Collects Hawkeye #1-5 & Young Avengers Presents #6. The breakout star of this summer’s blockbuster Avengers film, Clint Barton – aka the self-made hero Hawkeye – fights for justice! With ex-Young Avenger Kate Bishop by his side, he’s out to prove himself as one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes! SHIELD recruits Clint to intercept a packet of incriminating evidence – before he becomes the most wanted man in the world.
Fraction and Aja brought to Hawkeye the same, magnificent comics magic they did to Iron Fist – except they upped the humor and the humanity.
The result is a tremendous tale of an ordinary, flawed, but pathologically heroic character. The first part of a longer storyline, this first volume was nonetheless groundbreaking in tone and style.
