In a press release today, Marvel Comics teased a giant-sized wedding issue for the Merc with a Mouth, featuring stories from many of the writers who have taken Wade Wilson to psychotic heights which he now enjoys.
Given Deadpool’s nature, this issue is sure to be packed with references to other weddings and the wedding trope in general as it is approached in super-hero comics, so it should be quite a ride.
[FROM THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE]
Save the date! Marvel Comics would like to formally request the honor of your presence at the wedding of Deadpool this April in the pages of the super-sized “Deadpool #27”! Presiding over the ceremony will be Messers Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn with the artistic aesthetics of Mike Hawthorne and Scott Koblish.
A day you never dreamed would come has finally arrived – as Deadpool and his mysterious bride to be (wouldn’t you like to know?) tie the knot in front of friends and family alike. And in a way only the Merc With a Mouth can! Believe us, this one is going to be…interesting.
“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.”
The ceremony will be followed by a reception unlike any other – as ‘pool writers of yesteryear return for new stories featuring the garish groom-to-be. Including Fabian Nicieza, Mark Waid, Joe Kelly, Christopher Priest, Jimmy Palmiotti, Frank Tieri, Gail Simone, Daniel Way & Victor Gischler.
Though gifts are not required, the happy couple has requested you bring your own weapons to the reception. Please RSVP at your local comic shops when “Deadpool #27” walks down the aisle this April!
