Wakanda and pure insanity are going to collide in Black Panther vs. Deadpool, a new limited series officially announced by Marvel. As reported by AIPT!, Black Panther vs. Deadpool will feature writer Daniel Kibblesmith and artist Ricardo Lopez Ortiz. Kibblesmith is known from his work on Lockjaw and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and Ortiz has worked on Hit-Girl and Civil War II: Kingpin.
Both Black Panther and Deadpool have recently starred in highly successful Hollywood films, and Black Panther vs Deadpool shows a continued effort by Marvel to capitolize on putting their famous characters together – something they’re doing much more literally with the Infinity Warp limited series.
“Featuring a brawl you can only get in comics (for now anyway), BLACK PANTHER VS. DEADPOOL is the best of both worlds, equal parts Black Panther/Wakanda and Deadpool/Crazytown,” said Editor Wil Moss. “In bouncing these two characters off each other (and sometimes through each other), Daniel and Ricardo have found some really fascinating insights into what makes them tick as individuals.”
