Deadpool Breaks Record for Most Characters on a Comic Book CoverFebruary 17th, 2016
Did you know that Deadpool is having a wedding? He is, and everyone is invited – and I mean everyone. They are all showing up to Deadpool’s wedding on the cover of issue #27, which comes out tomorrow. They are all here. Forbush Man, Squirrel Girl. The Thing, Spidey, Nightcrawler. Is anyone even missing? In all, there are 232 Marvel characters on the cover.
This cover beats the Guinness World Record of 224. Artist Scott Koblish now has a world record for the largest number of comic book characters on a single issue cover. This must have driven him insane, keeping track of all of these characters, but Koblish and his team did it.
“When artist Scott Koblish proposed this cover layout to me, I thought he was crazy,” said Deadpool editor Jordan White, below left. “But it’s the kind of crazy you have to respect. I think there’s no better testament to both his insanity and the amazing cover he and colorist Val Staples produced than an officially recognized world record.”
That is one awesome wedding.
