Kate Bishop is awesome. ♥ I love the parts drawn by Davia Aja and Annie Wu. The artwork is so great and the way I love it for these two characters. ♥ The stories itselves have been great too. Kate in L.A. and trying to figure herself out and stumbling over things (I'm pretty sure, I figured out how it's possible that Phil Coulson is still alive without having seen a single minute of AoS) and finding some friends.

And Clint? OMG, Clint. *hugs him so much* I love that they actually drew sign language and have blank speak bubbles for when there is no sign language or Clint has his back to a speaker. Yeah, it made some things more difficult to understand for someone who doesn't sign but most of it has been understandable anyways. Also, yeah! for showing Clint with hearing aids. Can I now please have deaf Clint Barton as MCU canon? Pretty please?

    Having just re-read the entirety of Fraction's Hawkeye run, I'm sitting here in awe. I can't believe a comic like this was released under a major superhero publisher. Every single detail in this series feels brand new and totally different than anything Marvel has ever done before (and most other publishers, for that matter). I've rarely read a comic that excels more at straight-up VISUAL STORYTELLING. All comics do this, of course, but not like this. Between the Pizza Dog issue in volume 1 and Having just re-read the entirety of Fraction's Hawkeye run, I'm sitting here in awe. I can't believe a comic like this was released under a major superhero publisher. Every single detail in this series feels brand new and totally different than anything Marvel has ever done before (and most other publishers, for that matter). I've rarely read a comic that excels more at straight-up VISUAL STORYTELLING. All comics do this, of course, but not like this. Between the Pizza Dog issue in volume 1 and the issue in this one about deafness, Fraction and Aja have utilized the visual movement of reading a comic in a way that feels boundary breaking, not to mention inspiring. I read those issues mouth agape, completely in love with them. Those alone are worth the price of admission. So then the rest is just a bonus, I guess. Fraction's minimalist, non-linear approach to the storytelling in this series is highly rewarding for a reader who stays for the long haul. Tiny details revealed in one issue will come to matter much more down the line. Moments from earlier issues will repeat in later ones with brand-new context, making you see them in a totally different light. It's incredible, and uses its relatively small stakes (for the Marvel Universe, anyway) to tell a more human story than we typically get from the publisher. Now, I will say, my only real hangup with the series is the Kate Bishop storyline. It doesn't feel anywhere near as finely-crafted as the Clint Barton storyline, so whenever the book alternates back to Kate's adventure, I found myself reading it very fast just to get back to the Clint stuff. Not to say the Kate story is BAD. It isn't. It just feels a lot more standard than Clint's storyline, and has some plot holes and huge coincidences that are hard to look past. It's like you're listening to The Beatles, and someone suddenly puts on Electric Light Orchestra. It's fine, but, c'mon. Put The Beatles back on. In any case, this is by far my favorite Marvel comic I've read in years. You don't even have to be a Marvel Head to enjoy it. It's just a fantastic example of what this medium can do, and deserves to be remembered for decades to come.

    This book felt similar to the first where you had some good issues but some real bores. But each issue does have unique visuals and the story of what an avenger does on their time off is pretty fun. I actually think has it stuck to Clint Barton in his apartment, it would have been a lot more engaging. But the final issue does deliver a sensational finale, reminiscent of Year One. Overall I applaud Fractions attempt to do something different. Aja is a great artist and the overall book is good.

Sometimes, a break is what you need to refocus yourself on the things that matter to you most.

Being a superhero without any special supernatural power is a burden that some heroes aren’t able to carry quite easily. Sometimes, a break is what you need to refocus yourself on the things that matter to you most. For Clint Barton, his depression has been stronger than him and it doesn’t help when his homeless brother rings him up looking for help. For Kate Bishop, it’s tough to renounce her role as a Young Avenger while sharing a superhero identity with an Avenger but her willpower pushes her to leave New York for Los Angeles where she could potentially create her own opportunities. Writer Matt Fraction (known for The Invincible Iron Man, The Immortal Iron Fist, and Sex Criminals) returns with artist David Aja (known for The Immortal Iron Fist, and Daredevil) to deliver the final story arcs to their Hawkeye run before handing it over to writer Jeff Lemire and artist Ramón Pérez for their own take on the bow-and-arrow duo. What is Hawkeye (Vol. 2) about? Collecting Hawkeye #12-22 and Hawkeye Annual #1, this second deluxe edition out of three sends Kate Bishop and Clint Barton on separate yet parallel adventures as trouble still finds them at every street corner. Kate Bishop is thus off to Los Angeles to establish a new routine in her life with the establishment of Kate Bishops Investigations. This life-changing foray in private investigation brings her arch-nemesis Madame Masque knocking at her door looking for revenge. Meanwhile, in New York, Clint Barton has the surprise arrival of his brother Barney as well as the return of Clown and the Tracksuit Draculas who look to gain control on Clint’s building for their own malicious intentions. Too proud to realize it beforehand, both Hawkeyes learn the hard way that help isn’t always bad. Young, clever, brash, arrogant, and skillful. Kate Bishop’s character gets the development she deserves in this volume and which transforms her into one of the most entertaining heroes yet. Similar to her mentor, she doesn’t enjoy asking for help and she gains her experience as a hero through overconfidence and a very impressive set of skills. While this second deluxe volume does allow fans to discover her character even more, Clint Barton is not completely forgotten or overshadowed as he goes through hell to protect the people he loves despite his woes. Following what he went through in My Life as a Weapon and Little Hits, he now shows us what it’s like to be a hero for his community rather than the world. Similar to the first volume, the artwork continues to be incredibly original and entertaining, although it does require a bit of getting used to at first. In the end, it simply grows on you. The panels on each page are usually clearly-defined without any creative and overzealous attempts at going beyond the structure. The colours are usually thematic, with a certain tone privileged in each issue, especially when focused on Clint Barton’s story. Kate Bishop’s adventures were usually much more explosive and colourful, which isn’t too surprising considering her playful personality and her adventures in Los Angeles. I do have to admit that the first issue (Hawkeye #17) was a bit unnecessary and didn’t fit in too much with the overall volume as it offered a cartoonish story where Clint dozes off and imagines a life as super-dogs. The issue drawn by Javier Pulido (Hawkeye Annual #1) was also off-putting with a less-than-stellar artwork but the story remained heavily important to the arc, making it hard to completely disregard. The constant flipping between both Clint Barton’s and Kate Bishop’s story was also a bit unsettling since the artwork changes accordingly but nothing flagrant enough to spoil the quality of Matt Fraction’s and David Aja’s Hawkeye run. Hawkeye (Vol. 2) is a diverting and riveting adventure where street-level heroes discover the wonders that come of solidarity.

The issues in this collection bounce back and forth in story from Clint in New York, battling the track suit mafia, to Kate in LA, trying to survive after her father cut off her credit cards. There are so many delightful wrinkles in the two character arcs that made me not want to stop reading. Barney, Clint's brother, comes to town to help out... but after a fight, he winds up in a wheelchair and Clint is deafened. Kate, on the other hand, tries to sell her services as a superhero and only ends up making some new friends and attracting the attention of Madam Masque. Yikes! I loved the character development. I loved the ASL dialogue. I loved the connections and complications. I loved the new characters. And I loved the unwinable situation that my heroes still manage to win. It was everything I love about comics. I just finished it, and now I can't wait to read it again.

    Awesome conclusion to Fraction and Aja's superb Hawkeye storyline. Annie Wu's art on Kate Bishops backup storyline is fitting for her character. Awesome conclusion to Fraction and Aja's superb Hawkeye storyline. Annie Wu's art on Kate Bishops backup storyline is fitting for her character.

    Matt Fraction's run on Hawkeye explores the everyday struggles of Clint Barton's personal life when he's not busy doing Avenger things.

Hawkeye is the underdog of the Avengers, he has no superpowers or notable abilities, he's just the guy in a costume that knows how to sling arrows. There's some trouble brewing in the new apartment complex he's recently moved into. His lovable neighbors are being threatened and harassed by a gang of mobsters who took control of the apartment and are running everyone out with unfair prices. Clint takes matters into his own hands and defends his new friends with everything he's got all while battling crippling doubt, depression and regular guy problems. Meanwhile, Clint's fellow Hawkeye Kate Bishop gets into some trouble herself. Tired of Clint's negative attitude and pushing people away, she walks out on him in pursuit of her own freelance career as a crimefighter in Los Angeles. She takes down thugs, gets the stuffing kicked out of her and gets herself wrapped up in some hilarious antics. Though she gets into some serious trouble, she makes some irreplaceable friends from unexpected places before reuniting with Clint once more after working out their respective issues. This is the first Marvel comic I've ever read and I knew nothing about the Hawkeyes or the Avengers before reading, but the writing and characterization were so strong that I felt right at home with them. Clint is like a down-on-his-luck Peter Parker with no powers and Kate Bishop is a pure bundle of fun, charm and comedy. I loved both of them and enjoyed their chemistry together. Even Clint's pet dog Lucky gets some major character development and plays a big role in the plot without ever speaking a single word. Exploring the daily lives of superheroes, getting to know their family dynamics, their troubled upbringings, their struggling relationships and crippling insecurities made them feel extremely human and made for a surprisingly emotional run with characters that had a lot of depth. Jeff Lemire continues the story with two additional volumes. Jeff's run was darker and delved into Clint and Kate's past which explored their respective childhood traumas quite well. The story of Clint and his brother running away from their abusive father to live as homeless carnies in the circus was really sad and the story of Kate living with a distant father with dark connections to the criminal underworld was also touching. Both of them deserved better and watching them have some alone time to confront their tragic pasts were the highlights of Lemire's run. The two backstories were great, but the rest of the final two volumes weren't nearly as good as Fraction's run. There's a what-if time travel subplot, unnecessary drama between Clint and Kate and overall weaker writing in terms of setting up interesting conflict, but the ending wrapped things up very nicely and it's a great series overall. *** My Social Media My YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPPs...

    I loved it. I loved the art direction, and I felt that it really complimented the story being told. Honestly, I did not love the Kate Bishop comics as much, some of the faces got really wonky in an issue or two. But I do appreciate how the story in them ties back to previous issues, and ties around to Clint's story in the end. I really empathized with Clint in these comics, and I think the minimal art direction really helped to tell what Clint was going through. Issue 19 is probably my favourite o I loved it.

Also, shout out to David Aja's issue playlists, which I think just help you to get more of a feel for each issue, and what the artist was going for. So often I would listen to some of the music and go, "Of course! This fits perfectly!" So, big thanks to everyone involved in the project :)

    Extremely solid. Redeems many of the problems with female representation in previous volumes. Fraction displays a talent for both with and suspense that is comparable to prestige television. The villains are fairly one-note, but the two protagonists are so well-developed. Would highly recommend the series. Fraction takes unexpected twist after twist and there’s an extremely unusual non-chronological structure at work here.

    Fully encapsulates the history and essence of this unique member of the Avengers. Fraction’s dialogue really stood out to me, and the choices he makes with time jumps and even a whole issue with sign language are highly original and very entertaining. David Aja and Annie Wu serve as dual artists in this collection, and their work speaks for itself. I want to read Lemire’s run next just to keep following Clint and Kate’s adventures!

    For the bulk of this book, Kate and Clint have separate stories that converge at the end. I generally prefer Kate's story, it's a little easier to understand and Annie Wu's art is just so very good in it. The deaf issue(s) are absolutely amazing comics. Overall this book is more of the same great Fraction Hawkeyes, and I love it love it love it. For the bulk of this book, Kate and Clint have separate stories that converge at the end.

    Fraction, Aja, Wu, Hollingsworth and the rest of the team here deliver a slam-dunk finale to their short-lived, genre-redefining series. So many Marvel (and otherwise) series afterwards draw a clear influence from Fraction's deeply human take on these untouchably superhuman heroes. A must-read.

    Contains more of the good stuff I wish Marvel would concentrate upon. In my comments on book 1, I stated I didn’t care for the art Bro, but Aja’s style is growing on me. While the art style of this book is not my favorite, it does fit well with the story. It helped that I read how the coloring choices were made. Four colors are chosen per issue, the predominant color of page 1 becomes the muted background color of page 2, so on and so on. It works well.

    I liked it a lot, but not as much as the first volume. Part of the reason is that Matt Fraction focuses just as much on Kate Bishop's adventures as he does Clint's, and while I like her I don't find her as interesting as Clint and his troubles. Kate's a cool character and at times pretty adorable, but there's something about Clint's life that's really sad and very human. It's great seeing such a human Avenger in his off times. The artwork as usual is great, I liked that David Aja covered the Barto I liked it a lot, but not as much as the first volume.

I bought the first hardcover so I waited a long time to read this second volume. If anyone else has done the same, it's worth the wait. It's just as funny and sad, heartwarming and suspenseful as the first.

Back in New York, Clint met up with his long lost brother Barney, and together, they became the protector of the whole apartment building against the "bro" mafia. They duke it out mano y mano, as the bros came on them bearing all the bros they could manage. Truly is a fitting end, to a wonderful series. Guess I'll try the current run they have now.
