  I think I like the direction they're taking with Hawkman; having him tackle the more ambitious menaces like Dr. Hastor and Alexander as opposed to ordinary criminals. I also find it interesting that Carter and Shiera are a couple even though they only met last issue. I'm going to tell the next woman I meet that she and I are reincarnated lovers, and see how that goes!

I hope Carter had a talk with Shiera after this story, and told her it's not necessary to be "courteous" to opponents when it comes to catching wrong-doers. That, plus the mention about Alexander letting them go so she can get some sleep? Whose side are you on, Shiera?

3 stars.

  I absolutely love the lush, illustrative "look" of the Golden Age Hawkman strip, both now *and* a little later on when Mayer takes over. It lends the stories a very WEIRD TALES-Meets-THE SATURDAY EVENING POST sort of feel; half pulp, half highbrow. Completely different from anything else being put out by DC at the time.

  Shiera bugged the hell out of me this issue... she was so whiny.

  I loved the art on this one. Also, Alexander's cranium reminded me of the "Big evolved brain" stories that every member of the Superman family got during the Silver Age,
