Welcome back to ‘Marvel NOW… NOW!’, the series in which we take a look at how the Marvel universe’s rebranding is progressing. This time I’ll be looking at Matt Fraction’s personal take on wisecracking Avenger, Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye.
Firstly, Matt Fraction and David Aja are somewhat of a pre-proven powerhouse combo. Having already worked together on the well-received Immortal Iron First line, along with Ed Brubaker (one of my personal favourite writers), I was fairly confident about picking up the first trade of Hawkeye on their names alone. It’s times like this I want to pat myself on the back for being awesome at being right.
