|I really do love Hawkeye|
The premise is Hawkeye when he's not an Avenger. We know, a lot of people know Hawkeye mainly from his role as an Avenger, but he really shines as a solo artist in these books. The Clint Barton in these issues is darkly fun and a bit hapless at moments. His life is in a constant state of chaos. Balancing all that is Kate Bishop, the other Hawkeye, a pretty young woman who has fighting skills to rival Clint's and seems to have her life a bit more together.
What really drew me in to the books was the art. It is a bit minimalist and has an economical use of color, with the same shades being recycled and remixed in a way that really spoke to me as an art student. This series should be a part of any color theory class.

Everything in these books seems planned down to the last detail, and it all just sort of sings. If you have a chance pick up the trades, they contain extra art and previews in the bakc that really make them worth the little bit of extra money.
Are any of you a fan of good ol fashioned capes comics?
