You can't keep a good Madcap down! First, this massively oversized issue brings you the return of Deadpool's greatest nemesis. He's back (in the most horrific way possible) and he's out for revenge! Then, say hello to SHAKESPOOL, THE MERCENARY OF VENICE as Deadpool goes Shakespeare for an all-new 60-page tale by Ian Doescher (William Shakespeare's Star Wars series). Those old plays you were supposed to read in English class just got a lot more interesting. Don't say we never taught you anything!
"Deadpool" #21 hits stands in October.
