Dark What?

Dark What?

Darkhawk is a character we find it extremely funny to kick around, but we do this only from a place of the most sincere affection imaginable.

Probably too much affection if we’re being honest here.

I mean, I don’t know how great Darkhawk really is, because I am unable to see him without my child of the 90s glasses on that made him seem so RADICAL because he was completely new. He and characters like Cable and Deadpool and Slapstick and Sleepwalker (all of whom should always be referred to together and should probably have their own team book) probably seemed so awesome to us because they were some of, if not the, first characters we’d seen come into existence on our watch.

I imagine this is also why people like their kids so much.

In other news: My story in Halloween comic anthology BOO! came out today!

It’s only $0.99 and you can get it NOW at Comixology!

PLEASE BUY IT!

In other, other news: IF YOU’RE ANYWHERE NEAR READING, PENNSYLVANIA, COME SEE US LIVE AT THE PENN STATE UNIVERSITY BERKS CAMPUS THIS SATURDAY! 

We’ll be doing a live episode of our podcast, a live Adam WarRock concert (that I’ll probably be somehow involved with), and just generally hanging out and meeting people and talking about the X-Men.

I think that’s it for now.

Pledge your allegiance to the Monster Mash everybody.

    This one made me laugh longer than I had in a while, one of my favorites.

    My mother wouldn’t let Hawkman comics in the house when I was a kid. They were either too violent… or Egyptian? I don’t know. 90s sensationalism, right?

    Anyway, she assumed Darkhawk and Hawk Man were basically the same thing, so Darkhawk #1 didn’t last long in my house.

    Fortunately, the overflowing comics market of the early 90s has rendered Darkhawk #1 virtually worthless, so I can always go back and buy it again!

    And that’s my Darkhawk story.

    I’m a sucker for Darkhawk. If Marvel ever wants to sell me a book, they just need to put Darkhawk in it. That’s whi I started reading Runaways and Avengers Arena. But when they added him to the cosmic level during War of Kings? Ugh, I would kill to have Chris back in all of that.

    And yeah, it’s 100% because he was a new character right when I was getting into comics. But unlike almost all the other characters coming out it that era (except, of course, Deadpool), Darkhawk has kept a special place in my heart.
