Review: Wastelanders: Hawkeye #1

Wastelanders: Hawkeye #1

As Disney+ ramps up production on a slate of Marvel intellectual properties, one wonders if they only continued on Netflix. As when the original announcement was made those years ago, fans were excited at the possibilities. When Daredevil first premiered, it made all the superhero shows on television at the time, seem mediocre. Then came rest of the Defenders solo shows, which showed that you can tell good stories with superheroes as protagonists.

One of the best things about the Daredevil show was the introduction of Stick. In the comics, he was a better mentor than Whistler was to Blade, often giving Matt, tough love. As I feel if there more seasons, we would have seen much more of the character and maybe a familiar story arc or two. Ethan Sacks and Ibraim Roberson bring back Hawkeye as he loses his sight to be trained by the one man who how to move forward, in Wastelanders: Hawkeye #1.

We’re taken to the Goblin State Park deep in the Wastelands, where the territory is being ruled by a ruthless warlord Marko The Terrible, as an elderly Hawkeye. What Hawkeye doesn’t count on is who is Marko’s muscle, Juggernaut but he gets help from an unexpected ally, Matt Murdock AKA Stick. Stick realizing that Clint is losing his sight, decides to train him on how to fight without sight,as he soon finds about himself, that he is even more dangerous and a better shooter with Matt’s training. By issue’s end, Matt sends Clint on one last mission , which also serves as a lesson, that even though he lost his sight, he will never lose his memories.  

Overall, Wastelanders: Hawkeye #1 is an exciting first chapter to Clint’s adventures in the Wastelands. The story by Sacks is a great character development. The art by the creative team is astounding. Altogether, a story that is the best version of the 80s training montage.

Return to the Wastelands of Old Man Logan in Wastelanders

This December, return to the post-apocalyptic Wastelands of Old Man Logan in five all-new stories set in the Marvel future where heroes have fallen, villains have won, and your favorite characters defy all odds to survive. Brought to you by all-star creators including writers Steven S. DeKnight, Ethan Sacks, Rich Douek, and Torunn Grønbekk, these five one-shots will focus on Wolverine, Hawkeye, Doctor Doom, Star-Lord, and making their first appearance in the Wastelands, Black Widow.

DeKnight, known for his work on Netflix’s Daredevil and Wolverine: Black, White & Blood, will lead the return alongside artist Ibrahim Moustafa in Wastelanders: Wolverine, an all-new story set in the days after the conclusion of the original Old Man Logan, as he fights once again to save the people of the Wastelands who have been crushed under the heel of the Red Skull and Bruce Banner! The super villains united and took out most of the world’s super heroes decades ago, and while the man known as Logn attempted to live a life of peace, he had to pop the claws once again to do what he does best! But saving the day looks different with the Baby Hulk under his care. Is Logan doing the right thing by protecting the progeny of the HULK or dooming what’s left of the war-torn world? Logan may not have long to ponder if he is crushed by the adamantium armor of his newfound enemy Downfall! Featuring a main cover by Josemaria Casanovas and connecting variant by Steve McNiven.

Wastelanders mastermind Ethan Sacks, writer of both Old Man Hawkeye and Old Man Quill, is also back with artist Ibraim Roberson to bring you a never-before-told story of Hawkeye’s training with Stick—the man formerly known as Daredevil—in Wastelanders: Hawkeye! Clint Barton’s sight may be gone, but his will to avenge is stronger than ever, and with the training and expert guidance of Matt Murdock, arrows will fly again! But what is Murdock’s actual target? And how will this change Hawkeye’s path in the Wastelands? This is one issue YOU can’t afford to miss! Featuring covers by Casanovas and McNiven.

The Mighty Valkyries writer Torunn Grønbekk and rising star Julius Ohta explore the complex nature of everyone’s favorite tyrant in Wastelanders: Doom! Doctor Doom helped wipe out the heroes on the Day the Villains Won, but even as he rules his domain in the Wastelands, a greater destiny calls to him. When a mysterious power blocks his oversight of a particular region, what he discovers will have ripple effects across the Wastelanders stories! With a cover by Casanovas.

Writer Rich Douek makes his Marvel Comics debut alongside artist Brent Peeples in Wastelanders: Star-Lord! The legendary Star-Lord has fallen on hard times. With the Guardians of the Galaxy disbanded, Peter Quill returned to Earth to find it a wasteland unlike anything he’s seen across the stars – heroes dead, villains in power. While he’s taken out one threat, others remain in the Wastelands, and Star-Lord’s own desire to assuage his guilt for being off-world during the calamity will land him right in the middle of another! Will Quill overcome the mysterious force waiting for him at the site of his lost love’s death? Or is she not really dead at all? With a cover by Casanovas.

Bookending the saga, DeKnight will team up with artist Well-Bee to introduce the Wastelander’s take on Natasha Romanoff in Wastelanders: Black Widow. The Lizard King has grown monstrous and deadlier than ever as the lord of his southern domain. But when rumor breaks that critical information is believed to be stored in his impenetrable fortress, only the greatest spy of all is up to the infiltration: the deadly Black Widow! But who is she, and how has she survived this many decades in the Wastelands undetected? With a cover by Casanovas.
