True story, a few days ago in the shop, a customer asked me was Hawkman a continuation of Hawk And Dove. I dunno if it was exhaustion or what, but I mumbled yes, and he bought a load of issues.
Here's the thing: is this nonsense any worse than what Jim Starlin wanted to do with him. Or any of the nonsensical bullshit that the character's been shat upon with in recent years. The saving grace of the book is that, because its Liefeld, it gets a little more press, and attention than the indy geek writing Grifter (before Rob, anyway), or the guy on Voodoo.
Plus, you know, because he's on THIS, it means he's not on a character people actually care about.
