#22 is the final issuehttp://www.reddit.com/r/comicbooks/comments/2ankzv/its_official_bro_hawkeye_ends_with_22/
“HAWKEYE 19 went off to press this week all drawn, inked, colored, and lettered by Messrs.' Aja, Hollingsworth, and Eliopoulos. It goes on sale July 30th. It's called "The Things What Don't Get Spoke" (oh how Marvel's poor and beleaguered proofreaders love it when you monkey with the Queen's) and follows the Barton Boys after we left them beat up, bloody, shot, and deafened in HAWKEYE... 17? The numbering STILL confuses me; sorry.
This has been shorthanded by me as "the sign language issue."
I worked intensely with Rachel Coleman, an ASL teacher, advocate, creator and host of "Signing Time" and "Baby Signing Time" and, lately, a big hit in our house, "Rachel and the Treeschoolers." It was Rachel's work that first introduced me to American Sign Language in a real way; it was watching her work, when Henry was wee, when it occurred to me that, hey -- ASL is just like comics -- a purely visual language. You could really DO something with that...
There's this thing that happens when you put work out into the world sometimes: you get to meet your heroes. And sometimes, if you're really lucky, you get to work with them a little bit. Rachel, her work, and her amazing family are much beloved here in Ft. DeFraction. I was so happy she agreed to help my tourist-ass out on this one.
Anyway. More on this as it gets close to coming out.
HAWKEYE 20 shouldn't be too far behind. That's the last Annie issue, alas. Fittingly, it's called "The Longish Goodbye." All the threads of Kate's time in Los Angeles have formed a little noose that wants very badly to get around Kate-is-Enough's neck.
HAWKEYE 21 is in David's hands as we speak. I tried to call it "The F Word" but they didn't let me, even when I told them but the "F word" in this case is 'finale.' So it's called "Rio Bravo." The last page of this issue is the inverse opposite of the last page of 17(?). Anyway David is gonna CRUSH this one. I mean he crushes EVERY one but this one especially.
HAWKEYE 22 is called "El Dorado." It's gonna be longer than twenty pages. I shouldn't say how much longer until I get final confirmation. I'm dragging my feet a little on wrapping it up but... well, it'll be done this week. Maybe today, maybe tomorrow, and then that's it for me. Hard to say goodbye I guess (funny; I drag my feet on all my last issues). Anyway there's a Marvel editorial summit some time next week and I want those guys to have it beforehand so... yeah, time's up.*
