    But the one real weakness of the mini-series so far is the flashbacks. McCann continues to trace the path of Hawkeye's career, this time focusing on his early Avengers missions. The flashbacks are far too fragmented to be of much use to newbies, and outside of one or two instances they don't really add anything to the story in general. Worse, the narration McCann employs during these scenes is extremely hokey. But with a strong main storyline and some snazzy visuals in both segments, Blindspot is quickly picking up steam. Fans of Hawkeye or McCann's past work have no reason to pass this up. Read Full Review

    The more I read Blindspot, the more I miss Hawkeye & Mockingbird. Hawkeye needs a counterpart. Read Full Review

    It's a shame that a book as good as "Hawkeye and Mockingbird" has given way to a weak miniseries such as this, particularly when McCann is the writer of both. I'd normally call McCann one of Marvel's most promising rising stars, so it's unclear what's gone wrong here. Hopefully, it's just a blip. It should be noted, though, that when "average" is the worst you've done, you're still way in front of the curve. Ultimately, it seems unlikely that "Hawkeye: Blindspot" will do anything to change anyone's mind that "Hawkeye & Mockingbird"'s cancellation was a mistake, even though it's not particularly poor in its own right. It's certainly a shame, but unfortunately, not one we can do much about at this point. Let's just hope McCann has a decent conclusion in mind. Read Full Review
