Hawkeye #9 Review (SPOILERS)

Bro. Seriously. Seriously, bro.




Clint is just having a bad day. Not only is he a marked man by the Russian mob, but he is also having some lady problems. In this issue, we are shown the ladies in the life of Hawkeye: Black Widow, Spider-Woman and Mockingbird. On top of them, his fling Darlene once again needs his help.

Unfortunately for Clint, Darlene asks for his help with a kiss, which happened to be in front of all three of the aforementioned ladies at the Avengers mansion. Darlene's actions get Clint broken up with Spider-Woman, and forces Black Widow to track Darlene down to figure out what Clint has been up to. Also if breaking up with his girlfriend wasn't bad enough, Mockingbird hands over some divorce papers.

The only people still on Clint's side are his under-study Kate and his neighbor Gil, or should I say Grills? Speaking of Grills, his presence in the series has come to end in a shocking cliffhanger, which introduces the “Clown.” I am not sure what this “Clown” is up to, but he doesn't seem to be in the mood for making jokes.

Awesome art in this issue starting with the cover, which displays Kate Bishop sporting an “I <3 Hawkeye” t-shirt. There is also some great paneling when Black Widow tracks down Darlene and for Mockingbird's run in with some bros.

Issue nine is another great book in a series that has been excellent from the start. Matt Fraction has done a great job making Clint just another guy in Brooklyn that has everyday problems. The writing is very witty and really represents what life is like for Hawkeye when he is not an Avenger. This is for sure another must read.

I wasn't surprised that Jess and Clint broke up given current Marvel's anti-relationship stance.

We all know Clint and Jessica weren't going to last as a couple. It was only a matter of time before Clint messed this up.
