Not a joke…. not an imaginary story… except of course it is…
I’m excited to announce that artist Dalibor Talajic and I are working together on another bloody masterpiece, this one titled… DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE AGAIN – an all-new 5-issue series!
Remember the time Deadpool went a little TOO crazy and killed the entire Marvel Universe? Well, this isn’t that. This is a DIFFERENT time Deadpool went a little too crazy and killed the entire Marvel Universe. So strap in, because the Merc With a Mouth is taking out all of your favorites in the most horrific ways possible. Heroes. Villains. It doesn’t matter to Deadpool one bit! But trust us, it’s going to hurt him more than it hurts you…and you’re going to love it!
The carnage and the mayhem kick off this July. Be there for a murderous rampage unlike any other, when DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE AGAIN – coming to your local comic shops and on digital devices everywhere!
And here’s a little interview I did about the series. See if you can figure out the big mystery around this one.
Final Order Cutoffs for REGRESSION, my first Image Comics series, are due on MONDAY! That means you need to call or visit your local comic shop and tell them you would like to pre-order the first issue. I know, everyone has a different opinion about pre-ordering. A lot of folks hate the very idea of it. Let me tell you, though, pre-ordering is vital to the survival of a comic. There are so many great books out there that it is tough for retailers to order everything their customers might want. By pre-ordering, you can be sure you get the book you’re after and your retailer can feel more comfortable with the books they are bringing into the store.
“Bunn, Luckert, and Enger have created a real page-turner, frightening, engrossing, and clever. A must-read for horror fans.” – Steve Niles, Writer of 30 Days of Night and Winnebago Graveyard.
“I have read Cullen Bunn’s upcoming series REGRESSION and it is creepy, disgusting and awesome. Just like Cullen.” – Jeff Lemire, Writer of Black Hammer and Descender.
“This comic leaves you with one massive cliffhanger that will have you count down the days until you can get your hands on the next issue. It is that good, that scary and that intriguing.” – Outright Geekery
Ten years ago, Brian Hurtt and I released our first comic together. The Damned was a five-issue limited series of gangsters, tommy guns, and demons. We followed that series with The Damned: Prodigal Sons, a three-issue story. While the first five issues were collected, the follow-up was never released as a trade. Now, after a decade, Brian and I are returning to the prohibition-era world that started it all, and we’ll be joined by our collaborator on The Sixth Gun, Bill Crabtree! This time around, the book will be ongoing and in-color!
From the announcement:
During prohibition, gangsters grew rich on our vices, and rivalries between criminal organizations resulted in open war. But unknown to the masses, a more sinister power controlled the crime cartels, using greed, gluttony, lust and other sins to fuel a more lucrative trade: mortal souls. Enter Eddie, a mortal who lost his soul long ago. Caught in the middle of competing demonic families, any other human would’ve gotten the ax long ago. But Eddie’s got a special talent that keeps him on his feet. One man’s curse is another man’s gift. The Damned is hard-boiled noir with demons, and the team behind The Sixth Gun is bringing it back with new colors, a new format, and a new ongoing tale of tommy guns and hellfire.
The MONSTERS UNLEASHED event series is just getting underway (with issue 2 coming out this week) but it has been announced that I will be writing an ongoing series featuring the new character Kid Kaiju, famed monster hunter Elsa Bloodstone, and a team of giant monsters taking on the most gigantic threats the Marvel Universe has to offer! With art by David Baldeon, this one is going to be a lot of fun for fans who want something completely new in their superhero books!
Giant monsters have been reintroduced to the Marvel Universe, and after the events of the Monsters Unleashed limited series, the movers and shakers of Marvel’s hero community simply must take these behemoths seriously as a threat. With that in mind, Kei Kawade and a small group of new kaiju have been tasked with combating giant threats that surface all over the world.
From their hidden island base, Kei and a group of powerful monsters are on call, ready to face these gargantuan Leviathans wherever they may rise.
This is a series firmly rooted in the Marvel Universe. Kei, Elsa, and company will be interacting with a number of Marvel heroes, and they’ll be encountering some extremely powerful, extremely dangerous villains in addition to the giant monsters they must face.
I’ve done a number of interviews about the book, so check them out!
