Thunderbolts #14 Preview and what's coming for Deadpool.

[UPDATED 8/20/13:]

With next week's Thunderbolts #14, Charles Soule (who's been doing a great job on the book so far) officially becomes the ongoing writer, Jefte Paolo comes on board as the new artist, and the team get a new mission, courtesy of Frank Castle...

You can check out a full Preview at Comic Book Resources here; and an interview with Charles Soule, talking with Newsarama about his plans for the T-Bolts during the Infinity crossover here.

The next issue of Wade Wilson's regular book (Deadpool #15, out Aug 28) kicks off 'The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly,' an arc that sees the Merc with a Mouth teaming with Wolverine and Captain America to investigate the mysterious outfit that's been harvesting Wade's regenerating organs.

These peeps have ties to Weapon X, the program that made Deadpool the unkillable messed-up fruitloop he is. Mental barriers blocking some of Wade's darker memories have recently come down--and with all of this past-connecting stuff coming together, and judging by the cover for Deadpool #19, 'The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly' looks like the Deadpool story I've been waiting for. One that taps into some of the stuff I also touch on in my Deadpool pitch.

I'm waiting 'til I'm high enough profile to be in a position to hopefully make that pitch, and I'm intrigued as to how the events of 'The Good, The Bad...' will affect it.

Also looking like an essential read is November's Deadpool Annual #1. Written by The Thrilling Adventure Hour's Bens Acker & Blacker, this book's gonna answer the question of what happened to the voices in Wade's head (absent since his Marvel NOW! relaunch) and will feature--as well as Thor, Daredevil, and Luke Cage--Madcap. Like Deadpool, the seldom-seen Madcap is also a seemingly-indestructible loon, and this should be interesting...
