THE HIGH, HARD SHAFT PART 1 From carnival roustabout to petty thief to troublemaking hero, one thing about ex-Avenger and Thunderbolt Clint Barton has never changed: he's a sucker for a lost cause. His travels in search of the world's best chili take Hawkeye out of spandex and into the real world problems of real world losers. The series described as "hard-boiled fiction with an adrenaline kick"! Elmore Leonard meets John Woo! Exotic locations, offbeat characters, sleazy morals and sleazier motives…and a hero who's not afraid to get his hands dirty.

    The HAWKEYE series offers clever dialogue and distinctive art that focuses around a charming, albeit meddlesome, character a character driven by the need to save and to be saved, a character wholl never quit aiming for that perfect shot, not even in a strip joint. Read Full Review

    I so wanted this opening issue to be a grand slam, knock it clear out of the park debut, as I truly want this book to survive in today's ever fickle marketplace. There are several moments in this issue that I found quite engaging, and the hero on the road premise looks somewhat promising. Fabian Nicieza does seem to have a firm grasp on the character of Hawkeye, as we see he's delightfully crude in his dealings with others, and seems perfectly at home in this rather seedy environment. The issue also offers up a fairly clever display of his talents as we see he uses a spoon and a hair-band to take down a bar room full of people. However, the issue also has a rather annoying tendency to abruptly exit on scene and enter in the middle of another, which I found rather disruptive to the flow of the story itself, though perhaps this is the feeling that Fabian Nicieza is trying to convey, as there are certain benefits to having the readers constantly rushing to catch up to the story.
