COMICS: New DEADPOOL Covers Feature The Merc With A Mouth Battling Undead Presidents
Another batch of Geoff Darrow and Tony Moore's Marvel NOW! covers for this October's new Deadpool series have been revealed, and series writers Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn also talk more about Wade Wilson's battles with undead United States Presidents.
Many thanks to CBR for the covers above. The site also has a lengthy interview with Deadpool writers Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn, and below are just a couple of quotes about the zombie Presidents that the Merc With A Mouth will be facing off against this Winter. Be sure to click on the link below to read the Q&A in full.
Gerry Duggan: Whatever your political lean is you'll be able to pick up the book. The presidents are back for a very specific reason; someone thought that they might be able to help the country now. Obviously that's not how it worked out because they are back and they're running amok, and the big guns of the Marvel Universe can't be seen taking them on. So this is a perfect opportunity for Deadpool to sort of rise to the top. So there are political jokes in there, but this is a book for everyone and in terms of tone Brian and I were raised on action comedies. We think "Ghostbusters" and "Big Trouble In Little China" are the places where some of this story comes from.
Brian Posehn: There's not going to be any point where you're going to go, "Oh. This was clearly written by two liberal pansies." [Laughs] Our politics will not come into it at all. Like Gerry said it's basically about this shortsighted character that's looking for a way to fix things. Everybody knows that our country is messed up, especially in this book. This character thinks the way to fix it is to bring these guys back. They're a little scary, but they're not brain dead like Romero zombies. They're dead versions of themselves. They talk the way they talked when they were alive. So some of these guys are straight up scary and some of them are clowns. Lincoln and Washington are going to have their crap together a little better than, say, zombie Reagan.
