A Beginner’s Guide To Read Deadpool Comics For Those Who Love The Marvel Movie
Deadpool made his first appearance in February 1991 edition of The New Mutants #98. He was the anti-hero created by Marvel. The audience, however, was floored by his wit and humor, in turn, promoting him to a hero with his own series.
Born as Wade Wilson, his alter-ego is crazy AF, to say the least. A rebel and sometimes without a cause, the origins of Deadpool is intriguing to learn and that is an understatement because the guy is messed up. He has some really fun partnerships with other Marvel characters as well! Most iconic being the bromance between Spiderman and his nemesis Cable.
If you were first introduced to Deadpool with the 2016 film starring Ryan Reynolds, you might want to read the comics as well. There are tons of comics featuring Wade Wilson, but wondering which to get your hands on first?
Here is a guide just for that.
1. Deadpool by Daniel Way: The Complete Collection, Volume 1,2
The Daniel Way run of Deadpool is considered as most comprehensive in terms of character arch. The series includes 69 issues and it is more graphic in terms of violence and humor. It also represents Deadpool in the truest sense.
2. Cable & Deadpool #1- 50 – Fabien Nicieza, Mark Brooks
If you love reading a good cop, bad cop series, this should definitely tide you through hours of entertainment. In this series, Deadpool teams up with duh, Cable. It is popular among the fans since it studies the dynamics of the duo. Plus, it is funny AF.
3. Spider-man/Deadpool – Joe Kelly, Ed McGinnis
Most fans just adore this series. Another one by Joe Kelly, this is the one series you cannot miss. It has an entertaining bromance going on with Spiderman and Deadpool. They do get on like a house on fire, sometimes quite literally.
4. Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe – Cullen Bunn, Dalibor Talajić
Okay, so this series is not an absolute necessity to get to know the character. But if you like pointless action involving other Marvel characters with a bit of humor, this is a good read. If pure violence is your thing, you might just like this one.
5. Wolverine Origins #21-25
Deadpool makes an appearance in these issues of Wolverine Origins. If you’ve always been curious about Deadpool’s hatred for Wolverine, grab these. It digs in deep into his psyche.
6. Deadpool Killustrated #1- 4
Continuing from the same trope as Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, this time Deadpool is hell-bent on killing iconic literary characters. This mini-series is a whole lot of fun if you enjoy your classics.
I think six is a pretty even number to get started. If you are already a big Deadpool comics fan, leave us a comment, why dontcha.
