The most recent issue of Hawkeye gave me the urge to re-read the entire series again. While I never lost track of how great a series it is. I did forget how many poignant moments such as this one stand out.
Not only is Hawkeye revolutionary in its approach to a superhero comic, but the characters involved are so human in an extremely nuanced way. Clint Barton is a superhero by trade, and he is faced with a decision. He thinks running away is best for him and everyone else involved. Kate on the other hand knows better than that.
This is such a pivotal moment, and one I’m sure many of us can relate to. When a person in your life can see more in you than you can and as a result are disappointed in the decision you are resigned to make.
Couldn’t agree more.
Also. One of the best side effects of the long wait for a new issue was the impetus to re-read the entire series.
Posting this dang thing because I’ve been working on it all evening so by golly someone besides me should have to stare at it for a change
Also I will admit I am pretty happy with it - I really like doing these character portraits with backgrounds full of narrative details
Now I just have to actually ink and color it :|
Yay Clint though~
