Below is the J. Scott Campbell cover to Amazing Spider-Man #601 which is released on August 9 and is the kick-off of Mary Jane Month. The issue is written by Mark Waid and also includes a 6 page story written by Brian Bendis with art by Joe Quesada. That’s special. Also on sale in early August is the second printing of Deadpool: Merc With A Mouth #1, by Victor Gischler and Bong Dazo. Lastly here’s 3 X-Men related covers from this week’s comics.
Everyone’s favourite quip throwing mercenary returns to the pages of Marvel Comics in September in a new series from writer Daniel Way and artist Paco Medina. Before that, though be sure to head over to Marvel’s new Digital Comics Unlimited site, because they’re letting you read Deadpool Saga #0 for free. It will tell you everything you need to know about this wise-cracking, quick-healing anti-hero.
You don’t find such generosity in massive conglomerates these days, so make the most of it. Wade Wilson AKA Deadpool has had some pretty big names working on his series over the years, such as Joe Kelly and Ed McGuiness and the fans seem to hunger for more adventures of the “merc with a mouth.” Deadpool – he’s just like Wolverine, but twice as ugly, and with a sense of humour.
Deadpool has been around since the heady comic book days of the 1990s and has only grown in popularity. He certainly stands out from the typical superhero crowd. Ryan Reynolds will be playing the character in next year’s X-Men spin-off, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, though how close he’ll stay to his comic book equivalent is anyone’s guess at this stage.
