Another entry for the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe REDUX blog [link] ....Nighthawk, Kyle Richmond, one of my favorite costume designs of the 1970's and a character I always associate with the Defenders!
Me too, I think his potential was pretty squandered, would loved to have seen him ascend to the top of Marvels Heroes, where I always imagined he would belong some day! His costume redesigns going forward from his original appearance here didn't help matters any...............guns on his wings, wolverine claws and horrible mask alterations, if it ain't broke..................
Hey Thanks Matt, I love your stuff man, it's such a great style and your subject matter is right up my alley! Defenders #17-Doc Strange , The Hulk, Powerman and Nighthawk squaring off against the Wrecking Crew in a double page spread by Sal Buscema, one of my earliest comic book memories, made me an instant fan of all of them!
Very cool! My cousin who actually got me into comics and into producing comic artwork used to let us look through the old Marvel Universe and pick a hero for him to draw for us. This was one of the earliest picks! Great work.
