Hawkeye: Blindspot is a four issue comic book limited series published by Marvel Comics, starring Hawkeye. Hawkeye: Blindspot continues the storyline staged in Hawkeye & Mockingbird and Widowmaker. The series was written by Jim McCann.[1]

Publication history

Marvel first announced Hawkeye: Blindspot in November 2010 as the follow-up to four-issue miniseries Widowmaker. The Widowmaker storyline was originally scheduled to run through Hawkeye & Mockingbird issues #7 and #8, and Black Widow #9 and #10. Instead it was solicited as a stand-alone miniseries, which left the status of both titles unknown.[1][2]

Characters

Premise

In the wake of the shocking Widowmaker, Clint Barton is living out a fate worse than death. With his greatest skill now a terrible curse, Hawkeye will have to face down his past sins to forge a new future…but even the man with Marvel’s deadliest aim can’t always see what’s coming![1]

Reception

The first issue of Hawkeye: Blindspot was received with mostly positive critical reviews. Doug Zawisza of Comic Book Resources gave it 4.5 out 5 starts stating, "Whether you like what McCann has been doing with Hawkeye and Mockingbird and Widowmaker, or are just a fan of the Clint Barton character, this issue offers quite a bang for your three bucks".[3] Jesse Schedeen of IGN was less enthused giving it a 6.5 out of 10 explaining, "Hawkeye: Blindspot doesn't get off to a wholly satisfying start. Luckily, now that the flashbacks are out of the way, there's ample room for McCann to focus the story and ramp up the conflict".[4] Lan Pitts of Newsarama stated, "Hawkeye: Blindspot hearkens back to a simpler age of storytelling, but is hardly "simple". If you're itching for something that the current Avengers books might not be scratching, look no further than this".[5]
