Artists Steve Lieber (Whiteout) and Jesse Hamm (Good As Lily) will join him for two stories of heroism set around the storm that ravaged the East Coast of North America in October.

"Hawkeye has turned out to be a book about a regular guy doing superhuman things so this seemed the appropriate place to tell a story about precisely that - regular people, real people, coming together in the face of this once-a-century scale disaster," said Fraction.

"We kinda sorta blew our schedule up to make this happen; the book was written in a few days of frenzy and will be drawn in two halves - a Clint Barton story handled by Steve Lieber, and a Kate Bishop story drawn by Jesse Hamm.

"Both are Portland guys, like me, and both are phenomenally talented. I'm blessed to be able to work with artists of their caliber at all, let alone on a suicide mission like this book."

Regular series artist David Aja will return in February to continue the title's ongoing narrative.

Hawkeye #7 will be released on January 16.
