HAWKEYE: KATE BISHOP VOL. 1 TPB
Written by KELLY THOMPSON
Penciled by LEONARDO ROMERO
Cover by JULIAN TOTINO TEDESCO
Your favorite Hawkeye in her own book at last! Kate Bishop, the former Young Avenger (who you’ll remember from saving that other Hawkguy all the time and basically keeping his life in some semblance of order) is heading back out west to Los Angeles, with her bow and arrows and P.I. badge in tow. There are crimes to solve, and she’s the best archer for the job! Her first case seems easy — a little too easy. Could it be she’s uncovered a major conspiracy right off the bat? And when an unbearable hate wave spreads across L.A., it’s up to the Guardian Angel of the City of Angels to calm down the entire town. The odds may be stacked against her, but this is where she thrives — nobody puts Katie in a corner! Collecting HAWKEYE (2016) #1-6.
