Hawkgirl/Covergirl-Pt.5 – As I mentioned earlier, I had identified total ten covers that Hawkgirl appeared on between 1960 and 1969. Three of which are outside my price range. The covers I that identified were six out 27 Hawkman issues (3, 9,14,19, 21, & 24) and one Justice League of America from 1969 (#72). However, I discovered the other day that I made a mistake and there is one Hawkman issue, from the 1960s, where Hawkgirl/Shayera appears on the cover in disguise. I am in the processes of locating that issue to add to my collection and I will provide details later.
Meanwhile, I am slowly adding to the collection. Between 1961 and 1984, I have identified a total of 28 covers that the Silver Age/Earth-1 Hawkgirl appeared on. The Earth-2 Hawkgirl from the Golden Age did appear on some covers in the late 70’s and 80’s but that is a different story.
Today, I added three bronze age Hawkgirl covers to my collection of Hawkgirl covers.
