  1. damn, Kate needs to work on them chicken legs

  2. I hope this signals a change of focus onto Kate.

  3. Status Quo change… Does Kate decide to work for Madame Masque?

  4. I absolutely LOVE this book! One of only three that I’m currently buying from Marvel.

  5. I love this book. I cannot wait to see what Kate will be up to in LA and what that will mean for Clint back in NY

  6. Madame Masque?

    I’m in!

  7. I see issue #13 has been delayed until Sep 18th. This better be really good to tide us over until then.

    I am going to be getting the 2nd TPB tomorrow, but I read the first one so quickly I know it’s not gonna last. They need three different art teams – Aja, Pulido, and Francavilla – so this book comes out monthly.

    • Yeah, all the issues have been pushed back. Next three are now scheduled for mid-September, late-October, late-November. The wait is gonna kill me!

      The annual should be awesome, though!

    Wow. It’s Hawkeye via Love & Rockets.
    Amazing work from all involved. POTW.

    right I’m finally going to jump on board hawkeye with this issues. Like the idea of alternating between Kate and Clint. or I think I do.

    This was really cool and fun. It was a very solid week, so I don’t know if it’s my pick, but it’s up there.

  11. Continues to be a really fun read, I’m glad to get a Kate-centric issue this month. I’ve been loving the variety of styles that Marvel has been delivering with their books.

  12. I love Javier Pulido’s work on this book as much, but in a different way, than David Aja’s. I wish Pulido was the one doing all the future Kate issues but I’m sure Annie Wu will do great though.

  13. Was I the only one who didn’t like this? I felt the art was all over the place and Fraction overwrote this issue to death, I kept turning the page and groaning at the sheer amount of text on the page. Lots of text is fine when it’s interesting, I just didn’t find any of this issue interesting.

  14. This was a very fun read with lots of different styles. I really did like the anime style thought bubbles and really nicely put together one shot story that shows where the character is going.

  15. Man, this series makes me so effing HAPPY. Beautiful stuff. 🙂

  16. I didn’t like the issue. Too much silhouette used even in daytime scenes. I love Javier Pulido’s art but this seems he got lazy on this issue. It’s like reading a magazine but bits were cut out by your kid brother with a pair of scissors.

    The art on this did nothing for me. The use of silhouettes felt lazy rather than clever, as I suppose was the intention.
    I liked the story though, so too bad about the art.

  18. This was awesome. I loved seeing Kate outsmart Madam Masque. Her little thought bubbles were very unique too. Showing her going solo on the west coast is going to be great I think.

  19. This was very fun but not worth 4.99 for 28 pages. F U Marvel.
