Deadpool Writer Daniel Way Working on New Game
Over on Activision’s One of Swords blog, the news broke that Daniel Way is working on the new Deadpool game for High Moon Studios. For those not in the know, Daniel Way is the current writer on the character’s comic book for Marvel. While I haven’t read any of Way’s work on Deadpool, he’s been on the book for a long, long time, and the fans seem to dig it.
My own personal experience with Deadpool began way back in the ‘90s, when Joe Kelly started working on the character’s first solo ongoing series, and transformed him into a C-list Spider-Man knock-off X-Men villain into an ever-present star at the House of Ideas. I’m a fan of the character, to be sure, and it’s only my desire to pinch pennies that keeps me from picking up the current series.
But I’m definitely interested in the game, especially now that we know it’s being written by someone who’s got an established track record. Deadpool is known for his humor, and if they can get that down, we may be able to rely on High Moon to get the rest—you know, the game itself—just right.
