Deadpool and Black Panther are both box office royalty - but now they're coming together on the page in Black Panther vs. Deadpool, a five-issue limited series from writer Daniel Kibblesmith and artist Ricardo Lopez Ortiz launching in October.
The pair will clash over - what else? - some Vibranium. Black Panther's got plenty of the ultra-rare metal laying around in Wakanda, and Deadpool, for undisclosed potentially embarassing reasons, needs to get his hands on some.
“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.”
Here's the solicitation information for the first issue, along with the cover:
