Two Costume Concept Drawings in Ink dated 1958/59 of Hawkman and Hawkgirl. 6"x10" and 10"x8" sheets with what appears to be the first concept renderings of the Silver Age Hawkman and Hawkgirl.  Dated in Kubert's hand with notes on the Hawkmansheet "Suggest Mask (as in original Hawkman) to "Strike Fear in the Hearts of Evil Doers".. If  Logical Reason For Flight Is Necessary, Could Have Rocket Strapped in back, bewteeen wings..."  Each  piece is signed by Kubert. These drawings were pinned for years to the corners of Joe Kuberts  drawing table until put away for safe keeping by  his wife. These are truly pieces of Comic Book History.
