Marvel has announced the third new Ultimate Comics title following the Death of Spider-Man event will feature Hawkeye as the central character. This will not be an ongoing series, but rather a four issue mini that kicks off this summer.
“If you give any character a chance at the spotlight and write them well, they all have a chance to be a hit,” said series writer Jonathan Hickman. “As we’re using the story to move the narrative forward, we’ll bring in some other characters to cement how important he’s supposed to be moving forward.”
The mini-series will feature art by Rafa Sandoval, and according to everything we’ve heard these last couple of days, the Marvel U will evolve that will allow creators to tell stories they wouldn’t otherwise be able to do in the regular Marvel books.
