First Look at Hawkeye #6!

Kelly Cassidy 11/29/2012 Reviews 1 Comment

Yes, I’m posting about Hawkeye again. It seems to always be Hawkeye-this, Hawkeye-that. But that’s because the character has been one of my favorite guys for years! Here’s a guy who accidentally started as a villain, who redeemed himself by being an Avenger and even led the expansion team within the pages of West Coast Avengers, and then gave another group of villains a chance at redemption in Thunderbolts! The challenge has been because he has no powers, it’s his personality and his drive which makes him a strong character. Although I have criticized the book in the past, I am not planning on dropping it anytime soon.

And because of that, I am very proud to announce that Marvel has given us a quick peek into what we can expect with issue #6 of Hawkeye! ComicBooked.com has recently covered some special artists and proceeds for Hawkeye #7,  but we can show you now what comes before that story and right after the current story of “The Tape”.

HAWKEYE #6 First Look!

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Hawkeye #6, continuing the all-new ongoing series from the creative team of writer Matt Fraction and artist David Aja! Clint Barton is preparing for the Holidays! After the conclusion of The Tape, Clint is in dire need of a vacation, but will his break from action turn out as planned?

Fans and critics agree, Hawkeye is a smash hit!

“Super fun!” – Kelly Thompson, ComicBookResources.com

“This is a fantastic comic book that mixes action, mystery, and just the right amount of sheer insanity.” – Benjamin Bailey, IGN.com

“This is a series that needs to be read.” – Tony Guerrero, Comicvine.com

Also, Marvel is pleased to announce that Hawkeye #3 has sold out at Diamond and will be returning to stores with Hawkeye #3 Second Printing Variant!

So, let’s look at that above… Issues 1 and 2 going to a 3rd printing, and #3 going to a second? Yes, this book is good. I said it before: as a standalone book, if you know nothing about the character, this is a great book. It’s a fun story, it has humor in it (see issue #3’s “Hawk Block”) , and the artwork astounded me. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s definitely worth checking out!

And speaking of that, let’s take a look at what we can expect from issue #6…
