If you message me, do not put “sorry for wasting your time” or “sorry for bothering you” at the end of your message!!! I’ve seen this way too many times. You are not a waste of my time. You are not a waste of anyone’s time. You are not a waste of time period. Please never say or think that ever again
I think I need to see this right now…

You’re welcome! Sorry it was so long winded, but I have a lot to say when it comes to Hawkeye :D
Anonymous asked: Hey I was wondering if you could help me start with reading comics featuring Hawkeye as the main character. Thanks in advance!
There is a lot material out there and even I haven’t read it all so I think the best I can do for you is tell you about what I know.
Hawkeye became my fave a long time ago when I discovered the very (VERY) early Avengers comics. Hawkeye joined the avengers way back in issue #16 ( I have no idea if it is available digitally) and that’s where we met, he and I.
My favorite books that I have read featuring Hawkeye are : Hawkeye Blindspot, Widowmaker, All the self titled volumes of which there are currently four,Volumes Two and Four are particular favorites. Hawkeye Solo which later morphed into Spotlight was also a lot of fun. The thing to remember about trying to read Hawkeye? HE IS EVERYWHERE. He has made substantial appearances in so many comics I am not sure I could list them all. The majors that I know about are: Avengers, Captain America, New Avengers, West Coast Avengers, Secret Avengers. And he had a longish run in Thunderbolts. He is also heavily featured in AvX which I have yet to read,
All told he has made appearances in more than 200 separate books, Not ISSUES but actual comic titles
And then there is the OTHER Hawkeye Kate Bishop. She’s a little easier to pin down. Sorta. Her majors that I know are The Children’s Crusade and both runs of the Young Avengers, the current run of Hawkeye, and all seven issues of the Civil War (which I have not, and probably never will, read) but she also has a habit of showing up in a lot of places too ;)
Where to start? That is a really tough question. Here are my suggestions but I am by no means an expert this is just my big fat opinion
Hawkeye Blindspot to get a good part of his back story. Read the four Hawkeye Volumes. And then carry on with which ever of the Avengers teams he has been on that appeals to you.
"I mean, I can’t miss. … I’m on a team with super-humans. And one god, in case you’ve forgotten. Even you…well, you climb walls really well. … I gave up a lot for this life. I could have been happy with Mockingbir— Bobbi. We could have had a good, simple life. But I wanted to play with the big boys. And if I miss, it means I’m just another dude with a bow. It means I’ve been fooling myself this whole time. And that’s why I never miss."
thewinterbat asked: Hi I was wondering if you could help me. I recently start reading the Young Avengers. In it there is Hawkeye, but she's a girl. I was wondering, if you could tell me what happen to Clint Barton. Did he pass along his name? Thanks in advance!!!
Kate Bishop took over the mantle of Hawkeye during a (thankfully brief) period when Clint Barton was dead. He was later resurrected and returned to become Ronin for a time, while Kate Bishop remained as Hawkeye. Clint later returned to the Avengers as Hawkeye. He and Kate Bishop decided that the world needed TWO Hawkeye’s. So they are BOTH Hawkeye, and they re close friends.
Hawkeye # 15
Hawkeye # 15
That pretty much sums it up!
