In fact, it has surpassed the original show in the minds of many fans, as well as attracting readers who weren't even alive when the cartoon was on TV.

But all things must come to an end, and IDW has revealed that April's Jem and the Holograms #26 will be the final issue.

Strip Panel Naked: The Lime Green And Purple Of ‘Hawkeye’

You've got to hand it to Jordie Bellaire; she really understands color in comics. There's something effortless, restrained, and yet bombastic and intelligent about her work in basically everything I see her color. Yet again, in last week's new Hawkeye #1, working alongside writer Kelly Thompson and penciller Leonardo Romero, Bellaire concocts a perfect palette for the storytelling.

Kate Bishop’s Back In L.A. Action In ‘Hawkeye’ #1 From Kelly Thompson And Leonardo Romero [Preview]

hawkeye_featured

In these troubled times, we all need heroes we can believe in, and Hawkeye #1, written by Kelly Thompson and drawn by Leonardo Romero with colors by Jordie Bellaire, brings us one such hero in Kate Bishop, the second and greatest Hawkeye.

The book finds Kate back in L.A., where she first moved in Hawkeye Annual #1 by Matt Fraction and Javier Pulido, and once again working as a detective. She shared that book with her mentor, original Hawkeye Clint Barton, but she's going to have this Hawkeye title all to herself, while Clint is busy over in Occupy Avengers. As a longtime fan of both Kate Bishop and Kelly Thompson, I'm really looking forward to this book. And the panel in the preview where Kate leaps into action, in costume, while a handful of onlookers smile admiringly, is exactly the sort of thing I want to see in it.
