  1. This is an terrific little book!

  2. Can’t wait for this!

  3. Just read the first two issues because I’ve not seen anything but fantastic praise for this title. So glad I did, loved the two issues that I grabbed. Will be catching up with the rest of the title for sure.

  4. This book goes from an A+ to a B- when Aja is off art duties.

  5. Subscribed.

    Hoping it continues to be great.

  6. Didn’t #4 just come out last week? Marvel double-shipping it now?

    • I was curious too, so I checked. Hawkguy #4 was Nov. 21–two weeks ago. #5 comes out on Dec. 5, and #6 on Dec. 19–two weeks later. So they’re double-shipping a bit. Looks like they will return to a monthly schedule, at least for the time being, when #7 is released on Jan. 16.

    • Just one coming out in February too.

    • Think it might be two in february. Originally it was one but they changed it all by choosing to release a Hurricane Sandy special issue.

  7. I read that David Aja couldn’t keep on schedule because he was working on a special issue #7 and his proceeds are going towards Hurricane Sandy relief. He is a classy sir and makes me enjoy his work even more.

  8. Fantastic issue but quick question, maybe it’s something i never noticed reading other Marvel books. But when did the Sam Jackson Nick Fury come into continuity with the Marvel Universe? I’m pretty sure i saw him elsewhere in other titles but i guess im just really thinking about it now. And in the last panel, Nick Fury’s father?

  9. I’m liking this well enough even without Aja. Aja puts it over the top, no question, but I like Pulido just fine.

  10. I have to admit, I thought it was all about David Aja. I thought I didn’t really like Matt Fraction.
    I was terribly, terribly wrong.
    Let me make myself perfectly clear: seconds after reading this, I was absolutely ecstatic about the fact that I read this….this is one of the best things I’ve ever read, floppy wise.
    I’ve always really loved Pulido, and he did awesome work here, but it’s the synergy twixt author and artist that is killing in this series…doubly impressed that that’s the case with rotating artists (which is a mechanism I’m not usually down with).
    Hope to see more of Aja…but I’d kinda like to see Marcos Martin do something for Clint and Kate.

  11. Last issue was definitely jarring without the Aja, but I feel like Pulido really found his groove with this one. And although the final swerve was a little to clean, removing some of the moral greys around this story, it was so clever and in character that I couldn’t help but smile. POTW.

    • I liked this comic a lot but thought the weakest moment was the Maria Hill save and that action sequence. Looked corny. Still 4/5

    • Pulido definitely had some great panel work and storytelling in this issue. However, @scorpion, I think you might mean ‘pulpy’ and not corny. My thoughts were that they were trying to go a little ‘tongue in cheek’ with that scene for humor’s sake. It definitely is a different type of art for an action scene, but I felt it worked, for humor’s sake, at least.

  12. i wish i could find issue #1 so i can read this series.

  13. This one was the weakest I felt. There were cool moments, but the ending kinda fell flat.

    • While I agree this has been the weakest of the first five issues, there were still enough cool moments to warrant getting four stars… I’ll take a weak Hawkeye issue like this over a lot of other mediocre series’ high points.

  14. Another awesome issue. Yeah, I missed Aja on art but it was still really good.
