DEADPOOL Gets Renumbered Under FRESH START with Skottie Young and Nic Klein
- Deadpool getting relaunched (again)
- Skottie Young and Nic Flein named as new creative team
- Violent and funny take on Merc-with-a-mouth’s adventures
It was recently revealed that Deadpool will be getting another relaunch under C.B. Cebulski’s FRESH START campaign. And he’s getting a new creative team too.
While we all know that Young is the brainchild behind those cutesy variant covers of the Marvel books, he’s also known as a good writer. In fact, he did a great job with the Rocket Raccoon solo book for a year or two ago. Turns out, he was slated to do Deadpool earlier but got benched so he landed on the Rocket project.
Before I pitched Rocket Raccoon back in 2013, I tried to get Deadpool. haha,” Young wrote to Polygon, “But he was spoken for so I said ‘well, i can kind of have a similar vibe for Rocket, just cleaned up a bit.’ So my head was already in that place.
I like to write stories that move fast and keep you on the ride. And I like to try and make you laugh while someone his getting their arm broken or head exploded. hahaha. Similar to my run on Rocket, I like doing shorter stories and have threads that weave in and out.
Here’s the official solicit for Deadpool # 1 which comes out June 6.
Skottie Young and Nic Klein bring you the craziest tales of the regeneratin’ degenerate yet! It’s been a while since Deadpool’s had to merc to make ends meet, but things are tough all over. WhileDeadpool tries to get his humble mercenary-for-hire business back off the ground, a catastrophic threat so unfathomably huge, so mind-breakingly cataclysmic it defies description, is heading towards Earth, and there’s only ONE PERSON WHO CAN STOP IT!!!
Oh no, wait, it’s…it’s not Wade, is it?
Oh, ☠☠☠☠. It’s Wade.
