Whats up peeps!
Pardon the late post, this has been something of a mad week but as of today things return to a sense of normality.
Now to business!
This week I’d like to talk a little bit about what has quickly become my favorite book under the Marvel banner.
Hawkeye written by Matt Fraction is a book I bought on a whim when it first came out and instantly I was hooked. Fractions writing combined with David Aja’s regular run on art make Hawkeye a must read. It follows Clint Barton on his days off from The Avengers as he tackles normal, day to day problems.
It’s less spectacular action and more witty dialogue but the action does come and is pretty freakin awesome when it arrives.
The thing that really struck me prior to picking up this series was how little I cared about Hawkeye before. I always thought he was kinda cool (especially in the Ultimates) but he wasn’t a character I would get excited about getting a solo comic. Matt Fraction has turned Clint into a very likeable dude who can sometimes be a bit of a jerk, but his hearts in the right place.
The series also boasts an incredibly witty sense of humour and I often find myself chuckling away for a good portion of each issue.
The only downside of me talking about this is that I am NOT a professional reviewer of stuff and I really feel like I’m under-selling just how good this book is. Seriously if you haven’t read this yet, do yourself a massive favour and go pick it up!
