    In terms of characterization, I still love Hawkeye. Both of them. Why? Because they're human. Of course, they can shoot a bow better than anyone on the planet, but they're also people dealing with issues a lot of people can relate to. Not everyone has a quiver full of trick arrows they use to fight crime, but plenty of people have dealt with negligence or the consequences of a rashly made decision like Barton in the above image. That's what makes this such a good comic. It's fun to see fantastical situations, but the reason we keep reading is because we see some of ourselves in these characters too. Read Full Review

    Kate's independence is one of her core characteristics, and this arc reveals backstory showing this has always been true. Lemire shows us Kate's resourcefulness as she scopes out her father's shady business deals. Like Kate and Clint, Lemire and Prez team up to create an unpredictable, entertaining story.

    All-New Hawkeye's three tiered story structure " past, present and future " has been hit or miss thus far, and that same feeling holds true here in issue #5. Read Full Review
