It wasn’t too long ago Matt Fraction gave us the low down on what we can expect from this issue, Hawkeye #9, which you can find here. Fraction and David Aja have brought a very real life book to people’s attention. Hawkeye is pretty much everything Gambit is trying to be, but it just doesn’t work. Now a Gambit book written by Matt Fraction…that might be something I could get into. Here is the official press release:
Your First Look At HAWKEYE #9!
All eyes are on the Arrowed Avenger as the critically acclaimed creative team of Matt Fraction and David Aja put Clint face to face with the cold hard reality that someone is out to take him out in Hawkeye #9! Say you have to kill the Avengers, make a list – who do you kill first? The regular guy. In this action packed issue, the women in Hawkeye’s life get involved. That’s right, Black Widow, Mockingbird, Spider-Woman and Kate Bishop attempt to tie up all the loose threads that may point to Clint’s secret attacker! But can they find out who’s leading the track suits before they claim another victim?
Fans and critics agree – Hawkeye is a smash hit!
