Yes, Gail Simone is returning to Marvel. No, she isn't leaving DC Comics. Unlike fellow writer Charles Soule, she isn't trying to take over the entire comic book world by writing every single book (seriously how does that man balance writing all those comics?). Nope she's only making an appearance to write a story for Deadpool #27, which just so happens to be that wedding issue everyone is talking about.

For now, it appears the issue will be the only Marvel book she'll be writing, and she isn't alone, as #27 will feature other writers who've written the Merc with a Mouth: Fabian Nicieza, Mark Waid, Joe Kelly, Christopher Priest, and many more (as per the Deadpool Bugle). This issue will truly be a Deadpool's fan dream come true. Here's the entire solicitation:


Save the date! Marvel Comics would like to formally request the honor of your presence at the wedding of Deadpool this April in the pages of the super-sized DEADPOOL #27! Presiding over the ceremony will be Messers Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn with the artistic aesthetics of Mike Hawthorne and Scott Koblish.

A day you never dreamed would come has finally arrived – as Deadpool and his mysterious bride to be (wouldn’t you like to know?) tie the knot in front of friends and family alike. And in a way only the Merc With a Mouth can! Believe us, this one is going to be…interesting.

“We’re complicating his life and we’ll be pulling him in different directions,” said writer Gerry Duggan in an interview with “I think that’s something everyone can relate to, and will lead to some more fun comic books.”

The ceremony will be followed by a reception unlike any other – as ‘pool writers of yesteryear return for new stories featuring the garish groom-to-be. Including Fabian Nicieza, Mark Waid, Joe Kelly, Christopher Priest, Jimmy Palmiotti, Frank Tieri, Gail Simone, Daniel Way & Victor Gischler.

Though gifts are not required, the happy couple has requested you bring your own weapons to the reception. Please RSVP at your local comic shops when DEADPOOL #27 walks down the aisle this April!

Now the only question this reporter has left is: WHY HASN'T ROB LIEFELD BEEN ATTACHED TO THIS?!

[Editor's note: Asking for Rob Liefeld to be attached to a book, Zechs? And so soon after Christmas? You really are evil.]
