A perfect entry point for new fans and longtime readers alike, it’s a case of mistaken identity when Wade Wilson, the regeneratin’ degenerate you know as DEADPOOL, kills an American superspy on a mission to stop the deadly terrorist agency called GORGON! Now, it’s up to Wade to complete his victim’s mission as only he can – with excessive violence, an accelerated healing factor, and maybe, just maybe, a few laughs along the way.
“Deadpool is one of the most darkly comedic anti-heroes out there, and I’m so excited for fans to see him portray a spy in this new digital comic series,” said Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content. “With buzz over Deadpool still resounding, you won’t want to miss reading his next adventure!”
