I'm tellin you man, if this book gets skipped over at the Eisners, somebody SERIOUSLY screwed up. In a sea of mediocrity, decompression, and "that was pretty good, I guess?", Hawkeye is the gold standard, guaranteed to give you your money's worth in those 20 pages, great issue after great issue. Even the FILL-IN artist is awesome.
When I talk about Hawkeye, I can only speak in hyperbolic extremes to praise the sheer craft on display.

It would be cool to see the Black Cat make her appearance in Clint's world. I want to see Clint's reaction towards Felicia as they work together. Also, I am dying to see Ashley Barton come to his world from the future where she takes up residence as one of his major adversaries since she's the glue that would bond Clint and Peter Parker together.
Hawkeye is a great title,but i think Daredevil is better.

I don't think there's a current mainstream American superhero comic book that can touch Hawkeye right now. Brilliant all the way. Entertaining and technically outstanding at the same time.
Try this one too if you want to see what Fraction's script looks like.

Also, for the love of God, pick up The Immortal Iron Fist.
im deeply surprised just how good this book is honestly. it actually pisses me that marvel doesn't promote this as much as the other NOW titles, when there are so few NOW that i enjoy more than this book.
Hawkeye is currently my favorite book by far.
Cyclops was right.
It's a great book, and I love that Fraction's got his mojo back.
He was in a bit of a slump after fear itself, but working on a character he loves with an artist he loves was all it took to bring him back.
Marvel should do more of these. It kinda reminds me of Warren Ellis's run on Secret Avengers. Except this is better.
How does Daredevil compare? I've never really had much interest in him as a character, but if it's similar to this I'm game.
