- 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.

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.)

Here's the relevant Wikipedia article:

Were you a fan back in the day?

A comic store opened in my hometown around the time of Darkhawk #1, so I grabbed it out of curiosity and as a possible collectible item, but enjoyed it so much that I kept reading until it ended.

The art was a lot better the first 25 issues with Mike Manley.

He was a teenager, so the whole journey of learning the powers crossed with high school and family life worked well, and there was one writer for all 50 issues to tie it together. I was very disappointed when it was cancelled.
