Two of Marvel’s most popular and least killable characters will collide in a new miniseries this fall.
Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan continues Marvel’s “Deadpool vs.” tradition with writer Declan Shalvey (Deadpool, Moon Knight) and Mike Henderson (Secret Wars: Battleworld) teaming Marvel’s most irritable X-Man with the Merc with the Mouth.
"Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan has everything I've wanted to see in either a Deadpool
In Deadpool Vs. Old Man Logan, Logan is on the trailer of a newly discovered Omega-level mutant. When he turns down Deadpool’s offer to help, Deadpool “vows to outmatch his newly marked enemy for the entirety of their mission.”
“Importantly, the book features Old Man Logan though, not Wolverine,” said Shalvey. “That character has a different kind of baggage than old-school Logan, which makes him relate to Wade Wilson more than one might think. The characters have a lot in common, so having a book featuring both really makes sense, but they are clearly very different personalities, that's been a great thing to play with.”
“Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan is a not so buddy-buddy buddy comedy with all the bickering, explosions and stabbing you'd expect from a comic starring Deadpool and Logan as they both race to do their version of the right thing by a young mutant,” said artist Mike Henderson. “Declan has written this flaming runaway train of an action script that feels like drawing a Jason Statham movie and Lee Loughridge is bringing the heat on colors. So anyone who wouldn't mind seeing our two heroes cut their way through some faceless corporate jackboots won't want to miss it because it's been crazy fun to draw.”
“Seeing Mike Henderson draw this book is a revelation,” added Shalvey. “I've been a fan of his for a while, but I think this is the book that's going to turn a lot of heads and see just what Mike is truly capable of.”
