Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe… AGAIN!?

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.

Unholy Grail – Coming from Aftershock!

I’m excited to announce a new series from AfterShock Comics. In July, artist Mirko Colak and I will be launching an Arthurian horror tail titled Unholy Grail.

Arthur Pendragon was the king of all Britain. His story is legendary. Merlin. The Lady of the Lake. Excalibur. Camelot. The Knights of the Round Table. But these stories are bright lies painted over the truth. Here is presented the gospel of Arthur’s bloody rise to power and his unholy reign. The legend of King Arthur is not the stuff of legends, but the fuel of nightmares.

As Arthur descends into darkness, is there any lingering hope that he still might do something good?

I’ve been fascinated by Arthurian legends since I discovered T. H. White’s ‘The Once and Future King’ as a kid. From that point on, I wanted to explore every variation of the story, from Thomas Malory’s work to the movie ‘Excalibur’ to the comic ‘Camelot 3000.’ One of the things that intrigued me was how there are so many interpretations of the epic — as should be the case with all great myths — and so many different takes on the story. At some point, years ago, I started to wonder what the Arthurian legend might look like if they were written as a horror story. I thought about it so much, I guess, that I started dreaming about it. I woke from one of those dreams and scribbled the sentence ‘The demon, who had no name in his own tongue, but would come to be called Merlin by mortals, uncoiled its serpentine body and slithered out of the shadows.’ That was over 20 years ago, but I still have the notebook where I first pondered the concept.

The series features lettering from Simon Bowland and the first issue features covers by Colak and Francesco Francavilla.

And here’s some awesome preview art from the first issue!
