The Merc with a Mouth will return to his own title in November, courtesy of writer Alyssa Wong and artist Martin Coccolo.
“I love chaos,” Wong told Marvel.com. “And what is Deadpool if not chaos incarnate? I’m honored to take the reins for Wade’s next solo adventure–expect romance, expect body horror, and expect a wild time!”
Here are all the details from Marvel:
Deadpool’s latest solo exploits will kick off with a bang as a new mercenary group sends Wade on one of his most dangerous missions, an intoxicating villain unleashes a twisted plan on his body with horrifying side effects, and a hot new romance arrives on the scene to drive him crazy!
The world knows Wade Wilson is one of the top mercenary/assassins in the Marvel Universe, even if he is simultaneously the most annoying one… but he’s pushing to make that recognition official as he auditions for the elite group known as the Atelier. Now, he has 48 hours to kill one of the world’s most famous supervillains. Only problem? He’s been kidnapped, and something… strange… is GROWING INSIDE HIM.
“Some time ago I got to do a 10-page story for Deadpool: Black, White & Blood. It was an awesome albeit short experience which left me wanting for more, so when I was asked if I wanted to take the reins of a new Deadpool series I responded with a resounding yes!” Coccolo said. “Then I got to read Alyssa’s script and I loved it! Their script is inventive, dynamic and a lot of fun and working with Alyssa is an absolute joy. They are the best! So I honestly couldn’t be happier with this opportunity and I think, or at least hope, that readers notice how fun this project is for everyone involved and hopefully they hop on the ride with us!”
Look for the first issue on Nov. 2.
