For years there’s been rainstorms obstructing the clarity of Deadpool’s sexuality but last night the skies cleared when current author Gerry Duggan confirmed Deadpool’s pansexuality on twitter.
I haven’t read any Deadpool yet (I asked my helpful local comics purveyor and they suggested some titles, so I’ll stock up soon), but I got the vibe that he was kinda Captain Jack with a tighter suit?

One of the hardest things as a creator is to think of your story as something people are reading progressively. Sometimes, when people are confused, I want to say “Well, this was explained perfectly on page 40.” Yeah, but how are they going to remember that, or remember it can be found there? I am very familiar with my comic, and I re-read it from time to time to remember where I am and what I’ve done, but that’s not something readers will be doing. There’s a lot of foreshadowing that in retrospect is kind of unfair: it expects to pack the punch that it only could if you’ve read things that come later. The prologue is that all over! Hell, the prologue even does it to itself (!), where things like Isam’s wedding ring can be seen his very first appearance, but there’s no reason for anyone to notice it until the chapter’s almost over! And there were still folk who didn’t notice Zima’s ring either, even in the page that’s just his hand. Comics are hard, man.
Foreshadowing is great, but if (as you do) you don’t have the resources to turn out pages super-regularly, you can end up foreshadowing something that doesn’t pay off until six weeks later - fine for a reader who’s just sat down and mainlined the whole series in two hours, not so much for anyone who’s following in real time.
Is Carol the baby in Devoto’s first task? Or is that Scott?
I am really looking forward to someone teaching Ichabod Crane about liking things ironically. Or unironically. And he’ll just be like,
I’m with fanon Ichabod here
