With issue #2, this new Hawkeye series continues to be pretty great. The client (and victim of stalking) that Kate helped out in the first issue is now missing. And the stalker has lead Kate to some weird secret society called TCB. The issue ends with a very angry mob of masked creeps chasing Kate towards the end of the Venice Beach boardwalk. The story feels solid and the pacing is excellent.
Everything I applauded about the first issue remains the same. Thompson’s writing, Romero’s art, the mix of just the right amounts of comedy and millennial overtones and awesome action. This is really good stuff.
