The news over at Marvel is that they have hired Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan, with art by the great Tony Moore to re-boot DeadPool in a brand new monthly series. You probably know Posehn best from his great stand-up work, or maybe his hilarious gay neighbor character on the Sara Silverman Show.
Or maybe you remember him getting shot in the head in Rob Zombie‘s Devil’s Rejects…
He is a quick-witted and very funny weirdo, much like many of us here in this deranged little classroom. This is not his first attempt at comics, either.
Posehn and his collaboraters on this new project all worked together previously on the hilarious mini-series The Last Christmas a few years ago.
The character of DeadPool is in need of an overhaul, and dark comedy is just what the doctor ordered. The series will reportedly revolve around Deadpool vs.the Undead Presidents Of The United States of America!
Marvel is making bold moves these days with their books and movies, and this is a great one. It is nice to see that they are so willing to take chances on creative people.
I am very much looking forward to seeing what these talented people can get away with in this series.
Issue #1 will hit your local comic shop this November.
Be sure and check it out, freaks!
