Black Panther and Deadpool go head to head in new five issue miniseries
They're two of the most popular comic characters in the world: Black Panther, the stoic, noble ruler of the nation of Wakanda; and Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth, a post-modern antihero who's really into chimichangas.
They're stars of acclaimed films that have charmed critics audiences alike.
They are T'Challa and Wade Wilson, and this fall, they will go head to head in a new five issue miniseries.
I... really don't have anything more to add. It's such a bizarre pairing that I've no doubt it will be successful. Check out the details below.
Black Panther Faces Off Against…Deadpool?!
Black Panther vs. Deadpool comes to comic shops this October!
New York, NY—July 6, 2018—Deadpool has gone up against almost everyone in the Marvel Universe…and now, that roster includes the legendary Black Panther in BLACK PANTHER VS. DEADPOOL, a new story from Lockjaw and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert writer Daniel Kibblesmith and artist Ricardo Lopez Ortiz (Hit-Girl, Civil War II: Kingpin).
For a reason he’d rather not disclose (because, well, it makes him look bad!) Deadpool needs a piece of Vibranium…and the only way to get Vibranium is to go through the Black Panther himself! But Deadpool soon learns that his unconventional methods don’t exactly work against the king of the most technologically advanced country on the planet…
“Featuring a brawl you can only get in comics (for now anyway), BLACK PANTHER VS. DEADPOOL is the best of both worlds, equal parts Black Panther/Wakanda and Deadpool/Crazytown,” said Editor Wil Moss. “In bouncing these two characters off each other (and sometimes through each other), Daniel and Ricardo have found some really fascinating insights into what makes them tick as individuals.”
Black Panther vs. Deadpool #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on October 3.
