Kate Bishop hates the circus!
Turns out that the Resort Chapiteau is being run by none other than the Circus of Crime as nothing more than a new and exciting way to part rich people from their money. Except the signet ring they stole from Susan unlocks her safe at Bishop Manor, which contains something way, way more dangerous than stacks of cash. Also, the resort is set to self-destruct, and the guests (and Susan and Lucky) are still inside. Worst. Vacation. Ever.

    OverallAnother really enjoyable issue, which shows us why so many people fell in love with the character of Kate Bishop. I've really enjoyed the moments throughout all issues thus far where we have heard Kate's internal dialogue. You can almost imagine it as narration in the Marvel TV series, which I hope we'll get to see after the success of the Hawkeye TV series. Read Full Review

    Hawkeye: Kate Bishop #4 is lively and fun. A nice little mystery has escalated rapidly to the point where Kate needs to ply all her skills to keep things under control. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Sasha Kaplan Feb 9, 2022

    The artistic scope and emotional journey conveyed throughout the previous issues are lacking here. Nevertheless, the promise of what is to come keeps me interested in the comic. But this was not as strong an issue as we have previously seen. I hope we see Cassie and America appear at some point, because otherwise, all the teasing is unfair. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 10, 2022

    With Kate and her sister firmly unified, the series seems to be well set up for its final chapter. The action involving a fragment of the Cosmic Cube should be suitably impressive if Nijkamp manages to frame the story's climax with the kind of energy that she has managed to capture in the penultimate issue of the series. Kate's fun in her own series, but the specific trappings of her family's estate aren't proving to be quite the right stage for her energy this time around. It's been fun, but Kate will have to wait a bit longer for something that fits her personality a bit better. Read Full Review

    This whole series has been a train wreck, but it at least started out as a fun ride. Thats not the case any longer as the only timer that matters for me is the countdown to this book being over! Read Full Review
