Deadpool: Black, White, & Blood #1

Following in the footsteps of Batman, and other heroes who have gotten their own black-and-white anthology series, Deadpool gets three tales in Deadpool: Black, White, & Blood #1 which feature the wisecracking hero's wacky adventures in three colors. In "Red All Over," Deadpool calls Honey Badger for help in wrangling a zombie zebra (or as Wade names it a zombiebra) and have a heart-to-heart with the CEO of the company creating undead killing machines.

"Hotline to Heaven" involves Deadpool's overreaction when discovering he can't stream an old Bea Arthur movie and his quest to find a copy of the film. Deadpool is invited to check out Omega Red's new home in "Born in the USZORSUSR" only to see Ursa Major show up in an attempt to take over Omega Red's "utopia" in the Canadian wilderness. Poor Canada.

Fans of Deadpool should enjoy the various antics found in these disconnected tales involving some unusual cameos, the character's obsessive compulsions, and a lot of blood.
