Coming off of his first arc teaming up with Red Hulk, Spider-Man finds himself patrolling alongside Hawkeye, the Avengers’ own Green Arrow fan. Zeb Wells maintains the touch of humor that has characterized this series so far (which is kind of a roller coaster for this issue, actually, since every few pages the story’s broken up with another doom-and-gloom ad for Avengers vs. X-men).

The, er, chemistry that Spidey had with Red Hulk is largely reversed with Hawkeye as Peter struggles to adapt his methodology to Clint’s loose-cannon (or bow, i suppose) tendencies. The storytelling’s pretty simple, though not in a bad way, and overall this issue feels like its main job is introducing readers to Hawkeye in case they don’t know who he is – probably because of the Avengers movie.

Though some of the characterization on Hawkeye is a bit heavy-handed, the story stays upbeat and comes to a decent character payoff for all Avengers involved. That said, I’m glad that it looks like this particular story is a done-in-one, as I’m not sure it has the legs for another issue. Besides, I’m all for more new and different guest stars in this series rather than long arcs with just one.

Story: 3 - Good
Art: 4 - Very Good


  1. I am surprised you gave the Land art a 4. That’s encouraging.

    And, yes, I think this series will do much better if it is more one-and-done and less multi-issue arcs.

  2. I’d take two issue stories and maybe a 3 once in awhile as well.
