This slim five issue collection provides a frenetic and witty introduction to the solo adventures of The Avengers’ Hawkeye from author Matt Fraction. As a loosely connected series of capers, mishaps, and reluctant acts of heroism, this volume provides instant immersion into the often hilarious, sometimes harrowing life of Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye. Accompanying him are the incomparable Kate Bishop (the “other” Hawkeye) and Barton’s unflappable canine companion, Pizza Dog.

For one day, in a small town in rural Wisconsin, the dead came back to life. These “revivers” are the people they were in life, though some have come back changed. Inside the quarantined town’s borders, Officer Dana Cypress and others in the town deal with the aftermath of “Revival Day.” In addition to setting up the larger mysteries of how and why this happened, this first volume delves into a few other mysteries, including a main character’s murder. Billed as a “rural noir,” the art evokes the dark, claustrophobic, isolated town while the character driven plots slowly unfold.
