Article by Gregg Katzman

It’s still so surreal to me that Deadpool has his very own movie. I fell in love with the Merc with a Mouth back in college, which was about a decade ago. The feeling wasn’t mutual, but that didn’t stop me from stalking him – I made it my goal to collect most of his appearances, a mission which would now be ridiculously expensive.
