The Merc With a Mouth joins Marvel Comics' rapidly expanding "Fresh Start" initiative in June with a new Deadpool #1, written by Skottie Young (Rocket Raccoon) and illustrated by Nic Klein (Drifter).
Of course Young is no stranger to Wade Wilson, having provided the covers for Marvel's Cable & Deadpool #35-50. But here he'll be shifting to writing for an approach he described as "fast-paced, big and humorous."
“I like to write stories that move fast and keep you on the ride," he told Polygon, which announced the relaunched Deadpool. "And I like to try and make you laugh while someone his getting their arm broken or head exploded. hahaha. Similar to my run on Rocket, I like doing shorter stories and have threads that weave in and out.”
Skottie Young and Nic Klein bring you the craziest tales of the regeneratin’ degenerate yet! It’s been a while since Deadpool’s had to merc to make ends meet, but things are tough all over. WhileDeadpool tries to get his humble mercenary-for-hire business back off the ground, a catastrophic threat so unfathomably huge, so mind-breakingly cataclysmic it defies description, is heading towards Earth, and there’s only ONE PERSON WHO CAN STOP IT!!!
Oh no, wait, it’s…it’s not Wade, is it?
Oh, ☠☠☠☠. It’s Wade.
Deadpool #1, by Skottie Young and Nic Klein, arrives in June from Marvel Comics.
