Men of Marvel Review: Hawkeye Vol 2: Little Hits by Fraction & AJA











This isn't your Avengers Hawkeye. Though there are some elements of the movie version of the character, Fraction and Aja make this series a hit thanks to a blend of humor and action. This volume however deals with a lot of the repercussions from Hawk’s previous  actions.

There are a gang of pissed off mobsters giving him the “get out of town or die” ultimatum, A shady damsel that comes back into Clint’s life and leaves him in distress,and  a scary clown hit man.

The art continues to be stunning on this series, its almost a character all it’s own. I also loved the continued addition of Kate ( also Hawkeye) to the series.

This volume however  was a hit & miss experience for me. The issues worked fine as stand alone vignettes but I didn't really feel like anything really progressed forward. I get that Clint is a  bit of a screw-up and immature but I feel at some point he needs to get his sh*t together!

I’m on board for future stories but I’m hopping for a little more focus from the character in the future trades .

I get your frustration about the hit or miss feeling. I just read season 8 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the first comic run). They writers were definitely trying to figure out what they wanted to do with the series because sometimes the issues would flow into one another and sometimes it was just a bit kooky.
