Clint Barton doesn't fight any super-villains this time around but faces the forces of Mother Nature and human grief. This amazing story by writer Matt Fraction brings the real world perspective of tragedy straight into the lives of our two heroes.
The guest artists joining Fraction do a nice job handling the art chores on such a short notice. Steve Lieber is on point with the story on Barton, hoping to see his work on Hawkguy. Jesse Hamm's "frantic" style works well for Kate's tale with one panel at the end standing out as quite good. Fraction's writing runs the gamut of emotions with this personal story and there's no doubt you'll enjoy real-life events spilling over into comic-books. We should thank for Fraction for his generosity in donating any bonuses received towards the Red Cross.
Final Verdict: A
