Last year, Marvel gave Deadpool a “fresh start” with a new series by Skottie Young and artist Nick Klein. However, there’s a new team coming on to the book, and Marvel isn’t skipping a chance to relaunch the series.
Via Marvel’s official YouTube channel, the publisher announced that Kelly Thompson (Mr. and Mrs. X, Rogue & Gambit, Captain Marvel) is teaming up with artist Chris Bachelo (The Sandman, Uncanny X-Men, Generation X) for Deadpool. Thompson quickly confirmed the news on her twitter account.
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! I’m writing the new #Deadpool ongoing. It begins in November. The art is by the absolutely incredible Chris Bachalo @ShadeX6 – which is two dream come trues for me in one shot! https://t.co/TDccDhx5W6 pic.twitter.com/3lVDyDc1UC

Here’s the official description from Marvel: “Deadpool’s newest mercenary job has him going after the King of Monsters, who has claimed a new kingdom for his monstrous subjects…on Staten Island! But you know what they say, when you come at the king, you better not miss! The Merc with a Mouth finds himself neck deep in political intrigue, monster law, and a monster hunter out for blood! It’s like The Crown but with even more swords and monsters! Can Deadpool’s smooth charisma and deft diplomacy allow him to keep his head, or will he be royally screwed?”
Deadpool #1 will hit comic book stores in November.
