    Overall, Wastelanders: Hawkeye #1 is an exciting first chapter to Clints adventures in the Wastelands. The story by Sacks is a great character development. The art by the creative team is astounding. Altogether, a story that is the best version of the 80s training montage. Read Full Review

    Ibraim Roberson, who was also the artist on Wastelanders: Wolverine #1, is a great fit for these stories. Combined with Dijjo Lima, the pair ensure Wastelanders: Hawkeye #1 has the right mix of grit and action from start to finish. Read Full Review

    Wasterlanders: Hawkeye #1 is certainly not a must read book but if you like the characters and the lore surrounding the Wastelands, you don't want to miss this sweet little slice of that mythos. Read Full Review

    As a muddled tie-in, Watelanders: Hawkeye #1 has much going against it. Yet Sacks, Ibraim, Lima and Petit have achieved the difficult task of creating a fun and satisfying Clint Barton story by knowing their limitations and embracing the classic elements of the character. It is simply a shame that Marvel has not given Barton more attention during a time when the spotlight is on him. Read Full Review

    Im only slightly familiar with this time period and the characters within it, but I enjoyed this version of Clint Barton.  Ive always liked Clint, especially back in the West Coast Avengers days, and here, he seems his usual glib and impulsive self.  Its strange seeing him in a robe with the long beard, resembling a combination of Robin Hood meets Gandalf as he races across the Wasteland.  I understand that in this dystopic future setting, no ones going to be sporting gaudy costumes, but I feel the old wizard look doesnt suit him, but everything else about him was on point.

    Wastelanders: Hawkeye #1 gives fans an Old Man side story that might not be essential but was still enjoyable. Ethan Sacks has fun with it all, while Ibraim Roberson's art makes it all look great. Read Full Review

    If this was a full series centered around Hawkeye in this world, I'm not sure that I would be on-board with it. However, given that it's simply a one-off read, it makes for an exciting return trip to this world. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Dec 20, 2021

    While Wastelanders: Hawkeye #1 never really wows me, it isn't bad either. If you are looking for a story that plays heavily into Hawkeye's trademark ability to annoy those around him this might land well for you. If, however, you need something more than this one note to make a comic worth reading, you might want to give this one a pass. Read Full Review
