In June, DC began running half-page ads sharing a page with actual comic panels -- and now Marvel's Deadpool is setting his sights on them.

Marvel has revealed a new "Candy" variant cover by Dave Johnson to November's Deadpool #1 with Wade Wilson and Rhino locked in battle before being interrupted by a faux ad for a protein bar called "Exxxplodo!".

Marvel just announced a special "sketch" variant of Johnson's cover which will be ultra rare -- one copy for every 4,999 ordered by retailers. That might seem odd, but 4,999 is coincidentally one copy shy of the orders needed to get a Jim Lee sketch variant to Dark Knight III: The Master Race, also releasing in November.
