Darkhawk, one of the coolest characters Marvel has created in the 90s, is making a return! Darkhawk will be getting a celebration issue for his 30th anniversary called Darkhawk: Heart of the Hawk in April. The issue will have three different stories. The first team behind this one-shot is writer Danny Fingeroth and artist Mike Manley!
Here’s what Danny Fingeroth said:
It’s an understatement to say that I’m thrilled to team up once again with the great Mike Manley to reveal an untold tale of Darkhawk’s earliest days. Hawkamaniacs are always asking me when we’ll be returning to the character we established, and I’m glad to have the opportunity to once again tap into the Darkhawk magic with Mike. Hope everybody enjoys this new tale of the high-flying, amulet-wielding hero!
Next Darkhawk story will be written by Dan Abnett and art by Andrea Di Vito:
When I was asked to write a story celebrating Darkhawk’s thirtieth (!) anniversary, I was happy to oblige – especially as it was chance to revisit the cosmic part of his career when I put him out among the stars with the likes of Nova and the Guardians. And I enjoyed it more than I imagined — I had forgotten what a great, lonely, determined hero he was. I also love the fact that this special reflects the different ages of Darkhawk’s thirty-year odyssey, bringing back creators who created him and helped shape him through every stage of his adventures. He may be turning thirty, but it’s been quite a ride and, for Darkhawk, the future is just beginning…”
And the last story will be written by Kyle Higgins:
As someone slightly newer to Darkhawk — certainly compared to Danny, Mike and Dan — I’m incredibly honored and excited for the opportunity to build a story that both celebrates what Danny, Mike, Dan and so many other fantastic creators have built over the last thirty years… while also setting course for the future.
Darkhawk is honestly a good character, and for the character to get a new life makes me happy. I definitely see a bright future for Darkhawk, and I can’t wait to see what stories will be told.
