Okay well first off Fraction has had the reigns of both Iron Man and Thor when they had the movies out. He even got a relaunch and the sales of both are in the toilet right now.
Secondly his high profile launch of Defenders also seems to be a failure already selling below 30k by #3.
I mean you can't do any more for the guy than give him a couple of high profile movies and a hugely hyped new title riding on the back of an event, one he wrote. Yet still he sheds readers.
So why the hell did Marvel give him a Hawkeye book. I mean are they completely incapable of accepting they are wrong about their 'architects' that they have to ruin one book after another's chances in a futile attempt to legitimise their decisions.
I mean movie aside, Hawkeye has been a tough sell at best. That was even when he looked like Hawkeye instead of Ultimate Hawkeye. Who'se recent series ended up at 23k and that was written by Hickman who people generally seem to like.
This is what frustrates me about Marvel the most. This architect thing. Which seems to be either giving their mates the choice projects or just catering to their personal tastes. Neither of which should wash with however is running the show at Marvel. It's like the kids been left home alone?
