The Mary Sue Exclusive Preview: Marvel’s Hawkeye #17

Marvel Comics has given The Mary Sue a special treat! An exclusive preview of David Aja and Chris Eliopoulos’ Hawkeye #17. There might be a few things you’re not expecting…



Hulk Smash Black Friday?

I probably spend too much time on Tumblr, because I immediately recognized that Sairobee’s Black Friday comic depicts Iron Man, the Hulk, and Hawkeye without any more context than the first two panels. If you’d like to know what happens when Bruce Banner has a little too much Holiday shopping, you should check her Tumblr. I like to think that during this Black Widow is on the Helicarrier, gamely still trying to explain traditional Thanksgiving movies like Home AloneMystery Science Theater, A Christmas Story, and The Iron Giant to Thor and Captain America.


Bear Time

If Merida Was A Cosplayer, She Might Cosplay Hawkeye, And It Might Look Like This

A while back, DeviantArtist Brianna Garcia created a fantastic image mashing together two famous archers – Merida and Hawkeye. Now, cosplayer Lisa Marie has brought it to life. Filed under: “Dammit, why didn’t I think of this?” (though I have done William Merida Wallace) You know, considering Disney owns Marvel now, any chance we could get an alternate universe one-shot where Merida is that universe’s Hawkeye?

Fans Do Cool Things

Now You Can Have Your Favorite Geek Icons Sculpted Out of Paper

Graphic designer Alia Syed makes these elaborate sculptures by gluing down dozens of thin strips of paper in swirls and patterns (a technique called quilling). See more, or even get a custom design, at her Etsy shop.


Fashion for Nonhumans

Ladies, You Can Now Wear a Dog’s Impression of Hawkeye as a Shirt (Also Hawkguy)

There are two Hawkeyes in the Marvel universe, and yes, they’re both called Hawkeye. There’s Kate Bishop, who smells like tea and flowers and pizza and maybe some socialite schmoozing, and there’s Clint Barton, who smells like coffee and dog food and costumes. I mean, it’s pretty clear who I’d want to go on a cross country road trip of emotional discovery with. Fortunately, I can now announce this with WeLoveFine’s Hawkeye shirts, now being offered in ladies sizes both scoopneck and regular. Part of the proceeds from each shirt goes to Futures Without Violence.

Oh fine, here’s the one for Clint:


My Spidey Sense Is Tingling

NSFW: Black Widow & Hawkeye Aren’t Left Out Of This Fake Avengers Sex Toy Line

Did we say Not Safe For Work? NSFW! Tumblr user Sarmai created “6 pieces of pleasure” based on the characters from Marvel’s The Avengers. When we saw them we made this face and figured you might enjoy them if we shared. And by “enjoy” we don’t mean actually enjoy, because these aren’t real. But if they were, I have a feeling they’d fly off the shelves faster than then you can say, Excelsior!


Things to Do With Your Kids

Marvel Heroes and Villains Walk Their Kids to School

Andry Rajoelina is the artist who brought us the “parents” of the DC universe walking their sidekicks to school, and if you didn’t think there could be anything sadder than Hal Jordan conjuring himself a child to walk with, well I have bad news for you, because Spider-Man.


Not all that glitters is gold

If You Are a Geek Who Likes Jewelry, HoraEffect on Etsy Has Something For You

I’m not going to say that if you don’t recognize these lips we can’t be friends. Just that you might have to invest in a bucket of popcorn and an evening on my shitty couch watching The Rocky Horror Picture Show with me and maybe my roommate.

HoraEffect on Etsy has covered a truly wide range of pop culture jewelry, from Hawkeye and other superheroes to Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica and even Soul Eater and a lot of stuff in between. Haven’t found anything relevant to your interests here? You should probably check out the whole store. Trust me.


Offered Without Comment

Guys, Someone Cosplayed as the Hawkeye Initiative at Emerald City Comicon

If you need a reminder, the Hawkeye Initiative is what happened when artists got sick of the ridiculously sexual poses female comic characters are often drawn in and decided to draw Hawkeye in those poses instead.

As for the cosplay… what is there to say, really? Just gonna leave it here. Edit: We’ve found his tumblr!
