Marvel Comics will release a new Deadpool series featuring The Merc with a Mouth, later this year.
The next adventure of Deadpool’s story begins in a brand-new ongoing series from creators Martin Coccolo and Alyssa Wong. Deadpool, a new Marvel comic series, will premiere in November and follow the infamous, loud-mouthed mercenary on a journey that includes gross-out body horror, unexpected romance, and more.
The official synopsis of the first issue reads: The world knows Wade Wilson is one of the top mercenary/assassins in the Marvel Universe, even if he is simultaneously the most annoying one…but he’s pushing to make that recognition official as he auditions for the elite group known as the 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.
About the new comic series, Wong said, “I love chaos. And what is Deadpool, if not chaos incarnate? I’m honoured to take the reins for Wade’s next solo adventure–expect romance, expect body horror, and expect a wild time!”
“Some time ago I got to do a ten-page story for Deadpool: Black, White & Blood. It was an awesome albeit short experience which left me wanting for more, so when I was asked if I wanted to take the reins of a new Deadpool series I responded with a resounding yes! Then I got to read Alyssa’s script and I loved it! Their script is inventive, dynamic and a lot of fun and working with Alyssa is an absolute joy. They are the best! So I honestly couldn’t be happier with this opportunity and I think, or at least hope, that readers notice how fun this project is for everyone involved and hopefully they hop on the ride with us,” added Coccolo.
In 1991’s The New Mutants #98, Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld’s Deadpool/Wade Wilson appeared first. The fourth-wall-breaking character, who possesses regenerative abilities and a tendency to never stop talking, has appeared in numerous X-Men comics and storylines, as well as his own solo series and other titles, over the years. The most recent appearance of Deadpool was in the four-issue series Deadpool: Bad Blood, which was published earlier this year and is a reprint of the same-named graphic novel from 2017.
Coccolo created the cover for Deadpool #1 and the Marvel issue goes on sale on 2 November.
