Marvel's "fresh start" initiative was announced as a way to temporarily boost sales bring in new readers with new series, new creative teams, and new stories. It sounded good on paper at least. 

Deadpool #1 will launch from longtime Marvel creators Skottie Young and Nic Klein. Young is best known for his writer on Rocket and for the thousand of variant covers featuring baby versions of Marvel characters. Klein is best known for his work on Captain AmericaSecret Avengers, and New Warriors.

Young talked to Polygon about how he had to settle for Rocket after being denied Deadpool.

"Before I pitched Rocket Raccoon back in 2013, I tried to get Deadpool. haha," Young wrote to Polygon, "But he was spoken for so I said 'well, i can kind of have a similar vibe for Rocket, just cleaned up a bit.' So my head was already in that place."

The solicit info for Deadpool #1 is below.

Skottie Young and Nic Klein bring you the craziest tales of the regeneratin' degenerate yet! It's been a while since Deadpool's had to merc to make ends meet, but things are tough all over. WhileDeadpool tries to get his humble mercenary-for-hire business back off the ground, a catastrophic threat so unfathomably huge, so mind-breakingly cataclysmic it defies description, is heading towards Earth, and there's only ONE PERSON WHO CAN STOP IT!!!

Oh no, wait, it''s not Wade, is it?

Oh, ☠☠☠☠. It's Wade.
