Gwenpool Is Real, Will Debut In November


After Marvel teased Gwenpool the other day, I had a feeling this was coming, I just wasn’t sure how it would play out.

But your eyes do not deceive you. Gwenpool is real, and Marvel revealed that she will make her comic book debut in November in the pages of Howard the Duck #1. To be precise, she’ll appear in backup stories in Howard the Duck #1-3 written by Christopher Hastings and illustrated by Danilo Beyruth. They’ll be showing us how Gwenpool arrives in the new Marvel Universe and why she wants Howard to be her guide.

Then in December, she’ll graduate to a book of her own. Gwenpool Special #1. Okay, not completely her own, as the other stories in the holiday compilation will feature She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel and both Hawkeyes, but at least Gwenpool will be the title character of her own comic, and that counts for something.

Marvel says that Gwenpool is “ready to slice and dice her way into your heart – literally.” That sounds painful. I just want to know how long it will be until she crosses paths with Deadpool. If you have “not long” in your office pool. I like your chances.

Look for the first appearance of Gwenpool in Howard the Duck #1, which goes on sale November 4, and be sure to tell the folks at your LCS you knew this was going to happen all along. They love it when people do that.
