all right, all right, all right. anne is correct in all things and maybe hawkeye can be interesting, in the right hands.

so, anne was kind enough to bully me into reading a hawkeye book. i’m not a superhero person, and i’ve read very little in the way of superhero-based graphic novels. i read Watchmen and X-Men: The Dark Phoenix Saga because they were assigned for one of my library-school readers’ advisory classes, and i’ve read a bunch of batman books because – batman, but as far as the rest of

so, anne was kind enough to bully me into reading a hawkeye book. i’m not a superhero person, and i’ve read very little in the way of superhero-based graphic novels. i read Watchmen and X-Men: The Dark Phoenix Saga because they were assigned for one of my library-school readers’ advisory classes, and i’ve read a bunch of batman books because – batman, but as far as the rest of the world of superheroes is concerned – i was completely at a loss. they’re not approachable to me; too many different artists and conflicting storylines/alternate timelines and the early ones seem dated and cheesy but i felt like you would NEED to read the early ones in order to have a foundation for the characters and to see how things evolved or to understand the references or to get the jokes and it was one of those things that seemed too much trouble to even begin getting into now, when i’m probably more than halfway through my lifespan.

and hawkeye – meh. i may not know much about superheroes in graphic novels, but i do watch all the superhero movies that come out because i’m a sucker for the action films kaboom kaboom pow pow. and while i didn’t actively dislike hawkeye the way i did captain america, he’s just kinda … there. there’s nothing particularly appealing about him, he’s just the guy with the arrows, and he doesn’t have pretty elfhair

and he’s not katniss

so it’s hard for me to be enthusiastic about archery when there’s a giant green thing stomping and smashing and there’s scarlett johansson and her attributes to look at instead.

but sometime it’s good to be bullied into things. because that’s kinda the point of this hawkeye book – he’s just a guy. just a regular old joe whose heroic deeds include paying a dog’s vet bills and preventing his neighbors from getting evicted. just a guy who can’t even keep his arrows organized and labeled, but still gets to intercourse pretty girls and fumble into car chases and kick the butts of ninjas and magicians and various other hoods along with girl-hawkeye, while making plenty of self-deprecating remarks and having some great banter along the way.

it’s a fun story, and i’m glad i read it despite my initial reservations of “i do not like this art” and “what is going on with this formatting and are these pages out of order because why does this dog story keep popping up into the middle of this other story and what is even happening?” but greg assured me things were as they should be, and even though i did not understand the last story at all and i think it relates to something outside of the boundaries of this book and is exactly the kind of thing i was worried about being confused by coming so late to the superhero world, i still enjoyed reading this for the laughs and the pizza dog and the general shrugged tone of the narrative.

so, yes.

greg sent me the next group of hawkeye adventures and i will read those soon, and thanks to anne for giving me virtual swirlies and beating me up by the internet flagpole and all that. i have promised to make her turtles from this book: Milk Bar Life: Recipes & Stories, and i will be making good on that promise probably next week – as soon as it cools off a little bit here and they won’t turn into liquid blobs in the mail.

just don’t make me read a captain america. even i have my limits.

Hey, Marvel. Instead of massive crossovers and killing off major characters as publicity stunts, do more like this. Please and thank you.

Hawkeye seems like an odd character for Matt Fraction to do after his acclaimed run on Invincible Iron Man where he wrote Tony Stark as a slightly dickish genuis who was more interesting than the superhero aspect. He uses a similar style to give us a version of Clint Barton that relies on the character’s history instead of discarding it, yet could be picked up

Hawkeye seems like an odd character for Matt Fraction to do after his acclaimed run on Invincible Iron Man where he wrote Tony Stark as a slightly dickish genuis who was more interesting than the superhero aspect. He uses a similar style to give us a version of Clint Barton that relies on the character’s history instead of discarding it, yet could be picked up by any casual fan and enjoyed. As a result, we get a fresh perspective on Hawkeye and one helluva of a fun book.

This should be the usual thing of a hero best known for being part of a larger group having some side adventures on their own. Hawkeye is longtime Avenger where his insecurities about his lack of superpowers often manifested in a smart-ass attitude and problem with authority. As Clint points out several times here, he’s just a guy with a bow-n-arrow who usually works with people far more powerful than him. The easy thing to do would have been to revamp him closer to the Ultimate version that was used in The Avengers movie to make Clint a super-secret SHIELD agent who goes out and has covert adventures. That could have worked, but would have seemed very Wolverine-ish.

What’s brilliant about this is that Fraction went in the opposite direction and plays up the angle that Clint Barton doesn’t have any powers and is frequently in over his head. The first panel shows him crashing out a high window and the fall puts him the hospital for six weeks. When he’s not off avenging Clint wants to live a somewhat normal life in his Brooklyn apartment where he enjoys grilling out with his neighbors on the roof, but he keeps getting sucked into bad situations like dealing with a Russian mafia slumlord who owns his building. Even when he does a side job for SHIELD that involves going to sleazy Madripoor, Clint has to fight off thieves trying to steal his wallet. And since he doesn’t have the powers of a Norse god or a high-tech suit of armor Clint frequently gets the crap kicked out of him.

All of this is done with plenty of humor and heart. If the storyline involving Pizza Dog doesn’t get to you, then get tested because you’re probably a sociopath. I also love that they’re using Kate Bishop as a kind of partner/sidekick. There’s a funny dynamic to that because Kate replaced Clint when he was suffering from a minor case of superhero death, and she’s kept the name of Hawkeye, too. So it’s Hawkeye and Hawkeye. Batman wouldn’t put up with that, but it’s perfect for the adventures of a slightly scruffy superhero.
