So at the end of Widowmaker, Clint gets smacked in the back of the head during a fight and says he's fine. This follows straight after, where he discovers that the many blows to his head he's sustained have affected his brain and he's going blind. So what we get here is all the Clint backstory you could want, almost (minus his relationships, anyway) - flashing back to his abusive parents, the various circus workers who took him in and screwed him over, Barney's betrayal, being introduced to the ...more

This is a good, solid look at the history of Clint Barton wrapped in a storyline that any Hawkeye fan will wince at in the way you only can we you are deeply concerned for the well being of a fictional character. The story's simple: Hawkeye's taken one-to-many blows to the head and is slowly going blind, not in the sense that his eyes are failing, but that the singles from his brain are screwing up, and he's not only having trouble aiming but occasionally having momentary flashbacks of the peopl ...more

This reads like an introduction to the Hawkeye character, as though Marvel was planning to relaunch him--which I guess happened, although I don't follow comics' publishing too closely. Still, it's a good read because Hawkeye is an interesting character--a superhero because of his skill, not some secret formula or being born a God or something, and he keeps up with the Avengers--even leads them, despite his trouble with authority (which gives him empathy towards others).

As a recap, it's fin
It's taken me a while to get used to reading graphic novels. I have a difficult time with the comic sans font for some reason, and visually, I find both pictures and words confusing. However, I've been working on it, and decided to take a chance on Blindspot because Hawkeye is my favorite Avenger.

I wasn't disappointed. Moving back and forward in time, we see Clint as a young boy, his love of his brother, Barney, and Barney's rejection of his younger brother When an accident leaves Clint slowly
This book is a very one good one, one that finally tells us the history
of Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye).
As the title suggests, Hawkeye is going blind. And if you think that is the biggest problem Clint could have... you're wrong.
There's a shadow from the past that always haunted Clint, and now it's back as his worst nightmare.
If there's something I should criticise about this book, is the villain chosen. I think the reason they gave him to fight Barton was to silly, or not fully developed to actu
This was much, much better than I expected it to be.

When people are coming back from Clint Barton's past, you have to expect a certain amount of ridiculousness. His particular backstory just lends itself to that sort of thing, and even if it didn't, Clint himself is a bit of a snarker who doesn't much like listening to other people and will quite happily barrel into a trap if he thinks he can out-think the person setting it.

Really like it, the plot is simple & solid.With the many flashback/history even a new reader can easily be introduced to Hawkeye. The art and coloring is excellent specially the ones shown during the flash back.

Easily the best of Hawkeye mini series written by Jim McCann(other being Hawkeye and Mockingbird & Widowmaker).
My Brief Bookshelf Overview: awkward-or-cheesy-writing, gave-up-before-finishing, story-not-intriguing-enough, unlikable-or-superficial-characters

Feels like a shitty DC comics origin story; tho only difference is that it's a Marvel comics publication.
Not my favorite of Hawkeye books, though I am extremely spoiled by the Fraction series, so anything I'm reading now after that might have a hard time impressing. Still, a solid intro to Clint Barton. Worth the read.
This is not Fraction's Hawkeye but it's a good one. McCann's wrote a believable story around the consequences of the end of the Hawkeye and Mockingbird arc.

I like Hawkeye solo better than the duo with Mockingbird.
We get to see more of Clint's backstory and his stubborn personality. Parts are over the top and somewhat awkward, overall a solid story.
It's backstory and snark and angst and made me slash Clint/Tony *gg*
Good storyline but him being deaf is way cooler

Baby, I respect your pain, but it will never, ever be as bad as Steve Rogers. Or Logan.

I love this funny big brother-y relationship Steve and Clint have. I'm not crazy about the whole relative-back-from-the-dead deal, but whatever, it's plot. I love that Tony tries to help a brother out, and Steve tries to ground Clint knowing he would never succeed. There's more I love in this book than stuff I don't love, which is great, and frankly, a decent book about Hawkeye is all a girl can expect from t
