    Geeked Out Nation - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Apr 9, 2015

    Lemire continues to explore Clint's childhood while giving Kate and Clint a thrilling, unpredictable adventure. I hope Kate and Clint have a lot more dialogue and interaction, because Lemire's humor with these two is superb entertainment. Lemire, Perez, and Herring are creating one of the best comics available today. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Apr 8, 2015

    Hawkeye's latest series continues to be a strong series with it's creative team hitting every point out of the park, as the story itself only becomes more strange. Who are the mysterious children, and just how dangerous can they be? Kate has certainly developed an affinity for them, but whether it was wise of her to bring them to SHIELD has yet to be seen.

    The strength of this arc is not only in tying back into previous stories, but in also clearly defining what differing characteristics the two Hawkeyes possess and what what makes them stronger together and apart. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Keith Dooley Apr 10, 2015

    "All-New Hawkeye" #2 has even more depth and artistry than the first issue. The team of Lemire, Perez, and Herring obviously are giving this book the attention to detail that every writer and artist should look to and emulate in their own work. I've discovered Clint Barton with these collaborators' iteration of the character and look forward to seeing where he's been and where he's headed in the issues to come. Read Full Review

    If you don't already think Ramon Perez is the best artist on Marvel's roster these days, you oughta check out All-New Hawkeye #2. Perez's watercolored pages are a revelation, just absolutely gorgeous beyond belief. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Marcus Orchard Apr 10, 2015

    After two issues, All-New Hawkeye is clearly a worthy successor to the run before it. Lemire's run is a good balance of both Hawkeyes. Not one character upstages the other, and it makes for plenty of memorable moments. This is smart, funny, and heartwarming series, and fans of either Hawkeye will find themselves very invested in this series. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Apr 9, 2015

    All-New Hawkeye is a comic that all Marvel fans should try, as whether you're a fan of the Earth's Mightiest Archers, or not, the magnificent script that Lemire produces is bound to convert you into one. That being said, this second issue isn't quite as enthralling as the first, and having set such a high bar in #1, it's not a shock to find this one not quite matching that. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Apr 9, 2015

    I'm continuing to love the direction of the book. Even if the main plot seems to not move hugely forward here, it allows the flashback section its proper place, and it further shows that Lemire and Perez are taking the book deeper inside Clint, and that's looking to be a rewarding journey.

    The Rainbow Hub - Mad Moll Green Dec 13, 2015

    In All-New Hawkeye #2, artist Ramn Prez continues the really effective visual language from issue #1, using two different artistic styles to represent the present and the future. But it's Ian Herring's colors that really steal the show here. Hawkeye #2 is a great example of how comics coloring can tell a great story all by itself. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Apr 9, 2015

    All-New Hawkeye delivers a good second issue story wise, but the art may turn people off. Jeff Lemire is a man who knows how to appeal to fans and get them excited for a book. The art is hit or miss and it could turn some people off, but the story should be good enough to keep fans of the character around. Read Full Review

    Ramon Perez is the biggest reason to buy this book. All-New Hawkeye is, by far, the best work he's ever produced for Marvel. Read Full Review
