Deadpool Gets a Relaunch with Skottie Young and Nic Klein

Posted by March 6, 2018 Comment

The impending Fresh Start from Marvel was kicked off on Bleeding Cool in January by the news that Deadpool would be relaunching after Despicable Deadpool #300. May not June, though, we clearly miscounted.

Because it is.

Polygon has been rewarded for their takedowns of Marvel with a PR-arranged announcement of the new series, Deadpool by Skottie Young and Nic Klein. And they report that Deadpool was all that Skottie Young wanted.

“Before I pitched Rocket Raccoon back in 2013, I tried to get Deadpool. haha. But he was spoken for so I said ‘well, i can kind of have a similar vibe for Rocket, just cleaned up a bit.’ So my head was already in that place.”

While Nic Klein is looking to direct comedy…

“Visually – besides the over the top-of-it-all business, I like the Deadpool specific things (his theatric monologues and breaking the 4th wall stuff). Experimenting with pacing / specific camera shots/angles to get comedic effect are also fun things that I hope to get to do.“

Deadpool #1 will hit stands on May 2nd. Here’s the official solicit from Marvel, and a look at the full cover.

Skottie Young and Nic Klein bring you the craziest tales of the regeneratin’ degenerate yet! It’s been a while since Deadpool’s had to merc to make ends meet, but things are tough all over. WhileDeadpool tries to get his humble mercenary-for-hire business back off the ground, a catastrophic threat so unfathomably huge, so mind-breakingly cataclysmic it defies description, is heading towards Earth, and there’s only ONE PERSON WHO CAN STOP IT!!!

Oh no, wait, it’s…it’s not Wade, is it?

Oh, ☠☠☠☠. It’s Wade.
