It won’t surprise anyone that Marvel is pushing Deadpool hard this summer with a certain movie set to arrive in July. Case in point, the publisher announced earlier today at, that comic creator Rob Liefeld is finishing his work on Deadpool with his final blockbuster story in Deadpool Team-Up, a five-issue series launching in August.

Official press release below:

When you need some hired hands, Deadpool is your man! But when the Merc with a Mouth needs assistance, he’s got friends (and frenemies) from across the Marvel Universe! Witness Rob Liefeld weave an epic tale bringing Wade Wilson together with Major X, Crystar, Ghost-Spider, Wolverine, and the Incredible Hulk for the first time, as the return of a LOST MARVEL COMICS CHARACTER necessitates the ultimate team-up mission!

Speaking to, who shared an exclusive first look at the project, Liefeld said, “Everyone has that one comic with that obscure character that they always wanted more of. l, myself, have several of these and I pulled them from relative obscurity from the deepest corners of the Marvel Universe and placed them next to Deadpool, right at the center of an all new, cataclysmic adventure! This is some wonderfully weird stuff and I’m so excited to share it with the world. I promise you some familiar Marvel faces and take them to brand new places. Deadpool Team-Up is the most fun I’ve had in years! I’d like to thank C.B. Cebulski and Mark Basso for making this a great experience!”

Like all of Marvel’s major launches, DEADPOOL TEAM-UP #1 will have a special Foil Variant Cover, also drawn by Liefeld. Check both the main cover and foil cover now and preorder DEADPOOL TEAM-UP at your local comic shop! For more information, visit
