Marvel has quietly announced that the previously solicited story for issue #7 of Matt Fraction and David Aja’s “Hawkeye” will now be pushed back to issue #8 with a replacement team filling in. Keep in mind, Marvel is only pushing back the storyline within the pages, not the actual publication date of the material. The issue is now being billed to feature the art of Steve Leiber and writing of newcomer Jesse Hamm.
“We’re pushing the next story back by a month to make room for a two timely stories about Hawkeye and Kate Bishop dealing with the ramifications of a hurricane that hammers the east coast. With lovely art by the Eisner Award Winning artist Steve Leiber and newcomer Jesse Hamm, it’s a perfect pause before the next Fraction/Aja mini-opus begins….featuring the reveal of a villain that I can promise you no one sees coming.”
