Kate Bishop is Finally Getting Her Own Solo Series!
Can the Hawkeye lightning strike twice? Matt Fraction and David Aja’s Hawkeye starring Clint Barton is the comic book of the decade, in this henchman’s personal opinion. There have been some minor follow up comics since, but now might finally be the time we get something cool. Writer Kelly Thompson is going to write a Kate Bishop solo Hawkeye series!
That’s pretty neat. I like Thompson’s work, and the art team of Leonardo Romero and Jordie Bellaire has great potential too. I’m really excited for this series.
Thompson had this to say in an interview with io9:
“I think Kate’s got such a strong and singular voice, even when she’s in a group, that once you tap into that voice as a writer, she just sorta bosses you around and tells you what she wants to do. Our series is definitely a spiritual successor to what Matt Fraction and Annie Wu began when they brought Kate to L.A. We’re definitely doing our own thing, but they absolutely laid the groundwork for where we wanted to take Kate. It was the next logical step.”
She compared the comic to the TV show Veronica Mars, which was a great show. And Kate Bishop is a really fun character. I really hope this new series has some legs. I’ll definitely be checking it out in December.
