All-New Hawkeye #004

Writer: Jeff Lemire
Artist: Ramon Perez
Colors: Ian Herring

"Wunderkammer: Part Four of Five"

Jeff Lemire had some incredibly huge shoes to fill when he jumped on the Hawkeye book after Matt Fractions amazing run, but he is doing a great job. The continued dual story telling of Clint and Barney as kids running side-by-side with Kate and Clint today dealing with the experiment kids from the Hydra base is done very well. It shows how Clint grew to the man that he is today and why he ends up differently from his brother, giving a great back story that I honestly didn't know too well considering I hadn't really cared for the character before Fraction. 

This issue contained a lot more about the past than the current day. The top 2/3 of the page told the past while single, long stretched panels filled the bottom which showed what was going on in Clint's apartment (there is no dialogue there, only in the past). Ramon Perez's art fills the page and tells such a great story that dialogue isn't always needed, the script is just felt. I cling to this book much like I did to the Fraction Hawkeye. Do yourself a favor and pick it up if you enjoy comics at all, you wont regret it. 

Rating: 10/10 Pick of the Week!
