Despite being an Avenger, Clint Barton is a really just a regular guy who kills time during a slow night at their headquarters by playing cards with other superheroes. It doesn’t seem to occur to him that hanging out with his ex-wife, his current girlfriend, and an old flame at the same time might not be a great idea. It’s also an especially awkward scene when a beautiful woman that he recently slept with shows up at the door begging for help because she’s wanted for murder. And yet Clint wonder ...more

Hawkeye trying to hook up his DVD player was pretty awesome. The ethical dilemma he wrestles with promises to have future consequences. I can't get over how well the art fits the story and how much Matt Fraction makes me care about Hawkeye and the supporting cast. Bro.

I gave Hawkeye, Vol. 1: My Life as a Weapon (Hawkeye 5 stars, so what am I supposed to do now that I've read Little Hits, and it's even better?

Fraction is doing the impossible with this title.
With all the jumping around this volume does, I should hate it. Really. I'm not known for my tolerance of the confusing or trippy. If I have to go back and re-read pages because something didn't add up, I normally get pissed off.
You can sort of compare me to one of those giant dinosaurs with the itty bitty

“I wonder If Anybody’s Ever Been Fired from the Avengers Before”

In this second volume, Clint Barton aka Hawkeye struggles with personal and professional/super-heroic issues that don’t differ all that much from those he experienced in the first volume, yet the storytelling felt less organic to me this time around. Tone, style and even content change rapidly from one page to the next in places, partly as a result of fill-in artwork. I also didn't find this second volume as funny as the first one,

Hawkeye is an amazing comic, pure and simple. It might be THE Marvel comic to be reading at the moment over other current greats like Mark Waid’s Daredevil, Jason Aaron’s Wolverine and the X-Men, and Brian Michael Bendis’ All-New X-Men. And it’s about Hawkeye of all characters – Hawkeye!

Well, it’s about 2 Hawkeyes actually, Clint Barton and Kate Bishop. Both are kinda human car crashes. Clint can’t seem to get his life together, has all sortsa women troubles (including his protégé, Kate), as we

I felt the first volume in this story was better. This was okay. There is a lot going on and I wasn’t entirely sure about some of the plot points. Hawkeye is having some girl trouble and it appears that he is dating multiple women. There’s that.

Clint is also having trouble with his apartment building he owns and these Russian (I think) mob guys that say mostly bro that want to take the building and they gang up on Clint. It seems a bit silly, but it’s alright. Also, Clint is looking really rough

2.5 stars

Yeah, I dunno.

Not too much to say really, just a few points:

- As long as David Aja is doing the art it's awesome. Every other guest artist they get on this title? Sucks.

- Kate Bishop is kind of a bitch.

- I'm sorry, but Clint Barton is not that stupid, or that much of a loser. Next thing you know they'll try convincing us Kyle Rayner is really Green Lantern or something.

- Not jazzed to continue this series really. Too bad.

Bullet Review:

This was just so much fun and so clever. Great characters, great story, excellent art style and layout (I love the issue from the dog's POV), and in general fabulous.

I'm not sure what I was thinking before about not following this series. The episodic (kinda) nature of the series is its saving grace.

Okay before we begin both Kate and Clint are wrong about the best Bruce in rock and roll is... it’s Bruce Dickinson! Okay, now that I’ve said that, it’s time for the review.

Just like volume 1, this is a collection of various short Hawkeye stories.

Most of the stories are pretty good, fun stories.
I really like the art style. It’s not detailed at all but it’s fun, it looks good and really works for this book!
Kate is still a great character in this volume!

As great as Matt Fraction’s work on Hawkeye has been so far, I can’t help but feel this was all a part of a plan to have the character’s name changed to “Hawkguy”, which I’m 100% in support of.

Oh, and to also introduce Pizza Dog as the next Avenger.

At the urging of Spider-man and Wolverine, Clint Barton (a.k.a Hawkeye/Hawkguy) decides to take some time to himself over the holidays to repair his battle-damaged personal life. Unfortunately, when you’re an Avenger, time off is more of an abstract c

Ok this one was a little bit more better than the first volume for me, I really did love and enjoyed it much more better.

Are all women this scary? I mean, I know that Barton has it coming, but women are SCARY!

I'm really enjoying the shiny jumpsuit guys. The even say 'bro to the women. That kind of dumbness just screams out, "Kick Me!" Thankfully, all the women have it under control.

Barton has a good heart. Too bad his head is kinda soggy and slagged.

Here come the clowns!

First of all, Lucky the Pizza Dog rocks!

This is the first Marvel Now title I’ve read and if the rest are this good, I’m hooked. Hawkeye is a Marvel character that’s been around for a long time. He started off as a villain; joined the Avengers and undermined Captain America’s authority (often); due to feelings of inadequacy he became the giant man, Goliath; went back to the bow and arrow; was part of the West Coast Avengers, the Thunderbolts, the Great Lakes Avengers; became Ronin; and went back

This is just insanely good. If any superhero comic is a total package, it's this one. Great writing involving superheroes that act like heroes, talk like people, and have realistic but not overwhelming flaws? Check. Brilliant art that gives the characters expression and individuality? Check. Eye-catching colors that are subtle yet unique? Check. Covers that make this title pop on the shelf? Check, a thousand times check.

Of course I'm going to love Hawkguy. Who doesn't love Hawkguy?

I guess his Ex-Wife, Work Wife, Friend Girl, and Kate. And Grills really doesn't love Hawkguy.

Russian mobsters, a creepy-ass mime assassin, a flood... Only one man can save Hawkguy now.

That man is Pizza Dog.

Matt Fraction’s “Hawkeye, Vol. 2: Little Hits” is a collection of issues #6-11 of Hawkeye comic book series. Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye, is the best marksman on Earth and is one of the Avengers. However, when he is not on duty, his life is everything but heroic: Clint has girl issues, often gets into trouble and makes the worst decisions possible. Good news: Hawkeye’s talented but spoiled protégé Kate Bishop, Lucky the Pizza Dog and a mysterious redhead are back too! And, of c

Hawkeye has never been an Avenger who appealed to me in the comics. Compared to Super Spies, Super Soldiers, Asgardian Gods, raging Hulks and men in flying armour what kind of a character was he? But then I saw the movie version, saw the tv cartoon Avengers Assemble and saw the usefulness of a character with a bow and arrow.

Hawkeye grounds the team in reality. He's the normal guy with special skills. He doesn't have the strength or speed of Captain America, but he is even more in touch with the

As the name of this collection says, it is a trade of one-offs and short arcs. The stories still work toward the overarching plot and it allowed regular series artist David Aja to take a break and catch-up on the schedule since the shorter stories employed guest artists like Steve Lieber, Francesco Francavilla and mock covers/pin-ups by Annie Wu.

The collection has several wonderful stories but none stand out like the Pizza Dog issue in number 11. Told almost of entirely from Lucky the dog's poin

This second volume collects issues 6-11 of the new comic series, and to be honest it's a bit of a mixed bag.

The first story (issue 7) is probably the best of the lot as Hawkeye helps one of his tenants to evacuate his elderly father from Rockaway Beach during Hurricane Sandy. It's a great story, filled with moments of grief and loss and Grills (the tenant) father finds himself unable to let go following the death of his wife. Hawkeye plays something of a secondary role here - he's the hero here,
Now THIS is why writer Matt Fraction is a genius, and this series is one of the most critically acclaimed Marvel comics in the last 6-7 years! This is how you do a character-centric solo series of an ages old superhero with literally hundreds and hundreds of backstories and histories, and still make it seem perfectly fresh, original and something brand new to a reader.

I've read the first volume couple of days ago, and while it was very entertaining with a distinctly different way of presenting

Wow, this is one of the more experimental comic runs I've ever read. In six issues, we get:
Issue 6: A "six days in the life of Clint" issue that is told out of linear order, featuring cameos of Tony Stark, Spider-Man, and Wolverine.
Issue 7: A one-shot issue of Clint and Kate separately helping others during Hurricane Sandy.
Issue 8: The return of Penny, interjected with femme fatale comic covers lampshading Penny's character.

If you're not reading Hawkeye yet, you're doing comics wrong. You're missing out on one of the best comics currently being produced.

Matt Fraction is an odd writer, but when he is on form, he is superb, as he is here. His story scoots along nicely, telling scenes from different points of view and bouncing around in time to give a very unique perspective overall.

The art and colours from David Aja and Matt Hollingsworth are absolutely top notch. Minimalist but expressive, and gorgeous to behold. Th
Not as good as the first one. Just wanna punch Clint for hurting Jessica's feelings. I'm also starting to hate how he gets beat up constantly.

Much the same awesomeness we got from the first volume. Was scratching my head all night last night trying to figure out why I didn't believe the hype behind this book. Figured it out, finally. It's because of Hawkeye. I just don't care about him. And even though this series is in the top 10 books of he last decade, I still don't care about him. I care about this series. Not just because it's Hawkeye though, but because it's Fraction. The man is so hit or miss with his books it's hard to take an ...more
Clint Barton continues to be a trainwreck in everyday life. And Kate Bishop continues to care about him even though he’s really kind of a loser in many ways. And Clint has a really great dog. That pretty much sums up book two. And the whole run could probably summed up with, “Clint Barton makes poor life choices.”

I’m not 100% into this comic, but I do enjoy it, and Fraction and Aja are certainly very creative, funny, and willing to take risks. Sometimes I find that their style of storytelling do

I love the art of these comics, and Clint's smart mouth, and his weird friendship with Kate Bishop. I loved that one of the issues collected in this TPB was told from the POV of a dog. But I guess I'm revenged on my partner for her not liking Cherie Priest's Bloodshot. It's enjoyable enough to read, but I'm not overcome. The way of telling the story doesn't really jive with me.

But I'm totally sold on Natasha being Clint's 'work-wife', and I enjoy that Kate is simply classified as 'Kate'. And hey

"How he got started in comics: In 1983, when Fraction was 7 years old and growing up in Kansas City, Mo., he became fascinated by the U.S. invasion of Grenada and created his own newspaper to explain the event. "I've always been story-driven, telling stories with pictures and words," he said.

Education and first job: Fraction never graduated from college. He stopped half a semester short of an art
