Quote: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.
I can't wait to get my collection of Darkhawk 1-9 in the mail!
Quote:The art was a lot better the first 25 issues with Mike Manley.
I decided to try my luck at eBay for issues 10-26 (issue 26 has the New Warriors on the cover) and the first two annuals. Got them all for a combined total of $46.47 (includes shipping) and ended up buying from three different sellers to get all of what I wanted. I always insist on VF/NM and only buy from sellers with a lot of transactions and high positive feedback.
Quote: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.
I think the general consensus is, any post-Bronze Age new character who can sustain a series for 50 issues can be counted a success. Interested in the question of how many such characters there actually were from our era, I used Wikipedia and eBay to come up with a list, which I've posted in a thread of its own.
I'm excited by my excursion into another 90s comic. Last time I did this, the series was The New Warriors, and I was quite satisfied. Hopefully Darkhawk will continue the trend!
