Hawkeye’s relationship to Ronin has even his friends turning against him. He’s been lying about a lot of things. But you can’t lie to Captain America. Meanwhile, his war with the Hood is beginning to spin out of control as the people close to him are put in real danger. Having to deal with the Hood was bad enough, but now Clint finds himself in the sites of another former Hawkeye. No. Not her... Enter BULLSEYE.

    Get ready for a great return to Hawkeye comics as some serious situations are being set up that will have major consequences for Clint's future. This issue is putting into motion some actions that might change Clint's status in the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 21, 2020

    Otto Schmidt does some brilliant work with the art in this issue. Everything from the action to the characters looks amazing. I love the style of Schmidt's art and how it conveys both the comedy and the drama. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald May 20, 2020

    Another good issue in a pretty damn good Hawkeye series, things are really heating up for the final issue, Rosenberg does a fantastic job building the tension throughout this issue. It’s difficult to know how Barton is going to find his way out of the mess he’s found himself in. This series is likely to go down as one of the best Hawkeye series, and whenever new readers are looking for a Hawkeye series to read this will be an easy recommendation. Hopefully Rosenberg and Schmidt will get the opportunity to return to this character in the future. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Brandon Carlisle Aug 17, 2020

    This series is taking a darker turn from its humble, silly beginnings. Tension is building towards what is sure to be an exciting climax. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson May 20, 2020

    Hawkeye: Freefall #5 is another great issue in this series. As I spoke about before I love the tension and tone it builds throughout the issue. You can feel and know something is going to go wrong and when it does it goes from bad to worse for Clint Barton. Even though it is only digital know I am glad the series is at least getting to get finished up and maybe we will get a nice print collection soon! Plus I mean hey new comics so can't complain too much right now! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes May 20, 2020

    Five in a row!!! I can't believe how consistently fantastic this book is. There hasn't been a bad one yet. That's something you can't say for almost any other comic coming out right now. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Tanner Dedmon May 20, 2020

    From the underground fighting rings to the issue's conclusion, the mounting seriousness of the book is conveyed well through some more dramatic and occasionally grisly depictions of the characters and their interactions with friends and foes. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon May 20, 2020

    Hawkeye: Freefall deserves a place on your pull list. While it doesn’t have the crazy scope and scale of other Marvel titles, Rosenberg and Schmidt make a great case that it doesn’t need to. This is about as street-level as Marvel’s street-level books get and proves that the bland interpretation of the character in the Marvel Studios films is the wrong approach altogether. (Seriously, who is that guy? He better be a Skrull.) If you’re looking for a fun and legitimately funny Marvel book this week, look no further than Hawkeye: Freefall #5. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - clayhinojosa10 May 20, 2020

    This issue was entertaining, and I expect the next issue (the final issue) to be entertaining as well. I don't expect it to be mind-blowing. A brawl between the hero and villain, the hero wins, but not really. At least that's what I'm expecting. Oh, and the character at the end? Yeah not dead, calling it now. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall May 23, 2020

    The tone and the feel of this series is very reminiscent of the popular version from Fraction and Aja. I guess that there is considered to be some life left in this mode of storytelling! Read Full Review
