They grow up so fast, don’t they? First they’re crawling around, playing with knifes and the next they’re blowing things up in major motion pictures. Deadpool, everyone’s favorite Merc with a Mouth is turning 30 and Marvel Comics is celebrating with a line of 30 variant covers from the character’s co-creator, Rob Liefeld along with a giant-sized special issue of classic Deadpool creators exploring Wade Wilson’s past, present, and future called Deadpool Nerdy 30 #1.
“When the opportunity to illustrate 30 variant covers commemorating Deadpool’s 30th anniversary came up, I literally jumped at the chance! I went over a quick checklist with the Marvel brass and I think we’ve picked a great array of Marvel’s biggest and brightest stars to pair with the Mighty Merc over 30 unique covers!” Liefeld said. “It’s giving me a chance to draw Deadpool with Marvel stars I’ve never drawn before, like Miles Morales and Silver Surfer! This is going to be grand, I hope the fans enjoy this special event, it’s a blast putting it all together!”
