Hellos & Goodbyes

Please Welcome… Giant Hawk?

Greetings Hawk-tropicans!ย This is Giant Hawk speaking, and I’ve got some pretty exciting news. This news being that I have officially become the PHB’s newest author!

Now, I’m sure not everyone on the blog here knows who I am. But then again, I think that’s what this blog post is for, right? Well, my real name is Joshua (I do prefer it over the nickname Josh), but do call me Giant Hawk, or if you wish, use the abbreviation GH.


If you wish to find me for any reason on Poptropica, my username is Joshuawesome8. If you want to find me across the web, check out my Gravatar, which has links to my Twitter page, my DeviantArt profile, and my user page on the Poptropica Wiki (on which I am an admin).

Also, I think I should mention that I am actually the older twin brother of Ultimate iPad Expert.

More on who I am, though. I am an extremely avid writer. In fact, I’m beginning to send out my written works locally in real life. Poptropica-wise, I also have something super big planned, so be on the lookout early November for the announcement.

Acting is also a super big part of my life – especially when it comes to the often overlooked art of voice over. I am a fan of a lot of professional voice actors, but my two favorites are Dee Bradley Baker and Tara Strong. Go look them up if you want – I’m sure you’ll recognize a lot of their characters.

Entertainment-wise, my favorite shows are Gravity Falls and Steven Universe. I also love Pixar’s movies.


Is there anything you guys think I missed here? Is there anything else about me you want to know? Feel free to leave as many comments below as you wish!

Until next time…

  1. Welcome Josh\GH! Acting is also a huge part of my life! But anyway good luck and my poptropica user is Survive821 if anyone wants to add me!

    1. Thanks for the welcome! I wish you luck in your real life acting!

      PS: I prefer Joshua over Josh, but if you want, you can just call me Giant Hawk.

    1. Let’s see… My favorite Gravity Falls episode is probably either The Time Traveler’s Pig, Land Before Swine, or Not What he Seems. My favorite Steven Universe episode is probably either On the Road, Winter Forecast, or Nightmare Hospital.

    1. I shall bring my best and more ๐Ÿ˜› As for my name, I prefer Joshua over Josh, but you can just call me Giant Hawk.

      1. Yes, we are twins. Let me note, though, that this fact is in no way related to the reason why I joined the staff here. ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Wow, that’s awesome! ๐Ÿ˜€ I thought when you said twins you meant poptropica twins! XD

  2. Welcome, Josh! I actually like Winter Forecast on SU, Too! im glad we have a new PHB author! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Hiya, GH! Can’t tell you how excited I am that I’ve found another avid writer WAHOO ๐Ÿ˜€ Also, would you rather be called Joshua or Giant Hawk (I couldn’t really tell from the post XD)?

    1. Hoorah for avid writers! The world would be a much less interesting place without them ๐Ÿ˜›

      Also, I prefer being called Giant Hawk over Joshua, but I don’t mind if people call me Joshua.

      1. Out of curiosity, mind if I ask if you like constructive criticism? I kinda have a thing for it xD
        Okay, I’ll take note of that ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Feel free to criticize constructively! That is one of the best ways to help someone become a better writer, after all.

      3. I feel ya xD I also can’t write when people are staring, which is what makes it stressful for me xD

      4. A fellow writer who understands what I have to go through everyday of my life ๐Ÿ˜€

      5. Giant Hawk, Dangerous Eye, and Popular Wolf. Together, they are the 3 Musketeers of Writing! XD

      6. When your bro sent me an invite to blog on Poptropican Awesomeness, he made the worst pun of all: Author-tunity! So I think we should make the Pun Fanclub!! Whoo, go puns!

      7. Just kidding, the only time I like puns is when they’re subtle and not screaming LOOK AT MEEE!!

      8. Oh puns. There are the best – yet, they are simultaneously the worst. Truly, puns are one of the world’s most profound mysteries. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. So sad: GH keeps telling everyone he prefers to be called Joshua over Josh but everyone keeps calling him that!! ๐Ÿ˜›

      1. I’m wondering if everyone misunderstood the statement “Well, my real name is Joshua (I do prefer it over the nickname Josh)” ๐Ÿ˜›

      2. That’s cool with me. I didn’t choose Giant Hawk to be my Poptropica name for nothing, after all.

      1. Sounds like it could be fun, actually. If you send me an e-mail about it (my e-mail is posted on my Gravatar, link in the blog post above) we could work it out together. It might not be canon with my usually works, though.

  5. Wow! You’re one of the top three PHB authors I can relate too!

    —The Mad Apper*—

    *Check out my blog if you’re interested. It’s PoptropicaApp.wordpress.com

    1. Thanks for the compliment, Mad Apper!
      PS: I actually have checked out your blog before. It’s really unique (in the best way, of course)

  6. You should see PIEGUYRULZ’s videos on Steven Universe and Gravity Falls, he also has some Pixar videos

  7. Welcome to the PHB Giant Hawk/Joshua!! You are so lucky because I have always wanted to be a PHB author! I really look forward to your posts (UiPE posted a comment that you are writing a special post in November-can’t wait to see what it’s about!) and I hope you have been warmly welcomed. Have a great day ๐Ÿ™‚ ~ Shiny Panda

    1. A super big thanks to you Shiny Panda! ๐Ÿ˜€
      As for my big post, I plan on releasing it November 2. Trust me, it’ll be super exciting. ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Hey, GH, we both joined/found out about this site within a month! (I found out about it and you joined as one of the staff.)
    P.S. The first phrase of your second paragraph sounds like my first journal entry.
    P.P.S. How long have you been playing Poptropica?

What's popping, Poptropicans?
