Famed magician, comedian, and author Penn Jillette will be writing a guest issue of Spider-Man/Deadpool, as recently appeared in the latest episode of the the This Week In Marvel podcast. Jillette appeared on the podcast, and talked about the issue which will feature himself and long-time partner Teller teaming up with Spider-Man and Deadpool. The issue will be drawn by Scott Koblish.
"I had to mull it over for like 2 or 3 seconds," he joked. "I mean, what book could be more exciting?...Of all the characters in comic books, it doesn't get better than Deadpool and Spider-Man. It's a dream come true for a lot of things."
The magician also joked about signing over the rights to his own likeness to ensure that he remains a mainstay of the Marvel Universe.
Jillette has previously written comic books, including stories in both Detective Comics and Dark Horse Presents.
Jillette's story will appear in Spider-Man/Deadpool #11, scheduled to be released in November.
