Facing the business end of the comfy chair.

I made this strip back in July, so I had sure as hell better be ahead of schedule now...Previous episodes: one, two, three, four, five, six and seven.

Without the mitigating influence of his lovely wife Hawkwoman--who is nowhere to be found yet in my area, along with the rest of that wave--Hawkman can be a bit of a jerk. Usually, it's not as noticeable, since his jerkiness plays against other jerks like Green Arrow. And maces in the house? Didn't his mom ever tell him to take it outside?

(Does Hawkman even have a mom in regular DC continuity? I know his dad played a bigger role in the Hawkworld series, but I can't recall his mom ever being mentioned. And how much would it suck to give birth to this new baby, that's been reincarnated about fifty times? Granted, I don't think he knows anything from the start, but still, it'd have to take off some of that new baby luster.)

Go Kurt, bust him up!

Heck, I don't think Green Arrow's parents have ever been mentioned in any particular detail, either.

Maybe that's another reason why Ollie and Carter hate each other. Too much in common? ;-)

I've commented once before, but I've been reading for a lot longer (At the start of Timing).
I just would like to say that I'm loving yur comics-strip-type-thing, even when 'Pool isn't in it, it's still hilarious.

Oh, and does this mean you think Mystique is stronger than Hawkman?

Ah, thanks MrGBH, and I wanted to tell you, but I don't want to spoil Wednesday's! (I will say, I'd guess Hawkman can take a punch better than Mystique...)

I have been kicking around the when-and-if of Pool's return; which luckily would be easy as pie to do. But I think Sam will hang around a while longer...
