Jim McCann is a longtime fan of Hawkeye and Mockingbird, and writer of the just announced ongoing series, Hawkeye & Mockingbird from Marvel Comics!  Fellow Clint Barton fan, Josh talks to Jim about the famed archer and his wife, the return to the purple costume, the roots of his affection for the characters, and his still young writing career.  We also talk about McCann's upcoming original graphic novel with Archaia Studios Press, Return of the Dapper Men

Talksplode highlights:

  • Coming out of the heroic age, Hawkeye & Mockingbird #1 will debut in June with an extra sized issue, following a short story in Enter the Heroic Age in May.
  • Clint and Bobbie will continue their adventures with their group, the World Counter-Terrorism Agency, or the W.C.A., which sounds a lot like an acronym for West Coast Avengers, complete with a new high tech headquarters
  • The title will be set up by Brian Michael Bendis in New Avengers #63 and #64.

    This seems to be the Marvel analog to the Green Arrow and Black Canary comic. However, unlike GA & BC, I like Hawkeye and Mockingbird.  I’ll pick up the first couple of issues and see if I like this series.

  7. my goodness.

  8. AlanRob AlanRob says:

    When you guys interviewed Jim at NYCC last year he was INCREDIBLY excited about New Avengers Reunion.  I can only imagine how hard it must have been for him to contain this when he found out at San Diego.

  9. Josh Flanagan josh (@jaflanagan) says:

    And to his credit, he never spilled the beans to us.  He wanted to though… ;-)

  10. AlanRob AlanRob says:

    Well when somone loves characters as much as he does, it only makes me want to read his stories even more.

  11. JesTr JesTr says:
