Hawkman #23 comes out this Tuesday 5th May written by Robert Venditti and illustrated by Marcio Takara and Fernando Pasarin, with covers by Mikel Janin and Gerardo Zaffino. We take a trip to plague-riddled 17th century Europe and meet the enigmatic Plague Doctor as Carter Hall relives the pain of this previous life once again. Check out our preview of this week’ new issue below and be transported back to Seville, Spain in 1650 AD.
Cloaked in black and wearing the eerie mask of a hawk, the mysterious Plague Doctor roams 17th century Europe in an attempt to ease the suffering of those who fall victim to the Black Death. But how is the Doctor supposed to help anyone when he’s hated and feared for his unique immunity to the disease? It’s mind versus body as Carter Hall relives his most tragic past life in a last stand to fight off Sky Tyrant’s control over his body for good!
