DeadpoolMarvel has announced plans for a five-part mini-series starring Deadpool. The first issue of Deadpool and The Mercs will be published in February 2016.

Writer Cullen Bunn and illustrator Salva Espin have been recruited to work on this project. Four artists, Declan Shalvey, John Tyler ChristopherMike Hawthorne, and Ron Lim, have signed on to create the main cover an action figure variant cover, a design variant cover, and a variant cover.

In an interview with IGN.com, Bunn explained that “this series spins right out of the main Deadpool book and the shenanigans Gerry Duggan is perpetrating over there. We’ve seen Deadpool hiring guys like Foolkiller, Terror, and Slapstick to run missions for him. This story focuses on that team in the thick of it and interacting with many Marvel characters. It just so happens that most of these characters want them dead.” (via The Hollywood Reporter)
