Still more illustrated goodies and
gems, on the way!

The Atom and Hawkman, brief partners towards the end of the Silver
Age (and their titles, combined together at the time), rescue Jean
Loring from a villain called Toyboy. (And Hawkman seems to be
using quite a surprise for ammunition in the slingshot, my
goodness!) When Atom gets stunned momentarily, Jean perks him up
again with an affectionate kiss. Aww, isn't that adorable?
I most certainly must concur with what is said by Atom here: "All
superheroes should get this kind of attention!" Quite right.
Similarly, the other panel, depicting the Silver/Bronze Age Hawks
reuniting after an argument is also very adorable, and brings a
smile to the face!
Sheira and Carter change back to their regular clothes following a
late night search for crooks in Midway City. And Byth challenges
the Hawks to a showdown in the Silver Age. Hmmm, I do wonder, what
weapons will they use for this battle?
Rescuing a maiden in distress from a gang of Arabian bandits. Go
for it, Carter!
During the Silver Age, on the left side, the police chief of
Midway City offers a hand to the Hawks in getting ready for
residence in the big town, pre-Crisis, of course. And, on the
right side, Hawkman gets a big kiss from Zatanna, at the time
she'd taken up different costume designs in the late 70s-early
80s, while Power Girl looks on, finding it charming.
This is a picture of Katar Hol and Shayera Thal flying over
Chicago in pursuit of a superpowered criminal called Ricochet. And
Shayera is carrying a crossbow too. Oh, and nice view of some
sunbathers on the roof, eh?
This is a Golden Age intro panel, featuring one of the early
designs for Hawkman's mask. Plus, a drawing of Sheira posing with
a mace while smiling for the camera. You go, Hawkgirl!
From one of the first Adam Strange tales of the Silver Age, we
have our eponymous hero explaining one of his scientific
strategies in battle with Alanna's dad Sardath. The planet Rann,
homeworld of the father and daughter, was relatively close to the
planet Thanagar. As a result, there was at least one story
published in Showcase during the Bronze Age where the Hawks and
the Stranges teamed up.
Groovy! The girlfriends of Atom, Aquaman, Hawkman and Snapper
Carr, and boyfriend of Wonder Woman, pay them a visit at the JLA
headquarters during the Silver Age.
This panel is an Iron Age telling of Katar Hol's background and
its connections with Carter Hall, by ways of his father Paran
Katar at that, from the Hawkworld
series of the early 1990's. It features some of the characters who
made appearances at the time within the series on the bottom of
the panel too.
An adventure in the Golden Age through the desert, where Hawkman
is lucky to find a lake and take some time to wash up.
In this panel, Katar's mask/cowl appears to be one sans the wings,
From a postcard published in 1984, drawn by George Perez at the
time he'd been assigned to illustrate the New Teen Titans. Amazing
postures and character design.
