    This was the first issue of this mini-series. It's only four issues. The price is a VERY reasonable $2.99. Buy this comic! If you've ever been a fan of the Avengers you owe it to yourself to read this! Even if you don't know squat about Hawkeye besides the fact that he's an archer, you should STILL buy this comic! Trust me, you'll be glad you did. Read Full Review

    Whether you like what McCann has been doing with "Hawkeye and Mockingbird" and "Widowmaker," or are just a fan of the Clint Barton character, this issue offers quite a bang for your three bucks. Marvel's made the point of offering dot one comics to lure new readers in to existing stories. I've read a few of those dot ones and, honestly, they pale in craft and content compared to this one single issue. This issue does a marvelous job of capturing the spirit of the characters, relaying their history, and setting a new course for the action to come. This is a throwback to how comics used to be: new reader friendly, old reader relevant, and action packed. I've never been the biggest Hawkeye fan, but McCann has been winning me over bit by bit. This one issue, however, brought me the rest of the way along the journey. If the next three issues bring as much to the table as this one issue, this Hawkeye series will be one to remember for the ages, just like that classic "Avengers" cover. Read Full Review

    Hawkeye: Blindspot doesn't get off to a wholly satisfying start. Luckily, now that the flashbacks are out of the way, there's ample room for McCann to focus the story and ramp up the conflict. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Feb 18, 2011

    Blindspot is a good take on a dusty plot. McCann makes this tale a unique Hawkeye story while grounding it in the Marvel Universe. Although I miss the Lopezes from Hawkeye & Mockingbird, Paco Diaz and Tomeu Morey bring a strong sense of proportion and scale to the mix and enhance the drama. Read Full Review
