It’s February, and I can already feel the excitement in the air over that oh-so-special day coming up in a couple weeks!
Well, I guess maybe some people get excited about that sort of thing, but I’m talking about something really important – the premiere of Deadpool’s very own movie!!!!!
OK, for those of you who still insist that Valentine’s Day is important, here’s a compromise I think we can all agree on:
Anyway, for those of you that know me (or have glanced at my list of comics), you know that I LOVE Deadpool like I love no other character, so I don’t think that words can accurately describe my excitement over this upcoming movie.
So in celebration of this momentous event, I’ve decided to post ads from Deadpool #1 for the next couple weeks, in anticipation of the movie.
“But, which Deadpool #1? There’ve been lots!”
Ah, so true. By my count, so far there have been six different comics that could all be considered “Deadpool #1” – released in 1993, 1994, 1997, 2008, 2013, and 2016. And that’s not even counting stuff like Deadpool Corps, Deadpool: Merc With a Mouth, or Mrs. Deadpool and the Howling Commandos (yes, really)! Any way you look at it, that’s a whole lotta DP! (Hey, why are there suddenly a bunch of porn enthusiasts here? Oooh, wait, I get it now!)
Anyway, I’m going with the one that I consider to be the most legitimate claim to Deadpool #1, the one from 1997, the first issue of his first ongoing series.
So what was the first ad in this issue? It’s for The Incredible Hulk: Pantheon Saga – a video game.
It’s a powerful punch to welcome you to the excitement about to unfold on the following pages!
