History[edit]

Publication of Wolverine & Deadpool began in 2004 with issue #104 when Panini retitled it from Wolverine and Gambit. Wolverine headlined the comic with 2x reprints and Deadpool had 1x reprint. During the 1st volume of Wolverine & Deadpool, Panini mainly reprinted Deadpool's 1st ongoing series which included Joe Kelly's and Gail Simone's runs. The Wolverine & Deadpool series was then relaunched (Vol.2) with a new no.1 in June 2010. Volume 2 reprinted 1x Wolverine, 1x Uncanny X-Force (which stars both Wolverine & Deadpool on the same team) and 1x Deadpool issue. This ran for 60 issues, before volume 3 began in July 2014 with a new issue 1, following the conclusion of the Final Execution Uncanny X-Force storyline. Volume 4 began in August 2016, as the title began reprinting the All-New Wolverine series as well as Deadpool's ongoing series

Format[edit]

Each issue is printed monthly, and is usually 76 pages with one Wolverine story and two Deadpool stories. In Volumes 1-3 this ratio had been the reverse, however with this changed with in volume 4 with the debut of All-New Wolverine and the rising popularity of Deadpool following the 2016 movie. The cost of the comic was previously retailed at £3.50, although due to the falling value of the pound, the price was increased to £3.99 beginning with volume 4. A cheaper subscription offer is also available. The inside back page is a letters page, where readers can write letters into the comic. The page currently is titled "Mutants and Motormouths".
