    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Jul 23, 2015

    It's a great issue, one that celebrates and distills Clint's character, and one that uses the art and the scripting to equally impressive effect. Hawkeye continues to be one of the most consistently thrilling, innovative, and affecting books Marvel is putting out. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jul 23, 2015

    All-New Hawkeye #4 is an exceptionally well crafted comic that has me more interested in Clint Barton than I have been in a long time. Lemire and Perez are great storytellers and the work they are doing with the parallel past & present storylines is fantastic. This is one of the best comics you'll read this month and if you planned to skip it because it isn't tying into Secret Wars, I strongly suggest you reconsider. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Jul 23, 2015

    It's glaring that Kate Bishop doesn't say a word in this issue. It's upsetting, and we feel her verbal absence. Clint's childhood is shown in rich detail, especially his early distaste at witnessing wrongdoing. Jeff Lemire writes an engaging story about Clint and Barney as two brothers who part ways on life's most important decisions. Lemire and Perez create a comic new and old readers will love: a beautifully illustrated story showing why Kate and Clint are heroes. Read Full Review

    All-New Hawkeye #4 is yet another amazing issue, in what is easily one of the best superhero comics from Marvel or DC this year. It is however a shame that this tale will be coming to an end so soon, as though Lemire's is bound to do an outstanding job on the series that will precede this, I would have loved to have explored more of his take on this version of the archer.

    All-New Hawkeye #4 shows that this creative team is more than comfortable thinking outside the box to deliver a heartfelt tale starring our favorite archers. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Jul 28, 2015

    On the whole then, All-New Hawkeye #4 is a must read as Jeff Lemire, Ian Herring and Ramon Perez work together incredibly well to deliver a series that you really should be checking out if youre not reading this book already. Four issues in and its arguably one of Marvels strongest ongoing comics, and itll be interesting to see how this arc comes to its conclusion in the final chapter of Wunderkammer. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jul 22, 2015

    Lemire, Prez, and Herring are continuing to make this book their own. With all the hoopla over the previous volume, it's great to see this series completely stand on its own without completely disregarding what happened before. Each issue feels like I'm visiting old friends. Both the past and the present story lines are intriguing even if the jumping back and forth is sometimes distracting. If you're not reading this book, you need to fix that right away. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jul 23, 2015

    So far the most involving parts of All-New Hawkeye have been those centered on the Barton boys, Clint and Barney. Issue #4 devotes its focus almost entirely to their relationship, Jeff Lemire mostly skirting the present to further flesh out the past. It's a move that mostly works, as we not only see the early evolution of Clint's skill as an archer, but the root of the brothers' strain as well. Read Full Review

    Fans of Hawkeye should definitely stay on for the ride. I'm just not sure if it does much to grab new readers to this character. Still, overall, an excellent read. Read Full Review
