A Job for Superman

"A Job for Superman" from Man of Steel #1 (DC, 1986) by John Byrne and Dick Giordano

The Post-Crisis DC Universe ends this week (or you might call it the Multi-Crisis DCU, your choice), so Your Daily Splash Page could do a little theme. All week then, all splash pages will come from "first post-Crisis issues". It's a taste of what we're about to do all over again.

Hawk Training

"Hawk Training" from Hawkworld vol.1 #2 (DC, 1989) by Timothy Truman and Alcatena

Though Tim Truman reimagined Hawkman for the 90s, it was John Ostrander's underrated follow-up series that I really admired. It's not featured here for lack of good splashes and had always been handicapped, I felt, by strange, extreme coloring from Sam Parsons.

Hawkmen and Menhawks

"Hawkmen and Menhawks" from Brave and the Bold vol.1 #43 (DC, 1962) by Gardner Fox and Joe Kubert

All this week, a little something I call "Hawkman Through the Ages". He's been reincarnated often enough, and so has his series! Sheesh! We start of course the only place we can, for there is no better Hawkman artist than Joe Kubert. I'm surprised at how few stories he actually drew.

(Sorry Golden Age fans, I couldn't quite get my hands on a Hawkman splash from the era - if any exist.)
