How Hawkeye #19 Portrays The World Of A Deaf Superhero To A Hearing Audience (Bleeding Cool)

"that’s the greatest achievement of this comic, it creates the world of guesswork, or detecting, of putting pieces together and coming up with the result, often correct but with a few missing pieces and a few things wrong, with the worry that you have missed something along the way. And that is often the experience of the deaf person dealing with a hearing world. No matter how experienced or talented, there’s always something…"

Another reason why Hawkeye is the best book on the stands every week it comes out.

It’s also the most gimmicky. This is the 3rd, maybe 4th, experimental issue in a story that was already being told out of order as an experiment. 
Doing a wordless issue has been done before. Marvel made a major gimmick out of it years ago with it’s Nuff Said series of books. 
As a fan of this book and of the characters it depicted, I feel let down that it hasn’t come out on time nor has it really moved the story forward. Kudos to Marvel for letting the creative team experiment, but it’s time to reign it in and tell the story.
That said, this issue was better than that animated dog one a few months back.

We went to an advanced screening of Guardians of the Galaxy last night. The bad: some scenes felt too long and there were a few tired jokes. The good: everything else - the cast was great, the effects were fantastic, a fun soundtrack, and some truly laugh out loud moments. I don’t know that I’ll watch it as many times as I’ve watched The Avengers, but I do recommend it.

I’ll also add that on occasion, the 3D was distracting. BUT! If you loved this:

or this:

There are precious few things about this movie you won’t like.
