• Trick or treat! It's Halloween in Brooklyn, and that can only mean one thing -- disaster is right around the corner!
•  Why are the bad guys dressed as good guys? And will Deadpool and Hawkeye kill each other before they figure it out? The blockbuster comic event of the fall returns for its official #1 issue (even though this is really issue 2, but what does a number really even MEAN anyway?)!
Rated T+

    Overall, ‘Hawkeye vs. Deadpool' #1 delivers what you expect from Hawkeye's stand alone series as well as what you would expect from Deadpool. Wilson appears to be a little toned down from his over the top narrative in this one and to be fully honest you almost wouldn't even notice with how well he fits in here. Of all of his recent Vs titles this is probably one of the better written ones from the past few years, at least so far. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Oct 8, 2014

    With a great creative team and an even greater cast, Hawkeye vs. Deadpool continues to exceed nearly every expectation faced thus far. Duggan advances his narrative just enough to remind us that it's there, but in the end it's the book's ever present wit and awesome art that will keep us coming back for more. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Oct 8, 2014

    HAWKEYE VS. DEADPOOL has just about everything you'd expect from it -- you know, aside from them actually fighting each other! It's establishing a mystery which is amusing enough, but that's totally overshadowed by the energetic, animated artwork and the hilarious interactions between these two characters. Duggan's story thrives on lighthearted developments and great banter, but every so often, a little bit of depth is sprinkled in, too. It prevents this from feeling too silly and manages to treat these characters with a good amount of respect. This book has the potential to take some pretty dark and twisted turns, but as of right now, it's just the right thing to read if you want to forget about your troubles and lose yourself in a fun adventure.

    Following on from Hawkeye & Deadpool #0, this second issue (numbering notwithstanding) from writer Gerry Duggan doesn't quite have the same meta-awareness of art-driven storytelling as the first issue, but it's a whole lot of fun. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jason Lapadula Oct 14, 2014

    This story is a great addition to the ‘Pool-verse; it's a fun, quirky, and laughable tale. It's great to see two very unique worlds collide. A lot of adventure may have beenthrust upon us in the first (two) issue(s), but thats not a terrible thing. It seems to be leading up to a bigger, grander story and the fun has only just begun.
