Bro, I'll read it as soon as I get home from work tonight, bro.

Bro, I see, bro. When I lived in Kansas City, my comic shop was just a few blocks from my place and on my way to work. Now my comic shop is 10 miles from my place and 12 miles from work. Since I pick up my books on my way to work on Wednesday, it doesn't leave me a lot of time to read them, bro. :-(

Bro, that's the new Clown, bro, presumably somehow related to the Circus of Crime. Origin issue is next issue, bro.

This continues to be one of the coolest and most off-beat comics Marvel have ever done. I think the fact that Marvel has a book like this is what really sets it apart from DC at the moment. DC has some good books, but they are all tonally very similar, the only one even approaching Hawkeye’s level of style and difference is Dial H, and it’s about to be cancelled. This issue picks up where #8 left off and shows how each of the women in Clint Barton’s life deal with the surprise appearance of Darlene. Hawkeye has always been one of Marvel’s horndogs, so it was cool to see how each of these ladies still play a role in his life. This is all conveyed with the usual amazing panel layouts and stylish pacing of David Aja, and the cool dialogue from Fraction (which of course includes plenty of ‘bros’, bro). This book just looks amazing, I love it.

I think the best segments in this issue were the Spider-Woman (I liked how this issue didn’t mention Natasha, Bobbi or Jessica’s codenames at all) one, which was probably the closest his title has gotten to sincere emotion, and then the Kate Bishop segment to close things out, which was funny. I say that closed things out, but instead, Fraction hits us with a punch to the gut, as Grills, the man who coined ‘Hawkguy’, is shot by the mysterious new ‘Clown’ villain. Noooo! RIP Grills Bro.

This. All of this! Hawkeye feels like a wonderfully brilliant little indie title, that just coincidentally exists within the Marvel Universe and features Marvel Characters.

There must be no "Geoff Johnsing" of this "Clown character. He killed Grills, he stays a villain forever! :smt013

Of these scenes I think I enjoyed Mockingbird's the best. The again, it's Mockingbird and I like the character so much that Marvel could probably put her in a book consisting of nothing but face shot panels with her saying one one and I'd still enjoy it -- well OK maybe not, but you get the point.

Black Widow's was pretty good too.

"Oh no."

"Oh da." :-D
