Deadpool’s Getting Hitched – Your First Look at “Deadpool #27”!
Save the date! The Merc With a Mouth is about to become the Merc in Matrimony this April in the pages of the super-sized “Deadpool #27” – from current Deadpool writers Gerry Duggan & Brian Posehn along with an epic assortment of past Deadpool writers!
A day you never dreamed would come has finally arrived – and it’s going to be anything but traditional. For starters, his bride Shiklah is an ancient and royal succubus (see Deadpool: The Gauntlet). Believe us, the ceremony is going to be one for the ages!
“We’re complicating his life and we’ll be pulling him in different directions,” said writer Gerry Duggan in an interview with Marvel.com. “I think that’s something everyone can relate to, and will lead to some more fun comic books.”
But the main story is just the beginning! This super-sized issue is packed to the gills with new stories from all-star Deadpool writers of yesteryear – including Fabian Nicieza, Mark Waid, Joe Kelly, Christopher Priest, Jimmy Palmiotti, Frank Tieri, Gail Simone, Daniel Way & Victor Gischler!
