Quote:- that I couldn't resist making a Darkhawk banner for the 80s and 90s board. After all - to my mind at least - few characters say "90s" like Darkhawk.
Quote:I was so intrigued by the discussion at the Marvel board that I bought the Darkhawk Volume 1 collection via Amazon and can't wait to receive it. I remember dabbling in Darkhawk back in the day and always enjoying it when I did. This will be my first sustained reading of the character. (Back in the 90s pretty much all of my comic book reading was "dabbling," because I felt alienated by a lot of what was being published - an alienation that continues to this day, though not as intensely, as I've come to terms with it better, and also because I love a lot of what Marvel is doing on both the big and the small screens.)

Quote:Were you a fan back in the day?
1. I liked Chris as a member of the New Warriors
2. I didn't really like his solo comic. The art and stories were never that great. The origin of the Darkhawk amulets revealed around issue 25 was kind of confusing (who has which armor again?).
3. I loved the stuff they did with him in War of Kings. They dumped the origin (which I thought was pretty crappy) and reinvented it from scratch. I loved the whole Fraternity of Raptors angle. And the art in that War of Kings Ascension limited series (which was about Darkhawk and the Fraternity of Raptors) was gorgeous. If you haven't read that go find it.
