Marvel Comics: The CB Cebulski Generation Begins!


#4642

There’s another Marvel partworks started in the UK, this one all-Deadpool.

http://deadpool.hachettepartworks.com/

I got the cheap first issue, which has Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe #1-4 and Deadpool Killustrated #1-4, both written by Cullen Bunn.

Some of the Deadpool runs are fairly continuity heavy, so I don’t know well Hachette’s randomly jump around strategy will work for people who plan to read them as they come out. I might pick up some of the Simone or Priest stuff that I haven’t read when they get to it.

The spine art is pretty cool at least:

Edit: That image shows 60 books, but the first one is #64, so…


#4643

That could be a pretty cheap investment actually


#4644

Actually 80 x 10 of stuff I already have is a little stupid


#4645

Wait, this is real and not a joke?


#4646

Yup real. And all completely out of order as is hatchets way


#4647

I am amazed there is that much published Deadpool material.


#4648

Understandable, they were publised after the 70s


#4649

Hold on, I’m not just amazed, I flat out don’t believe it. 80 books, each one containing 8 issues, that’s 640 issues for a character only created in 1991. That’s two comics every single month for an unbroken 27-year period.

Seriously?

Edit for a typo because I wrote 17 instead of 27 – the maths still works out at the same mind-boggling total.

This is what happens when a character is popular David.


#4651

There have been three new Deadpool comics published just since David’s last post.


#4652

Four.


#4653

I got into work, and there was a brand new 200-page original hardback starring Deadpool under my keyboard


#4654

But seriously, has anybody except @RonnieM bought all of them? :wink:


#4655

They’re replicating too fast for any one person to own them all.

At this rate, the world will collapse under the weight of Deadpool comics in about a week.


#4656

Joking aside, is Deadpool the most popular comics chararacter created since the 1930s? Superman and Batman have obviously sustained two titles a month for longer periods, but the only equivalent modern success I can think of is Wolverine, and I’m not sure if he’s consistently maintained that publishing rate (if you look at only solo titles).


#4657

Deadpool is insanely popular, based on a represntative sample of the level of merch my LCS sells, and the number of people I see wearing Deadpool T-shirts and other apparel in Dublin.


#4658

Since the 30s? Spiderman has done pretty well on that front.

I don’t think Deadpool has consistently had two titles every month, there are just periods where Marvel release like 6!


#4659

He does have two movies. By my reckoning that puts him below Iron Man (they probably both became really popular at a similar time, around 2008).

You can bring up Origins and say that he’s in three movies, but nobody will love you for it.


#4660

Didn’t Deadpool say the toy of him from Wolverine Origins was the best superhero ever in the first movie?


#4661

It’s kind of amazing, but yeah, it seems like there’s always 2-4 (a lot more on some periods) DP books each month, between on-goings, minis and specials…
