For Marvel's 80th anniversary we've set our sights on bringing some old titles back into the herd, and we've brought in Stray Bullets" David & Maria Lapham for a bullet-riddled saga of violence, vengeance and Western justice. In the days of the Old West there were plenty of fearsome folk... cowboys, rustlers, lawmen and outlaws...but few were as fearsome as THE GUNHAWKS!

    Gunhawks may not break any new ground, but it isn't trying to. Instead it's a deft homage to the Western genre and that chapter in Marvel's publishing history, and as such it works wonderfully. If you're looking for something different, David "Stray Bullets"Lapham - a modern master of the one-and-done format - along with the rest of the creative team have crafted an extremely fun treat.

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Feb 6, 2019

    Gunhawks #1 delivers something more complex than a "white hats vs. black hats" fight. It uses a fateful day of gunplay to ask fascinating questions about moral growth and it lets the sheriff work out his own bittersweet answer. It's subtle and thoughtful and highly rewarding. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Feb 6, 2019

    Gunhawks has the visual style of a Spaghetti Western and the narrative of a classic revenge story. The only downside to this comic is that it is a one off and not a continuing story. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 11, 2019

    It's a classic Western story with blood, guts, action and a lost love, all wrapped around the fundamental question of whether man can change. Good stuff. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 9, 2019

    This Gunhawks revival  has a classy feel about it that fits right into a well-worn genre that might still have some life left in it. The anthology format of Marvels other 80th anniversary revivals is sorely missed in this issue. The issue-length doesnt feel padded-out in any way. Its exactly as long as it needs to be to get the story across, but a title like Gunhawks feels like it could really benefit from another story or two between the covers. Read Full Review
