‘Who the hell is Gwenpool?’ I hear you ask! Well, let me inform you!
Gwenpool is Gwen Stacy from an alternate universe, where she just happens to be Deadpool. And just in case you were wondering; No, this is not the same alternate universe where new Marvel mega-hit Spider-Gwen comes from. Apparently Marvel can never get enough of Gwen Stacy!
Anyway, Gwenpool will arrive in main Marvel continuity following the events of Secret Wars, which seems to have also left other fragments of different universes lying about (see Weirdworld or Squadron Supreme).
Her debut will take place as a back-up story in Howard the Duck #1 and will be written by Christopher Hastings and drawn by Danilo Beyruth. Following after that will be a festive one-shot, ‘Gwenpool Special‘ in December; which will also feature Ms Marvel, She-Hulk, Deadpool and Clint Barton Hawkeye and Kate Bishop Hawkeye.
As wacky as this sounds, I’m totally in! This is a pretty lazy idea and is clearly just Marvel trying to capitalise on some of its more trendy characters, but I’m a sucker for a holiday story. Plus, I will read just about anything with Ms Marvel in it!
Bring on December!
