There’s no denying that Deadpool is currently one of Marvel’s hottest commodities. With a highly successful movie under the Merc with a Mouth’s belt and a sequel in the works, it only makes sense that the House of Ideas have the popular anti-hero headline more than just one comic book.
When issue #28 arrives, writer Gerry Duggan and artist Salva Espin will be the ones to kickoff the “’Til Death Do Us…” six-issue crossover also set to involve Spider-Man/Deadpool and Deadpool & the Mercs for Money.
It’s inevitable that most of us settle down and tie the knot at some point, but it’s not every day that someone exchanges vows with a demon succubus. Well, Wade Wilson isn’t the average person, so seeing him go through with something such as that doesn’t surprise us too much. »

This past Saturday I participated in the Women’s March in NYC. While I marched with a group of burlesque performers and friends, other columnists here at ComicMix participated including Molly Jackson and Martha Thomases. It was an important moment of demonstration for the first days of the new administration here, and I’m glad I participated. For all of those reading who want to do something and were unable to attend I can assure you there will be plenty more opportunities to come.
Meanwhile, in my free time I’ve been reading some of the DC Comics Elseworlds. For those of you unfamiliar, these were stories that took place outside of DC Comics continuity that often involve alternate histories of what could have been. As you can imagine, that premise is really intriguing to me lately.
I’ve read four Elseworlds in the past couple of weeks, all of which were ones starring Superman. »

Duke Red is a paramilitary leader with ties to the government and a plan to create the most perfect robot of all, in the image of his deceased daughter, Tima. Furthermore, he has just erected a massive skyscraper called the Ziggurat, which he claims »

In an interview with Peter Bogdanovich shortly before his death in 1976, Fritz Lang said of Metropolis, “You cannot make a social-conscious picture in which you say that the intermediary between the hand and the brain is the heart. I mean, that's a fairy tale – definitely. But I was very interested in machines. Anyway, I didn't like the picture – thought it was silly and stupid – then, when I saw the astronauts: what else are they but part of a machine? It's very hard to talk about pictures - should I say now that I like Metropolis because something I have seen in my imagination comes true, when I detested it after it was finished?”
