The History of Filipino Artists with DEADPOOL

[UPDATE: 2/11 – We’ve updated the list. -N]

New Mutants 98

New Mutants #98, First Appearance of Deadpool

Deadpool was created by Rob Liefield and made his debut in New Mutants #98 back in 1991. The character’s rise to prominence was slow but sure and became a force to be reckoned with through irritating albeit entertaining ways. One of the striking characteristics of Deadpool is that he is the infamous “rip-off” of the DC Comic mercenary/super soldier Deathstroke, whose real name is Slade Wilson; Deadpool’s real name is Wade Wilson. The merc with a mouth, through his quirks, became more popular than the character his parodies. A primary part of Deadpool’s rise is the collaborative efforts of the writers and the artists.

It’s been 25 years since the inception of the chimichanga-loving, fourth wall-breaking super soldier. Throughout the character’s history, these writers and artists (Joe Kelly, Fabian Nicieza, Christopher Priest, Daniel Way, Brian Posehn, Gerry Duggan, Mark Waid, Gail Simone and Ed McGuinness to name a few) have molded him into what he is today.

We present a list of Filipinos comic book artists who has drawn Deadpool.
