Just in time for his highly anticipated return to the big screen next year, Marvel’s most iconic mercenary will headline a brand-new solo ongoing comic book series this April! DEADPOOL #1 will be written by Cody Ziglar, known for his acclaimed work on Miles Morales: Spider-Man, and drawn by Rogê Antônio, the artist behind some of Venom and Carnage’s bloodiest recent adventures.
Together, they’ll take readers and Wade guns blazing into a new age packed with Deadpool’s specific brand of violence and lunacy, along with a heavy dose of deadly family drama. As he confronts a brand-new archenemy named Death Grip—who may very well live up to his name—Wade will also reunite with his daughter Ellie. It’s the father/daughter duo the Marvel Universe isn’t ready for… and if Death Grip has his way, it’ll only lead to heartbreak!
Like all of Marvel’s hottest launches, DEADPOOL #1 will stand out on comic stands with a special FOIL VARIANT COVER. Drawn by best-selling cover artist InHyuk Lee, the explosive piece hints at the high-octane violence that will be packed into this wild new run!
“Wade’s been one of my favorite characters since I first got into superhero comics, so being asked to helm a Deadpool series was a dream come true,” Ziglar said. “I look forward to diving into and exploring Wade’s family (found or otherwise), his unique approach to being a (mostly) unkillable mercenary, as well see what kinda whackos they bring into his orbit.”
