Hawkman Secret Files & Origins #1 (2002)
Although my story in JLA/JSA SECRET FILES was written first, my work in this book was published first. I collaborated with then-Hawkman writer Geoff Johns on all nine profile pages and it was a fantastic experience. Geoff and I talked about what he wanted to see in the profiles and then I did my research, adding a few new tidbits of information of my own (like Speed Saunder's birthplace and Kristopher Roderic's middle name). Once I had written the first drafts, Geoff tweaked them a bit and they were ready for publication. Some of the profiles were reprinted in the first two Hawkman trade paperback collections.
