Hawkeye – yeah, remember that one? – returns at the end of this month, with an issue from the team of Matt Fraction, David Aja, Matt Hollingsworth and… Joe Caramagna? Well on that last front, yes, but in a very different role to any he’s had before. This is an issue which’ll see Clint Barton once more succumb to hearing loss, y’see a constant condition which has affected him across the years.
As a result, the word balloons are all being blanked out, and the team are looking to focus on visual clues and sign language to convey the story across for readers. As an example of how all that’ll work, a page has been released today, along with Fraction’s script for it – you can see how all four members of the creative team are all having to react in different ways to the shift.
