First Look: HAWKEYE #9

Who's trying to kill Hawkeye? It's up to the ladies to try to find out.

What better way to brighten up your day with a preview for the next issue of HAWKEYE. I think everyone here on staff at ComicVine are absolutely diggin' the series. As you'll see in the press release below, we're not the only ones!

Hawkeye's gotten himself into a bit of a mess recently. Well, he pretty much always is in a mess. There are some people out to kill him. Check out the preview for the next issue.

All eyes are on the Arrowed Avenger as the critically acclaimed creative team of Matt Fraction and David Aja put Clint face to face with the cold hard reality that someone is out to take him out in Hawkeye #9! Say you have to kill the Avengers, make a list – who do you kill first? The regular guy. In this action packed issue, the women in Hawkeye’s life get involved. That’s right, Black Widow, Mockingbird, Spider-Woman and Kate Bishop attempt to tie up all the loose threads that may point to Clint’s secret attacker! But can they find out who’s leading the track suits before they claim another victim?

Fans and critics agree – Hawkeye is a smash hit!

“This is one of the best life books on the shelf.” – Joshua Yehl, IGN.com

Hawkeye continues to be the standard upon which all great mainstream comics should be judged.” – Kelly Thompson, ComicBookResources.com

“It's a combination of humor, action, suspense and pure entertainment that makes me look forward to each and every issue.” – Tony Guerrero, Comicvine.com

“[N]o other book looks quite as good, top-to-bottom, as Hawkeye.” – Conor Kilpatrick, iFanboy.com

“Hawkguy is the gift that keeps on giving.” – David Pepose, Newsarama.com

Can the Girlfriend, the Work-Wife, the Ex-Wife and the protégé find out who’s behind Hawkeye’s headache before it too late? There’s only one way to find out – preorder Hawkeye #9 now, bro.

You know what so long as Matt doesn't consider Kate one of Clint's "girls" in the way natasha, bobbi, and jessica are or have been I'm 100% down with seeing these kick ass women solve some problems under matt fraction's pen.

I love this series. I love it so much I would buy an I (heart) Hawkeye t-shirt like Kate Bishop's.

That Jessica page is amazing.

Could Aja's covers be any more simple yet magnificent?

Can't wait!

This looks like this issue is going to be really fun to read

See Greg... and you were questioning Jessica's and Clint's "serious" relationship. Fraction thinks of everything!

I'm really happy to see Fraction is taking more time to explore Clint's current relationship with Jessica Drew. I kind of assumed he would just leave it where it ended and move on.

Why do I feel like Clint is being made to look like a joke in this series

@G-Man: Thanks. I will definitely be getting this. The comic of coarse and the shirt. I love this comic. and that is why I want the shirt too.

Why are Mockingbird and Spider-Woman in sixties go-go outfits?? And those hairdos? Also very sixties. Its cool, but I just don't understand why.

I just found out the other day, my daughter totally thought his name really was HawkGUY when we watched the Ultimate Spider-Man episode with Hawkeye. After all these years...well, she's only 9.

I really wished that Bendis had paired Peter Parker and Jessica Drew together instead of making Clint her partner. It would have been far more interesting to see Peter and Jessica in a close relationship as he has with Carol Danvers and Mary Jane.

In addition, I hope the see Clint in a relationship with the Black Cat as that would be a fun relationship to read about. Since Clint has Bobbi, Natasha, and Jessica in his cornner, he should add Felicia Hardy to the list. As for Peter Parker, his new heroine partners should be comprised of Black Widow, Spider-Woman, and Captain Marvel. That's in addition to the She-Hulk, Silver Sable, and Psylocke.

Still not wild about that art, but still, looks interesting. So thinking about getting a TP or something soon of this since Fraction and DeConnick are going to be doing a signing at my LCS next month :)

CV also got quoted on the TPB (not sure if it was from a Tony review or a Gregg one, though)

Posted by JakeN7

Isn't the first image from issue #8?

Also, Hawkguy is by faaarrrr my favorite book from Marvel (and I'm reading a lot of them.) Can't wait for next every issue!

@daredevil21134: That or if Steve McQueen was trying to be a super hero.

It was my quote from issue #1. So yeah, I bought a copy. Wish it was HC though.

That caught me off guard as I posted this, so I checked out the issue. It was a cropped image in 8. I imagine this will expand the scene. So we can find out what fully was going on.

I see, interesting. I can't wait to get the whole context of that scene. It was definitely a favorite of mine that issue. It was almost like a rogue's gallery for Clint, except it's more of an ex's gallery.

Same, as well as the Shade TPB. But hey, whaddya gonna do. They might have planned for it to skip HC before it turned out to be such a hit and by then it was too late.
