First Look: HAWKEYE #2

Now it is time for Kate Bishop to enter the scene.

Have you had a chance to read HAWKEYE #1 yet? It was a great start to a new series. You can check out the review for the first issue here. And it looks like we're not the only one that loved it. Marvel has released a preview for the second issue already. Fan-favorite character, Kate Bishop is appearing. Nothing more needs to be said. It's going to be great.

Marvel is proud to present your first look at Hawkeye #2, brought to you by the superstar creative team of Matt Fraction and David Aja! The Arrowed Avenger is back on his feet and hitting the Marvel Universe to prove once and for all that he’s worthy of the title of Avenger! But he won’t be going it alone, as fellow archer hero Kate Bishop fights by his side!
The critics have spoken, Hawkeye is a hit!

I wonder if he kept the dogs name Arrow. which i thought that was very funny and cliched that they did at the end.

You got me, I'll have to pick up #1 today at the shop and give it a shot.

I thought it was a wonderful ending. Hilarious and touching.

The first issue was excellent. I am way to excited for the 2nd. I almost wish this was bi-weekly like the rest of Fractions main books.

I said it once and ill say it again. Fraction is great at writing a single character story, not team books. the first issue is fantastic and hope they keep him on for at least 12 issues before they decide to change up the writers again. and keep the artist. it goes great with fractions writing.

just as long as there aren't anymore villains who keep repeating the same stupid shit.

Couldnt agree more! Except for Thor, that book is pretty bad. I really wanted the Defenders to be good, because I love a lot of the characters. But I couldnt stay on for more than a few issues.

Not funny.

@TheAnnihilator: I'm not even joking.

Posted by RedQueen

Not feeling the art, but I love me some Kate Bishop, so I'm down.

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

Posted by TwistedGamer

@xanimosity You should give defenders another chance, I think it's great

Posted by Meteorite

Right, I'm sold. Adding this to my pull list.

Posted by SavageDragon

I really dug the first issue, not sold on the art but loved the issue non the less. I will be picking this up.

Posted by Smurfboy

Couldn't find the first issue of Hawkeye today in store. :( I will try again this weekend. Hope it out by then.

Posted by shadowpdf1

Clint Barton is Marvel's slut. Seriously, if it is female and it walks, Clint will eventually bang it.
 
And it isn't even cool. It is bloody annoying.

I'm most looking forward to Marvel trying to defend this very likely upcoming case of one of their heroes committing paedophilia with similar excuses to that which an actual paedophile would use in court.

As another point of interest, SMG's like those, the bullets would not go too deep in the water. I think 3 or 4 feet under water and you would be safe from the bullets. they lose all momentum. might hurt your ear drums though.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Hmmmmm, seems alright I suppose.

Posted by JoseDRiveraTCR7

The first issue was the first thing from Fraction that I liked. Can't wait for the second issue.

Posted by Smurfboy

Check out this third issue I've found from Comiclist.com

Posted by War Killer

Love the art.

Posted by Miss_Garrick

Boy, the art and panel work is terrible.

Posted by Blood1991

I think this going to become one of my favorite series. Yay Hawkeye and other Hawkeye.

Posted by fACEmelter88

Pretty awesome, usually not into this "type/style" of artwork but I like the unique approach he takes and Matt Fraction is quite alright.

Posted by fodigg

I like his uniform a lot. Why are they drawing Kate to look so much older? I really hope they don't introduce any romantic tension, which would be skeevy.

Posted by TDK_1997

Looks good.Still haven't read #1 though.

Posted by BaBaBoom

This makes me puke invisible rainbows. Is that normal?

Posted by BaBaBoom

@X35: If Kate Bishop got stuck in the future for 3 years and then when Clint Barton comes to the future to bring her back that's when he'll nail her. After that Matt Fraction will get booed for plagiarism.

Posted by Sleepwalker570

Looking forward to it! Issue #1 was awesome.

Posted by HombreMan

So which monker name will Kate adopt? Hawkbird? Arrow? Knightress?

Posted by PrioritySeven

Love this cover!

Posted by geraldthesloth

Good writing, the art is bad on the eyes though.

Posted by edge0076

This looks like it's going to shape up into my new favorite Marvel book. Perfect combination of character, writing, and art. I absolutely love how it's more grit than slick.

Posted by Teerack

Eh the first issue was awful.
