    I didn't get that in-depth into the issue this week as it is best that it be seen. There are so many storylines weaved in together that I don't want to spoil anything. Thompson does a great example of calling back to prior story arcs and tying up loose ends as a surprise for the reader, while at the same time starting a new thread for a different story to run parallel with the main story arc. Thompson is out here crossing folks over with the plot, dialogue, and storyline then passing it to Romero for the reverse windmill in the paint (that's three sports references for those counting at home). Kate Bishop is living her best life under this creative team, I never want it to end. Read Full Review

    Kelly Thompson's script manages to add extra dramatic weight by switching between present-day and flashback sections, though after a while it becomes clear that the former just isn't as compelling. Read Full Review

    Another solid, enjoyable issue of Hawkeye moves the story along in some neat and interesting ways. Can't ask for more from this series. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Jul 5, 2017

    Hawkeye #8 is at its strongest when focusing on Kate's relationship with her father. This interaction makes the mystery surrounding the Bishop family even more intriguing as Kate spirals deeper and deeper into her own family drama. While some of the other plot elements can read as somewhat distracting compared to the intensity of Thompsons' father-daughter drama, there's still plenty to show that Hawkeye remains on target.
