Now I know this is just a comic, but if you look at from another angle, Marvel took two of their highest grossing Box Office characters from 2018 and put them in a book together. That only makes sense, right? I know full well this story has been in the works for a while (writing and drawing do take a lot of time), that being said, I want to read this book. Characters of this nature meeting feels like a good fit for a great story. What are your thoughts, Junkies? #AFJ4LIFE
Press Release: Deadpool has gone up against almost everyone in the Marvel Universe…and now, that roster includes the legendary Black Panther in BLACK PANTHER VS. DEADPOOL, a new story from Lockjaw and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert writer Daniel Kibblesmith and artist Ricardo Lopez Ortiz (Hit-Girl, Civil War II: Kingpin).
For a reason he’d rather not disclose (because, well, it makes him look bad!) Deadpool needs a piece of Vibranium…and the only way to get Vibranium is to go through the Black Panther himself! But Deadpool soon learns that his unconventional methods don’t exactly work against the king of the most technologically advanced country on the planet…
“Featuring a brawl you can only get in comics (for now anyway), BLACK PANTHER VS. DEADPOOL is the best of both worlds, equal parts Black Panther/Wakanda and Deadpool/Crazytown,” said Editor Wil Moss. “In bouncing these two characters off each other (and sometimes through each other), Daniel and Ricardo have found some really fascinating insights into what makes them tick as individuals.”
Don’t miss the throw-down of the century when BLACK PANTHER VS. DEADPOOL comes to comic shops this October!
