Before Kate can fully wrap her head around the fact that her estranged sister Susan has reappeared (what?) and was the one who invited her to Resort Chapiteau in the first place (what??) and that this case is definitely not going to allow much in the way of pool time (ughhh), she gets pulled into something she does know how to handle: a little girl staying at the resort has gone missing. But in spite of the fact that she's basically an Avenger, the resort staff don't want her investigating. So now Kate has three mysteries on her hands: where is the girl, what is the resort hiding, and what does this have to do with her family in the first pla more

    A really enjoyable second issue, which moves the story along and leaves us with a nice cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Cat Wyatt Dec 22, 2021

    Hawkeye: Kate Bishop #2 lets Kate's full personality loose, resulting in plenty of quips, a bit of danger, and some bold artwork. But it's the little details that really bring this series to life. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Dec 29, 2021

    There are quite a few villains in Marvels rogues gallery that could be responsible for the mind control. Nijkamp has done a respectable job of allowing the plot to slowly evolve in a way that maintains interest without revealing too much. Within the confines of a five-issue series, this is a lot of fun. The art fits well with the script...its primarily action/drama with just a hint of the humor that Nijkamp is delivering to the story. Kate can tackle more exciting stuff than strange goings-on at an estate in the Hamptons, but Nijkamp has clearly found an enjoyable backdrop for a fun mini-series. Read Full Review

    I liked this issue. It was fun, it wasnt super action-packed, but it didnt need to be. Kate continues to delight and shows why she is the best Hawkeye by helping people, and telling anybody off that needs to hear it. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Dec 22, 2021

    Hawkeye: Kate Bishop #2 is a fun comic that certainly warrants reading. The writers understanding of Kate and her voice is very clear, and there are so many pieces of dialogue that will leave the reader grinning. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Dec 22, 2021

    This is a creative team with potential, but perhaps this isn't the right character for them. The character's appearance, voice and level of skill all feel off here. Fans have had much better Kate Bishop stories than this one, and a character of this caliber deserves better treatment than this. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 25, 2021

    The lackluster mysteries are not enough to sustain this series, the bland character relationships are not enough to sustain this series, and the mysterious (and likely uninteresting) secret villains are not enough to sustain this series. Read Full Review
