This was a really fun read. It lacked seriousness, but that's not too surprising seeing who was headlining the title. If you're a fan of either Hawkeye or Deadpool, you'll enjoy this one.
Hawkeye vs Deadpool is a short, five issue comic run that follows both Hawkeyes and Deadpool as they hunt for a flash drive full of SHIELD identities. In their way- Typhoid Mary, Black Cat, and a bunch of brainwashed asylum patients.
It's a light read with lots of fun quips and jokes that is sure to entertain. Both Hawkeye and Deadpool have a similar sense of humor in that they're always the comic relief of stories. I liked that they chose to pair them up. I loved that Kate was there as well, since I love her, but I do think she was written rather poorly. She was treated, by the writer, as a much more "girly" version of her character. Don't get me wrong, she's not not "girly" but they just painted her in a strange light, I thought. It got on my nerves a bit since from other books you don't get this from her.
Also annoying- the art seemed to keep changing. It was really slight but it got on my nerves nonetheless. I did enjoy the art overall, though. The cover is one of my absolute favorite pieces in the whole book, honestly.
I think most people will enjoy this one. I myself am a huge Hawkeye fan (less of a Deadpool fan) and I thought it was a good story. I do think it focuses a bit more on Hawkeye than Deadpool, especially with the way the story starts and ends. Anyway, if you want to add it to your goodreads shelf click here.
