Hawkgirl/Covergirl Collection #130

The Countdown That Never Was…

Back in January, I started a countdown of what was meant to be the final five comic books to be added to the Hawkgirl cover girl collection. It was when I got to number three in the list that I made the discovery that I had missed not one but two books from a decade ago. As far as collecting new books goes I had fixed the last book to be Hawkman Volume IV #29. Its inclusion should be obvious when seen below.

When I ordered the missing books. I didn’t think that it would take until the month of May before I received them. Those items will be revealed in the next post. Just to keep things straight, here is what was supposed to be numbers four and five of the Final Five Countdown.
