Hawkeye by Kelly Thompson


Hawkeye finally gets a lead on the top-secret case that brought her to Los Angeles in the first place - but to solve this mystery, Kate Bishop will have to take a good hard look at who she is and where she came from. Is she really ready to face the ghosts of her past? Maybe fixing things for a young client with oddly similar problems will help her fix herself! Probably not, though. At least she'll get to punch through her frustrations courtesy of...

Reviews Hawkeye

  • Chad
    Thompson does a great job of bringing intrigue in via Kate's family history. There's daddy issues, potential mother murders, fight clubs, clones and Madame Masque all packed in. The book looks like a modern day 70's pulp cover art come to life. One of those California detective novels but with a teenage detective who substitutes a bow for a gun.
  • Christy
    This continues to be one of my favorite books.

    Characters stories are the best! World: The art is great, cause it gives so much characters to the characters. The motion is also good and creative splash pages make me happy. The world building is solid but on the simple side. It's okay cause it's well constructed so yeah it's good. Story: Very simple and straightforward tale and it's good. The pacing is fast and the character moments throughout making readers care and fall in love with Kate and...

    [Read as single issues]Kate Bishop's favourite person in the entire world has returned - that's right, Madame Masque has come to town, and that means nothing but trouble for Kate and her pals. Plus: Clones! Pizza dog! Daddy issues! And a hell of a lot of arrows!Controversial opinion: I think this version of Hawkeye is better than the Fraction/Aja one. Kate's a much more interesting character, and the voice that Kelly Thompson gives her is wonderf...

    1. I can’t wait to read the next one.2. Where’s my effing Kate Bishop Netflix show?!?
  • Renata
    I definitely liked this more than vol 1--now that some of that setup is out of the way, we can get back to Kate Bishop being extremely Kate Bishop. PLUS a crossover with All-New Wolverine?? PLUS Lucky the Pizza Dog and Jonathan the Literal Wolverine are best friends now?????? What's not to love.

    Kate Bishop's Hawkeye was my favorite part of the Young Avengers and I'm so happy she's got her own book. She's smart, sassy and has great friends. I'm loving the storyline so far and I'm eager to see where things go next. Also, Wolverine crossover - who doesn't love one of those?

    This series is another where art and writing and everything simply comes together in unison. I've enjoyed Bishop's character from the beginning, and Thomson's writing only makes that more true--backed by the rest of the creative team. The captions, the use of panels--everything is on point here.Volume 2 brings Kate back with all the sass and attitude, all the adventure, and all the mystery that made volume 1 so excellent. With Bishop on the west ...
  • Shannon Appelcline
    Kelly Thompson's Kate Bishop comic continues to be excellent: this volume is even better than the first.That's in large part because of Kate's unique viewpoint and her great kick-assedness. From Young Avengers we know that she's a truly superior fighter, but that's played up even more here. Combine that with her immediate ability to read a room, depicted with hilarious art throughout this volume, and you get a really enthralling character.The plo...

  • Daniel Butcher
    Nice street level/backstory based action adventure with a likable Hawkeye.

    book 2 of 2018
  • Jenette
    I love Kate. Her whit, her snappy remarks, her fondness for frozen peas and dramatics and the way she absolutely always kicks ass.
  • Carlos Tineo
    Not enough Lucky.

    I JUST WANT KATE BISHOP TO KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE HEREverything she's in is consistently good :'))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
  • Heatherblakely
    Issue 7: Kate backstory! (Though, where is her sister? Why isn't she in any of these flashbacks?) Little Kate in her bathing suit with the sides cut out!Issue 8: This is more serious than the first six issues, but I love learning about Kate's family.Issue 9: Listen, obviously Amerikate is my #1 endgame, but if Kate and Detective Rivera hook up I won't hate it (just admit Kate is queer, Marvel, come on). This case was over pretty quickly--I know t...
  • Lindsey
    Read in single issues.Loved this second volume even more than the first & I LOVED the first volume! Read this comic!
  • Joshua Buhs
    Getting a little snug.The plotting in the second of the Kate Bishop TPBs is better than the first, smoother. The art continues to be very good; even the final issue, which is a bit of filler that does not advance any of the story arcs and is by Walsh, who did pretty poor work on earlier issues.Kate remains an engaging character; her sass has not worn through, and she is growing, slowly. All of which is good.I wanted to see an expansion of some of...
  • Avi Grundner
    I seriously love this series. Now that Kate is more settled in her new surroundings, the big plot is unfolding- this trade sets up a new quest, and it involves delving into Kate's family. It's incredibly satisfying to finally bridge the gap in her background, so now as a reader her motivation is very clear. It makes you root for her even more.Anyway, Kate is great in this trade. Determined and angry, but still quippy. The writing is just so good,...
  • David
    This art-style is growing on me, and I enjoyed the story of this volume so much more than the last one. Even if Madame Masque didn't seem to be as much of a threat as she was in Matt Fraction's days, I liked how personal the story-line was to Kate, and I enjoyed the flashbacks (yeyy, purple!). I loved having Lucky back (he's so cute), and he even helped Kate by biting that bad guy and providing the means for an escape route! Yeyy, useful Lucky! T...

    4.5Volume 2 of Hawkeye: Kate Bishop collects issues 7-12. I am enjoying this series so much! In this volume we get to learn more about Kate, particularly about her parents. Also, Laure Kinney shows up which was fantastic! I hope she shows up again! The only thing I did not really like about this volume was the unnecessary romance and the start of a love-triangle type situation. It wasn’t a big part of this volume (in fact it was really only one...
  • Nate
    Kelly Thompson is a great new voice in comics at the peak of her powers in Hawkeye. By taking the title character to the west coast you pull her away from decades of plot lines and continuity and Thompson is able to craft a world that feels steeped in old Hollywood but still fresh and new. Thompson gets Kate Bishop's voice better than anyone else I've read and and the artwork has a kind of soft focus with the high end graphic design touches that ...
  • Norman
    I wish I liked this more. It was so tedious... without any connection. Something felt missing because I absolutely loved the first one. It's not that it was written poorly or anything. Actually, it was pretty "good" in that sense -- it just felt so shallow to me. I don't know. I'm sad to be giving up on this one.
  • Lindsay Heller
    This might be even better than the first volume. Kate's hilarious and bad ass and now we get some mysteries from her past that only up the ante. Her crew was minimal in this arc but they're still pretty amusing. Overall, yeah, still diggin' it.

  • Iris Nevers
    YES!!!! HAWKEYE IS LITERALLY THE BESSST!!! i'm seriesly 1000000% upset about the fact that she's been cancelled
  • Ken French
    Kate is at least as good a character as Clint, so I like that this series is concentrating on her at the moment.
