Yes, you read the title right.
So cue the epic facepalms and eyerolls because Marvel Comics has announced, via Nerdist, that they will be killing him in Deadpool #250 due out on April 1, 2015. (Epic shade will be given if this is all an April Fool’s joke)
The staff putting together this book will feature Nick Giovanetti, Jason Mantzoukas, Gerry Duggan, Ben Blacker, Brian Posehn, and Mike Drucker, and art by Scott Koblish and Mike Hawthorne.
Anyone taking bets as to which will return first? Deadpool or Wolverine?
The solicitation is as follows:
DEADPOOL #250 (A.K.A. issue #45)
Written by GERRY DUGGAN, BRIAN POSEHN, BEN ACKER, BEN BLACKER, NICK GIOVANETTI, PAUL SCHEER, JASON MANTZOUKAS, MIKE DRUCKER, & MORE
Penciled by MIKE HAWTHORNE, SCOTT KOBLISH, & MORE
Cover by SCOTT KOBLISH
That’s right—if you add together all the Deadpool series (creatively) issue 45 is the big 250th issue of Deadpool! What better way to celebrate than to end the series? In our over-sized main story, ULTIMATUM comes at Deadpool for revenge, so he has no choice but to take them on—ALL OF THEM. Then, in an Infinity Gauntlet crossover, what would Deadpool do if he got the six gems from Thanos? Plus: a slew of stories showcasing Deadpool’s closest friends and allies by special guest writers! Also, SPOILER: Deadpool dies at the end of the issue.
