Hawkeye, Vol. 1: My Life as a Weapon (Marvel NOW!) by Matt Fraction
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Collects Hawkeye #1-5 & Young Avengers Presents #6.
What a fun comic! I liked the flat artwork with its muted colours, the humour, the down to earth, quirky storyline. We do have an Avenger here without flashy superpowers and snark and that heart of gold…
Him living in an apartment building in New York without any other Avengers had me a little confused, but I am not really up-to-date and just jumped in, because the comic looked interesting.
Hawkeye #4 and #5:
Unfortunately the artwork changed with Issues 4 and 5 (The Tape). The characters looked different, cleaner and with less personality. Kate looked so different, I had trouble recognizing her. Pity. The style of the first three issues was a lot grittier and more original.
The story was still good, though.
Young Avengers Presents #6:
The feel and look changed again. Quite a lot. I did not like it or the story of the last issue much. Kate looked like a bimbo, the story was simplistic and not very interesting.
Hawkeye #1-3: 5 stars
Hawkeye #4-5: 3.5 stars
Young Avengers Presents #6: 2 stars
