    Hawkgirl #3 is a fun team-up, adds depth to Galaxy and Kendra’s characters, and also progresses the Nth metal mystery plotline as the book continues to be one of the cutest, gayest, and most badass current comics on the stands.

    This is definitely one of the most ambitious stories in DC’s stable, and while that can sometimes overwhelm the story, it usually works as a fascinating character study.

    Overall, this issue is not the strongest in the series so far, but it still had moments that made for an entertaining read.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Hawkgirl #3 felt primarily like a “guest shot” issue where Batman is shoe-horned into the story. Even though Vulpecula seems like a very generic villain, I love the interactions between Hawkgirl and Galaxy, as well as the great fight scenes and action. I’m hoping next issue we’ll get more insight into Vulpecula and the Nth Metal Dimension.

    Story wise we get a possible explanation for the seemingly double stories we get in the beginning of each issue. From the conversation in the Batcave it is possible that we are witnessing two separate dimensions. Vulpecula could have the ability to traverse this dimension. The question remains why?

    Now halfway through its run, Hawkgirl is starting to feel like a story that doesn’t know what it wants to be. Axelrod manages to inject some stellar character moments throughout this third issue, only for the plot to largely be a carbon copy of the first two issues. It’s the same thing once again and worse yet, the story forces itself to feature DC’s most popular characters when it shines best when it focuses on Hawkgirl and Hawkgirl only.

    The Fandom Post

    There are some fun bits along the way that touches on how Kendra’s forgotten or missed out on some of the right ways to be a superhero and that comes from interacting with the locals. The small sequence at the start when she deals with the Croc Bloc gang is light and fun and I appreciated the street-level element that we get. The stuff with Galaxy and Batman is fun and just acknowledging the Corgi delivers as it should. The book has all kinds of potential but it feels like it leans in an area that’s just tiring and that the execution is keeping it from achieving what it needs to.

    Hawkgirl #3 isn’t very good, but it’s slighty better than the first two issues. Still, Hawkgirl #3 poorly concocts an excuse to head to Gotham for an obligatory Batman cameo so the world’s greatest detective can add context to Vulpecula’s backstory. At best, this issue is flawed and mediocre.
