Behold... the beginnings of The Beard!
The plot centers around the return of the mysterious redhead who sold Clint a car before having a quick fling back in the hilarious Issue #3. She's in trouble again and is ready to drag a not-totally-unwilling Hawkeye along with her. Naturally complications abound and hilarity ensues as they only can when Matt Fraction is at the storyteller's wheel.
David Aja's artwork is as welcome as ever. All of the artists on this book have been good ones, but Aja's subdued style has quickly become the definitive look of Hawkeye. The color-scheme utilized by Matt Hollingsworth also adds to the overall excellent effect that makes this one of the most distinctive and unique-looking comics in existence.
If you aren't reading Hawkeye by now, I don't know what else I can say to get you to start. Great writing. Amazing artwork. What more could you ask for?
