"Six Nights in the Life of..."
Fraction can do no wrong with this title. Seriously. This comic has been my surprise favorite of the year and every single issue has been a pleasure to read. This issue, considering it is a bonus issue, was no different. It is following six nights in the life of Clint Barton and how his life as a hero influences his life as a human.
The issue jumps around like crazy but tells the reader what day it is by a note in the top corner of each page that is a shift in time. After reading it a second time I think that it reads like a normal memory. When people (at least I...) look back at a memory it doesn't always flow into the mind in chronological order. Sometimes small things spark an earlier memory that forces you to think back to that. The thing in this issue that causes further flashbacks is an arrow in a satellite dish...
Anyhow, I don't want to give away the plot. You should pick this book up no matter what. Don't download it, even if that is your thing (unless you do it through a legal venue such as Comixology or Marvel.com), so that you can not only support an amazing book but also an important cause. I know I sound like a broken record here with this title but I can't stress enough how amazing it is. Do yourself a favor and add it to your pull list now...
