The artist confirmed via Facebook that he is returning to the DC Comics superhero for the first time in eight years.
"Going to Hawkman on issue #9 in a couple of months… it´ll be a great return to me after 8 years," he wrote.
"Hawkman was my first DC book and to get back to it is a joy... Art Thibert on inks and Jason Right on colours is a great joy."
Bennett is a fan-favourite Hawkman artist, having completed an acclaimed run on the title between 2004 and 2005. He is also known for his work on other DC series, including Deathstroke and Teen Titans, as well as extensive Marvel Comics contributions.
