I think the series's gonna be a lot of fun. I'm working on the cover for issue 3 right now, and I'm very excited to read the story.
The whole creative team is very fond of the characters, and I think they'll bring the right combination of fun and action to a title like this.

Nice cover! Love the movement protrayed in them.

To be fair, I've uh, never heard of Mockingbird ^^; But I love her costume!

Well, she's been dead for a while (only in comics you can write this with a serious face).
Hope this series will bring some exposure to the girl. I've always like her in the 80's.

C'est vrai que j'aurais aimé quelque chose de plus narratif, avec un zest d'humour. Mais je comprends aussi la position de Marvel qui veut "iconiser" ces persos, surtout sur la couverture du numéro 1.
Mais je suis ravis qu'elle plaise, parce que je me donne toujours du mal pour ça :)

en meme temps, c'est vrai que pour la première couverture, on peut pas trop en demander...mais je maintiens qu'elle est efficace quand meme! la perpsective joue beaucoup! l'effort a payé!

Gorgeous work. I'm a huge fan of Hawkeye and Mockingbird, and a fan of your work, and when I saw this on CBR I think I may have let out an entirely fangirlish (and uncharacteristic, I assure you) squeal of delight. Beautifully done, and I'm particularly thrilled to see your take on one of my favorite couples in comics.

Thank you so much, Emily. I'm really happy to read such comment as I'm also very fond of the characters. I remember reading the first Hawkeye mini series in the 80's (when he first met Mockingbird), and later WCA. Good times :)
Thanks again for the great feedback!

I trust Jim Mccann will give the character some well deserved exposure. ABOUT TIME! ;)

Thanks!The Hawkeye sketch was David Lopez work (I think). I wasn't involved in the design of the characters here. Just doing the covers, and enjoying the ride.

Much appreciated! I'm drawing Red Sonja's interiors, so doing the covers is all I can allow myself to do right now.
But the great David Lopez is the interior artist, so there's nothing to regret :)

I'm planning something pretty wicked to grab these company's attention, but I think you're right, this year should be good for me too haha :D

OOoooooooh!

Something to look forward to.

I remember seeing Lopez's Mockingbird redesigns and thinking they were VERY well done, but still in keeping with the spirit of the character. The issues themselves IIRC had a less than stellar colorist who killed the lineart. I'm going to look for this when it hits the stands and keep my fingers crossed for a competent colorist.

Sweet cover.

if CD isn't copying Marvel then it's vice versa. Green Arrow black Canary anyone? If it ends in them getting married I'm going to blow a valve.

Thanks!
Yeah, Marvel and DC have a long history in copying each others. I remember how fun I thought it was when they married Hawkeye to this blond karate bird woman. I think Mark Gruenwald (who wrote the original Hawkeye mini series in the 80's) was having a bit of fun doing that.

:iconwolfprime:
wolfprime Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2010
You've been around for a while huh Paul? I remember that mini and I think that's when I first noticed the copying. Mockingbird? Black Canary? Come on!

I'm surprised Marvel didn't put Mockingbird in Heroes for Hire in an effort to lure in some Birds of Prey fans.

:iconpaulrenaud:
PaulRenaud Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2010  Professional Artist
Heh, It's not too late to have Mockingbird join HfH.
I thought they were going in the Birds of Prey direction during Civil War, with Nick Fury in the shadow with Bucky working for him.
