Hawkeye: My Life as a Weapon by Matt Fraction with David Aja and Javier Pulido is a delightful look into the world of one of the underrated Avengers. 

I get tired of hearing people talk about the characters from the Avengers movie and leaving Hawkeye (Clint Barton) for the last in the line of their favorite heroes. Clint is freaking awesome. It's not his fault that his screen time was minimal and that he was a minion for half of the movie.

My Life as a Weapon is a look at what Clint does outside of the Avengers. It's a wild and crazy life for someone with no "super skill" and normal human healing and strength. What amazes me--as usual when it comes to graphic novels and comics--is the amount of depth that can be shown between pictures and words. I feel like I just read enough for two or three movies/books, but it's a 136 page book.

I thought I could read this at my work and not have to buy it, but after I read the first two comics, I had to take this gem home with me.

My Life as a Weapon is perfect for people who love superheroes or heroes who are damaged.
