Hawkeye Volume 2, collecting issues 6-11 of the series by Matt Fraction and David Aja tells five individual stories that all continue the story of our down on his luck Avenger just trying to live his life as a New York City landlord, while dealing with his protege Kate Bishop, Ex’s who just happen to be Superheroes, a Mobster who wants him dead, and his dog Lucky.
The story doesnt feel like your normal superhero fare and the amazing art by David Aja looks like it would fit more in a Chris Ware comic than a Marvel one really helps the series stand out. Theres a great issue about the effect of Hurricane Sandy on the New Jersey coast and issue 11 tells the entire story from a dog’s view of the human world.
One of the best solo Avenger stories of this decade continues with the volume, and the best part of it is, there’s no superheroics to be found in its pages.
