Old Man Hawkeye Prequel Announced
Don’t look now but Marvel is milking more from Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s Old Man Logan by making a prequel story, Old Man Hawkeye.
Old Man Hawkeye will be a 12 issue series set 45 years after a major supervillain uprising that killed majority of the heroes and plunged the world into chaos.
And while all is well I have to remind you, dear readers, that Hawkeye died at the hands of the Red Skull towards the end of Old Man Logan.
The story will be written by Ethan Sacks with art by Marco Checchetto and will begin to ship in January.
Axell Alonso has this to share about this new project:
Readers will gain insight into previously established characters, explore new corners of the Wasteland, meet new characters, and discover exciting Easter eggs all throughout Clint’s journey
Writer Sacks also adds:
In this story, he’s losing his vision and that sort of forces him to confront something really horrible that happened to him personally 45 years ago, and go on his own hero’s journey while he still can
Honestly, while I will pick this title up, its like getting a gift that you never asked and never even considered. Still, I don’t want to diss the project without even seeing it.
