    You Don't Read Comics - PorkChop Edwards Feb 13, 2018

    Unexpected characters, action, and a rather pissed off Hawkeye make this one book you should put on your pull list. Read Full Review

    I really enjoyed this first issue and am looking forward to what's ahead. Although I know where this timeline ultimately leads, I'm excited to revisit this world and see another story told by a new group of creators using the characters and setting. Read Full Review

    OLD MAN HAWKEYE #1 is a wonderful first issue. Ethan Sacks does a fabulous job setting up the plot, and Marco Checchetto and Andres Mossa create a visually stunning dystopian world. This series is a must! Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jan 11, 2018

    I was a little surprised at how much I liked Old Man Hawkeye #1. Maybe it was because I was not expecting much out of it or was not too hyped about it, but it was a fun read. Although, I am still wondering what the real endgame is here? Hawkeye obviously lives at the end. It was a solid start for this twelve issue series. The art is fantastic and, even if you do not like the story, the art is beautiful enough just to stare at for a long time. All in all,Old Man Hawkeye #1 was a good start to a series I never knew I wanted and has me onboard for now. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 10, 2018

    I expected the worst and walked out with a first issue that's beyond impressive and fun in many ways. By sticking to the original formula Sacks and Checchetto have found themselves a winner in many ways. Can't wait to see where this goes and what they have in store for us. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jan 11, 2018

    This is a solid start, a book whose opening salvo appears to be on target - it just remains to be seen whether or not Old Man Hawkeye has enough uniqueness in its story trajectory to truly hit the bullseye. Read Full Review

    DisKingdom.com - Roger Palmer Jan 11, 2018

    Old Man Hawkeye is a great start to the series, setting the tone and where Hawkeye and other characters are. I'm really excited to see where this series goes and I like the idea of being in a different universe, since it throws all the rules out the window and can tell a different story. Read Full Review

    411Mania - RobF Jan 18, 2018

    While I think 12 issues is excessive for OMH, this limited series starts off strong. Let's hope for more cameos and details about the fall of the heroes. Read Full Review

    We Have A Hulk - Nicola Austin Jan 14, 2018

    Old Man Hawkeye #1 is a fantastic start to a promising twelve issue series featuring an intriguing story by Sacks, with some stunning dystopian artwork from Checchetto and Mossa. I'm intrigued to see where this goes following the reveal at the end and can't wait for Clint to explore more of the alternative universe that I loved so much in Old Man Logan. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 10, 2018

    The Old Man Logan universe remains one of Marvel's more popular alternate realms, and Old Man Hawkeye #1 suggests that there's still ground left to cover. Even without the original creative team, this first issue does an excellent job of recapturing the vibe of the original series. However, it doesn't do quite enough to differentiate itself or establish a clear conflict that can sustain a 12-issue comic. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Reed Hinckley-Barnes Jan 12, 2018

    While "Old Man Hawkeye" #1 captures the environment of the original series, as a prequel it still has a lot to do to prove it is a story worth telling. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Micaleff Jan 12, 2018

    Calling in themes of aging and legacy in the face of superhero servitude, Old Man Hawkeye is a solid debut, but one that might excel further if it lets Barton do his own thing. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jan 10, 2018

    The first issue of Old Man Hawkeye doesn't quite fight its way out of the shadow of Millar & McNiven's original Old Man Logan. Unless the storytelling tightens up significantly, the prudent course is going to be re-reading OML rather than following the pre-remix. The compelling post-apocalyptic visuals earn this series a second look, though, and lightning may yet strike twice. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Jan 10, 2018

    A first issue must establish a story, but Old Man Hawkeye #1 only provides a character and world. Perhaps this mistake will be rectified in #2, but that will only matter if reader's remain interested without this key ingredient. Read Full Review
