Hawkman and Hawkgirl Armored-Up Sketches

As posted on the DC Universe: The Source blog:

ABSOLUTE JUSTICE, collecting the series from writer Jim Krueger, artist Doug Braithwaite and some guy named Alex Ross hits in November. And because we can never get too much Ross goodness, we've got the previously-unseen dustjacket from the collection, along with some character sketches that will also be in the Absolute.

Ross really seems to have a thing for the Hawks looking like, well, humanoid Hawks, as these sketches strongly remind me of his Hawk-headed Hawkman from Kingdom Come.  Still, an interesting study for fully-armored (and feathered) pair of Winged Wonders.

You can see the uncropped image, which also features the Atom, Plastic Man, and some headshots of Flash and Red Tornado, here.

Ugh. At least he had an excuse with Northwind/KC Hawkman. This is just the badness.

Agreed. The look just looks... wrong to my eye.
