well, hawkeye & mockingbird got cancelled and i'm really not that surprised. i guess i am surprised that it didn't even have as many issues as hawkeye's last series!
i've said this before, but i still think writer's of hawkeye series have not learned from mistakes of the past. this series had a great writer and artist, but the series REALLY failed to start with a BANG! the first story arc featured lame villians and drug on far too long. it was a good story, but it is going to bring new fans? highly unlikely. i think even a lot of hawkeye fans didn't like it that much. and i think a hawkeye series needs more than just hawkeye fans to support it. i like hawkeye & mockingbird, but as soon as i saw crossfire & phantom rider, i knew it was over for this series.
sigh...now we have widowmaker...and i'm still not really impressed overall. art in the 2nd ish was mediocre at best. the supreme soviets? who cares? a new ronin? hasn't that been done a bit much? i won't be buying anymore of this series. bottom line...mockingbird may fit in spy stories, but hawkeye really doesn't.
only positive note...hawkeye's limited is annouced. i think marvel should just do limited series for all non-movie characters, because it is obvious they will not support a critically acclaimed, but low sale series. its just dumb to hype up a book and cancel it in less than a year! i'm a die-hard hawkeye fan, and i'm not even sure i'm interested in hawkeye comics anymore (the last comic i was interested in).
thanks to everyone for the friendly discussions and debates. i'm out!
