A message from the Future! About Deadpool! For YOU!

Following the success of Brian Posehn & Gerry Duggan's run on Deadpool, in which S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Preston's consciousness was trapped in Wade Wilson's mind - in 2016 the powers that be thought it'd be a smart move to give another comedic writer, Tyler Perry, the chance to work his magic on the Merc with a Mouth.

It wasn't.

After years of raising my profile with my comics Geek-Girl, Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman, and The Almighties - showcasing that I had the skillz to give good MwaM - poised to make my pitch, my dreams were snatched away from me and then shattered in a mess of mixed metaphors when Perry did a switcheroo with Deadpool and Preston.

The writer/director/actor put Deadpool in the body of a generously-proportioned black lady and leave the mercenary game to 'devote more time to tacos' - and descended the Merc with a Mouth into sitcom Hell - taking his sales with him.

The book got canned before I ever got my shot at writing my beloved Merc with a Mouth.

Dream over?...

...Not on my watch, Poindexter!. I determined to travel back in time to the point where Deadpool was at his most accessible in a bid to get so many new readers to jump on Deadpool books that the numbers would be stronger than even Perry's woman-shaped-ham-fistedness could dismantle.

That time is 1.15.14 - which I'm calling Day of the Deadpool; when Night of the Living Deadpool #1 hits, Ghost Rider joins the Merc's team in the All-New Marvel NOW! jump-on issue of Thunderbolts, and the first part of Wade's Digital Comic Deadpool: The Gauntlet comes out in print for FREE at your local comic shop!

Whether you're a hardcore Deadhead or have never read a Deadpool comic in your life, I'm inviting you to check out Previews of all of these comics below and join the Day of the Deadpool Facebook Event; invite your friends whom you think might dig the Merc with a Mouth, and go get yer funnybooks and be at the page on 1.15.14 for more Deadpool nonsense including my Deadpool-parodying future-member-of-The-Almighties Wayne Winston - and just maybe some tidbits about Deadpool's looming marriage!
