With a new Hawkeye series looming with a March 4th, 2015 premiere date, Marvel Comics is now bringing out a look at the artwork and covers a bit while also getting a few words in from new series writer Jeff Lemire. Lemire will be bringing out this book with Eisner-award winning artist Ramon Perez to set its own pace and direction so as to not try and replicate the previous series.
“To me, Kate is an equal to Clint in terms of who the ‘star’ of the book is,” says writer Jeff Lemire in an interview with Marvel.com. “It’s equal billing. It will be as much Kate’s story as it is Clint’s. The threat they’ll be facing is very much something new. And it’s not strictly a big bombastic super-villain-y kind of thing. It’s something that hits them both on a much more personal level.”
Plot concept: With Kate Bishop, his trusted ward and protégé back at his side (note: not titles she would use), Team Hawkeye is thrown in to an all new adventure spanning two generations of avenging archers. Past and present lives collide as Kate and Clint face a threat that will challenge everything they know about how to be a hero, and what it means to be Hawkeye.
