Default Is Hawkeye #11 really just about a dog? The entire issue?

I was just checking next Wednesday's releases (Think Tank #8; does anything else really matter?), and I came across the synopsis for Hawkeye #11. I loved the book Cujo by Stephen King as it got inside the dog's head as it was feeling the effects of rabies, but I guess I never would have expected to see it in a popular mainstream comic series. I must say I'm intrigued and I will read it, but it seems like a bit of a gamble from Matt Fraction as Hawkeye is considered by many people to be one of the top five to ten best written books out there.

Anyone else have any positive or negative opinions about this and will anyone who doesn't read Hawkeye going to pick it up? Also, when is Pizza Dog's first appearance and will it see any kind of significant spike?

Product Details: Hawkeye #11 vol 4

Not just a dog...PIZZA DOG! I saw an interview with Fraction where he said Aja is doing the art in colors only dogs see since it's really point of view. Really looking forward to this one, Hawkeye has been an awesome series so far.

I would love to see a Hawkeye movie based on Fraction's Hawkeye, not the boring, brooding Jeremy Renner version from the Avengers movie.

It's so different and unique, this could sell out. Keep an eye on this one.

Let me just get the first bad joke out of the way; this issue is going to be for the dogs.

I'm salivating waiting for my copy to arrive.

I'll definitely pick up a few of these next week.

Not to get off topic, but didn't you find the movie Cujo horrible compared to the book..I waited and waited for the boy to die..And nothing..I know it sounds morbid, but King is known for killing off innocence etc..

Yeah, the movie was no match for the book. In the book you got into all of the dog's thoughts and pain as it was going through full rabies transformation. There was no way to convey those emotions and thoughts in movie form, unless of course they had Morgan Freeman narrate it. I always understand something better when Morgan Freeman explains it to me.

Seeing as how the Internet meme Grumpy Cat has a movie deal, anything is possible. In fact, I heard that Marvel Studios is speaking with George Clooney to voice "Pizza Dog" for a full feature film to be released in the next 3 years! (this is a joke btw but the Grumpy cat movie is not )

I like Francavilla's art, and I'm interested to see what it looks like from a dog's perspective. So I will be picking this one up.

Agree big time, I love Frans art... along with Scottish artist Jock they are held in high regard by me. Highlight being the black mirror run for detective comics.

Both of them are appearing at this years thought bubble festival so a chance to get them to sign an issue of it is HUGE!

Oh, and yes I shall check this issue of hawkguy out too!

I think they print enough to meet demand and don't see a high resale value on this title either. Might be a neat book to read though

I hesitate to say I "read" it, there isn't much dialogue, but I rushed through it and need to check out all the symbols that replaced dialogue in Pizza Dog's head. It might be pure genius that I missed because I was trying to get through it fast, or it just might be a total waste of time. TBD...

My bad...I though Francavilla was the artist, but it's actually Ruff (see cover).

I liked the symbols. Gave me a good laugh. Especially when he encounters the two thugs. (two strangers...no bones...this guy beats dog, other guy kicks dog...RUN!)
