Like reading comics AND role-playing games? In May, Marvel brings us You Are Deadpool, where the five-part weekly mini-series also doubles as a role-playing adventure – dice and all.
“YOU ARE DEADPOOL is a five-part adventure gamebook in the classic tradition of FIGHTING FANTASY, LONE WOLF and DICEMAN — where YOU, and the cut-out-and-keep DEADPOOL DIE, control the action! Every week brings a COMPLETE single-player adventure — where you encounter glamorous guest-stars like HULK, GHOST RIDER, GRASSHOPPER, DAREDEVIL and ANOTHER GRASSHOPPER — that form an EPIC QUEST the like of which you’ve NEVER SEEN, unless you have!” teases series writer Al Ewing. “And there’s more! Fight END-OF-LEVEL BOSSES! Manage your inventory by STEALING background objects! Explore FIVE DIFFERENT TIME ZONES in NEARLY ANY ORDER! Play the TUTORIAL LEVEL! Enjoy UNIQUE MINIGAMES about BAR FIGHTS, BEAT POETRY and SNEAKING THROUGH LEVELS! LAUGH! CRY! CHEAT! It’s all waiting for YOU — because YOU ARE DEADPOOL!”
Joining Al Ewing are artist Salva Espin and Paco Diaz.
You are Deadpool #1 is scheduled to arrive on May 2, 2018.
