The Press Release:
It’s been called the definitive work on military strategy and tactics. Sun Tzu’s seminal Art of War has influenced warfare for hundreds of years. From the battlefield to business and beyond, there has never been a work of more import when it comes to strategy and preparation. Until now! Today, Marvel is proud to announce DEADPOOL’S ART OF WAR #1 – the first chapter in a new 4-issue mini-series from New York Times Bestselling writer Peter David (All-New X-Factor, The Incredible Hulk) and fan-favorite artist Scott Koblish (Deadpool)!
The Merc With a Mouth knows a thing or two about combat, and he’s gearing up to write his own version of Art of War. I mean, Sun Tzu didn’t even have laser guided missiles or an Incredible Hulk back then, so how accurate can his book on war really be? But it’ll take more than a great book if Deadpool wants to outsell the original. His plan? Cause enough chaos and war across the world that they’ll have to buy his book when it comes out! How’s that for strategy?
“[Deadpool’s] guided by the words of Sun Tzu and tries to apply the book’s thinking to the war he winds up starting as a result,” says writer Peter David, in an interview with Marvel.com. “His results are, shall we say, mixed.”
Asgardians, Avengers, X-Men – you name it, Deadpool’s probably going to have some trouble with them when he tries to star the next world war. Prepare for the next step in military strategy when the chaotic mayhem begins in DEADPOOL’S ART OF WAR #1 this October!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Based on the creative team involved and my overall appreciation of the “Deadpool” character I can say that I am extremely interested in this mini-series. That said, I might end up waiting on a collected edition since this will only span four issues and since I’ve already got a lot of comic book boxes to deal with I prefer the limited series in that fashion. Let’s see how I feel come October though when I see it on the racks. What about you readers? Are you stoked for this one? You can chime in down below in the comments section as its always nice to hear from you on such things. See you next time.
