James Harren is the runner-up this week with this cover featuring our two title characters. It is a fun and absurd image that kicks off this mini-series in style. On one side we have Hawkeye unleashing arrow after arrow against his opponent on the other side, Deadpool, who is armed with a Nerf bow launching soft and squishy foam projectile after soft and squishy foam projectile. The difference in ammo is apparent as we see Deadpool punctured with numerous arrows all over his body, resembling a human pincushion, while his harmless foam ammo are bent and lying limp. That Deadpool even thinks that his Nerf ammo would have any affect on Clint Barton speaks volumes to his mental instability. In the middle of the cover rests a giant bullseye coloured to match Hawkeye’s iconic palette with a Deadpool symbol in the centre, a symbol that raises one eye as if to say that it can’t believe what is transpiring before it. The bullseye itself has plenty of damage ranging from chips to holes to explosive residue which clearly gets across that while their current battle is one of pure silliness, the violence and war will escalate and grow from here. It is a cover that instantly grabs our attention and makes us wonder why on Earth these two are fighting in the first place and is the tip of the iceberg of what should be a simply marvelous event filled with comedy and action.
