Read Deadpool for Free

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.

  1. It says I have to subscribed does that mean pay too?

    • You can read this particular issue for free. It’s only short and isn’t a story as much – more like a look at the background of Deadpool with a few pictures from his comics over the years thrown in. You do have to get a subscription to Marvel’s Digital Comics Unlimited, but you can find heaps of freebies here, and they’re always adding to it.

      The newer issues are free previews only (just the first few pages, not the whole issue) but the older ones are complete free issues.

      • Not anymore, I only got to 4/9 and it told me to subscribe. I tried issue 1 and it wouldn’t let me read past the 4th panel.

        You have to pay to see anything on that site now.

      • That’s a shame. 4 panels isn’t much of a preview.

  2. Yep you never even see Deadpool in the preview. Gee, this tells me a lot about Deadpool.
