    Default Hawkeye #6 *Spoilers*

    It's Fraction and Aja and Hollingsworth on HAWKGUY everyone!

    As you can well imagine, their amazing run couldn't continue for ever, and finally they release a sucky issue.

    HA! Only joking! It's once again the best thing ever in comic books. The highest praise I can give this, is that the only person this comic looks and sounds like other than Fraction/Aja/Hollingsworth is Chris Ware's building stories. Imagine Building Stories but if Hawkguy owned and lived in the building and had problems with the mafia.

    SPOILER BITS:

    It's six days in the life of Hawkguy in the run up to Christmas. Spider-man and Wolverine persuade him to have a week off to watch Dog Cops. He agrees. CUE JUMPING AROUND BETWEEN DAYS AS WE SEE WHAT'S GOING ON WITH HAWKGUY. Tony Stark and him try and fix some AV equipment. He gets into trouble with the Bros. He accidentally knocks out satellite for the entire building. Arrow appears. It looks like there is more to the bros than just being tracksuited hoodies.

    Hawkguy checklist:

    Knocked out and Concussion: Yes!
    Kate in a new outfit: Yes!
    Jumping round in time: Yes!
    Looking incredibly good: Yes!
    Hawkguy not in uniform: Yes!
    Bro: BRO!

    Pros:
    The opening page bomb defusal gag is hilarious.
    FRACTION
    The little four corner panel where Tony Stark asks him about wall street has the best facial expressions ever.
    AJA
    Development of the building cast so they have a variety of personalities
    HOLLINGSWORTH
    The name Hawkguy is now canonical.
    ELIOPOULOS

    Cons:
    It is exceedingly hard to moan about this comic on the internet.
    I could always read more of Kate and Arrow.

    Today's panel of the week (though it was harder to pick this week, but I'm a sucker for upside spider-man and snow):



    Overall I give this comic one star, but it's the star that sits on top of the best Christmas Tree ever.

    I love that he calls Tony Stark to hook up his DVR. That's such a Hawkguy thing to do.

    This issue was almost flawless. Just a stellar piece of work, all around.

    Best ongoing in Marvel right now. It's between Hawkdude, Daredevil and X-Men Legacy but I'm going to say Fraction and Aja just pulled ahead.

    Another fantastic issue. I cannot praise this book enough... An extremely enjoyable read the entire way through. Clint and Kate's friendship is unstoppably awesome, even when it's dramatic. The interactions between all the characters are great, but the chemistry he's given those two is at a level that I haven't seen in at least a couple of years – in any medium.


    Between Happy Endings last night and Hawkeye this morning, the last 24 hours have been very good for fiction.
    Primary pulls: X-Factor, Hawkeye, Young Avengers, Avengers Arena, X-Men: Legacy, Uncanny X-Force, FF, Archer and Armstrong

    Bro, this issue was censored by SW awesome! I don't think there's a single page there that didn't make me laugh a few times. Now I'm off to watch Dog Cops, since even Tony Stark says it's cool.
    That's right! Al Gore invented the internet, let's all go kick his ass!

    I got your inconvenient truth right here, motherf*&%!

    These reviews are almost as good as this book has been every issue.

    I like how the whole time they're just trying to have a "joyous-ass kwanza"

    I'm going to buy the splash page of Hawkeye in the snow and blow it up so it's life sized. Then buy a building to put it on. Meanwhile, here's that 4 little panels that shows off the best tony stark facial expressions ever:



    NOTICE HOW EVERYONE DOES EVERYTHING RIGHT ON THIS ONE TINY SECTION. The script that sets that up, the look on Stark's face, the way the colours highlight the different people, the way the letters look just right. Heck, this page was probably even edited beautifully.

    I was grinning ear to ear the entire issue; it was simply amazing in every respect. So many great lines, and great scenes, and great art, and great everything.

    Man, six issues in and every single one has been superb. Were it not for Saga, this would easily be my favorite series right now.

    This book will definitely be remembered like Miller's Daredevil, bro.

    It has it's own style of timelessness and timely-ness, just like that run. Bro.


    Never liked Hawkguy this much in my life.
