The April 8th, 2015 debut of Deadpool #45 is an important one as it marks the 250th issue of the character across his series, and Marvel is set to celebrate it in a rather fun form by killing him off. The release comes with an array of writers and artists working on it, as well as some variant covers, which you can see below:
“First, Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn and Mike Hawthorne serve up a 30-page main story, as the villainous Ultimatum finally makes their move. They’re coming for Deadpool – every last one of them! It’s going to be a bloodbath, but Wade’s going to go down swinging.
Then – Gerry, Brian and Scott Koblish bring you a long lost, full length Deadpool tale. Remember when Wade got a hold of the Infinity Gauntlet? No? Don’t worry – that’s what the story is for. And yes, you should be worried Wade Wilson is in possession of nigh-infinite cosmic power. First order of business? Summon the entire Marvel Universe for the ROAST OF DEADPOOL!
Finally, a killer (see what we did there?) line-up of celebrities, comedians and friends of ol’ Wade as they pay tribute to the Merc With a Mouth. Say goodbye alongside Paul Scheer, Nick Giovannetti, Scott Aukerman, Ben Acker, Ben Blacker, Jason Mantzoukas, Mike Drucker and more!
Wade will soon be gone, but never forgotten! Especially as he’s poised to make such a grand exit. And you can be there for the ride. No fan can afford to miss the massive 250th issue this April when DEADPOOL #45 comes to stores this April!”
