The Rundown: Clint’s double life gets more complicated as his new plan against the Hood attracts more heroes working to stop him.
Clint’s war against the Hood continues to escalate and the fight will bring in more heroes who are convinced that Ronin’s presence is a bigger threat to the city than Hood. Daredevil decides to get a group of heroes together to stop Ronin and recruits Clint to basically hunt himself.
Hawkeye will have to find a new way to convince the other heroes, including his ex wife, that Ronin and he are not the same person and that plan will put everyone, including a desperate Skrull in the crosshairs of a master assassin.
The Story: Consistently entertaining. Rosenberg continues this madcap and wacky adventure for the former Avenger with equal parts charm and wit as he continues to put Clint Barton through the ringer in his attempts to keep people at arms length while he works out a plan that is getting more convoluted and complicated by the day. The dialogue and plot are impressive and interesting as the story unfolds in ways that are surprising.
The Art: Otto Schmidt does amazing work with the art in this issue. Every panel is filled with awesome details and the characters look awesome. The lighter style of the artwork is perfect for this story and tone of story and I continue to look forward to this series.
