Solicits Confirm Deadpool to Be "Canceled" with Despicable Deadpool #300

Solicits Confirm Deadpool to Be “Canceled” with Despicable Deadpool #300

Posted by January 23, 2018 Comment

Earlier this month, Bleeding Cool told you that Despicable Deadpool would be canceled with May’s Despicable Deadpool #300, only to be relaunched with a new number one issue in June. Now that Marvel has released the April solicitations, at least the first part of that report has proven true.

April’s Despicable Deadpool #299 will be “the second-to-last skirmish in the saga of the DESPICABLE DEADPOOL,” according to the issue’s solicit. That means the series will have run just 14 bi-weekly issues since quasi-relaunching as part of Marvel Legacy. What will the Legacy of Marvel Legacy be? Potentially forgettable in the grand scheme of things, it would appear.

If Bleeding Cool is right — and tell us, when have we ever been wrong?! — that means the series will relaunch sans “Despicable” in June with a brand new #1 issue, though the Deadpool 2 movie release date has been moved up two weeks into May, spoiling that sweet, sweet synergy just a bit.

Maybe Marvel can push the reboot up two weeks as well? An early Marvel comic? Wouldn’t that be a joke worthy of the Merc with a Mouth?

Check out the solicits below:

DESPICABLE DEADPOOL #298
GERRY DUGGAN (W) • MIKE HAWTHORNE (A/C)
THE MARVEL UNIVERSE KILLS DEADPOOL Part 2
You like villains? Oh, we got villains. With a twenty-million-dollar bounty on Deadpool’s head, every no-good scumbag in the game is gonna be gunning for him. And after the year he’s had? That’s just the way he wants it.
32 PGS./Parental Advisory …$3.99

DESPICABLE DEADPOOL #299
GERRY DUGGAN (W) • MIKE HAWTHORNE (A/C)
THE MARVEL UNIVERSE KILLS DEADPOOL Part 3
It’s the second-to-last skirmish in the saga of the DESPICABLE DEADPOOL, and now it’s not just enemies after him, but everyone. Self-deprecation, self-defeat and self-destruction saddle up as Deadpool dives deeper into despicability! Plus, what are you gonna do, stop reading at #299?

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
