It has a pulp feel about it and the relationship between Clint and Kate is among the best right now in comics and I hope Fraction doesn't blow that. My only real criticism is he can give the "bro bro" thing a rest and maybe show Clint with his bow and arrows in battle once in a while and not just have him getting the piss beaten out of him each issue.
    Well, it does examine Clint's romantic relationships. And how he views both himself and those that he puts his life on the line for. I suppose it does depend on what exactly is considered complex. A character study can, of course, be complex. Just look at how much of a dick Clint ended up looking, but we still root for him because his failings are very human. He's someone surrounded by beautiful and incredible people every day, it seems only natural to be attracted to those folks. It definitely leaves the door open for errors in judgment.

    And I think he's given as good as he's got, if not better. It's just in that Bruce Willis sort of way where, sure, he beats the bad guys and he's got the bruises to prove it.
    I know Kevin Nichols through a guy that knows a gal. Small world!

    If nihilism didn't take some delight in destruction one might suspect nihilists were an unnaturally morbid sort.

    We talking walk through glass barefoot or throw a car at a helicopter Bruce Willis?

    This mind swap storyline is worse in my opinion due it's just some dumb temporary storyline that won't last no matter what Dan Slott says and Slott(if he's not fired from this book yet) will have to dream up some way to get Doc Ock back in his dead body and brought back to life and Peter back into his when the time comes.
