By Wade A TOP 500 REVIEWER on Dec 29 2014
Format: Paperback
This book is definitely the same and yet different from the previous two installments. It's the same because it's got the same snappy writing from Matt Fraction taking over Kate Bishop's adventures. It's different because of the art done by Wu and Pulido, which is similar to Aja's stuff but seems a little less well done in my opinion. This book is in no way bad, but it doesn't have that home run hit the Clint storylines seem to have. Kate does make it fun and quirky in here LA adventures though as she gets her first job and tries to make it on her own, while avoiding a super villain that wants her dead.

Overall a great Kate Bishop character building book, but not necessary if you're only interested in Clint's story through this series. However if you want a quirky, in over her head super hero, Kate's right for you.

Not as strong as the first two volumes, but Kate's side of being Hawkeye is still a fun read. I'm looking forward to reading Clint's side of the story!

Who the hell green-lit this garbage? After immensely enjoying volumes one and two of this series, I was highly anticipating the solo adventures of Kate Bishop. Matt Fractions Hawkeye rounded up my three top Marvel books at the moment; along with Daredevil and Superior Foes of Spider-man. Volume two of SFSM was a disappointment due to Nick Spencers' absence, but Hawkeye has no such excuse.
Madame Masque has such a penchant for orchids, she would sooner burn down a florist shop than let a stem be purchased for a gay wedding ceremony.
Kate Bishop heals days after being brutally attacked by bellboy henchmen, but is never in any mortal danger, because Madame Masque would rather just toy with her. After stating multiple times she wants to see Kate dead for past humiliations, she never acts out her intention when the opportunities present themselves.
The writing is neither witty, nor creative. What should have been a fun tonal shift for a supporting character is wasted on pointless misadventures that failed to resonate with me.
Final scene is another conspiracy whitewash, where nothing is resolved but an omnipresent agency will handle the situation in the future. Is SHIELD the new DEUS EX MACHINA?

HASH(0x9f01ea80) out of 5 stars As entertaining and absorbing as ever plus more youthful and upbeat March 10 2015
By Agne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Matt Fraction’s “Hawkeye, Vol. 3: L.A. Woman” is a collection of issues #14, 16, 18 and 20 of Hawkeye comic book series plus the first issue of Annual. Hawkeye’s talented but spoiled teenage protégé Kate Bishop got tired of Clint Barton’s, that is Hawkeye’s, drama so she left for Los Angeles and took with her Lucky the Pizza Dog. But on the West Coast things are not perfect either. Kate gets dead broke and tries to make ends meet working as a private investigator. On top of that, she is being pursued by Madame Masque who wants to revenge some old grievances…

THUMBS UP:

1) As entertaining and absorbing as ever.
Although an entire volume focuses on Kate’s adventures, I loved it as much as “Hawkeye, Vol. 1: My Life as a Weapon” and even more than “Hawkeye, Vol. 2: Little Hits.” Just like the previous volumes, “Hawkeye, Vol. 3” is surprisingly realistic, action-packed, well-thought-out, entertaining and absorbing.

2) Youthful and upbeat.
Even though I liked “Hawkeye, Vol. 2” a lot, I found it rather depressing and hoped for the brighter tomorrow in the third volume. My prayers have been answered. Hallelujah! “Hawkeye, Vol. 3” is like a breath of fresh air. Although Kate, just like Clint, gets banged up, often finds herself in trouble and makes terrible decisions, she, UNLIKE Clint, is bursting with youthful energy and optimism.

3) Kate is AWESOME.
Since the previous two volumes focused on the other Hawkeye, Clint Barton, I never really understood Kate’s character, but now I do and I absolutely love her. Kate is overconfident, ambitious, often naive and childishly silly, but she is also smart, funny, good-natured, optimistic and really good-looking. She is indeed a female version of Clint Barton, just much younger and more cheerful.

4) Wu’s artwork is SO Kate.
Wu’s illustrations are at least as good as Aja’s, and her portrayal of Kate is simply perfect: Wu brings out Kate’s character better than any of the previous artists managed to do.

COULD BE BETTER:

1) Pulido’s illustrations.
Although I’ve read plenty of praise for Javier Pulido’s illustrations in the Annual issue #1, I personally didn’t like it at all. The storyline is great, but the artwork is just so childish, simplistic and cartoon-like, and half of the characters are drawn as silhouettes. Ew!

VERDICT: 4.5 out of 5

Matt Fraction did it again: “Hawkeye, Vol. 3: L.A. Woman” is as realistic, action-packed, well-thought-out, entertaining and absorbing as the previous two volumes. Plus, this time it is all about Kate Bishop, so the vibe is youthful and optimistic. I finally really get Kate and she is actually quite awesome! And although this volume is not illustrated by Aja, Wu’s artwork is a masterpiece on its own.

HASH(0x9f01ead4) out of 5 stars I love Kate Bishop April 19 2015
By Bradley P. Valentine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is where Fraction’s Hawkeye utterly lost steam for me. Where my increasingly creeping suspicions that Fraction didn’t really have much to a long run series seemed to be confirmed. After LOVING the initial Hawkeye books, I began feeling frustrated. The idea is this is what Clint does between Avengers missions. BUT so much of the series surrounds the death of his neighbor and VERY SLOWLY goes anywhere.

Then there came issues where a dog watched a cartoon. Then an issue where WE saw the cartoon. Then Kate takes the dog and goes to L.A. where that takes place over one incident that VERY SLOWLY goes anywhere.

Don’t misunderstand, I love Kate Bishop. In fact I liked her story more than Clint’s in the final sum of the series (I get the single issues but *no spoilers*...there really aren’t any to give anyway). I am a BIG fan of Fraction’s work, too. Sex Criminals and his Punisher. I adored the premise to Hawkeye.

But it eventually leaves you with the quality of making you realize your face hurts because you’re smiling in anticipation of a pay off and you keep smiling and keep anticipating and then it dawns of you this next issue is just another Long Goodbye wink job (hey, Fraction, you can use “wink job” for Sex Criminals! See, I am a fan).

Finally this book just never felt as if it was a big priority for Fraction of Marvel despite all of us fans.

So it’s disappointing. Maybe with time and a different set of expectations it will age better. I’m not surprised Marvel ended the book. Maybe Lemire will give Clint and Kate more deserved attention.

HASH(0x9f01ef0c) out of 5 stars A wonderful female hero worth getting to know. Feb. 25 2015
By shawn palmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've been reading this series since the beginning, but I honestly think this volume stole the show. In fact, this may be one of the most entertaining graphic novels I've read all year. I've never been a big fan of either Hawkeye character. So, I decided to read this series because of the amazing reviews and strong creative talent. I have not been disappointed. This volume follows the female Hawkeye Kate Bishop. She's funny, spunky, and realistic. I absolutely loved her entertaining adventures and the menace of Madam Masque. Most importantly, this writer did a tremendous job bringing to life a female hero in a male saturated genre. Bravo. Buy this book.

HASH(0x9f0212e8) out of 5 stars Kate Bishop is an incredible leading lady Feb. 22 2015
By Alexis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you're looking for Clint Barton, you won't find him beyond the first few pages of this book, but that's okay with me because Kate Bishop makes a fabulous lead.

She's almost everything I've ever wanted in a female lead. A lot of the time, when you have a strong, tough female lead, she isn't allowed to be feminine - she often falls into a tomboy trope. Kate Bishop does not give up her femininity to be tough, and Fraction also writes her extremely well. She's a great, well-rounded character, and she's written much better here than she was in any of the Young Avengers titles.

HASH(0x9f0213cc) out of 5 stars Not as fun as the last two volumes. May 24 2015
By Nicholas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I had a tough time enjoying this one as much as the previous two volumes of hawkeye. I don't feel as though the story flowed as well, nor (what a weird word) was the story as... well, fun as the previous two volumes. Add in the fact that the art saw a huge decline in the issues contained in here (with one expectation) and this one is just kind of "meh."
