Matteo Lolli is an artist whose work I’m not especially familiar with. But based on his work in this preview from October’s Hawkeye vs. Deadpool #1, it looks like I should probably be seeking more of it out.
Lolli is joined by regular Deadpool writer Gerry Duggan for the upcoming miniseries which sees the two characters having to stop a list of every active S.H.I.E.L.D. agent from getting into the wrong hands while also contending with a bunch of supervillains dressed as heroes on Halloween night.
You might know Duggan as co-writer on Deadpool with comedian Brian Posehn, where the two have been throwing increasingly weird enemies at the goofball assassin since the title launched back in 2013. Meanwhile, we learned last week that Hawkeye writer Matt Fraction will be departing the book with issue #22.
This unlettered preview doesn’t offer a whole lot in the way of hints about what’s in store for Deadpool and Hawkeye (or how/why the two of them will end up in a versus-type situation), but Black Cat (or someone dressed like Felicia Hardy’s alter ego) is involved, and that can’t be good.
Marvel’s Hawkeye vs. Deadpool #1 will go on sale October 8.
This October, the no-holds-barred antics of the Marvel Universe’s most unlikely duo continue in HAWKEYE VS. DEADPOOL #1 – the official first issue of the blockbuster comic event of the fall. Even though this is really the second issue, but who’s counting? Gerry Duggan and Matteo Lolli return for the battle of the century (maybe) as the Merc with a Mouth battles the Avenging Archer! It’s Halloween night in Brooklyn, and that can only mean one thing – disaster is around the corner! And candy, always candy. The names and addresses of every active S.H.I.E.L.D. agent are about to be released, and it’s up to one Avenger and one (sometimes) X-Man to stop it. But is it trick or treat when they encounter bad guys dressed like good guys? Will Deadpool and Hawkeye kill each other before the night is through? Find out when the clash continues this October in HAWKEYE VS. DEADPOOL #1!
