That there, is some good readings, bro.

Seriously, I don't know how Fraction did it but I really like this comic. I will go out on a limb and say its the best title marvel is publishing right now.

This book better reach at 25 issues. I'm hoping for a lot long run, like 100+, but I'm worried it will be cancelled before that.

This is not a dream, this thread is real. If you are not reading Hawkeye you are missing out...

Hawkeye is awesome, one of the coolest comics out there, fantastic art from Aja, fun experimentation from both Aja and Fraction, snappy dialogue and done-in-one stories that for once feel complete.

Hawkeye is undoubtedly the best comic coming out from Marvel now, and it has since issue #1.

Hawkeye is not a character I particularly even enjoy, but this book completely changed that. The stories are fun and cool. Aja steps up his artistic game in this book, giving us some major storytelling through his visuals.

And bro, I'm so glad those guys came back, bro. They remind me of the bad guys in that A-Ha video, Take On Me.

i'm kind of shocked that Bubba likes this comic, since it stars his 'favorite' character ever...

But i will chime in and say i'm loving this book as well.

I just can't believe a Fraction book is really good unless he admits to using performance enhancers or something.

I didn't get this because I don't care for Fraction. After all of the reviews I've read, I'm interested, but my shop sells out of the less than 10 copies they get instantly.

I've thought about looking elsewhere, but meh.

I loathe Hawkeye, and I love this book. Fraction has got the touch with this title.

Bro.

Why are you talking like you're from Woodbridge, bro?

I might check this out when it gets paperbacked.

It took me a while to get into Hawkeye. The whole "bro" thing with the Tracksuit Draculas struck me as the "weirdness for the sake of weirdness" style of "bad Fraction." I think it became so overused that I actually started finding it funny, like a Homer-and-the-rakes type situation. Issue 3 is where shit really came together for me.

Any archer comic where the bow is actually drawn back to "anchor" on the cheek works for me. Any bowman will tell you, unless you anchor, you can kiss accuracy goodbye. Usually artists draw that right hand anywhere.

Unfortunately, I didn't start this book when it first came out but I intend to get the trade when it comes out. Until then, I guess I will start buying the single issues and wait to read them until I can get caught up.
