Deadpool’s got some bad blood to sort out in his newest graphic novel from Marvel and creator Rob Liefeld.
The pool of dead
This May, comics legend Rob Liefeld returns to Marvel alongside fan-favorite creators Chris Sims & Chad Bowers (X-Men ’92) for an explosive adventure so big, it needed its own Original Graphic Novel to tell it! Today, Marvel is pleased to announce that the highly anticipated DEADPOOL: BAD BLOOD OGN will be available on May 17th wherever comics and books are sold, and we’re giving fans a brand-new look inside!
Shooting, stabbing and otherwise annoying his way across the Marvel Universe has made Deadpool his fair share of enemies over the years. Even though his sordid past contains no shortage of unfriendly faces, there is one he can’t quite place. A brutal new foe known only as Thumper. Who is this new menace that has the Merc With a Mouth so outmatched and outgunned? What is Deadpool’s past connection to this new baddie?
Wade’s journey to uncover the mystery of Thumper will take him across the Marvel Universe and face-to-face with many familiar faces. Cable! Domino! X-Force! Even Star-Lord! Blood will be shed and old scores will be settled. Deadly twists and turns await as Wade Wilson faces one of his greatest challenges yet. Don’t miss the full length DEADPOOL: BAD BLOOD OGN when it comes to comic shops and book stores every on May 17th!

Guess who’s back?
Kind of a double dose of cool here for this one. Original Graphic Novels, for all the push they got at Marvel in the last year or so, still aren’t all that common. As a fan who remembers when they were, I always like seeing one pop up. And one with Deadpool is doubly cool, as he’s such a huge part of Marvel.
Secondly, it’s good to see Liefeld back at the company, working on old Wade. He created Deadpool, along with Cable and Domino (and others) back in the 90s, you know. And it’s neat to see him tackling not only his characters once again, but his biggest star. With all the content that’s shoehorned into this one too, it should be a wild ride.
