      1. I completely forgot about the show. There is so much good stuff going on TV wise it is hard to keep track. I just finished The Magic Order which is also being made into a show on Netflix. There is just not enough time!

          1. It is gorgeous. The artwork is stellar. The story is decent, I think it is a little overshadowed by just how stupid good the artwork is. It should make a killer TV show. I think it is definitely worth the read.

  1. Ace review my friend! I’d heard a lot of praise for this Hawkeye series as it was coming out and always intended to check it out, but, as always, other things took precedence and it slipped down the list. I liked Matt Fraction’s Iron Man run and actually have the Iron Fist volumes but not got around to reading them yet.

    I’ll definitely be checking out the streaming series…depending on when we get Disney+ in the UK which sounds as though it’ll be influenced by this run, so I’ll probably get around to reading this eventually. It’s a shame about the changing around of artists which can often spoil it for me…man, the art on a lot of Marvel titles these days leaves a lot to be desired (the seem to put all their best onto the Star Wars titles and the rest have been jumping ship to DC), what happened to the days when we got a consistent and lengthy run with a creative team a la the Bendis/Maleev Daredevil series or Brubaker/Epting Captain America.

    1. Thanks, Chris! I think you should totally push it back up on your priorities now, before the show comes out. I’ve only read the first volume of Sex Criminals and I wasn’t much of a fan of the whole sex humour in it, which is also present in Hawkeye but dosed appropriately. And yes, it’s a bit sad when good artwork is switched around in-expectantly. I wish they took into consideration that individuals issues will always eventually get collected…

      1. Btw, I finished watching the 3 episodes of the BBC series based on “Ten Little Indians”.

        There might be something rather wrong with me, because I’m having a difficult time finding something that fully satisfies me as of late. However, it could also be the fact that I didn’t binge those episodes. Instead, I split each episode into two separate watching sessions. It could be the culprit and explain why I wasn’t as invested in it as I thought I would be. The premise is a great idea and it reminds me of a movie I saw years ago (can’t remember the title) in which a group of people had to figure out which one of them was a killer (the reviews were mediocre, but I remember enjoying it).

        I kept asking the characters why they were spreading out at every opportunity right after they agreed to stay together in a group. How predictable is that?

        But I did enjoy the ending. My partner not so much.

        1. Oh man, I do hate when they suddenly become more dumb for the sake of plot progression. This happens ALL THE TIME in horror movies hahahah I’ll still give the show a shot in the near future for the sake of having at least seen one adaptation, a modern one at that. Will you give the 1945 movie a try or are you more of a modern cinema/series viewer?

  2. I missed this somehow!! I like the cover alot and admit I would be intrigued enough to pick it up… but the inner art isn’t for me. There is something basic about it. But I could be wrong. You’re stingy on the pages. 😉 I do love the idea of getting more on Hawkeye and I didn’t know he shared the role with a woman. That is a neat concept. Sounds compelling as always Lashaan!!

    1. I can totally see how the artwork gives you that impression but I’m telling you, there’s some very original ideas that come with the style and having a story centered around these two heroes makes it even more enticing! 😉 Thank you so much for taking the time to read all these posts, Dani! I really appreciate it! And of course, you don’t have to read them all huh! 😁
