Is Hawkeye a "dark" book? I can't say I'm a fan of darker stories like Uncanny X-Force. I like the more light hearted and fun books.

Here's my abbreviated review..

Hawkeye #1-6

Hawkeye, where to start?

Hawkeye has heart. Something that seems to be lacking from a lot of today's books. Don't get me wrong some books are good, great even, but they are what they are. Some are "adult" titles, some are just all out action, and some are just too wordy--I'm looking at you Bendis Avengers. Hawkeye is a mixed-bag book. It has action, it has a bit of romance, it has humor, and it has---heart. I miss heart in comic books. It also isn't padded for TPBs.

This book is about style....style with substance. Artists Aja and Pulido are acquired tastes to be sure, but the page design, layout and color (by Hollingsworth) are splendid. The elements all work together, and just flow smoothly. Fraction also shows a firm understanding of Hawkeye and Clint Barton's voices, and they are basically the same. But this book is all about Clint Barton--which is awesome. This is about Clint Barton's life , and how Hawkeye (and to a greater extent Clint Barton) screws it all up continually. Clint is a man of excesses-he plays hard, he loves hard, lives hard, works hard, and even his kindness kills. Clint is dysfunctional at being Clint, but he has fun trying to be Clint. Think more Matt Helm than James Bond.

Now, we get to Kate Bishop. Kate is gonna be a star (go buy her first appearances now). Kate is impossible not to like. Fraction does a good job of balancing her personality, and never makes her feel uneven and inconsistent. She's just Kate, and you'll love her, because she's not Natasha-not Bobbi-- she's just Kate. Did I say Kate's gonna be a star?

Just waiting for Lucky the dog to get his spotlight issue.

Also, don't get me wrong this book has plenty of Hawkeye, but only just enough. This book is about Clint, and that's why it is so damn good. That, and because it has--Heart. The heart might just be a bit more purple than red though!

Yeah, this isn't a book by book review, but I don't wanna spoil.

Hm, sounds interesting. I'm not a big hawkeye fan, but I did like Kate Bishop in Young Avengers.

What about Daredevil, Gambit, Captain Marvel, and Deadpool? I've heard mixed reviews on all of these except Daredevil.

My brother-in-law has been on me to read Hawkeye. He raves about it whenever we talk comics. I'm disappointed I missed the first few issues so now I'll grab the trade at some point.

Gambit isn't that good. Captain Marvel was okay, just read the first issue and the art turned me off it.

I'm not a Deadpool fan. Only Fabian Nicieza and Joe Kelly were ever able to write him properly.

Waid's Daredevil is good.

I love Waid's Daredevil. Also, too bad that they stopped the most recent run of The Punisher by Rucka. That is another fantastic comic that just ended.

BTW, Does anyone know if the Winter Soldier and Agent Venom (Flash Thompson) comics are good?

I have enjoyed Winter Soldier. It has a similar feel to parts of Brubakers Captain America run. Guice's art is dark and gritty, and Brubaker is definitely at home writing espionage tails rather than straight up super hero adventures.

Never checked out Venom. Nice idea but nothing I want to spend $3.99 a month to follow.

Loved Rucka's Punisher, and I'm not a Punisher fan.


Brubaker's Winter Soldier was a good read, but his time on the book ends this month. The new writer, Jason LaTour, and artist, Nic Klein, take over next month.

So Cable and the X-Force keeps getting better and better. Third issue and I'm hooked. FF and Fantastic Four are probably being dropped. Good books, but I can't say I like the direction and Id rather have that money for something else. Indestructible Hulk looks like it'll really pick up next issue, but I may drop it when Simonson shows up. He's a good artist, but it really belongs in a 90's comic book if it looks anything like teaser.

I finally found the Skottie Young Baby variant cover of Uncanny Avengers yesterday. Is the third issue of this series even out yet? It's pretty interesting although I personally think Red Skull should have died in the 60s and stayed dead.

And finally, I can't find a list of all the Marvel NOW Skottie Young covers. Does anyone have a list?
