• Hawkeye tries to solve a case with too many uncomfortable similarities to her own life, almost as if fixing things for her young client will fix things for herself (spoiler alert: That's not how it works, Kate)!
•  At least she's getting to punch through her frustrations courtesy of the. Worst. Fight. Club. Ever. Right?
•  And just when she thinks she's coming to terms with her new reality (thank you, therapeutic violence!), Kate gets thrown a curve ball she never saw coming...but maybe should have!

    As much fun as we got in this issue, there's a good look at how Kate Bishop can sink into herself in moments and hold off on stepping up to the plate when things revert back to her father and her family. Family is becoming a big echo in this series as well, which I appreciate. You don't realize that's an underlying theme until later, and seeing the cast that Kate Bishop has now puts all of that front and center. Read Full Review

    In short, the series achieves a nice blend of goofy action and violent tension. Artist Leonardo Romero helps further that balance with his clean, elegant art style. Read Full Review

    On the whole, Hawkeye #9 is a really enjoyable read. It's fun and action heavy with some amazing artistic work, but doesn't shy away from the hard-hitting character development when it matters. Read Full Review

    This was another hugely entertaining issue of Hawkeye, but I fear the comic is getting stretched a little too thin with the constant action. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Aug 7, 2017

    Hawkeye #9 has its fun moments, but isn't as strong as the previous issues in this arc. The story puts too much emphasis on Kate's friends - characters who still need growth to hold their own story. This panel time could have been used to expand upon Kate's father and his connection to Madame Masque, a story that could have paralleled stronger with the closing of Kate's current father/daughter case.
