Hawkeye #22

5

The final issue is here at last. Spoiler: It was worth the wait.

Let's be honest, the wait for this issue has been brutal. As I've stated before, that's not something I want to dwell on. Having this final issue in my hands is fantastic. I have thoroughly enjoyed the series and have been looking forward to see what the conclusion has for us.

There is a lot going on here. We had a bit of a cliffhanger in the previous issue. Despite having read the next Hawkeye series and knowing the fate of some characters, there were still moments that will catch you off guard. Matt Fraction and David Aja tied up all the loose ends. The pacing, the art, and Matt Hollingsworth's colors were incredible. Seeing Clint, Kate, Lucky, and the Bros one last time was a blast.

All good things must come to an end. If anything, the delays have made this last longer in some ways. This is a seres I won't forget anytime soon. It's one I will definitely read over and over. If I were one to applaud comics I read, I would get up and give this a standing ovation. Fraction and Aja (and Annie Wu) did some really great things in this series. Let's hope we can see that magic again someday. Delays-shmeelays. It was worth the wait.
