DEADPOOL #1 Comes Out Today!
I only recently got into Deadpool about a few months ago thanks to my girlfriend. I always heard of the character and thought he had a cool outfit, but never bothered to actually look into what kind of comic it was. She had to do a little convincing to get my to check the series out, and I’m glad she did! I read a few of the trades and I absolutely love the character now. Wade Wilson has to probably be one of the most funniest characters I’ve read in comics, and it’s just an added bonus that he’s utterly insane. While Wade is a fantastic character and is the reason why anyone should even check out the series, I think my favorite aspect of the stories is that he’s completely self aware that he’s in a comic book and knows that he has an audience. You’ve seen me cover movies on here with meta aspects, so naturally Deadpool had me interested.
The reason for this post is that a new run of Deadpool begins today with the release of Deadpool #1. Probably the most exciting part of all of this is that the character is now being written by Brian Posehn and Gerry Dugan. It just seems like a genius decision to have two comedians tackle Marvel’s most hilarious character. My girlfriend will be picking up the issue today and I’m very excited to read it. Deadpool dealing with a conflict involving zombie presidents sounds to good to pass up. So go out to your comic book store and pick it up!
