I have enjoyed Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye series tremendously. I enjoy Fraction’s Clint Barton much more than the Barton in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Volume 3, though, focuses on the other Hawkeye, Kate Bishop. Kate is 21 and from a wealthy family. She may be young and brash, but she’s a great Hawkeye, especially when paired with Clint Barton. Unfortunately, Clint is wallowing in his own feelings and Kate decides she can’t watch anymore. So she takes The dog, flips off daddy and heads for the […]
4.5 stars I didn’t know a whole lot about Hawkeye outside of the Marvel comic book movies, where he’s clearly an excellent bowman and reclusive family man, but also Black Widow’s wise-quipping sidekick. I’ve heard good things about Matt Fraction’s run on this comic for years, and since it was on our shelf, this summer seemed like the right time to finally check it out. I’m so glad I did. Full review on my blog.
Bittersweet ending here, as Matt Fraction’s run on Hawkeye comes to an end, but it’s a good end. It’s been almost a month since I read this, so this review will not be great. Additionally, I read it and five other comics as part of the Dewey’s Read-a-thon, and fading real fast into the night. I was loopy and barely remember most of what I read during that period. But with that disclaimer out of the way, this was a good last volume. The first […]
Bro. I have to tell you about these comics, bro. It’s about the story, bro, and the art, bro. Just, bro. You have to read these, bro. (I’m stopping now. I promise, that will make more sense once you read the comics.) I don’t remember when I started hearing about Fraction and Aja’s Hawkeye, since they started a few years ago. It might have been online, it might have been my like-minded friend who’s always telling me about what she’s reading. All I knew is that […]
Hawkeye: Little Hits is a really weird book. The second collected, trade paperback of Matt Fraction’s run, this volume still has the everyman humor of the only not-super member of the Avengers. For the most part, the art is still the minimalist work it was in Volume 1, and the plot is still Hawkeye mostly dealing with personal problems instead of global threats.
