Deadpool 1-6, (“Dead Presidents” story arc)
Written by: Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan
Drawn by: Tony Moore
Deadpool has a storied past as a character in the vast Marvel comics universe. Created by Rob Liefeld during the artist boom of the early 1990’s, Deadpool was introduced as a villain, but by the late 90’s had shifted into the role of an anti hero. Since then, Deadpool has evolved into a quiet satire of the popularity of such anti heroes in comics, cracking jokes and regularly breaking the fourth wall to comment directly to the readers (Ferris Bueller style).
