Writer Kelly Thompson has shown over the past few years that she knows how to spin fun, dynamic yarns brimming with clearly-outlined characterization in such comic book series as Jem and the Holograms and A-Force. That’s why it’s more than phenomenal news that she’ll be teaming up with artist Leonardo Romero (Doctor Strange) this December for Hawkeye #1, starring Kate Bishop in her first solo book as the adventurer with a penchant for archery. Kate is one of Marvel’s best additions to their menagerie of characters in the past decade, bringing a intelligence and sass to the Avengers’ world. Thompson’s words combined with Romero’s pencils will bring a street-level, whip-sharp sensibility necessary to make Kate’s tales work.

Hawkeye #1, written by Kelly Thompson with Leonardo Romero on art, is on sale December 14 from Marvel.
