With lovely art by the Eisner Award Winning artist Steve Leiber and newcomer Jesse Hamm, it’s a perfect pause before the next Fraction/Aja mini-opus begins….featuring the reveal of a villain that I can promise you no one sees coming." - Matt Fraction

Well played Mr. Fraction and Marvel. Class Act!! And because of that I will make sure to purchase this issue and get into this series. I've heard good things about this.

Man lines and coloring are awesome. The colors all play off each other and keep a solid look and mood. The Line work is complex and yet done in a simple fashion.

This along with the stuff on the inside of the Flash Comics as of late has been awesome. Wonder Woman has had some pretty cool stylized stuff to.

David Aja fills the void left by David Mazzuchelli. Love his stuff.. Hawkeye is a great comic too.

This book is soooooooooooo good too bad Aja isn't doing the artwork for this one :(

Great artwork and very nice gesture. Good on Marvel.

I still find it humorous that Red Cross was referring volunteers and donations to Occupy for Sandy relief because they were more efficient.

not a huge fan of the artwork on this and the inking is a bit off in the last 2 pages imo. That said i do completely appreciate the intentions behind it. Good on you, marvel! *thumbs up*
Nick56 - 12/31/2012, 9:24 PM
not a fan of the art at all

It's sad that this is a better comic than Slott's TASM...

never been a fan of hawkeye but since reading this series i must say what a great title it is & it has actually changed my view of the character,he is pretty bad ass.
KalebAmos - 1/1/2013, 8:30 AM
Diggin' the retro pencilling. Hawkeye is such a great character and it's nice to finally see him getting his own series!

Yeah......again a naturally occurring storm in NYC really shouldn't happen with the express permission of Storm or Thor. Hell even Reed should have some super forcefield working.

Can Marvel please stop shoe horning horrible real life events into comic book continuity? It took years to wash the 9/11 stuff out my my eyes, now they are going to do this about Hurricane Relief, in comic books where heroes control weather that could prevent the storm. Comics are a reality escape, if you want to donate proceeds and do a special cover and stuff like that. Bit I NEVER want to see something as stupid as Dr. Doom crying over Ground Zero ever again.

@ nivekian

i know what your saying but the royalties from this issue is going to the red cross hurricane sandy relief effort.

so its pretty decent of marvel to do this.
Thegeekygurl - 1/1/2013, 4:39 PM
I wouldnt even call those images "bad art" because to say its "art" at all would be a praise it doesnt deserve.

They look like scrawlings from a young child.

Thegeekygurl - 1/1/2013, 5:16 PM
@Nivekian Its Marvel Comics shamelessly trying to capitalize on death and disaster.

Fact #1. The US population is estimated at 315,039,000. Marvel Comics only reaches only about 50-60 thousand readers a month. They are no longer relevant in our culture and have not been for some time.

Fact #2. Marvel sales stats only reflect sales to dealers not actual customer sales, "Hawkeye" is a very poor selling comic with only 34,211 orders in Nov.

Fact #3. This is obviously an attempt by Marvel to get "Hawkeye" some coverage in the media in a hope it will increase the poor, pathetic sales on this very poorly done comic.

I not only agree with the post by Nivekian, I find it disgusting that Marvel not only tried to use 9/11 for an publicity stunt to regain some form of relevancy, but that we saw images of their CARTOON characters at ground zero when in fact we had REAL HEROES who were there dealing with the aftermath.

If Marvel had merely gave money to victims of 9-11 that would be honorable, especially if they did it without publicity. But Marvel did more than that. They published "TIE-INS" with their name and characters and used it as an opportunity for publicity at a time when they desperately needed it.

We do not need Marvel cartoons to help bring light or gravity to 9-11 or "Sandy". Real people suffered and continue to suffer and have died because of those events.
Real life disasters are times when we need to focus on REAL VICTIMS not focus on Marvel TOONS.
And REAL LIFE DISASTERS are horrible events not adventures of "Hawkeye" and "Spidey".

What's next? An image of Captain America crying at Sandy Hook Elementary? Why is it, I think something like that is coming from the UTTER SCUM at Marvel?

good stuff cant wait to give it a read

@1geekygurl

Hawkeye is doing better that some highly regarded and well received books like animal man and venom. For what is a secondary character in the avengers mythos, I'd say its doing well. And its not like the book has been anything short of well written and fun.
