Well, originally my editor wanted a parody image of the classic Wolverine shot where his fist is under the chin of Deadpool, but unlike the classic image, only the middle claw is popped and going through DP's head and coming out the top. But, not breaking the fabric of DP's mask. A classic way to get around the sensors.
But that felt a little lame because you can't see DP's face for a good reaction. So I came up with a different approach. Seen here. [IMG][link]
The editor liked it but it was ultimately shot down by those same sensors for being "too much". Haha. So "one" claw through the head = OK. Three claws = No way Jose.
So instead, we went with what you see above in final form. A more metaphorical cover, as DP isn't really tiny, it's just I thought it would be funny if he was laying on a bed of nails(claws). Just like the cover I did for issue 53 [link]
DP really doesn't have 6 arms.
