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

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.

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).

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.

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!

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.

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

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.
