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.
  • Diz
    Kate Bishop (Hawkeye) has a lot of personality, and it comes out in her frequent jokes (often bad, but lovable) and her expressive face and gestures (both artists in this book do a fantastic job of this). I'm a big fan of the art, and the story has some nice twists in it that are a lot of fun to read. More Kate Bishop, please.

    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...

    This continues to be one of my favorite books.

    Kate "don't call me 'lesser Hawkeye' or I WILL kick your @$$, you idiot" Bishop nicely sidesteps a sophomore slump and again performs triumphantly in her solo title. I'm not sure this was (warning: archery reference) an inner 10 ring shot like her initial volume but it was still pretty damn good.Hawkeye takes on the unstoppable Madame Masque (not a spoiler - they have an action pose on the rear cover) again when attempting to uncover - cue the th...

    [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...
  • Logan
    Still a pretty solid run! I think out of all the female iterations (of traditionally male characters) that Marvel have created, Jane Foster Thor and Kate Bishop Hawkeye are the most well written and best characters in their own right! Overall the story is very engaging and interesting and the artwork blends with the story well! The last issue with Laura Wolverine left a bit to be desired, but overall another good volume!

    1. I can’t wait to read the next one.2. Where’s my effing Kate Bishop Netflix show?!?
  • Frédéric
    Another cool and pleasant volume of Hawkeye. I learned of Kate Bishop's existence with Matt Fraction's excellent previous run on the title which gives you some clue on my level of knowledge of the character. Seems like Katie has some understable daddy issues since she suspects him to have had her mother killed.This volume centers on this aspect of Kate's life- the reason she moved west in the first place- with a bit of Madame Masque in between an...

    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.
  • Emily Randolph-Epstein
    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?
  • Sana
    'Uh. I don't think he can breathe, Kate.''Do we care? Okay, fine, we care.'Kate, the only band-aid wearing superhero for miles. I just love her quirky personality so much that I'm starting to feel like this is the best version that I've read of hers. I mean, bad jokes and street adventures for days haha. Also, it doesn't get better than Kate yelling 'Are you not entertained?!' to a bunch of sweaty boxers in a fight club like I love this dork, nev...
  • Josh
    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 ...
  • Rod Brown
    My main problem with the first volume was that Kate Bishop was such a generic a character that almost any other character could have been plugged into the same story. This volume starts to reveal some of the past events that went into creating the heroic and adventurous young woman who has been bouncing through these pages. I'm enjoying the story twists and humor, especially the self-deprecating bits about the overuse of clones. (I think there ne...
  • 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...
  • Reme
    Un volumen con un tono más dramático que el anterior, dónde vemos por fin el confrontamiento de Kate con su padre, dónde empezamos a ver las primeras pinceladas de sus planes y todos los teje manejes que se trae entre manos, y también conocemos más detalles sobre el pasado de Kate. Aun teniendo este tono más serio, cumple las mismas funciones que el tomo anterior: mucha acción, entretenimiento y una Kate Bishop súper carismática y fiel ...
  • Pietra Ibrisimovic
    i loved learning a bit about Kate's past AND I LOVED GETTING TO SEE LAURA AND GETTING TO MEET GABBY (it was my first time reading about her ok i have no idea WHOMST she is) AND CLINT MY BABY THE ENDING MADE ME SO HAPPY I LOVE THESE TWO SO MUCH
  • Daniel Butcher
    Nice street level/backstory based action adventure with a likable Hawkeye.
  • Nidah (SleepDreamWrite)
    Good volume.

    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.
  • Fiona
    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...
  • Dakota Morgan
    New (and improved) Hawkeye, Kate Bishop, continues to shine with Kelly Thompson at the helm. In this volume, she must confront family issues, Madame Masque, clones, and an underwhelming fight club. Her friend group continue to be a delight. The fact that they're all unpowered makes these volumes more Kate Bishop than Hawkeye. That's a breath of fresh air in the Marvel universe where explosions and superpowered beatdowns are far more common.I'm no...

    “I have to stop saying ‘Bring It’ because then they do and it’s super annoying. Imma start saying ‘Leave It’ or whatever the opposite is.” Fight Clubs, Madame Masque, and clones. What more could you ask for in a Kate Bishop comic? Of course, throw in her sass and bad (and often ill timed) jokes and you’ve got a hit!This issue explains more of Kate’s daddy issues, and more about her mother, and more things about herself that com...
  • Garrett
    Continues RIGHT where the other volume left off, which is refreshing in a world of crossovers and el gigante events, and is exactly the same in terms of tone, snark, writing, and the through line of the main character, Kate Bishop. She'd be worth reading about in any story she's in, and that seems to be the key to good comics and good storytelling in general; I like who we're on a journey with, and so I trust that her writer has a place I'm going...
