August really can be called “Deadpool Month” as this week brings us two new issues; the 59th issue of the merc with a mouth’s ongoing self named title, Deadpool, and the third issue of his mini series, Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe. Writer Daniel Way and artist Salva Espin keep bringing the laughs and continue “Blacklisted” with another one of Deadpool’s “rogues” villains making a return. The awesome cover (above left) is by Dave Johnson. Deadpool Kills is a fun What If? style of mini-series (except that it is much more violent and gory than those tales usually were). It comes to us from writer Cullen Bunn, artist Dalibor Talajic and cover artist Kaare Andrews.

What if everything you thought was funny about Deadpool…was actually just disturbing? What if he decided to kill everyone and everything that makes up the Marvel Universe? What if he actually pulled it off? Would that be FUN for you? The Merc with a Mouth takes a turn for the twisted in a weekly horror comic like no other…

Both issues hit stands on August 15th, 2012. In other Deadpool news, his ongoing title will be getting a reboot and restarting with a new #1 come November as part of Marvel NOW! (SEE: Marvel Now!
