Marvel Comics News Digest 6/5 – 6/9/17 Featuring Deadpool Kills Marvel Universe

Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe Again – and No One Is Safe!
Your first look at the new series by Cullen Bunn and Dalibor Talajic

 

New York, NY—June 6, 2017—If you’re Deadpool and you kill the entire Marvel Universe, why not eat some chimichangas…and then kill all over again? Proving there’s nothing like revenge, the superstar team of Cullen Bunn (X-Men Blue, Venomverse) and Dalibor Talajic (Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe, Redwolf) reunite to bring you Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe Again, and the Merc with the Mouth has never been more ready to return to that katana.

 

“This is not a sequel to the original story,” warns series writer Cullen Bunn. “This is an all new murderous rampage. The Marvel Universe has changed a great deal since the first series. So, of course, Deadpool had to up his game and change his tactics.”

 

How so? “Deadpool is pulling out all the stops on this killing spree,” continues Bunn. “In the second issue of the original series, he killed Spider-Man. In the second issue of this series, he goes after the entire Spider-Man family. And that’s not all. Good ol’ Wade is approaching these kills in all new ways, and he’s going after huge targets. How does Deadpool kill an entire pantheon of mythic beings? You’ll find out in the first issue. And that’s just the beginning of the carnage.”

 

Of course, if you’re Wade Wilson, it doesn’t mean things are going to be easy – especially when you’re on a mission to kill the X-Men, the Avengers, Gwenpool, Spider-Man, and more! You’re not going to want to miss this all-new five-issue series, Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe Again, hitting comic shops this July!
