Hawkeye, Vol. 2: Little Hits - Matt Fraction, David Aja, Francesco Francavilla, Steve Lieber, Jesse Hamm, Matt Hollingsworth This is just insanely good. If any superhero comic is a total package, it's this one. Great writing involving superheroes that act like heroes, talk like people, and have realistic but not overwhelming flaws? Check. Brilliant art that gives the characters expression and individuality? Check. Eye-catching colors that are subtle yet unique? Check. Covers that make this title pop on the shelf? Check, a thousand times check. Add in one of the most creative individual issues I've read in recent years, and this is close to perfection. It's worth reading for the Pizza Dog issue alone, but it would be a crying shame to read only one issue of Hawkeye. In all seriousness, I did not care a bit about Hawkeye as a character before I picked up the first trade, and now he might be one of my favorite mainstream(ish) heroes. Fantastic work, all around.
