Rob Liefeld returned to his popular Marvel Comics creation Deadpool for Deadpool’s first ever original graphic novel Deadpool: Bad Blood, which released on Wednesday. Now Liefeld has made it official that this will not be his last time drawing the Merc with a Mouth and it will not be Deadpool’s last graphic novel.
Liefeld revealed on Instagram that he is already working on Deadpool: Bad Blood Vol. 2. The artwork Liefeld revealed suggests that Thumper, the new Deadpool enemy introduced in Deadpool: Bad Blood, will return for the sequel.
Deadpool: Bad Blood featured guest appearances by several of Liefeld’s other creations, including Cable, Domino, and X-Force. The artwork suggests that Cable will be back for more and that the X-Men’s Wolverine will also be making an appearance.
“Have I mentioned that I'm hard at work on Deadpool: Bad Blood vol. 2, BADDER BLOOD!!? Your response to Bad Blood has been overwhelming and we, Chad, Chris, Rom and myself are back at it on the sequel! 2018 can't get here fast enough as Deadpool's past and present continue to collide and the adventure continues,” Liefeld wrote on Instagram.

It is fitting that Wolverine will join the mix since, as Liefeld told ComicBook.com, Liefeld’s goal when he created Deadpool was to create the next Wolverine.
“All I was trying to do was create the next Wolverine,” Liefeld said. “Wolverine was my favorite character in the history of comics. When I encountered Wolverine, you have to understand I was eight, I bought the Hulk issue - #181 I think it is - off the stands, off the spinner rack. Who is this awesome new character? I loved the name, the look. When he popped up in X-Men, I flipped out. When [John] Byrne took over and they put greater emphasis on him. When he got his solo miniseries with [Frank] Miller.
Deadpool: Bad Blood is now on sale. Look for the sequel in 2018.
