Earth 2 Hawkgirl by Brett Booth

In the upcoming fourth issue of Earth 2 by James Robinson and Nicola Scott, the all new Hawkgirl makes her debut.  Robinson informs readers that he plans to keep her in line with her "predecessor", the original Kendra Saunders.  Moreover, the new Hawkgirl is to fill the void left by Earth 2's Batman, as a hero with an emphasis on detective work.

A closer study of the new design concept and cover art shows some form of Egyptian influence around the optical areas of Saunder's helmet, harkening back to the classic Gardner Fox Hawkman origins and mythos as well. Notice the lines from the helmet partly descend to the character's cheeks. Is there more perhaps to Saunder's new look? We'll see.
