Hawkeye: Freefall #1

Written by Matthew Rosenberg

Art by Otto Schmidt

Published by Marvel Comics

I have been a fan of Hawkeye since I began reading comics. From his death in “Avengers Disassembled” through the critically-renowned Fraction and Aja era through today, Hawkeye comics have always been a must-buy and the marksman’s newest series Freefall is no exception. The inclusion of Otto Schmidt on art and a premise featuring a mysterious new Ronin promise that this series will be action-focused and fast-paced. Whether or not the question of who the new Ronin is grabs your attention, Schmidt’s depiction of Hawkeye trawling New York City streets and slinging arrows offers plenty of promise to sign up for this ride. — Chase Magnett

I Can Sell You a Body #1

Written by Ryan Ferrier

Art by George Kambadais

Published by IDW PublishingAnyone who has read D4VE (or its sequel) knows that Ryan Ferrier has a keen eye for oddball premises, and the ability to make them lively and enjoyable on the comics page. This new conceit is much more closely connected to humanity, as it’s all about the human spirit, but not in a necessarily uplifting manner. I Can Sell You a Body tells the story of a disgraced psychic who can place souls into living human bodies, specifically how this talent gets him into trouble with the mob. It’s supernatural high concept combined with gutter-level crime tropes in a miniseries that can pay off both halves of that unexpected equation. With a talented set of creators and a top-notch premise, I Can Sell You a Body may be one of the first breakout comics successes of 2020. — Chase Magnett
