A new era for the Merc with a Mouth kicks off in November as Alyssa Wong (Star Wars: Doctor Aphra) and Martin Coccolo (Hulk vs. Thor: Banner of War) launch a brand new ongoing Deadpool series from Marvel Comics.
Deadpool’s latest solo exploits start with a bang as a new mercenary group sends Deadpool on one of his most dangerous missions, a drunken villain unleashes a twisted plan on Wade’s body with horrific side effects, and a hot new romance arrives on the scene to make Wade crazy!
The world knows that Wade Wilson is one of the best mercenaries/assassins in the Marvel Universe, even if he’s also the most annoying…but he’s pushing to make that recognition official as he auditions for the elite group known as Atelier. Now he has 48 hours to kill one of the world’s most famous supervillains. Only problem? He’s been kidnapped and something… strange… IS GROWING INSIDE HIM.
“I love chaos,” Wong said. “And what is Deadpool if not chaos incarnate? I’m honored to take the reins on Wade’s next solo adventure – expect romance, expect body horror, and expect a wild time!”
“Some time ago I had a ten-page story done for me Deadpool: Black, White and Blood” added Coccolo. “It was a great, if brief, experience that left me wanting more, so when I was asked if I would take the reins on a new Deadpool series, I said a resounding yes! Then I got to read Alyssa’s script and I loved it! Their script is inventive, dynamic and very funny, and Alyssa is an absolute pleasure to work with. They are the best! So I honestly couldn’t be more pleased with this opportunity and I think, or at least hope, that readers notice how much fun this project is for everyone involved and hopefully jump on the ride with us!”
Deadpool #1 goes on sale in November 2022.
