Epic thread.

And I can't believe Brian is complaining about sticking body parts up asses.

Hawkeye: Blindshot #1

“Blah, blah, Crazy, Blah.” Quote of the year.

Anyhow, I thought I would hate this. I am not a huge Hawkeye fan and I read none of the rest of the series. Surprisingly enough, I didn’t. It’s a decent read, even if Hawkeye’s come back during the fight in the issue is not explained at all and makes little sense (especially when he catches the arrow!).

Giving Marvel’s sharp shooting hero trouble seeing is interesting. I couldn’t quite reconicile the artist's interpretation of what Bart was seeing with the written explanation of how he was maintaining in the battle, but it is a good idea and wondering about Daredevil’s powers was a nice touch.

The recap page is unneeded. The story does a fine job of letting the reader know the score and that is a good thing. I would have rather had another page of story than wordiness.

As good as that quote is at the top of my review, the last line was groan inspiring. A little too on the nose for me.

The art is a mixed bag. It is a neat take on manga influence, showing hints of stuff like Fist of the North Star and some more fringe titles from across the ocean. However, the design on Clint’s brother’s costume is dumb looking and the coloring is all wrong in some places. However, Clint and Zemo look great. As an aside, what the hell was going on with Steve’s shield, is it all translucent now?

Thank god for MRRC. Otherwise I couldn’t have read this as we didn’t get any shelf copies (as I surmised) and I still bet people have a hard time finding this.

Story 3
Art 3

Overall 6

Good one.

I was just trying to do some gentle ribbing, I honestly like both Marvel and DC. Both have good and bad, just like the Bin Laden family. :smt102

I support Punchy's recommendation. I would like to try and issue of War Machine before ordering the eventual trade.


X-Force (which was good again this month) had a full issue of War Machine in the back, where Rhodey gets his sweet new armor.

An X-Force book without Cable carrying guns bigger than elephants isn't an X-Force book I want to read.

Happily, I don't even think Deadpool was in this issue.

Wait, I thought you were the indie comix nerd? :?

How can I get you to start reading THUNDER Agents monthly, John Snow?
