    You're right. I went through it again. I still think the time jump didn't really help, but it's better on the second pass.

    I think they needed better (i.e. some sort of) signifier of the time frame, but it wasn't a huge problem. I kind of wonder how the thugs tracked Hawkeye down at the clinic (not to mention did no one else come out of the casino with guns before Hawkeye could get the dog out of the street and away from that scene).

    He probably just sneaked away. He was a ninja, don't forget.

    The street scenes are different. Chinatown vs Vet Clinic. Thugs and a dog vs no thugs and no dog. I mean, yes, it was intentionally an almost identical shot, but that's what made it so great.

    Hold my hand, guys.

    Casanova, I enjoy wtf stuff but it came across as very mean spirited and I am not a fan of the art.

    Thanks for the the recommendations. Right now, I need as far from reality reads as I can get. But it is good to hear folks are enjoying this.
    Well, Casanova is about as far from reality as you can get and it's not at all a mean spirited book, really. I can't believe you don't like the art... well, I can, as a Marvel fan I guess that makes sense(maybe?) but Gabriel Ba' is a crazy great illustrator. That book is comics at its best.

    LOVED this book. Was hesitant to read it but I really love Hawkeye and wasn't disappointed at all. This was a great introductory issue and I can't wait to get into some long-term stories.

Maybe it's a risky move, but I think it's a cool way to start a series and suggest that things will be character driven.
    That is pretty much what we're going for. I think the "bang-for-your-buck" factor is more important than ever and we want to give people an idea of what we're asking them to invest their time and money in.

    I don't think that Captain Marvel or Hawkeye are easy sells in the best markets and I can't depend on someone being ready to invest in 6 issues right out of the gate just to get a story. More and more people are trade waiters.

    There's more than one way to skin a cat, though. This is just how we did it.

    Glad it worked for some of you. Matt F., David, Matt H and Chris are a pretty special team.

    Best first issue ever - right up there with Waid's Daredevil. This was incredibly fresh and innovative. I could feel the rising NYC heat, but after I finished, that Hawkeye was so damn cool it was like standing in fridge.

    Got excited when Fraction mentioned in interviews: Stephen J Cannell, Rockford - he nailed it. Those were the best tv cop shows of all time that make CBS drama like CSI or whatever is on today look like crap from a potty.

    Thank you Marvel for giving Fraction and Aja this mainstream title.

    That's the best point about this book and hopefully Marvel going forward. Waid's DD and Fraction's Hawkeye both read like creator-owned books and it's DEFINITELY for the better of Marvel. If they keep this trend going, I'm going to be a very happy young man.

    I guess the book will live or die depending on the villians Hawkeye faces. I hope for some great ones and not just kingpen types.

    This first issue was alright. It's suppose to be Daredevil like, so I'll see where the next few issues takes it.

    I'm just very unfamiliar with that stereotype I guess.
