Light Week? Try Hawkeye and Mockingbird #1 and The Pro

Sometimes you look down at that pull list that you just made and you realize there aren't many books on it and that you've got a light week! And that just won't do! You can't go all the way down to the comic book store for just a handful of books. It's at times like these that you need some suggestions on new comics to try. Well, luckily, we're here for you.


Josh says try:

Hawkeye & Mockingbird #1

Hawkeye & Mockingbird #1

By Jim McCann & David Lopez

It is a light week, and I know a lot of you are probably wondering if you should pick this up. Well, I'm saying yes, yes you should pick this up, and here's why: 1) It's about Hawkeye. 2) It's about Mockingbird. 3) That man is not dressed like Ronin. 4) That man is not a teenage girl named Kate with Oakley sunglasses. 5) The better a Hawkeye book does, the more awesome the world is. 6) The preview was a hell of a lot of action and fun. 7) Jim McCann is about as enthusiastic a creator as you can hope for. 8) Wrist arrows. 9) Clint Barton loves arrows like nobody's business. 10) It's about Hawkeye.


Conor says try:

The Pro

The Pro

By Garth Ennis & Amanda Conner

I bought this prestige one shot (or, as it is now sometimes called, "Mini Graphic Novel") when it was first published in 2002. I don't remember much about the book other than I really enjoyed it. Now, 8 years later, my appreciation for writer Garth Ennis and artist Amanda Conner has only grown, so I'm getting this new printing. Also, I have no idea where my old copy is. If Garth Ennis writing, and Amanda Conner drawing, a superhero parody starring a prostitute with super powers who joins up with a thinly veiled Justice League sounds up your alley, then The Pro is not to be missed. 


  1. Bulletproof Coffin #1 looks good too.

  2. The Pro does indeed sound "up my alley".

  3. Hmm I think josh needs to give me more reasons for pick up Hawkeye. 🙂

    For a super light week, which everyone seems to have, I’d say get the first Jokers Asylum issue. It involves the Riddler; it has a new writer on board but it does have Clayton Henry on art. He did the great arc on Incredible Herc (Love and War) plus he did the infamous winking panel. If your a fan of Herc, then you’ll love the art in this. 

  4. I bought a second printing AND the over-sized Pro hardcover at the same convention in Toronto not five minutes apart from eachother from different vendors…and it was an awesome move! It’s a great, fucked up book. It’s like a precursor to The Boys but WAAAAYYYY better

  5. The Pro should definitely be up everyone’s alley – I think I actually own two copies, the original and the last reprinting they did of it. Really twisted stuff.

  6. I have The Pro on the way, so I’m glad to hear Conor endorse it.  I think my mind went through that same progression; Amanda Conor drawing Garth Ennis’ prostitute with super powers…sounds fun.
