    This continues to be one of my favorite books.

    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 wonderful. The fact that she has all of these extra issue

    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 wonderful. The fact that she has all of these extra issues to unpack to do with her parents and Madame Masque are just icing on the cake.

    The artwork is pretty much flawless; Leonardo Romero has really made this book his own, with some beautifully choreographed fight scenes and super-inventive set pieces that just look amazing. I love the Target Vision thing that pops up every issue. The art perfectly lends itself to Thompson's humour. Michael Walsh also draws another fill-in issue, and he meshes well with Romero's style; I'm surprised he hasn't been given another ongoing somewhere.

    With the news that this book has just been cancelled (of course), I'd recommend it even more - enjoy it now, while it lasts.

    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?

    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 coast, we get to see some new environments and les

    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 coast, we get to see some new environments and less of the superhero foot-traffic that sometimes permeates Marvel stories. As such, Kate's character driven, street level adventures feel very free and focused on her. And the character cameos that do take place are effective for story and character interaction.

    Volume 2 takes us deeper into Kate's past, hitting some strong emotional notes while sacrificing none of the quirkiness that makes these comics such a pleasure to read. In short, "Hawkeye: Kate Bishop" is a delightful series, and one that I am highly excited to continue reading.

    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

    The plots in this second volume are also terrific. We get more on Kate's past, on the secrets of her father, and on her interplay with Madame Masque, and all of it feels important and interesting.

    The only real downside is that the supporting cast that Thompson worked so hard to build in the first volume is entirely characterless, except as a mob.

    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 Co. The villain this arc was strong and personal

    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 Co. The villain this arc was strong and personal and a great continuation of the last arc.

    Characters: Kate is great, putting her with these new friends also amazing. She's just so gully realized and strong. The villain this arc was also strong and the link to Kate was good, the dialog between them was so good.

    I'm impressed. Thompson has bug shoes to fill after Fraction and Lemire and she makes Kate so full of personal voice that this series is a must read.

    Onward to the next book!

    1. I can’t wait to read the next one.

    2. Where’s my effing Kate Bishop Netflix show?!?

  • Renata

    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.

  • 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.
