“The FF is a chance to radically remix and reinvent the familiar aspects of the Fantastic Four and the Future Foundation into something all new and wild,” explains Fraction. “Standing on its own but interlinked with Fantastic Four, the all-new FF will be doing things the Fantastic Four could only dream of before.”

“What — you didn’t actually think Reed would leave the Baxter Building unprotected during the Richards’ family’s epic road trip, did you?” said Axel Alonso, Editor In Chief, Marvel Entertainment.  “Someone’s got to guard the fort, and Reed’s handpicked replacement team — courtesy of Matt and Mike’s unique creative synergy – is truly fantastic in its own right.  Facing a relentless siege of villains with bones to pick, this team quickly realizes that the best defense against certain, uhm, Doom, is a good offense.”

 

Each issue of FF features special augmented reality content available exclusive through the Marvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.

This November, Wade Wilson gets into a whole world of trouble like you’ve never seen before in Deadpool #1, kicking off the all-new ongoing series from the blockbuster creative team of writers & comedians Brian Posehn (The Sara Silverman Program), Gerry Duggan (Attack of the Show!, Infinite Horizon) and superstar artist Tony Moore (The Walking Dead)!

Washington, D.C. is in turmoil when dead former U.S. Presidents – from George Washington to Gerald Ford – are resurrected and the heroes of the Marvel Universe can’t be the ones to stop them! There’s only one other person that has the reputation, skills, and plausible deniability to handle these com-monsters in chief…NOW! is the time for Deadpool! In Wade We Trust!

 

“Brian, Gerry & Tony are cooking up the most insane Deadpool story ever published,” said Axel Alonso, Editor In Chief, Marvel Entertainment.  “Heroes will be ingested, chimichangas will be digested, dead presidents will be resurrected as the Merc with the Mouth collides with a who’s who of Marvel Universe heroes, the world’s unluckiest S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, and the most downright nasty zombies Tony Moore has ever drawn.”

 

Marvel NOW! is the culmination of Marvel ReEvolution, the groundbreaking new initiative to evolve the comic book experience through innovation. With DeadpoolMarvel NOW! ensures fans will discover an entirely new perspective on the Merc with a Mouth.

 

“Deadpool is the scumbag we need. You don’t want to see the Avengers take on these cherished pillars of American history. It becomes a little more palatable when it’s Deadpool,” explained Duggan in an interview with Marvel.com. “He’s there strictly because SHIELD is giving him a pillowcase with a dollar sign on it filled with money.”

 

“All your favorite presidents fighting Deadpool, what’s not to like?” Posehn added.
