Widow Maker double cover by PaulRenaud Widow Maker double cover by PaulRenaud
This is my cover(s) for the Hawkeye & Mockingbird/Black Widow cross over : WIDOW MAKER. I was asked to draw the covers for H&M#7 and BW#9 that would be used as single covers, but also create a 2 part image put side to side. I had a hard time figuring how to connect the two fighting scenes together, so I went with the big red shadow gimmick I used on my Green Hornet covers. I worked on the negative spaces to create an overall design that would be dynamic and visually appealing.
Hope it works.


Here's from H&M writer Jim McCann about the cross over :
As announced last night, a crossover event is coming starring HAWKEYE & MOCKINGBIRD and BLACK WIDOW brought to you by myself & Duane Swierczynski. This has it all- fighting for their lives, racing around the world, uncomfortable team-ups, secrets and lies, and a new villain in a familiar suit coming back to haunt them. So, what is WIDOW MAKER?

Find out after the jump

The 4 part event is something weíve been building to for some time between Black Widow and Hawkeye & Mockingbird. Not only is it an organic crossover, itís one that has large-scale ramifications on both books. Duane Swierczynski and I have plotted a tight story that weaves in and out of our titles. The breakdown is below:

Part 1- HAWKEYE & MOCKINGBIRD #7 (Dec)
Part 2 - BLACK WIDOW #9 (Dec)
Part 3 - HAWKEYE & MOCKINGBIRD #8 (Jan)
Part 4 - BLACK WIDOW #10 (Jan)

Iím really excited since this is my first crossover. I grew up loving it when two books would cross over into each other because it was not only exciting but it also introduced me to new characters. Itís been fun getting to see what Duane has planned leading up to WIDOW MAKER and sharing with him what happens in my arc GHOSTS running through HAWKEYE & MOCKINGBIRD right now.

There is more info given in interviews with Duane & I at the following sites (Iíll update as more come in)

I canít stress enough how much this will really effect whatís to come after, so make sure you start reading HAWKEYE & MOCKINGBIRD and BLACK WIDOW, because weíre shaking things up in big ways. And best of all? This is only the beginning! What comes after WIDOW MAKER (and because of WIDOW MAKER) is something that will keep you guessing and coming back month after month!
