In a world filled with superhero titans like Captain America, Iron Man, and the Hulk, it’s easy to forget about Hawkeye. That is, until all-star writer Matt Fraction teamed up with pen-and-paper wizard David Aja.
Matt Fraction elevates Clint Barton’s relatively modest character arc. After all, Hawkeye is the everyman in a universe of superior beings, and Fraction makes that story compelling. Illustrator David Aja really outdid himself too. He uses a minimalist style that harkens back to the Golden Age of Comics. It’s a remarkable feat that reads both modern and timeless.
What we’re saying is don’t write Hawkeye off. Because, believe it or not, it could be the best thing Marvel released in the 2010s.
