With Hawkeye #21 (originally solicited for June, actually coming out who the fuck knows when) carrying the title "The Finale Part 1," the end of Matt Fraction and David Aja and Annie Wu's universally acclaimed book was imminent. In fact, if the book didn't take so many six month long publishing breaks with no warning, it probably would have run its course by now. In any case, Fraction tweeted this yesterday:
Jeez guess who doesn't want to finish his last #hawkguy script huh? Yap yap yap— BUTT STUFF WEREWOLF (@mattfraction) July 10, 2014
And the world wept.
But is there hope for the series yet? I mean, if the final issue never actually gets published due to inexplicable delays, then, technically, the series never ends, right? For more info on this, we asked the same source Marvel uses to decide when issues of Hawkeye will be published, and it told us:
Reply hazy try again.
What? No, that can't be right. Let's try again.
Ask again later.
The hell?! *shakes vigorously*
Better not tell you now.
Dammit! What about now?!
Cannot predict now.
Arrggh! *tosses the source across the room*
Concentrate and ask again.
Well folks, it looks like we're just gonna have to wait and see. If nothing else, at least you've got plenty of time to make your peace with it.
