It has long been official that Deadpool would be head lining in his very own video game, but now the list of all the characters that will be included is starting to compile on the Internet. Today, Wolverine was announced as part of the cast.
Deadpool, the merc with a mouth and a sizable fan base, has been given the Marvel NOW treatment of having a completely new creative team; a team which has kept the book going for nine issues now, with no end currently in sight. As we all know, something does not have to be good for it to sell well, so does Deadpool have the quality to match the quantity? Find out, after the jump.
Marvel sent Major Spoilers the variant cover to X-Men #1, that not only features Deadpool, but a zombie Deadpool cover by Arthur Suydam.
Or – “The Sensational Character Find Of 1991!”
The success of Deadpool is the kind of thing that really makes you love comics. His pedigree isn’t impressive (a not-at-all subtle knockoff of Deathstroke, from a creator who is, at best, controversial) and he comes from a timeframe widely lambasted for its excesses. Moreover, he is a comedic character with a tendency to break the fourth wall, making him a perfect storm of things that could go horribly wrong. And yet, he’s become a key weapon in Marvel’s arsenal, with a recent high-profile relaunch. What’s the secret? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Marvel has definitely had highs and lows when it comes to the video game adaptations of their properties and the jury is still out on which of those Deadpool: The Game will fall into. Get a better idea if you will be rushing to the store for the game by watching the trailer after the jump.
Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Deadpool #6, by Brian Posehn, Gerry Duggan, and Tony Moore, that you can check out, after the jump!
Do you like wacky, over-the-top fun comics? Do you like smart comics that discuss meta-fictional theory to get at the underlying nature of humanity through the nature of storytelling? Me, too–Do you know where I can find any of those? This week I review Deadpool Killustrated, an excuse to show the Merc-with-a-mouth stab beloved characters from classic fiction. Is there more to it than that? Find out after the jump.
This April, Wade Wilson makes a deal with the devil (sort of) in Deadpool #8, kicking off the all-new arc from the blockbuster creative team of writers & comedians Brian Posehn (The Sara Silverman Program), Gerry Duggan (Attack of the Show!, Infinite Horizon) and superstar artist Mike Hawthorne (Conan)! As part of Marvel NOW!, Deadpool takes no prisoners, as the industry’s top creators join the top Super Heroes to deliver all-new ongoing series, great for new and veteran readers alike!
I started picking up this book because I so loved the previous Thunderbolts comic. By keeping the same title, Marvel has played upon the goodwill that they previously built up to get me to give this one a chance. But, for good or ill, this is not the Thunderbolts that you remember. Has Marvel leveraged the Thunderbolts brand to introduce me to a new book that I’ll enjoy, or have they trod its good name into the mud, forever tainting the happy memories I associated with it?
April is looking to be a big month for Marvel with all the switch-ups on creative teams across their books. With Iron Man 3 coming out early in May it makes sense for the company to transfer movie buzz into comic sales. Anyways, today’s first teaser from the House of Ideas is Deadpool screaming for ice cream.
For many, when they think of “Dead Presidents” they think of the Jay-Z song. Personally, I think of the J Geils Band cover of the Little Walter song. When Deadpool thinks of “Dead Presidents,” he thinks “lots and lots of guns,” and that’s why he has a comic book and I don’t. Major Spoilers takes a look at the Regeneratin’ Degenerate’s attempt to reduce the size of the federal government in Deadpool #3!
In an effort to poke fun at DC Comics, Marvel is releasing their own variant cover for Uncanny X-Men #1 – the 53 State Birds Variant.
