Deadpool Team-Up #888 hits the stands today with a story about the ever-lovin’ blue-eyed Thing stepping into the wrestling ring to battle an alien courtesy of Cullen Bunn and Tom Fowler, and if you grab the issue — and you should — you may notice a few familiar faces in the background. Or, since we’re mostly known for text and audio, you probably won’t.
Point is, Euge and I are in the crowd! He’s on the left with his official Adam WarRock Fade, while I’m on the right, unshaven, shouting, and about to spill my drink, which is pretty much my default state. This marks my second appearance in a Marvel book (look closely in the backgrounds of Captain America #28 and you’ll catch a SHIELD agent reading the ISB) and my third overall (the second being in The Batman Strikes alongside Rachelle Goguen and other comics bloggers), and I’m pretty sure that means that if I get one more, they are legally required to put me in the Handbook.
It’s only a matter of time before the fact that I have the strength of a normal man who engages in infrequent light exercise before getting bored with it and going to play video games is enshrined in the Hallowed Halls of the House of Ideas.
