    Kate Bishop has always been a strong character, and she's at her best when she's voicing her thoughts and not letting anyone tell her what to do. Jeff Lemire is exploring what it means for Kate to be her own superhero and not just Clint's sidekick or partner. Lemire writes an exciting, unpredictable story of our favorite superhero duo.

    After Matt Fraction and David Aja's visually-stunning look at Hawkeye's life from arm's length, it's nice to see Lemire and Perez tackling emotionally-driven narratives in All-New Hawkeye. Read Full Review

    Contrast is the name of the game in All-New Hawkeye #1, both in an artistic and narrative sense. All in all, Jeff Lemire's iron-clad plotting and Ramon Perez's night-and-day stylings come together to make All-New Hawkeye #1 another great start for Team Hawkeye set in tumultuous times.

    I've enjoyed this series since the first issue of the previous volume, so I'm glad to see it back. This story promises to explore some new and old dynamics between Clint and Kate, but it's spot on in its storytelling and its art. All-New Hawkeye #1 cemented itself as one of the bright spots of the ANAD line-up. It's a different and important kind of superhero story that helps us understand the relationships between characters, but also what shapes their worlds. Read Full Review

    As Lemire and Perez provide us with a deeper look into the psychological struggles of the champions we put on pedestals, we all gain a greater sense of understanding and connectedness. I want more weakness. I want more defect. I want more dark imperfection and flawed sadness. I want more Hawkeye. Read Full Review

    All-New Hawkeye #1 feels like a fitting continuation to the previous story, whilst also feeling like something unique and off itself. Giving us some thrilling developments in both the present and future, the creative team do the exact opposite of what they did last time around, with the result being something that is dripping with potential.

    What gives Prez so much to play with on a small scale though is Lemire's script. He is exploring the consequences of surrendering three gifted, but traumatized children away. Lemire separates the story in two parts, showing what led to a split in the present and what brings the two heroes back together after 20 years. The result is something that reads like a breakup story, even if the romantic element was never there. Clint and Kate's codependence and partnership dissolves in a shockingly human manner that may strike close to home for some. As a result All-New Hawkeye is a comic that, much like its predecessors, sophisticatedly presents the problems we go home to after the day job is over (even if that day job is being a superhero).

    Team Hawkeye get their second #1 of the year, but luckily the change in numbering doesn't affect the ongoing work of Jeff Lemire and Ramon Perez. If anything, the step back allows for a pointed change in direction, as Lemire really hones in on the expanding rift between Clint and Kate. The result is a surprisingly serious debut, as we see the inevitable fallout and future repercussions play out hand in hand. Read Full Review

    I want this series to do well. I want it to prove that Hawkeye's popularity isn't a fluke. However, I'm just not certain if I like it yet. The art is amazing, but there's something lacking in the story so far. I don't expect it to be Fraction and Aja'sHawkeye, but I do hope it develops a voice as distinctive soon. Read Full Review
