    The Hawkeye story was a bit on the confusing side, but it starred Hawkeye and much like those old Avengers Solo comics, had him facing off against uber-lame villains like the Trapster(Pot Paste Pete!!!) and Chance. So while the story wasn't fantastic, the Hawkeye fan in me was pleased. The second story, while shorter, was much better. I love the Avengers Academy characters, and the story here made sense.

    Avengers Solo offers a mix of superhero tale and noir, as Hawkeye finds himself pulled into the middle of a search for a missing woman and a murder investigation. While on patrol, Hawkeye stumbles on a man named Tulio Guzman as he's being attacked by a villain Hawkeye doesn't recognize. After saving Tuli, Hawkeye learns that the man's sister has gone missing, though it's not until the next day that Tuli reluctantly agrees to allow Hawkeye to help him. However, Hawkeye never gets to learn much from Tuli, as he soon finds him dead in a hotel room, with a note reading "Avenge This!" pinned to the mattress beside his body with an arrow. Reading it as a clear message to him, Hawkeye takes it upon himself to take up Tuli's quest to find his missing sister. Read Full Review

    Hopefully, adding Avengers to the title will help boost the book's sales a bit to continue Marvel's trend of Hawkeye minis. Read Full Review

    This book is an oddity. It offers a whole lot of potential, but doesn't deliver on much of that potential. The recently published "Hawkeye & Mockingbird" series had more of a "Solo Avengers" feel to it than this comic does. There's no denying "Avengers" is the brand of choice at Marvel nowadays (I'm surprised Matt Fraction's new book isn't titled "Defending Avengers") but this title does little to merit that connection.
