that looks great here. All in all this is a very nice piece.
