*DC: A favourite here at 30th Century Towers, 1961’s Brave & Bold #34 saw the introduction of the Silver Age Hawkman (not to overlook his lovely bride Hawkgirl), by scripter Gardener Fox and illustrator Joe Kubert, both of whom had worked with distinction on the character’s 1940’s incarnation. In keeping with the other Silver Age ‘reboots’, Hawkman and Hawkgirl’s origin was thoroughly Space Age this time – visiting police officers from the planet Thanagar, here to study Earth law enforcement while masquerading as co-curators of the Midway City Museum. A refreshingly equal partnership – far from being Hawkman’s sidekick, Hawkgirl was his wife, his partner in life and work, and, many of us believe, actually the smarter of the two – smart enough to let him think he was in charge, at least! One of the best relationships in comics, some of the most inventive and diabolical villains, and sumptuous, beautifully-detailed artwork. Katar and Shayera (or variants thereof) are now co-stars of the DC Legends of Tomorrow TV show, so this is an excellent opportunity to get in on the ground floor of their history! This clean, attractive FN p copy with vibrant cover colour is offered at £280.
