    A solid continuation of the "Kate-in-California" tangent from Matt Fraction's "Hawkeye" run....3 years too late. I would probably rate this higher if it'd immediately followed Fraction's run, as it would have felt more fresh and also it would have caught me at a time in my life when I ...

    Kelly Thompson did a pretty decent job with Kate, even if this first volume didn't blow me out of the water. I didn't totally connect with Bishop and her world until it got a bit closer to the end of the arc when she does the team-up with Jessica Jones. Chad summed it up nicely i...

    Fun and playful but rooted in a very old school style of storytelling. Kate Bishop is Hawkeye for the west coast and make no mistake she is silly, sassy, and very playful in the writing and vocab. However the story is an old school P.I. crime story that gives a throwback to older comic...

    Why do you read comics? When I was a kid, the four-issue limited series was an intoxicating enterprise, because you could take a good idea and give it four issues of tight consideration, tell a good story and be done with it. One-shots and summertime annuals were even better, because i...

    Matt Fraction's Hawkeye really revamped the format of superhero comics, creating stories that were much more about their characters and their lives than their super heroics. Patsy Walker and Spider-Woman are some of the books that followed in its footsteps. And, the new Hawkeye does to...

    ORIGINALLY POSTED: https://bibliomantics.com/2018/01/01/... Hawkeye is back (no, not that Hawkeye, Kate Bishop Hawkeye) to once again take down crime on the west coast. Written by Kelly Thompson, who brings the sassy and spunky heroine to life in her solo comic book debut, the first...

    This was great! I was absolutely impressed. The spirit of Fraction's Hawkeye book is alive and well in these pages, though magically non-derivative of that work. Thompson and Romero have their own chemistry going on, and it's a lot of fun. Kate is an excellent character, and her dialog...

    This book has: 1. A relatable kick ass female hero 2. A Jessica Jones cameo 3. A Scooby team 4. A dragon And you should read it. ...

    I like Kelly Thompson, she super cool. I like Hawkeye, she's fun. So why didn't I "love" this? Well this is two arcs here. First is about a missing case. Well it starts off as a girl getting stalked and then goes missing. We slowly find out the reason behind it is a virus of sorts ...

    I hope this doesn't get cancelled like Mockingbird because it's filling that little void in my heart. FUNNY. Cute. Bad-ass. The snaaaaaark. ...

    A superhero detective story. Kate Bishop is the daughter of Hawkeye and she has struck off on her own as Hawkeye. She has opened her office and she's trying to make a living with her P.I. business. Toward the end of the volume, Jessica Jones shows up and Kate can learn about the busine...

    During this past week, I revisited one of my favourite comic runs, which is Hawkeye by Matt Fraction and David Aja. Published around the same time at the release of Joss Whedon's The Avengers, which somewhat underused Clint Barton, this solo title showcased the character when he's not ...

    Cute and fun character(s) but rather weak stories. Kate Bishop, P.I. (well, when she finds 200$ for the license) sets up on the west coast to find her father and gets involved in cases in the meantime. Two stories here. One with a mind-controlling cult and one with a Jessica Jon...

    Kelly Thompson puts on her best Matt Fraction impersonation. This book wants so badly to be Fraction's Hawkeye. Kate is just an inept as Clint. Even though she's trying to be a P.I., she bumbles into solutions to her cases. She's constantly quipping but her jokes often fall flat. Even ...

    Personal voice be awesome. World: The art is great, it's full of character and that's what this book needs. The sense of motion is not there, but the sense of style and tone is great. The world building is solid and gives a good foundation for Kate in her little piece of the MU. Her...

    Kate 'Hawkeye' Bishop flies solo, leaving the Big Apple to go "down these mean streets" of sunny So-Cal (territory lovingly mined by my fave pulp fictionists Chandler and MacDonald) to make it as a superhero AND private investigator. Did I mention her P.I. license hasn't been approved ...

    Story was decent enough, and the Jessica Jones part were cool. My only issue is how dialogue heavy the book is, especially the first few issues, but once it gets to the Jessica Jones part it got a bit better, and Kate is still a cool protag! If you have read the previous Matt Fraction ...

    Started off a little shaky/derivative, but I pretty much loved it by the end. The Jessica Jones cameo def helped. Also I liked the winky joke about 'I know what America would say about me and closets...' ...

    The start of a new series for one of my favourite Marvel superheroes ever! I loved this start to Kate Bishop's series! I didn't enjoy the last two issues as much as the rest and the art style was not my favourite, but all together is was still a thing of beauty! I'm anticipati...

    This just felt like a simpler version of Fractions story. The first arc involved a cult like group and the 2nd arc involved jessica jones and some actors in a way. They just never took off. A little to simple and easy going. The humour was well done and the action solid. Kate did seem ...

    Read in single issues. Really loved this first volume. Definitely going to continue reading Kate Bishop's solo title. Such a cool character with lots of sass! I'm so pleased she got her own book. Kudos to Kelly Thompson's writing! ...

    More like 3.5 stars but I'm rounding up because I enjoyed reading this. I'm super pleased we've gotten solo series for Kate and America. And no, not just because I ship them. These were the two stand out characters from Young Avengers to me and if we could get a David Alleyne book, ...
