Hawkeye #1 Preview

Well I ran across some

pages that are supposed to be from Hawkeye 1 on CBR.

Fasinating, I'm really excited about this title

I like the art, but seeing as Hawkeye never seems to be able to hold down an ongoing, I don't see this series lasting very long.

I liked Hawkeye & Mockingbird even though it was short lived. I plan on checking this out too. Looks like it may have a little more of a noir/crime slant. Loved this creative team on Iron Fist.

That is a fear of mine, but I really want it to succeed, but like you said it is probably more or less wishful thinking.

Another great character who deserves an onging, but can't hold one. I'm crossing my fingers for this series.

I don't like the Art. I would prefer it to be a bit more colorful. If they want to go for dark then the art needs to be more realistic. I'm holding out on this comic. If Hawkeye has a big role in this comic, then I may incline to buy it to support her.

They are going to need to give her a new name if her and Clint are going to be in the book together otherwise it will be a confusing mess...

According to Hawkeye, the world is big enough for 2 Hawkeyes. He's trying to make Hawkeye into the next generation of superheroes. Hawkeye is his successor, so I don't have a problem with them having the same codename. Furthermore, if they are going to be sharing screentime, then the title of the book would be fitting since they are both called Hawkeye. Maybe when they are alone, Hawkeyes could refer to each other as Kate and Clint.

Caring less and less about this title each time it's mentioned. Miss the days when it was just the real Hawkeye not in a totally generic outfit.

To be honest, I think his old-fashioned purple outfit looks like a joke. When you put it in bright light, he looks like a purple Scottish with the kilt and all that. Marvel is obviously trying to capitalize on the portrayal and popularity of Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye in The Avengers - so it is understandable.
 
Likewise, I also understand your frustration as a Hawkeye fan.

I'm going to get this series, I just hope they don't end the series so quickly like they did with hawkeye and Mockingbird

I don't like the art, but the fact that its Hawkeye will sell at least the 1st issue for me.

Looks cool.

Not bad but I'm not that excited for this.

From a battle forum mod. There you have it, folks.

It is funny how much more Hawkeye is acting like Green Arrow than Green Arrow is in his own ongoing series. I wonder if half the reason Marvel is giving Hawkeye his own ongoing is because they want to capitalize on Arrow this Fall. Regardless I am a little more interested in Hawkeye than I was before I saw the preview.

@Redberry: I really don't mind the art. I really like this is going to be street level , like Ironfist or Daredevil. I just can't wait for this series. I am getting excited on how Matt will work this.

I'm cautiously optimistic for this book. Gonna hold out for reviews and hope that it turns out good.

#21 Posted by Omegus (187 posts) - - Show Bio

I really can't wait for August 1st now. Ill be at the comicshop right after work to pick my copy up. Radical!!

Not thrilled with the art but gonna buy it cause it's Hawkeye. Liked the art better in Hawkeye and Mockingbird.

@onggeo: I jive what your layin out, and that's radical.

im going to try out first 6 issue regardless, as well as gambit.

but from what i see with art, i kinda like the noir style. hopefully the story of this book can go something like Dardevils on going series..i have high hopes for Hawkeye, Gambit on the other hand..mmm..idk..he isnt ongoing material.

I think most heroes can have a sucessful series with the right team. I have high hopes for both series and if they are destined to live short lives I will enjoy them for as long as they last. Unless they suck then I will be P!ssed.

looks crummy and annoying.

#28 Posted by Redberry (797 posts) - - Show Bio

Did they draw it with a potato? The art looks so amateurish.

#29 Posted by Omegus (187 posts) - - Show Bio

interesting...

@X35: You seem to think this about everything.

I'm looking forward to it. A lot of people didn't think Iron Fist could hold an ongoing as long as he did, so I hope this will follow the same pattern.

You kinda put those in the wrong order.

#31 Posted by X35 (5981 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheAnnihilator: All that is is Hawkeye constantly reminding us he doesn't have super powers, being an asshole to an orderly mixed with random dog death.

The art is nice enough.

@TheAnnihilator: I thought I might have, so I put a link. I was in a rush I was running a little late for work so I was rushing.

I admit I'm a little disappointed. Hawkeye one of Earth's Mightiest Hero's now damaged dog rescuer..... If Fraction doesn't pick up the pace and make this good I be one unhappy Hawkeye fan.

I kinda like it. I don't love it, but I think I like it.

Newspaper comic strip art?

I can't wait til tomorrow!

#35 Posted by Blood1991 (8098 posts) - - Show Bio

I read it and loved it. Someone go make a page for his new dog Arrow because he will be on my favorites list. As long as Fraction stays away from teams I think he could really grow on me as a writer.

Lol - the first page showing Clint firing an arrow from a window >>>>Avengers much<<<<

#37 Posted by EnlloLeal (22 posts) - - Show Bio

@Galactic_Man: It's iconic now :P Anyways it intentional by Matt Fraction.

And here’s Matt’s script…

PAGE ONE

THREE WEEKS AGO: Classic HAWKEYE: Clint, in hero costume, falling away from us, firing an arrow. MANHATTAN lies below him as some threat tries to yet again blow the place sky-high. Aliens? The Wrecking Crew? Frost Giants? Army of Ultrons? Avenger-Sentinels? I dunno, man.

So we start with the most classic Hawkeye image that has been conceived of to date; so classic in fact it’s sort of the only shot poor Clint rated in the new AVENGERS trailer. Falling, face up, firing. Maybe he fired a couple arrows and reloads another. Whatever strobe effects you want to play with, David, are always welcome…
