In terms of whom I like more, in my eyes, Hawkeye surpassed Green Arrow some years ago and, anyway, I've always thought Hawkeye the more interesting character from jump. Unlike the millionaire Oliver Queen, Clint Barton, brash and underpriveleged, immediately comes off as an underdog, and while Hawkeye may seem like a Robin Hood/Green Arrow knockoff, at least he wasn't getting dissed for ripping off Batman's schtick. Hawkeye at least never had an embarrassing Hawkeye Cave or Hawkeye plane. TALES OF SUSPENSE #57, reprinted here, features Hawkeye's debut as he encounters the then red spy, Black Widow, and matches his trick arrows against Iron Man's hi-tech gadgetry, with the irony being that Iron Man was the very hero who inspired Clint to assume the Hawkeye persona. From misunderstood villain to hotheaded teammate to eventual chairman of the West Coast Avengers... he's come a long way.

I guess the trade's feature attraction is the HAWKEYE 4-issue limited series which published in 1983. Mark Gruenwald writes and even draws the thing, even if his stuff tends to look shaky and amateurish (thank goodness for his inkers). The narrative opens with Hawkeye still at his cushy gig as head of security for Cross Technological Enterprises, but not for long. Hawkeye always was too nosy for his own good. Gruenwald explores what makes Clint Barton tick, delves into his inferiority complex whenever in the company of his fellow Avengers. There's an insightful bunch of panels which has Clint, fearful of being shown up by Captain America, refusing Cap's offer of help. "I never realized how second rate Cap makes me feel," he reflects. "I've just got to solve this whole mess on my own. If I don't I may never be able to stand on my own two feet.

I love Hawkeye, and this book might be half of the reason why! What a great compilation of some of Hawkeye's earliest adventures! It's perfect to pick up if you're a fan of Hawkeye and you want some background; or if you're an Avengers fan and want to see some Hawkeye action when he's not with the Avengers.

Really painful dialogue. Hokie replacement swears all over the place, and Mockingbird's costume looks like she's going to a rollerdisco masquerade. Not the way to get into Hawkeye, and certainly not his best stories. Look for Matt Fraction's work with the character.

The Hawkeye miniseries was one of my favorites back in the day, and to have it in hardcover is a treat.

Marvel did a really good job with this collection, although I would have loved to have had more "bonuses" such as character designs, especially since we see things like Hawkeye's original Marvel Universe entry with a variant costume that he never actually appeared in save for an issue of ROM.

I know this is to tie in with the recent New Avengers: Reunion miniseries too, and am a little disappointed that some of the more memorable Hawkeye & Mockingbird stories are missing. Maybe or hopefully a sequel is in order?
