'Deadpool & Wolverine: WWIII' #1 Hits Stands with a Special Surprise Variant Cover

Celebrating the series' launch, retailers received a special 'Deadpool & Wolverine: WWIII' #1 variant cover by artist Gabriele Dell'Otto.

The two most talked-about comic book icons of the year are co-starring in their latest team-up-series: DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE: WWIII.

Brought to you by two of the characters’ most legendary creators, writer Joe Kelly and artist Adam Kubert, DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE: WWIII is a three-issue epic that’s a must-have for fans and a perfect entry point for newcomers to Wade and Logan’s comic book adventures.

The debut issue hits stands next week, and to celebrate this highly-anticipated launch, comic shops will receive a special surprise DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE: WWIII variant cover! The Promo Surprise Variant Cover is an all-new take on acclaimed artist Gabriele Dell’Otto’s regular variant cover that features Wolverine in his beloved brown costume. 

Wade Wilson and Logan at the ends of the earth—and each other's throats! The most intensely mismatched team-up in comics and pop culture—the best there is and the merc with the mouth—undergoes a radical change in this three-part, globe-spanning saga for the ages!

The mysterious Delta believes in change. Change is good. But as he sets his sights on Deadpool, and Wolverine is caught up in the plot, is the third time really the charm, or the curse? Get ready for WWIII to erupt on the scene with the wildest duo in comics!
