This week’s All Star Western #7 is bringing back two characters of old, the Wild West superheroes Nighthawk and Cinnamon. Much to Dr Arkham’s chagrin.
Nighthawk was created by Robert Kanigher and Charles Paris in the forties as a costumed cowboy, later revealed to be the reincarnation of Egyptian prince Kufuh, and destined to reincarnate into Carter Hall, Hawkman. Cinnamon was created by Roger McKenzie and Dick Ayers in the late seventies, and was shown to be the reincarnation of Egyptian princess Chay-Ara.
Though here, boith in their introductory issue alongside Jonah Hex and Dr Arkham, they also get a continuing backup strip. Where basically they continued to hit bad guys. It’s all rather Nite Owl and Silk Spectre…
All Star Western was one of the few non-superhero books of the DC Universe, even if it was fully ensconced in the world, with Gotham, the Cobblepots and the like. Will these remain the only two such characters… or will, as it has in the later DC Universe, catch on a little?
All Star Western #7 is published by DC today. Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics of London.
