Volume 1 – Anchor Points
Remember Hawkeye? No, not that Hawkeye – your favorite Hawkeye, the former Young Avenger, the butt-kicking hero who had to save that other Hawkguy all the time and basically keep his life in some semblance of order. Yup, you know her, it’s the dazzling Kate Bishop – making her solo comics debut! Kate is heading back out west and returning to Los Angeles, with her bow and arrow and P.I. badge in tow. There are crimes to solve and she’s the best archer to handle ’em! The City of Angels has a new guardian angel. This is Kate Bishop like you’ve never seen her before, in a brand-new saga that really hits the mark!

Volume 2 – Masks
Hawkeye finally gets a lead on the top-secret case that brought her to Los Angeles in the first place – but to solve this mystery, Kate Bishop will have to take a good hard look at who she is and where she came from. Is she really ready to face the ghosts of her past? Maybe fixing things for a young client with oddly similar problems will help her fix herself! Probably not, though. At least she’ll get to punch through her frustrations courtesy of the Worst. Fight. Club. Ever. But when her friends get in trouble and need a helping hand from Hawkeye, she always comes through – right? So when she doesn’t, something must be really off. Who is this fake Kate, and what has she done with the real deal?

Volume 3 – Family Reunion
Can Los Angeles really handle two Hawkeyes? Just as Kate Bishop reaches out to ask for Clint Barton’s help with finding her dead mother, the senior bowman shows up needing help of his own. An unknown party is gunning for him – and their attack kicks off a wild chase across the City of Angels! Now, Hawkeye and Hawkeye must try their hardest to stay one step ahead, fully alive, and with minimal property damage…well, okay, with moderate property damage. But who has Clint and Kate in their sights, and what is their sinister agenda? The Hawkeyes are reunited and it feels so good!
