    After it's all said and done, I do understand this story much better, but I still found this miniseries tough and cumbersome to get through. As a trade, it might flow better, but on a monthly basis, it just struggled to meet expectations. And that's just a shame when I think about what Jonathan Hickman is capable of. Read Full Review

    As a tie-in to what's happening in "The Ultimates," "Ultimate Hawkeye" effectively expands upon a subplot and gives it the necessary room to be its own story, but, as a story centered around Hawkeye, it's less effective. On the whole, though, this series, and this issue in particular, has showed off Jonathan Hickman's strengths at creating interesting, thoughtful characters and situations. What he does with the Celestials and Eternals going forward is an exciting question to think about. Read Full Review

    The highlights of Ultimate Comics: Hawkeye have nothing to do with the title character. And if this book was intended to introduce moviegoers to Clint Barton in time for the Avengers movie, it didn't do a terrific job. Read Full Review

    Ugh. This sucked. I've got to say, in many ways Jonathan Hickman is very much like Grant Morrison... And I don't mean that as a compliment. Morrison has a habit of writing over the heads of his readers, and I can see that Hickman tends to do the same. I mean really, Xorn and Zorn, floating cities and mutant serums, and Eternals, Celestials and Deviants? Really? What ever happened to the days of straightforward storytelling? I hate the whole Eternal, Deviant, Celestial thing in the regular 616 Marvel U, and while Hickman gave it a slightly clever twist(and eliminated the giant space gods), it's not something the Ultimate Marvel Universe needed, at least in my opinion. The bottom line here is that I am glad this mini is over, because while I'll always support Hawkeye regardless of the universe, I'm happy I don't have to read anymore issue of this mini.
