COMICS: DEADPOOL’s ART OF WAR #1 Rewrites the Book on Warfare This October

That's right, we're getting yet another Deadpool comic book this Fall! Hit the jump for details on this new 4-issue mini-series from New York Times Bestselling writer Peter David (All-New X-Factor, The Incredible Hulk) and fan-favorite artist Scott Koblish.

It’s been called the definitive work on military strategy and tactics. Sun Tzu’s seminal Art of War has influenced warfare for hundreds of years. From the battlefield to business and beyond, there has never been a work of more import when it comes to strategy and preparation. Until now! Today, Marvel is proud to announce DEADPOOL’S ART OF WAR #1 – the first chapter in a new 4-issue mini-series from New York Times Bestselling writer Peter David (All-New X-Factor, The Incredible Hulk) and fan-favorite artist Scott Koblish (Deadpool)!

The Merc With a Mouth knows a thing or two about combat, and he’s gearing up to write his own version of Art of War. I mean, Sun Tzu didn’t even have laser guided missiles or an Incredible Hulk back then, so how accurate can his book on war really be? But it’ll take more than a great book if Deadpool wants to outsell the original. His plan? Cause enough chaos and war across the world that they’ll have to buy his book when it comes out! How’s that for strategy?

“[Deadpool’s] guided by the words of Sun Tzu and tries to apply the book’s thinking to the war he winds up starting as a result,” says writer Peter David, in an interview with “His results are, shall we say, mixed.”

Asgardians, Avengers, X-Men – you name it, Deadpool’s probably going to have some trouble with them when he tries to star the next world war. Prepare for the next step in military strategy when the chaotic mayhem begins in DEADPOOL’S ART OF WAR #1 this October!

"If your enemy offers more money, he just became your friend"- deadpool's art of war.

"If your side is losing, switch sides" -DP's art of war.

"If your enemy is hungry, offer him tacos, then kick him in the nuts."-DP's art of war.

pinocchio- its a very long and boring read, unless you can really truly equate it to something in your own life or experiences.

Can't believe how beautiful the japanse art is just to despict a dark humorous scene, that's how is done!

Actually It's Chinese.
Sun Tsu is from China

Oops, thanks, my bad.

@pinocchio That is not true at all. The original text only takes an afternoon to read and unless you happen to be a vegetable on life support it actually "equates" with one's life experiences quite may want to try reading it again (or for the first time : )

I remember wathing a doc on the History Channel on the Art of War and how the theory's in it came about.

This looks cool, I just hope they don't try and make Deadpool to silly and ruin it.

Sun Tzu's Art of War was the most tedious read.

You had me at Peter David.
marvel72 - 7/3/2014, 3:36 PM
could be a good read if peter david is writing it.

That is a beautiful cover.

That cover looks like something Hokusai would have painted, in a moment of amusement.
