Hawkman and Hawkwoman have been reincarnated again, but they have been resurrected in the past.

Back with their teammates in the JSA, the duo are fighting their old foes and marveling at their fond memories of these heroes and their personalities. Unfortunately, something is off with Carter and that might give their enemies the advantage they need.

Elsewhere, an unseen force works with an ancient artifact. One that has a connection to Carter and his fate. An object that can make this resurrection of Hawkman the last one.

Robert Venditti removes one of the biggest and longest running character traits from Hawkman and that allows for some interesting drama to the story. I like the fact that he takes the story back to an earlier time and there are clues throughout that there is more to their being back with the JSA than meets the eye. Hawkman’s narration and memories of his teammates hits all the nostalgia buttons and the story is filled with enough suspense and surprises to make it interesting and engaging to the reader.

Fernando Pasarin delivers some great visuals throughout the issue. The art has an awesome contrast between the highly detailed and vibrant fight sequences and the eerie, shadowed figure working behind the scenes and against Hawkman. A great looking issue.

Score: 7.6
