Media Consumption Log: Hawkeye and Mockingbird (Heroic Age)

As I purge my collection of stuff I'll never want to read again, let me start here. I have mostly ceased collecting Marvel comics after Civil War (the special event of several years back), but occasionally take a chance on mini-series. This series fails because: 1. It depends on nostalgia recollection of comics from the 1980s and 1990s to generate motivation or conflict. 2. It reintroduces a family member entirely for the purpose of dramatically threatening their life. 3. All told, then, characterization is minimal, and plot is simplistic.
