by

When an artist has been knocking it out of the park on a title it is sad to watch them leave, but what if an equally as talented artist were to fill that spot? Not it’s not as sad. Well put away your tissues because even though David Aja is taking a two issue break from Hawkeye, Black Bettle creator Francesco Francavilla will be taking over the art duties!

This April, a deadly super villain targets Clint Barton and all he holds dear—but luckily he’s got Eisner-Award winning artist Francesco Francavilla joining him for Hawkeye #10! New York Times best-selling writer Matt Fraction (Fantastic Four, FF) kicks off an all new story- providing the perfect jumping on point for new readers- as the Avenger known as Hawkeye finds himself facing his deadliest opponent yet. Who pulled the trigger? Where have you seen him before? The answers will send everyone’s favorite archer reeling.

“On Hawkeye we’ve been blessed with not only one of the biggest writers in comics with Matt Fraction, but also some of the best artists like David Aja, Javier Pulido and now Francesco Francavilla,” said Stephen Wacker, Senior Editor, Marvel Entertainment. “Though he’s only on the series for issues #10 & #12, Francesco is going to leave his mark on Clint with some of the most beautiful art you’ll see all year!”

New story. New Threats. New Artist. You cannot miss Fraction & Francavilla teaming up for the first time ever in Hawkeye #10, on-sale in April!

If Marvel had to pick a replacement for Aja they found the perfect one with Francavilla. Both artist have a comparable style so fans of the series won’t have to worry about a tonal shift in the art department.
