Nice.  Is it just me JB or are the legs quite Kubert-esque?

Mandated by the customer's request for Hawkman with his wings spread wide. It was landscape, or have Katar flying sideways!

For some crazy reason I half expected a Tweety drawing!

Excellent Hawkman, you're one of the few artists who can actually get me interested in the character.

I have to say that you could make up all the core members and a lot of the peripheral JLA members from the character commissions we have seen. Are there any more that you have an affection for JB that you have yet to do?

Wow. That's the greatest Hawkman ever!

(thumbing casually though first half of Showcase Presents: Hawkman - the Joe Kubert pages)

No. No, wait - Second greatest Hawkman ever!

(thumbing casually though SECOND half of Showcase Presents: Hawkman - the Murphy Anderson pages)

Okaaay. THIRD greatest Hawkman ever. And I mean that.

Probably the only current day artist who gets the headpiece correct, IMHO!

JB, was it the commissioners or your choice as to which era to go for with Hawkman? This one is wearing aSilver age head piece isn't he?

JB does a good Hawkman. It kind of reminds me of the splash page to G2.

I second the Head Piece approval.  The other one never works for me.

JB, Is Hawkman's flight capability entirely wing based or is there some added kind of technical propulsion?

The wings are for steering. He gets his lift from
anti-gravity metal in his belt.

What I like about the headpiece is that it looks like a "helmet" for lack of better term, that is sitting on his head, as opposed to a more form-fitting "mask".  Reminds me of the original way it was shown, and really just makes good sense and looks pretty damn good!
