In ‘Deadpool: Badder Blood’ The Merc With A Mouth Again Faces Off Against The Diabolical Thumper

Share This Post

This June, medium talent artist Rob Liefeld is back with another action-packed saga starring one of his only creations people actually like in Deadpool: Badder Blood! A sequel to Liefeld’s Deadpool: Bad Blood, Deadpool: Badder Blood will be a five-issue limited series that will deliver another definitive Deadpool adventure in iconic Liefeld style!

This latest chapter will see the Merc with the Mouth team up with guest stars like Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Cable against a dangerous new villain. Deadpool’s upcoming mission will also raise the stakes of Deadpool’s intense feud with his adversary known as Thumper, revealing surprising details about the deadly killer’s origin along the way. Additionally, fans will be introduced to brand-new Liefeld created characters including KILLVILLE, ARCATA, and the mysterious warrior SHATTERSTORM! You read that right. Killville.

“Deadpool really doesn’t have a Rogue’s Gallery of his own, he mostly tangles with other heroes villains, so I dedicated the entirety of Bad Blood to building up the story of Thumper,” Liefeld told The Hollywood Reporter. “With Badder Blood, Thumper is making moves across the gangs and crime organizations of the Marvel Universe to squeeze Deadpool and deliver him into his clutches. Thumper is also moving to destroy all the scientists behind the Weapon X program and specifically the program that created him. It’s a romp that continues to build out a Rogues Gallery for Deadpool.”
