Marvel Comics’ NOW! push continues with Deadpool #8 as the merc with a mouth forges an alliance with a demon. That should turn out just fine no?
The Presidents are dead (again) but that doesn’t mean Deadpool is done with the re-animated! When Wade makes a deal with a demon to collect souls of the damned, he finds himself in a precarious situation because if he does not complete what’s asked of him – one his closest friends will be taken FOREVER!
“Brian, Gerry and Mike are cranking up the volume way past 10 for this one,” said Axel Alonso, Editor In Chief, Marvel Entertainment. “You scream, I scream, we’ll all be screaming for more Deadpool when you see just how much we’re letting them all get away with!”
No, it’s not your imagination, an ice cream truck dropping on Wade (and the title I Scream for that matter) doesn’t really make any sense when you think about the story arc that Marvel just outlined above- but this is Deadpool remember? There probably wasn’t a really great chance of anything involving him making all that much sense.
Deadpool is just one of those characters that Marvel can seemingly do just about anything with and it all seems perfectly sane. …well, as ‘sane’ as a completely insane ‘hero’ can seem anyway.
Look for Deadpool #8 to hit stands soon from the minds of Brian Posehn (The Sara Silverman Program) and Gerry Duggan (Attack of the Show!, Infinite Horizon)- and with the pencils of artist Mike Hawthorne (Conan).
