Let the quips and thwips begin.
At Marvel’s Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends’ panel at San Diego Comic-Con today, the publisher announced Spider-Man/Deadpool, a new ongoing series starring The Amazing Spider-Man and Wade Wilson.
But the legendary team-up extends to the other side of the page, as the veteran Deadpool team of Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness will reunite for the title. Kelly and McGuiness shared a lengthy and formative run on Deadpool in the early nineties, shaping Deadpool into the character audiences know today.
In the new series, Marvel promises that Deadpool will annoy the heck out of Spider-Man, while the wall-crawler will do his best to avoid any and all advances from the Merc with a Mouth. That said, both characters are known for their smart-talking, wise-cracking approach to crime-fighting. It would be difficult to imagine that the book wouldn't be laced with plenty of humor.
While a concrete release date was not given, Spider-Man/Deadpool #1 is set to premiere this fall.
Are you excited to see Kelly and McGuinness back on Deadpool, and with Spider-Man in tow? Let us know in the comments.
