Preview: DEADPOOL ANNUAL #1 – Acts Of Evil With A Twist

DEADPOOL ANNUAL #1 hits your local comic book store on August 21, but thanks to Marvel Comics, Monkeys Fighting Robots has an exclusive four-page preview.

DEADPOOL ANNUAL #1 is written by Dana Schwartz, with art by Reilly Brown, Aaron Kuder is the cover artist, Nelson DeCastro & Craig Yeung inked the book, Matt Herms with Guru-eFX are the color artists, and Joe Sabino lettered the pages.

About the issue:
ACTS OF EVIL! Eight-year-old Peter Quincy is willing to pay seven dollars to the person who can kill his bad dreams, and the Merc with a Mouth is on the case! But if Deadpool wants to earn that sweet, sweet paper, he’s going to have to throw down with Nightmare himself!


If you are a podcast nerd you know Schwartz as the host and creator of the podcast Noble Blood.

Schwartz is a fresh voice for Marvel as she’s written for Entertainment Weekly The New Yorker, The Guardian, The New York Observer, Marie Claire, Glamour, Mic, GQ, VICE, and others according to her website.

Schwartz could be a perfect fit for Deadpool as she’s created a parody Twitter account called @GuyInYourMFA based on the people she’s encountered in fiction workshops, and another one called @DystopianYA about the tropes in all of the young adult fiction books she’s read.

With Schwartz as the writer, are you more excited for the DEADPOOL ANNUAL? Comment below with your thoughts.


Deadpool (Wade Winston Wilson) was created by writer Fabian Nicieza and artist/writer Rob Liefeld, the character first appeared in The New Mutants #98 (cover-dated February 1991).
