Cullen Bunn and Mark Bagley target "Deadpool: Assassin" miniseries this June

Deadpool has become one of Marvel's most popular characters over the past few decades.  The "merc with a mouth" can do things few other comic characters can, like break the fourth wall and send up superhero tropes while still maintaining an affection for the genre.  He's had his own incredibly popular film and has been the driving force behind newfound appreciation for both Bea Arthur and chimichangas.

But let's not forget that, underneath it all, Wade Wilson is still an assassin. Writer Cullen Bunn and artist Mark Bagley plan to capitalize on that with the forthcoming miniseries Deadpool: Assassin,  which they promise will be a "wild, fantastic, bloody ride."

Head on over to the Marvel blog for more details. 

Deadpool: Assassin #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers this June.
