Series: Hawkeye (Marvel NOW!) (#3)
Kate Bishop, the female Hawkeye, goes to LA to get away from New York and Clint Barton and tries to get away from it all but finds herself sucked into a lot of issues.
Kate Bishop is the Young Avenger with the bow and arrow. This is what she does when she's not Avenging.Annual 1 - Kate and Lucky leave town for the West Coast. Madam Masque looks to settle a score.Well, I didn't like this issue very much. Javier Pullido just isn't David Aja. Also, I'm not sold ...
You know, maybe Matt Fraction just isn't for me. Once again, I feel like there's a lot of great potential not quite realized here. Once again, I find the art telling a more compelling story than the text. I'm interested in reading more with Kate Bishop in it, but not in this run, I think.

Kate Bishop. That's all you need to know. She gets her own issues for a while, collected here, kick more ass but now on the West Coast. With cats.
