    Lemire, Perez, and Herring give Kate her best issue yet in this series: she drives the story by taking action, voices her thoughts, and takes on opponents solo. Clint's been pretty quiet so far, so I hope we get to hear more from him in upcoming issues. I like how this series solidifies Kate and Clint as a team, one that doesn't depend on the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D., or anyone else to give them an identity. This is an entertaining story that leaves possibilities open to wherever Kate and Clint want to go. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick May 28, 2015

    All-New Hawkeye continues to be an exemplar of Marvel's style with solo books at this time; distinctive, character-driven and innovative without being pretentious or sacrificing thrills and adventure. If you want a fun and well-constructed super-hero book with unconventional leads, you can't ask for a better book. Read Full Review

    #3 stands as a big step forward for the creative team behind All-New Hawkeye as the story and characterization move from strength to strength. If the first two issues had left you unsure of whether you should keep reading, this issue will help you decide as the shift in pace and focus lead to a far more engaging narrative. Read Full Review

    All-New Hawkeye continues to be a fun alternative from Marvel's regular superhero program, with the grounded nature, and realism within this tale giving great depth. The emotion on display also adds that extra sense of drama, and though I have a suspicion that Kate has made the wrong decision, it shows how pure her character is. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matt Dodge May 29, 2015

    Tasked with following up a critical acclaimed run that revitalized its titular characters, Jeff Lemire and Ramn Prez have moved quickly to apply their unique sensibility to the world of Clint and Kate. Lemire's story is fast-paced, emotional and entertaining while he explores both the similarities and differences between the two Hawkeyes. Prez continues the recent artistic tone and tradition of the series, being sure to add his own style along the way. The creative team is only halfway through their first story-arc, but they have ready demonstrated a very strong grasp on Clint, Kate and the unique way that they view the superhero world.

    "All-New Hawkeye" #3 is a fun, energetic mid-mission chapter in the all new adventures of Hawkeyes Kate and Clint. Neither character supersedes the others in the comic, but Lemire does give Kate some of the more memorable story beats this time out. Once the final cover closes, however, readers will discover that there are moments and comments that stick with them after, like accidentally referring to the next Kate you meet as "Kate Katie Hawkeye." Lemire builds and celebrates memories here, and "All-New Hawkeye" #3 is one of the good ones that should be held onto. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake May 27, 2015

    Speaking of great stuff--Prez again knocks his pages out of the park, each page loaded with nuance and personality. The artist shows a deft hand in switching from action to humor and back again--one moment Kate is making mince meat out of a full room of assailants, the next Lucky the dog is wagging his tail like it's going out of style. The only misstep comes courtesy of the book's flashback sequences. Though again visually stunning, they don't tie in quite as well as they have before, their wordless inclusion feeling slightly out of place running at the bottom of each page. The end setup makes up for it in terms of progression, but overall the flashback inclusion reads as distracting this time around. Read Full Review

    I suppose I seem like a real gleeful kid but I can't help but say that while it was the thing I was most apprehensive about when I saw the initial pre-series information, you should read it all if only for the flashbacks which are lovely and poised to make this the seminal tale of young Clint Barton.

    All New Hawkeye #3 was another good read. Lemire continues to deliver an entertaining read with this title. This issue offered the reader a nice blend of action, humor and mystery. If you are looking for something different from the usual super hero fare offered up by Marvel and DC then All New Hawkeye is certainly worth checking out. Read Full Review
