So, by now, I think it’s safe to say: Third Eye is home to many a DEADPOOL fan, right? And, with that being said, when we saw that one of our favorite writers in comics, Duane Swierczynski, was going to be taking the Merc with a Mouth back to his roots in the upcoming DEADPOOL VS. X-FORCE… well, we knew we had to do something special, right?
So, we were lucky enough to get Duane to make a special trip to Third Eye on Saturday 7/19 to sign copies of his brand new DEADPOOL VS. X-FORCE series, as well as his other incredible work on series like Valiant’s BLOODSHOT, and IDW’s current run of JUDGE DREDD.
So, what’s up with DEADPOOL VS. X-FORCE? Folks, it’s big guns, big pouches, and big action, as the Merc with a Mouth goes toe-to-toe with the band of militant mutants who helped bring him to prominence.
Journey back to the long-forgotten days of the 1990s, as Deadpool is jumping around the time stream, running amok, and the X-Force must chase after him before he destroys all of American history for good.
Join Cable and his band of mutants they hunt Deadpool through the annals of American History before he can alter the space-time continuum as we know it. Can they stop him in time? That’s what we’re going to find out in DEADPOOL VS. X-FORCE!
Folks: this is going to be so much fun. Duane has written a pure love letter to ’90s-era comics, as the series walks the fine line of telling one kick-ass action tale mixed with the kind of humor that only DEADPOOL can bring, all the while poking fun at some of the more ridiculous aspects of the ’90s Marvel era.
If you grew up with a foil cover in your collection, we think you need this comic in your stack, trust us!

Every mission is a suicide mission. Your name is Angelo Mortalli. Your brother is trapped behind enemy lines and on the verge of – no. That’s not right. Your name is Raymond Garrison. You’ve retired from the dangers of the field, but a desperate plea from your oldest friend plunges you into a vicious firefight that – no. That’s not right, either. You are Bloodshot. You are the shade of gray that freedom requires. The perfect confluence of military necessity and cutting-edge technology. A walking WikiLeaks. A reservoir of dirty secrets that could set the world on fire. And you’ve just been captured.
One of our favorites by Duane, BLOODSHOT is a truly brutal read that has been one of the best Valiant books of the bunch.
In the 22nd century, crime runs rampant in Mega-City One, home to over 400 million citizens, robots, criminals, and lunatics. The only line of defense between anarchy and chaos are… the Judges. Duane does some of the best Dredd we’ve read in quite some time here, and if you dug the killer Dredd film with Karl Urban, then you’ll love this series.
It’s the exciting sequel to 2007’s Messiah CompleX! Cyclops has complete faith that his son, Cable, will do everything he can to protect the so-called mutant messiah – who he believes will save mutantkind. But he also knows what havoc former X-Man Lucas Bishop has wreaked in the nightmarish future. So now he’s sent his black ops team, the X-Force, on a risky, time-traveling mission to save Cable and the child, completely unaware that there’s something else waiting for them in the future. Something not even Bishop was counting on…
