And, hey, there’s a perfect pairing of the two: DEADPOOL VS THANOS!
That’s right, Third Eye Faithful – see the Merc with a Mouth and the Mad Titan have something in common: they both fell in love with that cruel siren of mortality – DEATH – and of course, neither of them is happy about that!
Deadpool goes to Infinity and beyond when he throws down the gauntlet against Thanos of Titan!
These calamitous combatants are two sides of an unholy love triangle, with Death their fickle mistress.

So, we know you’re super stoked to learn all about Cable – but how can we forget Domino?
And, in this killer graphic novel, you get a super rad stand-alone story that explains the complicated relationship between Domino, Cable, Deadpool and the rest of a little team known as X-Force!
Journey back to the gritty, hyper-detailed days of the 1990s, when two characters debuted who would change the face of comics: Cable and Deadpool!
