    Unlike Bourne's story, Hawkeye is all show and no heart. He has two facial expressions, a scowl and a grimace with clenched teeth, which are hard to tell apart. Any conflict he comes across hardly fazes him, and when the politically-driven plot becomes too much for him to handle, he defers to Nick Fury to do the thinking for him. Hickman may have a complex plot and deeper characterization waiting in the wings, but this issue misses the target. Read Full Review

    Needless to say, but I'm going to anyway, Rafa Sandoval's art is the most attractive thing about this book. Visually, the story makes some sense. Hawkeye is a hell of a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and he's fighting against an army that wants to kill Fury's prize, the two scientists. On a visual level, the book is fairly cut and dry and certainly maintain's the look of an Ultimate Marvel title. There are definitely some cool panels like when the little girl blows up the tank. Being a little more of a words guy, I'm not sure that will entirely save this miniseries. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Sep 9, 2011

    This is an underwhelming disappointment. One comes to a Hawkeye comic hoping for a barrage of on-target attacks, masterful action scenes starring the hero who never misses (and who has a reason to always be on point and ready to aim and fire, as we saw his family killed before his eyes when he was betrayed by a colleague a few years back). I don't think one is looking instead for a murky reading on the state of East/West politics, a generic cameo from Nick Fury or a retread plot from old mutant books. Read Full Review
