Rob Liefeld Claims Deadpool Corps Already “Cancelled” With Issue 12

Yesterday, Marvel announced that the readers could decide which Deadpool comic would be cancelled, Deadpool Team-Up or Deadpool Corps.

Rob Liefeld, who left Deadpool Corps with issue 9 was taken aback. He tweeted;

Just checked out that poll. That’s a charade. The decision has already been made.

And I honestly thought I’d seen everything possible in this business….

The TRUTH shall set you free. And the truth is that all discussions and correspondence on DPC has it as a 12 issue mini-series. Confused.

On the Bleeding Cool forums, he clarified;

Hey everyone, long time no chat.

First off, I’d like to point out that my last issue, #9 has been completed. I asked off DPC in the summer and stayed until #9. The book was always referred to as a 12 issue maxi series, like Merc w/a Mouth before it. I did covers #1-12. 12 was referred to as the final cover.

I’m confused as to the poll. But a stunt is a stunt and Marvel is free to do as they please. Maybe it will rally support. It’s certainly grabbed attention. Never know. I just hope that Victor and Marat’s work on DPC is completed.

And those of you who supported both books, thank you.

So is this a fix? Are Marvel really counting your votes? And if so, what if they say that Deadpool Team-Up should be cancelled? What then?
