Infinite Comics is Marvel’s new approach of making comics work on mobile devices, with original content made specifically for phones and tablets. It’s a good idea for those who want to read something new which they can fit in their pocket, and take out while they’re waiting for their bus to arrive. Below are two press releases and a text-free preview, about Deadpool’s second issue of The Gauntlet, and a soon to be released series starring an amnesiac Spider-Man. Spidey’s series is entitled Who Am I and kicks off in April (yes, with the returning Peter Parker. Yay!)

Deadpool’s first assignment? Obtain and secure a very special package for Dracula (which may or may not damn all of mankind. Just saying.).

As Deadpool slashes through his most absurd adventure yet, the Gauntlet is finally thrown in the year’s hottest digital comic! And the wedding bells will only ring louder as Wade takes another step towards his marriage to (You Wish!) in April’s mega-sized DEADPOOL #27!

He’s in the process of robbing a bank,” says series writer Joshua Hale Fialkov in an interview with Marvel.com. “If you remove identity and get to the core of who Peter Parker really is, is he a hero?
