Hawkman Volume 3 Poster

Well, this was supposed to be yesterday's post, but that didn't quite happen.  So here it is today instead!

I saw this poster on eBay and immediately dug it.  As I have said here before, the first Hawkman comic I ever bought, or read for that matter, was Volume 3 Number 1, so I am very partial to this particular look.  I don't remember ever seeing this poster before this, but then again how many comic shop owners put up Hawkman posters?

I considered bidding on this but passed, since I really don't have the space to put up a poster like this.  But the more I look at it the more I like it, and I may have to make some space for it if I can get my hands on it in the future.

That was your entry point? No wonder it took you so long to commit to a Hawkman character blog... ;)

I really dig this poster! I was working at a comic shop when this series started. I'm pretty sure we hung this poster for some period of time.

I was a huge fan of Hawkworld and really wanted to like this series. However, I lost interest when the avatar issues became too much. I should probably go back and give the series another shot. I'd probably enjoy it more now.

Regardless, great poster!

@Frank: If by "entry point," you mean "bought the first two issues and then chased some other fad because I was dumb," then yes!

@Shag: I need to read Volume 2 (the post-Shadow War one) before I even get to this one. Yeesh!
