Along the way, the main character Death Hawk encounters treacherous hotties, back stabbing partners that were forced upon him, primitive and easily manipulated natives and not to mention an interstellar corporation that owns most of the known Galaxy.
Death Hawk is very similar to characters we all know. There are aspects of Kane, which shouldn't come as a surprise, but I found that he was also quite similar in mentality and personality with Jack Burton (Big trouble in little china).
We have a hero (sort of) that does his best, but quite often finds the tables turned on him and things don't go anywhere near as he had hoped or expected.
Hawk has a side kick / partner, a Symbiote named Cyke who is part wiseass, part encyclopaedia, mixed in with a few nifty abilities that help Hawk out of some rather dangerous predicaments.
Of course, after reading this book, you can see where Mark got some of his inspiration for things we've seen in Outlanders. First, Brigid. She's not named Baptiste in DH, but the physical similarities are there, although she's almost the polar opposite of our Baptiste. Second, we have the Tigers of Heaven, third this is where he originally introduced the ASP weapons.
Do I have to say it then? I better, because some people occasionally don't clue in. If you like Outlanders, you should enjoy Death Hawk.
Also, I would strongly recommend that you read the introduction by Douglas Clegg as well as the interview with Mark at the end. It will fill in some blanks for you, things that as I was reading the comic had me scratching my head in confusion, mainly background and the like.Read more ›
