"Endgame" by Rob
Liefeld and Marat Mychaels marks the final installment for the "Hawk
and Dove" short-lived series. After taking a beating from Hunter
last issue, the avatars of war and peace take the fight back to
their enemy, and this time they are not playing nice. The dialog is
loaded with a sense of finality, as if the characters had reached
some kind of milestone, while the closing pages try to elevate their
triumphs since the start of this run, allowing some ends to remain
loose as potential plot devices for future storylines.
Let's hope that Hawk
and Dove find a new home soon in the pages of another book -JLI,
perhaps? Regardless of how this title turned out, its detractors, or
the unfair "guilty by association" campaign it was subject of, its
biggest success was giving these characters much deserved
exposition, letting it gain new fans along the way.
