    Well, at least it's not a sex tape.

    Synopsis: The Tape concludes.

    There’s a reason why the cover is like that. It was supposed to be a simple job. Go to the auction, get the tape, and leave. But when you’re Clint Barton aka. Hawkeye, there’s no such thing as a simple job. S**t happens, that’s what Matt Fraction is saying.

    It’s still fun and games with this issue however. Hijinks occur, and we get a couple of fight scenes. Things does get a bit suspenseful near the end and the truth about the tape is revealed as well which, is actually interesting.

    Like in Hawkeye #2 and #3, Clint and Kate’s relationship is wonderful. Their specialty? They improvise. A lot. They also joke around. With Katie, she surprised me in the last issue disguising herself as Madame Masque. But that shows how much she admires Clint (after all, she is Hawkeye) and how they make a good (disorganized) team so, when she sees what’s on the tape, I don’t blame her doubting Clint. Meanwhile, Fraction continues to give Clint great characterization with his inner dialogues.

    Once again, Matt Hollingsworth and Javier Pulido do a wonderful job with the artwork. Besides the retro look, another great feature Pulido does is the character expressions. Characters like Madame Masque who wears a mask even have some kind of expression.

    I think I already said this in past issues but, I love Hawkeye. The creative team is just doing wonders with this book, and I think this may be my favorite Marvel series of 2012.
