    This was fun. Clint Barton is up to shenanigans for good reasons, causing tons of problems for himself and The Hood. Don't let those terrible Kim Jacinto covers fool you. The interior art is fantastic. Otto Schmidt's art is hyper kinetic and dynamic. I guess he really likes archers, having illustrated Green Arrow's latest run as well. This was fun.

    I really enjoyed this one; it really captured the spirit of Clint while still managing to put him in territory he's not trodden before. I was genuinely on the edge of my seat thinking 'where the heck is this going?' and I see the ending leaves Clint in a not-that-great place. There better be a follow-up on this one... if Clint's back to his normal status quo the next time we see him, I'll be very disappointed. I really liked the artwork, too.

One thing struck me as odd, though: has the Kingpin lost about twenty stone since we last saw him? Is this a change from another book I haven't read yet or did the artist on this book just forget Wilson Fisk is supposed to be HUGE? Answers on a postcard...

    4.5 stars. I was pulling these as singles before the diamond shut down happened.

It’s funny as hell, a lot of cool cameos, crazy fights, mystery, plot twists and Clints plans back firing on him over and over putting him in more and more ridiculous positions. The art was cool too. Kinda quirky and hyper active style that fit this crazy tale perfectly. With all the funny moments and hijinks, the book comes to a tragic yet real and crazy end that has you wondering where this really leaves Clint. Highly recommended.

    Clint Barton, the B-list Avenger Hawkeye, becomes obsessed with taking down the Hood, Parker Robbins, the C-list crime lord. Things become complicated when Barton has to convince everyone that he is not the ruthless vigilante running around in his old Ronin costume targeting Hood's operations. And I do mean ~everyone~ as this is basically a Marvel Team-Up book with everyone from Spider-Man to D-Man popping up in the six chapters. It's all humorous good fun until things take a dark turn that could Clint Barton, the B-list Avenger Hawkeye, becomes obsessed with taking down the Hood, Parker Robbins, the C-list crime lord.

    Hawkeye: Freefall has become one of my favorite Marvel comics. It has the things I enjoy the most about the genre: humor, action, intrigue, character focus, and that feeling you're reading a really good heist story. The story is self-contained, even if there are nods to continuity; it's not hinging on any past events, other than general knowledge of who Hawkeye is. In its basics, it's simple: Hawkeye wants to take down the Hood, and he'll do anything to accomplish it, including ruining his own l Hawkeye: Freefall has become one of my favorite Marvel comics.

Throw in some suspicions from friends and loved ones, an unhinged assassin who's no stranger to Hawkeye's get-up, and some costume-shenanigans, and you have yourself a great comic. Schmidt's art enhances the story, working well to enhance the contrasts of Ronin and Hawkeye visually, and makes the superhero shininess work with nods to more classical art. Rosenberg really manages to set all the pieces in place early and the pay-off is worth it, even if it puts Hawkeye in a bad position for stories to come.

    A fun story with a couple of HUGE MacGuffins and a surprisingly large body count, this is a semi-classic Hawkeye tale of chaos and mayhem, and features a major supporting cast including The Hood, Bullseye, Kingpin, Night Nurse, Spider-Man, Winter Soldier, Mockingbird and Falcon, among others. Hawkeye comes off as a little more ruthless here than recently, and that point is underscored by the ending.

    This comic fooled me, made me laugh, made me question, and many other things. Here we've got our favourite archer (beside kate) playing on the line or morality, which I enjoyed very much. The appearances from the other Avengers and friends was very fun and made the whole thing even more intense. One of my favourite reads.

    The fact this didn't get to be a full series is a CRIME. For shame, Marvel! I loved what Rosenberg did with Clint here and I'm glad any doubts I had were thrown out the window pretty quickly. Add Otto Schmidt's gorgeous artwork in the mix and it was chef's kiss all around. (read as single issues) The fact this didn't get to be a full series is a CRIME. For shame, Marvel!

    This is honestly one of my new favorite arcs!!! This was actually a really fucking good comic with solid pacing, storytelling, and weaving in of lore without being info dump-y. Genuine comedic moments that made me laugh for the entire first issue. It also had a face lift for the modern times by providing resources for the people affected by the Hoods drug trafficking instead of just cutting off the supply chain. Also they insulted Reagan which is neat

    Rosenberg proves himself to be one of Marvel’s best writers once again. He takes Clint on a journey that squares perfectly with him as an established character but managed to set him off on a brand new journey. Funny, tragic, unpredictable and very impressive..

    Screw Marvel, man. This was the best comic in their lineup for just about it's entire run. Thor and Daredevil are close, but gees. Same thing happened with Loki. Now we're going to have to wait another decade for a new Hawkeye comic. And I doubt it'll be anywhere near as good as this was. Screw Marvel, man.

    This one is a toughie for me to try to review. For starts, there’s been a handful or so that have claimed the name ‘Ronin’ in the Marvel verse. The idea of Clint, who bore the name himself, going after Ronin gave me a bit of a hype for this story to come out! The story itself is quite a bit darker than newer Hawkeye comics. We have The Hood in town, who seems to be in control of everything and everyone in the city, and Ronin on the loose, with the Avengers loosing their trust in Clint.

We have The Hood in town, who seems to be in control of everything and everyone in the city, and Ronin on the loose, with the Avengers loosing their trust in Clint. Clint himself, because of the storyline, becomes darker. He still has a bit of the sass and comedic moments readers have come to see from him over the last few years, but you can also see where the lines of hero/vigilante/villain start to twine around each other. Honestly I don’t mind a look at Clint’s darker side, and I really hope this arc continues. Now, on to where it fails. While I love seeing the darker side of Clint, I hate what they did with him personality wise. Maybe he spent a bit too much time to LA with the West Coast Avengers because at points in the story he’s more of a Valley Bro eating a $20 omelet with the top buttons of his shirt undone and collar popped instead of eating pizza with Pizza-Dog or BBQing on the roof. They also skimmed over him being deaf. In some of the art you can barely tell he’s wearing his hearing aids. This is a big disappointment as Fraction’s Hawkeye really brought out the character with the fact that he’s deaf and a great superhero. (Not to mention a cameo by Daredevil SCREAMS a sideways joke.) Overall, Freefall is an okay read with great art to center it. The storyline is well played, but the characterization needs a bit of work.

    There's a lot to love in Hawkeye: Freefall from Rosenberg's obvious knowledge and love for the Marvel universe to Schmidt's art--literally everything about Schmidt's art from the style to the bold and saturated colors...I will now read anything he illustrates, and I mean anything.

The story is a little convoluted (comics...what you gonna do?), the ending feels like we're walking out of a movie before the final scene finishes, and there are questionable narrative choices (why create a neat character that other comic writers could utilize later only to kill them off like that when the injury on its own served the purpose for the plot progression??), but it's simply a fun time. Hawkeye fans will love the little nods to other Marvel characters and how Clint interacts with each as well as the way Clint is self-deprecating, a big doofus, and notably kind-hearted. Rosenberg doesn't dumb Clint down in the way he did in Tales of Suspense (picking his nose?? Come on...), and this refreshed me this time around. I don't think I'll ever be fully happy with a comic that forgets to draw Clint's hearing aid at times or one that casually forgets he needs one when it would impair the narrative or require an extra panel or page to nod to it, but I genuinely enjoyed the occasional small bits about his hearing impairment (like the snide recording from Bullseye). Overall, it was money worth spent. Maybe I'm just too harsh because I'll be on a Matt Fraction/David Aja high until the day they lay me in a cold, damp grave, but who can say?

    i read the first five of these immediately on release and then didn’t read the 6th and final for some reason. maybe it was a subconscious attempt to prolong the series, i don’t know. and maybe my subconscious was right to do so because now that i’ve finished i’m sad! i had a lot of fun with this one. in recent years (post-fraction tbh, sorry to be that person who can’t talk about hawkeye without bringing up fraction) i feel like authors have struggled to write clint. they give him all of the goo i read the first five of these immediately on release and then didn’t read the 6th and final for some reason. maybe it was a subconscious attempt to prolong the series, i don’t know. and maybe my subconscious was right to do so because now that i’ve finished i’m sad! i had a lot of fun with this one. in recent years (post-fraction tbh, sorry to be that person who can’t talk about hawkeye without bringing up fraction) i feel like authors have struggled to write clint. they give him all of the goofs and the screw ups and make him borderline incompetent, without any of the things that make him a good hero. rosenberg doesn’t fall into that trap; his clint is smart (dumb, but smart!), he has a good heart, and he’s not incompetent, he’s good at what he does. and he gets a good emotional arc about the cost of his actions. i’m really interested to see what comes next for clint, since this was only a 6 book run that left a lot of things up in the air. but it was nice to actually be able to enjoy hawkeye again!

    I blame quarantine and the mess that is the 20/21 for falling in love with Hawkeye. I honestly think I needed his snark and attitude to get me through the year. The story set in Freefall was interesting. I was not expecting some of the twists and turns that came out of it. Hell, there were times that I had to close the book because I was laughing my ass off at what was going on. (That may also be because it's been a rough week, and I needed something to distract me...but I digress.)

The only thing that I didn't like about the comic was how many other Avengers and other heroes/villains they were trying to jam into this book. I thought it was too much and the author was trying to hard. Despite this I really loved the comic and I can't wait to read more.

    A really great Hawkeye story! I loved the artwork, Clint's characterization, the use of the supporting characters, and the fun guest stars. I would say the only "con" to this book filled with "pros" is that I would have liked to have seen more of the villain, when he kind of just felt like a generic bad guy, but he wasn't badly written at all. Overall, if you're a fan of Hawkeye, the Avengers, or just street-level heroes, then check this out! A really great Hawkeye story!

    fun, exciting story, lot of things happened but i can keep up just fine which is good cause usually this double identity thingy would give me a brain cramp. knowing this is the same writer who wrote that bucky and clint team up, i can't help but notice some winterhawk moments (sharing food etc.) and the art is amazing i love this style so much!! clean lines and easy on the eyes coloring, everyone looks hot (except maybe for Clint's new girlfriend? at least in her first appearance). fun, exciting story, lot of things happened but i can keep up just fine which is good cause usually this double identity thingy would give me a brain cramp. knowing this is the same writer who wrote that bucky and clint team up, i can't help but notice some winterhawk moments (sharing food etc.) and the art is amazing i love this style so much!! clean lines and easy on the eyes coloring, everyone looks hot (except maybe for Clint's new girlfriend? at least in her first appearance).

    Rosenberg seems to want to thread the needle in Freefall between the personal, day to day Hawkeye stories Matt Fraction wrote and rocked my world with while still providing the bigness of traditional huperhero story telling. It didn't get all the way there for me and the care free tone of the series seemed misguided once characters start dying as a result of our hero's actions and inactions. It's a shame really because Otto Schmidt's art here is really good.

    I wanted to like this much more than I did. There are some fun aspects but the story winds up being so scattershot that it feels like I’m jerked around with no solid conclusion. Chekhov’s guns get introduced only to be tossed into the river or fully forgotten about in favor of a new shinier gun. If the story was a scoch more cohesive I’d be all over this title.

    Pretty damn good. I liked the wacky art, and especially all the vivid colors. It's a pretty good take on Clint, a mixture of old school bravado and newer down-on-his-luck Hawkeye. The ending kinda threw me though, they didn't show him making up with any of the other heroes, I want to know if this story has any followup in any other titles? Pretty damn good.

This was an enjoyable and fast paced Hawkeye story, but the reason he donned the Ronin costume never really made sense to me. Hopefully there's a follow up as it leaves on a bit of a strange note.

    This book has the wit you come to expect form a Hawkeye book. Artwork is very dynamic as well. I really hope Marvel green lights another six issues as it ends on a cliffhanger.

    An interesting story that had moments the could have been developed further, but as it was only 5 issues, it fit well within its space. Lots of fighting and quips made it very entertaining.
