If you loved the Avengers movie and want to start reading comics, this award-winning volume is a perfect choice. Each issue follows Hawkeye's day-to-day life while he's not on missions with the Avengers, but the book tells its own story -- you won't need to read any other comics for this one to make sense. Hawkeye is funny, the art is cool, and one issue is narrated by his dog! Launched in 2013, Hawkeye is now in its fourth volume, so if you like this one there's plenty more. Find it in the YA department!
