Comments: The Night Hawk appeared as a back-up feature in the Nelson Lee Library (the main stories being those of the detective after whom the magazine was named). He soon gained a sidekick in a similar suit, called Sparrowhawk. Thanks to Steven Montgomery for informing me of this character, and providing me with the original picture I had of him.
