Comic books are about to get really self-aware! Thanks to the events of Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, Deadpool, in his new series Deadpool Killustrated, has figured out he’s a fictional character and he’s sick of it! He wants to break everyone free from the constraints that comic writers place on them, but how? Killing a superhero just means there’s another multiverse where they’re still alive. So Deadpool’s going back, waaaaaaay back, to the classics of literature! After all, if he eliminates the inspirations for today’s heroes, then the heroes themselves will be eliminated!
If you expect a Deadpool who never stops cracking wise and playing the fool, then you should stick with the Marvel NOW! Deadpool. There is still a fair dose of humour, but this book will never let you forget that Deadpool is actually a hardened, regenerating assassin with a cynical outlook on life. And realizing that he isn’t even real has set him even further into his insanity. This is the Deadpool for grown-ups.
In Deadpool Killustrated #1 our anti-hero travels through the stories of Don Quixote and Moby Dick, with several surprise guest appearances from other corners of the literary world. While Deadpool slices and dices, altering literature forever, there is an actual plot going on in the background, but as of yet it’s all a big shadowy mistery.
Deadpool Killustrated #1 is available now for $2.99 and if you want to see a very meta dissection of the whole comic book industry, or if you just wanna watch an immortal guy cut open the world’s most famous whale, make sure to pick this one up!
