Welcome back to our new series in which we review the comics that we read every week. This week Seppin is going to be reviewing Old Man Hawkeye #8 by Ethan Sacks and art by Marco Checchetto.
This story is great! It is a perfect prequel to the Old Man Logan graphic novel and I love it. Hawkeye was one of the best parts of Old Man Logan and I am so glad that we are getting more knowledge about that world and Hawkeye’s story.
Ethan Sacks gives us exactly what we want and more. Old Man Hawkeye and an emotional story that is almost as violent as Old Man Logan and equally philosophical. There are a lot of questions of morality and society that help the story. Old Man Logan had these too, but this story allows us to get a different look at the world. Logan was an outsider that was just trying to have a life after the big massacre. Now we get to see the world view from Hawkeye, who has been around Red Skull’s world and has experienced every dirty moment from it.
This issue continues Clint’s story with Kate Bishop on his journey to kill all of the Thunderbolt’s that had betrayed the Avengers. It is a really sad issue, but I won’t spoil why. When it comes to Old Man Bullseye, he is awesome. We get a really cool fight between him and the Winter Soldier who has been reprogrammed by Red Skull. It’s amazing and just solidifies Bullseye’s awesomeness before we finally get the greatest battle between him and Hawkeye.
Overall, this story is incredible and one of the best stories Marvel has out right now.
