I love this series, it makes me forgive fraction for what he did to my x men :D

Wow this looks great and hilarious to me. Obviously the wirecutting panel was adapted in some way as a reference from Lethal Weapon.

Let me guess, more of Hawkeye getting his ass kicked

I would prefer if if the red stripe on the bottom of the title page was gone and it was all white like before. Also, I think I prefer the purple over red. I am super excited, though. This is in my top 3 favorite books.

You can't start the article saying everybody loves Hawkeye. I don't.

Ok, his Marvel Universe counterpart was cool, but that was like a one in a million fluke.

Love the 90's video game feel.

OH WOW, reminds me of that Avengers video game where you could be Iron Man, Captain America, Vision, or Hawkeye. AWESOME! Love that its back to Aja too.

THis series is so awesome. that i had a pull list that i promised myself i would never add another title to it..well this series made me SQUEEZE it in there.

I recommend this series to ANYONE, but I must admit this series won't be for EVERYONE.

#10 Posted by Duo_forbidden (1161 posts) - - Show Bio

I must say that this series has really surprised me on how incredible it is. I wasn't a huge Hawkeye fan, except for the Ultimate Universe (I'm more into Green Arrow).

Holy F***! It's worth the $2.99 just to see a member of A.I.M. chanting we are the 99%! Diet Coke shot out of my noise!

I'm almost sold. This art looks awesome and I'd buy it for that alone.

damn i wished they'd give Hawkeye a costume, he just looks out of place with the other costumed heroes. DAMN YOU MARVEL!! FOR MAKING EVERYTHING AVENGER MOVIE RELATED! NEXT THING YOU KNOW WOLVERINE IS GONNA BE 6 FOOT 2

I hate this art with a passion. I would never be able to read a comic with this style art.

#19 Posted by haydenclaireheroes (9205 posts) - - Show Bio

Looks awesome as always with this series

I sometimes feel like I'm the only person in the comic book community that doesn't like this series...

... that is, until I see that #3 only sold 35k, and I realise there are others like me out there :)

Looking back, I don't think I've ever liked any of Fraction's work, and I really don't like Aja's art style, so it makes sense that this book wouldn't appeal to me. Oh well. As the saying goes, to each to their own.

@HushoftheWind

For your information The costume used in the movies is based on the Ultimates version of Hawkeye. where in the movie did Hawkeye have a bright purple sleeved shirt with sunglasses to make him "more like the movie?" Because outside of Iron man everyone is nowhere near like they're movie counterparts.

This damn book, why is it so good!?

#25 Posted by quatro_briefs (384 posts) - - Show Bio

No thanks.

#26 Posted by bladewolf (790 posts) - - Show Bio

Awesome series! There's a reason this is the only thing on my Marvel pull list.

Is it bad that the art makes me ify on buying the tradebacks/volumes? I only buy tradebacks (+)

It's too bad art is such a subjective thing. I think it looks incredible. Maybe not individual panels, but the layout and composition... OH, YEAH!

#29 Posted by Vincie_Pooh (109 posts) - - Show Bio

The Dec 13 page or second page of the comicbook. It reminds me of a side scroller when Logan, Clint and Parker (if it is Parker) a side scrolling video game. I swear i love this comic. The art... it brings me back. Thanks for the read BABS.

I doubt that is a bomb on the first page.

This is currently my favorite Marvel book. I love how off beat it is, and I really dig the art.

Definitely better than most 3.99 marvel books

#33 Posted by Botiste (50 posts) - - Show Bio

1st 3 pages and Hawkeye's already getting his a$$ kicked, seems like an every issue thing for this series, Hawkeye fights, a$$ kicked and saved by Kate.

35k is pretty decent for a second tier character solo title.

#36 Posted by G_Money_Christmas (883 posts) - - Show Bio

@cc1738: I didn't want to read it at all when I first saw because I didn't like the art, but it grew on me and now Aja is one of my favorites.

#37 Posted by bumpton (14 posts) - - Show Bio

Since getting back into comics about a year ago, this is easily one of my favorites. Effing amazing.

#38 Posted by ekrolo (436 posts) - - Show Bio

I love the 2-D game style of the panels, its cool and as a gamer I really dig it.

#39 Posted by TheReaper111 (128 posts) - - Show Bio

@cc1738: i also hated it at first but i picked up the book and read it and now i love the simplistic art style

#40 Posted by Trevel8182 (754 posts) - - Show Bio

Mazel tov Spider-Man.

#41 Posted by Ama_Sama (101 posts) - - Show Bio

I do get a kick out this series. The back forth dialogue always has a way of amusing me. But, the one thing I would change is the art work. It's just not the kind I gravitate towards. It's really almost too simplistic for me. But, because of the writing, I swallow my preference of art and deal with it.

#42 Posted by LaserLambert (636 posts) - - Show Bio

the art looks neat I guess, but I find none of this funny or clever.
