Kaare Andrews’ awesome covers for Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe.
CBR: Jordan, you’ve got a writer who is very adept at writing horror characters and stories and a situation that sounds pretty horrific. So is “Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe” a horror comic?
White: Hell yes, it is! I’m a big horror movie fan, and have only just recently finished re-watching all the “Friday the 13th” and “Nightmare on Elm Street” movies, and am now jumping back into the “Halloween” series. When you think about it, isn’t Wade Wilson right at home in the lineup of Jason Voorhees, Freddy Kruger and Michael Myers? He’s sort of Freddy’s corny jokes and speed in Jason’s ever-healing body, am I right?
Bunn: Exactly! When I pitched my version of Deadpool for this story, I said he was Freddy-meets-Jason-meets-Jigsaw — if those guys had ninja-like assassination skills. This is a dark story, but it’s the kind of horror story that’ll make you laugh uncomfortably at all the blood, violence and menace. I know that deep down you are a sick, sick person, and this story is for you!
I wonder if Mark Millar wasn’t so busy with his creator-owned stuff, would he have jumped on this? Anyway, this oughta be fun. I don’t need it to be “good” in a qualitative way. Just fun.
I often worry about how people see this character. When it is all wrong. But I am intrigued by this series.
