Get 10 Best Deadpool Stories For $10!

Marvel 'True Believers' Releases 10 issues in January 2016

This is one of the best deals that comics companies could offer, and it bothers me that they don’t do it more often — Marvel in particular, considering how expensive some of their trade paperbacks can be. I liked it when they gathered up the original Rocket Raccoon stories for only $8 in a comic book. Let’s train a new set of readers to be what we were once — just readers, enjoyers of comics, before it all became about what it could turn around for on eBay.

Marvel has selected ten high points — your mileage may vary — from the multitude of Deadpool appearances in the last two decades. The reprint of New Mutants #98 – Deadpool’s first appearance — may be an adjustment as the pieces of the character are there, but it’s not the Deadpool that sells merchandise like crazy at Hot Topic. They’re all a different kind of fun, with my personal favorite being “The Groovy Deadpool.” But be warned: that one will get you hooked on Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn’s run, and you’ll end up buying the trade paperbacks.

Maybe this is an evil plan after all.

From Marvel:

This January, the “Merc With a Mouth” becomes the “Merc For a Buck” as Deadpool joins the True Believers family!
