We'll start with issue summaries every few days starting with issue #1 and concluding with issue #50. After that, the format is very flexible and can include spin-offs and more recent appearances, or whatever people would like to see. This will be a very collaborative effort, with darkhawk79 and I starting off the reviews and discussion, but any and everybody is encouraged to participate and keep this thread going. If you would like to help out with the issue summaries, just contact me and we'll arrange it! Feel free to also contribute your thoughts, images, favorite moments, or criticisms as we go along. As a longtime Darkhawk fan, this is a very exciting event for me, and I hope others will feel the same way. Hopefully, we can also pull in some new fans to try out an old series.
A summary for Darkhawk #1 will be posted Thursday 12/2/10, so pull out your back issues or follow along with the summaries, and come ready to share your thoughts and experiences!
