FIRST LOOK: Deadpool rewrites the book on Warfare

July 1st, 2014 by Marc Comments


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 “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!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
