Marvel has announced a new five-issue limited miniseries featuring their famously unpredictable Merc with a Mouth: Deadpool. However, this isn’t Marvel’s standard comic, but a playable interactive adventure in which the reader controls Deadpool’s story, rolling dice, making decisions and getting into fights as you travel through time in a whirlwind adventure.
“YOU ARE DEADPOOL is a five-part adventure gamebook in the classic tradition of Fighting Fantasy, Lone Wolf, and Diceman—where you (and the cut-out-and-keep Deadpool Die) control the action! Every week brings a complete single-player adventure—where you encounter glamorous guest-stars like Hulk, Ghost Rider, Grasshopper, Daredevil, and another Grasshopper—that form an epic quest the like of which you’ve never seen, unless you have!” teases series writer Al Ewing. “And there’s more! Fight end-of-level bosses! Manage your inventory by stealing background objects! Explore five different time zones in nearly any order! Play the tutorial level! Enjoy unique minigames about bar fights, beat poetry, and sneaking through levels! Laugh! Cry! Cheat! It’s all waiting for you—because YOU ARE DEADPOOL!”
Written by Al Ewing with art by Salva Espin (issues 1, 3 & 5) and Paco Diaz (issues 2 & 4), YOU ARE DEADPOOL releases in May. Visit the Marvel website to learn more about this unique interactive comic.
