Marvel Comics Announces New DEADPOOL Series Ahead Of The Movie’s Release In Theaters Next Summer

Right in time for his return to the big screen next year, Marvel’s most iconic mercenary will headline a brand-new solo ongoing comic book series in the pages of Deadpool.

Arriving in comic book stores next April, the series will be written by Cody Ziglar, known for his critically acclaimed work on Miles Morales: Spider-Man, and illustrated by Rogê Antônio, the artist behind some of Venom and Carnage’s bloodiest recent adventures. Together, they’ll take readers and Wade guns blazing into a new age packed with Deadpool’s specific brand of violence and lunacy, along with a heavy dose of deadly family drama.

In addition to a brand-new archenemy named Death Grip – who may very well live up to his name – the series will also feature Deadpool’s daughter Ellie in a pivotal role. It’s a father/daughter duo the Marvel Universe isn’t ready for…and if Death Grip has his way, it’ll only lead to heartbreak!

A NEW ERA FOR THE MERC WITH A MOUTH, AND A GUN, AND A SWORD. Ziglar and Antônio have a wild ride planned for the Merc with the mouth! Introducing a terrifying new villain who won’t stop until he catches Wade in his DEATH GRIP. But all work and no play makes Deadpool a very DEAD boy!

“Wade’s been one of my favorite characters since I first got into super hero comics, so being asked to helm a Deadpool series was a dream come true,” Ziglar said in a press released shared by Marvel Comics earlier today. “I look forward to diving into and exploring Wade’s family (found or otherwise), his unique approach to being a (mostly) unkillable mercenary, as well see what kinda of whackos they bring into his orbit.”

Antônio adds, “Deadpool has always been on the list of characters I’d like to draw one day, and that’s finally happening! For me, he is one of the most fun characters and allows me to play with him a lot, artistically speaking. I can’t wait to see readers’ reactions!”

Releasing a new Deadpool series ahead of Deadpool 3‘s release next July makes all the sense in the world and, with that threequel set to be Marvel Studios’ only 2024 movie, we’re expecting next year to be the Merc with the Mouth’s chance to shine across all forms of media. 

This news also comes right after we learned of plans for a new Wolverine comic which will take Logan on a Multiversal team-up adventure.
