Scoop! Kelly Thompson And Leonardo Romero's Hawkeye, Stars Kate Bishop, For Marvel NOW! (ART UPDATE)

Kelly Thompson 
and Leonardo Romero are the new creative team on the new Hawkeye series, coming from Marvel Comics as part of the Marvel NOW relaunch, and giving the Kate Bishop character the lead.

Kate Bishop, who first appeared in Young Avengers #1 and took the Hawkeye name in Young Avengers #12, gained a lot of popularity – and took the occasional lead – in the Fraction/Aja/Wu award-winning Hawkeye run. The character has also recently been sharing the lead in All-New Hawkeye.

Now it looks like the book is her own.

Kelly is best known for her work on Jem & The Holograms, but also for Marvel writing  A-Force, Carol Corps as well as her own comic Heart In A Box.
