Marvel released the following teaser to accompany the announcement that starting April, Mike Hawthorne will handle art duties on Deadpool, joining writers Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn.
This announcement is somewhat not surprising on multiple levels. While we’re huge Tony Moore fans, it’s a well documented fact that monthly comics are a challenge for him and his detailed (and awesome) style of art. We fully expected to see another artist come on board. To hear that it’s Mike Hawthorne was not a surprise as Hawthorne and Moore have a long standing relationship of working together, as evidenced by the last few issues of the legendary Fear Agent. Having Hawthorne join the team on Deadpool will definitely help to keep the visual look of the series consistent and we don’t predict there being an ounce of dropped quality as Hawthorne is indeed an excellent artist in his own right.
The bigger question lies, “Ice Cream Truck?”
