Clint is still going bling but has had moderate success knocking off some of his former Thunderbolt colleagues who took part in the murders of the world’s heroes. Atlas and the Beetle have already fallen. With assistance from Kate Bishop the other Hawkeye he is about to be involved in a toughest battle yet…and the foe is VERY familiar…

Recap:
Clint catches up to Songbird who he was talking to during the last issue. As opposed to back then when she happily took part in the slaughter of earths heroes she is very remorseful over her conduct. She wants a chance to make things right but Hawkeye isn’t having it initially. He feels he still has his mission to complete. As they’re hashing out their differences we’re interrupted by Bullseye who appeared to have caught onto Hawkeye’s trail in the last issue.  They fight with Bullseye being enhanced gaining the upper hand. Songbird intervenes saving Clint. Kate intervenes again to save him allowing them to flee. Bullseye catches up and then they lose him. Bullseye is excited from the battle and eagerly anticipates round 2.

Opinion:
Man this issue was awesome all around just awesome. We’ve been teased about the initial meeting between Hawkeye and Bullseye in this series and the confrontation didn’t disappoint at all. I jus like Bullseye await round two as well. The moment where Hawkeye and Songbird was very moving as you see she is REALLY serious about repenting for her past crimes. The action was good as it flowed throughout the whole issue. Based on where they left off with the last one we figured things would pick up so to speak in this one. Great issue. The art is engaging as well but this one to me has been consistent through the whole book. I’m actually starting to enjoy this one even MORE than Old Man Logan what many suggest is one of if not Wolverine’s best stories.

Summary
This one was great for the reasons I mentioned above. The moment of compasson between Hawkeye and Songbird, not to mention the beginning of the conflict between he and Bullseye. We’ve waited for awhile and we’re finally there. Since both survived it’s a race against time with Hakweye trying to complete his mission before going blind while Bullseye just wants to murder him. Clint is on the clock. I wonder though if he might start having second thoughts if other members of the old Thunderbolt team start wanting second chances as well. Time will tell.
Good
  • Hawkeye/Songbird moment was moving
