Review: Hawkeye Freefall #2

Hawkeye Freefall #2

Huh, didn’t expect that ending at all. Hawkeye Freefall #2 brings the surprises, the laughs, and the action as the question of who Ronin is swirls.

Writer Matthew Rosenberg delivers a fantastic issue that is a worthy successor of the beloved Hawkeye comics over recent years.

Someone’s running around in Clint Barton’s old Ronin costume as Barton deals with being “the worst Avenger.” He does what he does best which is stumble at trying to good. He attends a charity event to impress his girlfriend. He fights a d-list villain and has trouble doing so. Through it all, the expected charm is all there and it’s hard to dislike Barton. He’s a jerk and at times an idiot. But, he’s our jerk and idiot.

What Rosenberg does really well is deliver laughs and pacing that puts a smile on the reader’s face. There’s a charm about it all. Though in reality, Barton’s an ass. He attempts to do the right thing though goes about it the wrong way. His heart is generally in the right place. He also delivers the witty one-liners and internal monologue so many wish we had. Rosenberg is able to give us the character interactions that are hard to not enjoy on a comedic level.

The art by Otto Schmidt is fantastic. The characters look solid but it’s the small details here. The suit Tony Stark wears to a charity event will keep you focused. Luke Cage’s shirt slowly being destroyed in battle is a sight gag that takes a bit to notice. It’s the little things here like body language that really makes the comic’s art shine.

Hawkeye Freefall #2 is a fantastic comic. There’s a fantastic mix of comedy and action. The former comes from some unexpected places like the Hood. The series is just a fun read that has you wanting to immediately read more. Then you get to the end of this issue and immediately want to go back and read it again.

Review: Atlantis Attacks #1

Atlantis Attacks #1

Writer Greg Pak has been building to something with his world of “Agents of Atlas.” Atlantis Attacks #1 brings various pieces together in a miniseries that pits the new superhero team against Namor.

Pak delivers a first issue that gets you to question who the villain really is and how to handle the situation. He also makes sure that it’s friendly for new readers. Text in the credits page will catch you up so that you can enjoy what follows.

The story is decent with our heroes not quite sure what to do about what’s going on as they deal with the threat of Atlantis against their high-tech world. There’s a disaster film tone about the comic. The Agents of Atlas have to scramble to stop tidal waves and evacuate individuals. That need to cover so much at times leads to a choppiness in the narrative.

The art by Ario Anindito is entertaining helping to add to the chaotic disaster feel of it all. There’s a visual sense at times that the heroes really are at a loss as to what to do. Rachelle Rosenberg’s colors help make the issue stand out with a bright hue to it all. There is at times a loss of detail but Anindito and Rosenberg have a lot covered at times and do en excellent job of conveying the blockbuster like action.

The issue is new-reader friendly and should begin a payoff for followers of Pak’s work. The debut is an entertaining one and a nice intro for what’s to come. While it’s not the best Pak has delivered it’s still fun in many ways. Atlantis Attacks #1 gives new heroes the mini-event spotlight they deserve.

Review: Hawkeye Freefall #1

Hawkeye Freefall #1

It’s a tough act to follow Matt Fraction and David Aja’s beloved run on Hawkeye. Hawkeye Freefall #1 has the unenviable task of being that series. It also succeeds in numerous ways the most realizing it isn’t Fraction and Aja.

Written by Matthew Rosenberg, Hawkeye Freefall #1 has Clint Barton doing his thing. Someone else has donned his old Ronin costume and fingers are pointing at Clint. But up to that part the comic is peppered with humor and the moments we’ve come to love involving Barton.

Rosenberg delivers a solid start of a series with some action, humor, and moments that get you to take pause and think. There’s dust-ups with modern classic villains and an exploration of what happens after they get arrested. Most importantly it has Clint Barton being Clint Barton. We get a sense of where he’s at and why he’s the dick we can’t help but like. It delivers a lot that’s know but like a nice pair of slippers, comfortable and familiar.

But, the comic is smart. Rosenberg brings his own voice to the comic while at the same time recognizing individuals may come to this expecting Fraction/Aja redux. There’s a familiarity without being a copy. You can tell the team has thought through what worked so well before.

That extends to the art by Otto Schmidt. Joined by letterer Joe Sabino the art too has similar beats at times with Aja without trying to copy what was done before. Schmidt brings his excellent individual style to it all. He delivers a visual pacing whose jokes are as much “physical” at times as they are part of the dialogue.

Hawkeye Freefall #1 feels like the start to a worthy successor of the beloved Hawkeye series. It has it’s own style and voice while also paying tribute in some ways to what worked so well. Hawkeye fans should be very pleased with this one.
