I'm no art critic but don't those panels look like drawings from the safety instructional pamphlets you see on airplanes?

Hawkeye once deafened himself with a backfired sonic arrow. As writers change they keep repairing it and bringing it back.

I think thats kind of the point. David Ajas run has been pretty great artwise though, very different.

What would Helen Keller say?

Answer 1: ALWNAALALJGAJAAIAONMAAAL

Answer 2: Nothing.  She is dead.

Answer 3: Is it getting hot in here or is it just me?


This is Fark.  So answer 3 is correct.

Reminds me of the Blue Beetle issue that was in all-Spanish.

In the end, it's worthless and pointless as a floppy, and something to be skimmed over really quickly in the trade.

I guess not being a comic book guy, I don't get what Hawkeye's contribution to the Avengers is. Sure he has an almost mutant ability to aim a bow but then he ran out of arrows and was farked. Black Widow doesn't have any powers either but at least her power is to break up the sausage fest.

Is hawkeye worth reading again? Or is it still rehashing the murder in 6 different issues from 6 different perspectives, or focusing on the least interesting character of the bunch (hawk girl) while also being massively delayed?

I believe that's the reason why Hawkeye is getting canceled. People wanted to read about Hawkeye, not Kateye.

I would have just been happy if they moved the darling story along.

Hawk dude gets killed, and the next 4-5 issues are a retelling of that exact same murder in the perspective of hawkeye, Kate, brother, assassin, and the dog.

Oh right. And it would be a hawkeye thread without ending every sentence in boyo or bro, bro.

Hawkeye was originally deaf or at least hard of hearing at one point... But I think Franklin Richards "cured" that when he brought them back from that Pocket Universe.

Seriously, bro. I don't mind her as a character in the story, but an entire issue devoted to her? I've tried but I can't bring myself to care. I quite like Aja's art, though, so I might pick it up again if they can fix the Clint to Kate ratio.

Ugh.  Guess it is for the best.  I just don't get their fascination with Kate.  Spin off a series with just her if you want to continue it.

I really enjoyed it up to like the pizza dog issue.  Then it just spun its wheels forever starting with the giant break, and then decided it had no clue how to move hawkeyes story forward and went with kate instead, and became immediately shiatty.

I love how we've apparently reached peak-Hawk-guy now that all the "Stop liking what I don't like!" guys are coming out of the woodwork.

It's still a good series with amazing artwork (not as good as Samnee's work on DD, but a close second). The only issue with the um... issues, is that they have an inconsistent release schedule.

It'll be a shame if they cancel it, but if it's because of sales, then they have no one else but themselves to blame for the bad release schedule.

Can you honestly say it's been as good since it switched to Kateeye?

Don't see anyone else here saying the art is bad.  It's still fantastic, it's the story that sucks now.

I wouldn't say the book has bad art, but that particular style just isn't my cup of tea.

Same goes for Daredevil since... well... Kevin Smith left the book.

You are a bad person and you should feel bad. Chris Samnee's DD art is amazing, and Kevin Smith is a writer, so I have no idea wtf you are on about. (Waid's writing on DD during this run has been great as well, but Samnee gets a lot of credit because his stuff is just so damn good).

Anyway, as for Hawkeye, the stories featuring Kate are not bad, it's just that she's not as popular of a character. In normal syndication this isn't a big deal because the stories come out monthly, so you skip a month or two and hopefully the book is someplace where you want to read. The problem with this book in particular is that the publishing schedule has been so erratic that 2-3 stories in a row featuring characters you don't care for feels like an eternity.

I mean, I don't like Kate that much either, but I can't objectively say the stories were bad. And yeah, it'd be more tolerable if I didn't have to wait months to read something I did like.... so I get it.

Anyway, nothing could be as bad as Rick Remender's run on Captain America. What a colossal suck-fest. I'm also not a fan of Sam Wilson being the new Captain America - I think it's farking racist and sends the signal that the only way the black guy can be the top hero is if the white guy dies/moves out of the way for him. Falcon is a hero in his own right and ought to be respected for that. He doesn't need Steve Roger's sloppy seconds.

/off tangent rant, I know... it just really annoys me.

The Smith run creative team was Smith, Quesada, and Palmiotti, and that's the last time the book had big, bold, clean superhero-y art.

After that, the art became this dark, scratchy, sludgy stuff that worked for the tone of the book, but wasn't my cup of tea.

Samnee's DD art, IMO, is too... soft. It feels unfinished. It does work with the book, though, so I have no problems with it.

But, I'd be happy if Rags Morales, Darick Robertson, Steven Sadowski, John Romita Sr., George Perez (and his clone Phil Jiminez), Dan Jurgens, and Jerry Ordway drew everything in comics. Clean, bright, superhero art.

But most anybody is better than whoever they got to draw the first Carol Danvers Captain Marvel run. That's the one time I can ever remember picking up a trade, looking at the "art", and putting it back down because it was so horribly drawn.

Every time in the last decade I've tried to pick up Daredevil it seems like it's been that crap. So I gave up.

Fano: Every time in the last decade I've tried to pick up Daredevil it seems like it's been that crap. So I gave up.


The ONLY daredevil story I've ever liked has been "Hannah's Heart" in the Daredevil: Dark Nights anthology.

Basically, a huge storm freezes NYC, which causes a helicopter carrying a heart for a girl waiting on the transplant list to crash. By chance, Daredevil was in the hospital at the time after he was knocked out cold during the storm as Matt (snow messes his senses, too much static, it seems). He volunteers to go rescue the heart in the middle of the storm as any other way of transportation has grind to a halt.

There's no real villains here, just a guy trying to use his abilities to save a girl, that's it.

I wonder if its an Aja issue or a Fraction issue when it comes to schedule slips. Fraction has been rather consistent on Sex Criminals, although it is common for Image comics to get 2-3 months off breaks between arcs. (which is when they publish the TPBs)

TwistedFark: Anyway, nothing could be as bad as Rick Remender's run on Captain America. What a colossal suck-fest.


Yup. I agree. I don't know why some people just love Remender... (Fear Agent was ok, everything else sucks)

You wanna talk about bad art? Ron Wimberly and Javier Pulido win that with the awful art on She-Hulk. The colorist doesn't help though.

I'm looking forward to Ms. Marvel. And it's the artist from Runaways, so I have no art issues.

But I really wanted to like the new She Hulk book.

And PAD's new X-Factor? Unfortunately, the first trade did nothing for me.
