HAWKMAN (2002) (#1-49) (DC) #18 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Hawkman #18
"Blood Lines" is written by Geoff Johns and drawn by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez. Many and sundry were the past lives of Carter Hall, the Hawkman. And while many would do anything for the ability to live forever and to soar above the clouds on wondrous wings, Hawkman feels trapped by the cycle of reincarnation he's been locked in since his days as a prince in ancient Egypt. In one of those many lives, Hawkman was a blacksmith's son named Koenraad Von Grimm in a Medieval German village called Lubeck. Returning there to a tavern he helped establish, Hawkman finds not so much has changed in 500 years.

Carter's memory takes him back to the smithy of his father, Niklas, where he was taught the true value of a sword was not in its ability to kill but in its power to save. His parents were killed by the plague in the year 1500 but Lubeck thrived on. At the tavern, Carter encounters Jonas, a bitter drunkard who he keeps from committing assault on a group of tourists. Later, in the town's cemetery, Carter and Jonas talk of loss and grief. For Jonas, alcohol has been his escape from the terrible reality of his young wife's sudden death. But through Carter's wisdom, Jonas begins to see the path toward healing.
