Springing from the pages of SECRET EMPIRE…
The Black Widow is dead, but someone is killing her enemies. With a broken heart and a bloody trail to follow, Hawkeye is looking for answers. And the only person alive who may have them is Natasha Romanoff’s “other” ex-boyfriend, The Winter Soldier. Can they trust each other long enough to unravel the web of mysteries that Black Widow left behind?
Overall Series Review:
Matthew Rosenberg takes two heroes with wildly different attitudes and places them together into this thrilling cocktail with the underlining connection being Black Widow. Not only does Rosenberg create a story with all the fixings, but he also manages to create a classic spy meets action meets comedy tale that’s cluttered with winning one-liners and chalked full of adrenaline and suspense.
Ladies and Gentlemen of the comic world, this series literally has it all! Rosenberg sprinkles in his own unique charm and makes readers fall in love with the budding duo of Clint and Bucky. His take on Hawkeye is witty and smashingly fun while simultaneously finding a way to make him relatable and reliable. If you’re interested in something more recent, check out Rosenberg’s HAWKEYE FREE FALL that’s out right now by clicking HERE. All smarmy kidding aside, this series was remarkably insightful into the three main characters and filled with so much edge of your seat tension. Plus, Rosenberg uses his canvas to quickly catch up readers as to what happened during SECRET EMPIRE and where Marvel was heading after the event. Throughout the series, Rosenberg shines bright with his knack for detail, his eye for suspense, the gradual reveal of the story, and the amplifying chemistry between Bucky and Clint that will have you hoping for another buddy suspense-comedy in the future. And did I mention bears…
