Page 45 Review by Jonathan

"I pulled the records of that strip club you busted up."
"How did you know about that?"
"Okay, okay, I'm sorry. I wasn't there for the girls I was there for the guys. No, wait..."

Ha ha, the gags are still coming thick and fast in this final volume of Fraction, Aja et al's career-redefining highlight. Clint Barton's, that is! This volume collects #12-13, #15, #17, #19 & #21-22 as the monthly title bobbed backwards and forward from East Coast to West Coast between Clint and Kate's stories. Her final volume was collected in HAWKEYE VOL 3: L.A. WOMAN, though of course Kate does turn up here in just the nick of time to save Clint's behind one more time too!

Before that there's time for a family reunion as Barney Barton turns up to continue the Barton Brothers' trademark love-hate sibling rivalry. In reality though, they've always had each other's backs, and Clint is going to need all the help he can get as the Tracksuit Draculas perform their very own climatic remake of Assault On Precinct 13 on Clint's apartment building. But who better to take on the not-so-dapper mafia bros than the Barton Bros? It's an enduring double act with its own special magic that's all about the timing...

"Surrounded, Bro. Van, Bro."
"C'mon, c'mon... one trick, one time. You guys might be my last audience ever, right? Come on. Just say the magic word."
""Abra Cadabra"?"
"What you say, Bro?"
""Barney," say "Barney.""
"No, no, come on, it's a magic trick and I got my pants down. You all gotta shout it."
"Thanks, Bro."

Enter Barney Barton stage left armed only with a dustbin lid for some Bro head-cracking activity...
