Fear Itself: Deadpool
So, for anyone that doesn't know, I'm a bit of a Deadpool fanboy. I've been reading the various Deadpool comics for years, and since I'm a broke college student I can't say that I have all the physical issues, but I DO have everything he's apeared in in .CBR format. (.CBR is a file extion for digital comic books....You can read CBR and CBZ files with a number of programs. Personally, I use ComicRack.)
Another comic that I enjoy reading is the webcomic The Adventures of Dr. McNinja. As if the name didn't give it away, the main character is both a doctor, and a ninja. There's also a gorilla secretary, raptors, giant lumberjacks, chainsaw-nunchucks, zombies, a robotic Dracula, et cetera, et cetera. Oh, and if you're keeping track of all the awesome, for a while, at least, the woman that does the coloring for The Venture Brothers also colored Dr. McNinja.
Well, Marvel announced today that Christopher Hastings (The writer of Dr. Mcninja.) will be writing a new Deadpool limited series called Fear Itself. While I have mixed feelings about 9,001 different Deadpool series being launched in the past couple of years, this is one that I simply can't wait for.
