In case you missed it, I freakin’ love the Hawkeye comic (written by Matt Fraction, drawn by David Aja, Javier Pulido, Francesco Frankavilla, Annie Wu, and Matt Hollingsworth).  It’s extremely well written, the art is always on point, and the subject matter is relevant, engaging, and heart-breaking.

It’s also ending soon.  As in, one more issue to go.

So to celebrate what I consider to be one of the greatest comic runs, I’ve made a bracelet with the ASL for Hawkeye printed and glued to seven 14mm glass tiles, with two tiles with half an arrow on them.  The bracelet is nickel and lead free copper-toned brass.  It’s 8 inches plus a 1.5 inch extender chain.

Hold on a sex sec, ‘cause even though I have an Etsy shop with all kinds of Marvel jewelry, I’m giving this one away.

Why? Cause it’s super cool and hey, who doesn’t like giveaways?

Rules: Reblog or like for an entry. Reblog as many times as you like, go nuts.  You don’t have to be following me to enter.  It’ll end midnight eastern time October 8th, when the last issue comes out (gross sobbing ensues).  Anyone in the world can enter, I’ll ship it wherever.  I’ll use a random number generator to pick the winner.

Thanks for reading!

Clothed Clint still needs a few accessories, but I couldn’t resist a little progress comic!

(…Friendly reminder that there are reasons I don’t do these often.)

(…Friendly reminder that one of those reasons is extreme self doubt.)

I have no idea who’s talking to Clint off-panel. Coulson, maybe? Or Natasha? I like to think it’s Kate, to be honest.

That’s just silly, Steve.

Installment 4 in the Nano Hulk pattern. 

What technique are you using? I’ve found like 3 different methods but I haven’t tried them all yet.
I’m doing the YO at the begging of each row and dec (P2tog or SSK) at the ends.  It doesn’t look perfect, but it’s going to run up the side of the sweater and it’s right at a color change so I’m pretty pleased with the look so far. 

Intarsia in the round is a bit of a pain in the ass.  At least until you get the rhythm of it.
