Hawkman Raised From the Dead (Story of His Lives)

"Hawkman Raised From the Dead (Story of His Lives)" from Hawkman vol.2 #17 (DC, 1987) by Dan Mishkin, Ed Hannigan and Don Heck
Hawkman's second series followed on straight from the Shadow War mini-series and had the Hawks continue to defend the Earth from their own people. Oh Thanagar, why are you trying to invade Earth? It switched gears after 10 issues (every story must end sometime, at least, back in those days they did) and ended after #17. One interesting thing about the 80s series was the inclusion of Gentleman Ghost as a supporting cast member, though I do prefer him as a villain. So glad that dude returned in various cartoon series. Anyway, these particular Hawks, though they seemed to survive the Crisis, were not long for this world and were about to be retconned as Hawkman and Hawkwoman 1.5, Thanagarian agents who went native. The "real" Katar Hol and Shayera Thal were about to make their first appearance in a Tim Truman Prestige mini-series...
