Marvel Announces New ‘Deadpool’ Artist Mike Hawthorne with Tasty Arthur Adams Teaser
Mike Hawthorne is a talented and versatile artist whose work has appeared all over the American comics industry for many years, and whose biggest break we're pleased to announce has finally come with a new stint on the standout Marvel NOW title Deadpool. Hawthorne will be following the esteemed Tony Moore on the second arc of Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan's action/comedy book starring Wade Wilson, the anarchic "Merc with a Mouth" whose recent adventures have seem him go to war with the zombified corpses of America's dead presidents. A contributor to such adventure titles as Conan: Road of Kings and G.I. Joe: Origins; darkly funny comics like The Exterminators, The Un-Men, Fear Agent and The Goon; and just straight up violent-and-dark-as-hell comics like Grendel: Red, White & Black, Hawthorne is a fine choice for the uniquely gruesome and frequently hilarious Deadpool. His romcom with Antony Johnston, Three Days in Europe, is also a great little book (if you can find it).
