In 1997, writer Joe Kelly and artist Ed McGuinness teamed for a very memorable nine-issue run on “Deadpool,” a major component in building the character’s cult-favorite status that’s led to success like the upcoming live-action film from 20th Century Fox, scheduled for release in February 2016. As part of the “Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends” panel Sunday at Comic-Con International in San Diego, Marvel has announced that Kelly and McGuinness will reunite for a new Deadpool story — this time with Spider-Man in tow.
“Spider-Man/Deadpool” is set to debut in fall of this year, and as the name suggests, it’s set to feature something of a team-up between Spider-Man and Deadpool together — though, of course, the inherent tension between the two may bring them to conflict. Marvel hasn’t yet specified if the series is planned as an ongoing or miniseries; but a major surprise is billed for the last page of the first issue.
Beyond his 33 issues of “Deadpool,” Kelly has plenty of history with Spider-Man, as well, as part of the “Webheads” writing team on “Amazing Spider-Man” from 2008 to 2010. Deadpool and Spider-Man also famously intertwined in the Kelly-written “Deadpool” #11, illustrated by Pete Woods, which saw Deadpool time travel into the pages of the Silver Age-era “Amazing Spider-Man” #47.
