It's everyone's favorite merc-with-a-mouth, only now he's got a bill? That's right, folks! It was announced at New York Comic-Con that Marvel is producing a five issue mini-series that is set for release in January. The incredibly strange storyline is as follows:
S.H.I.E.L.D. has ordered Deadpool to track down an alien. During this mission Deadpool runs into Howard the Duck. Somehow the two become fused into a half-man, half-duck creature. This new being, Deadpool the Duck, suffers some inner turmoil as both Deadpool and Howard battle for control over their shared mind.

The picture above is the cover of issue No. 1 in the series. You can see pretty much everything you need to know about our brand new "hero most fowl." Below is the cover of issue No. 2. Everyone's favorite foul-mouthed raccoon will be making an appearance, because you can't have Deadpool turn into a talking animal without letting Rocket Raccoon in on the action.
Stuart Moore and Jacopo Camagni are behind the wheel on this one. Moore is of course known for his extensive work as a writer with Marvel Comics including: Namor: The First Mutant, Spider-Man: Fear Itself, and Iron Man: Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Camagni is no slouch himself, having penciled and inked such stories as: Guardians of the Galaxy: Best Story Ever Vol #1, World War Hulks: Wolverine & Captain America Vol #1, and Deadpool Annual Vol. 3 #2.
The idea is absolutely bonkers, but in comic books you can get away with this particular brand of ridiculousness. Unfortunately, this is only a short run, but surely if it is well received, will see more of this mash-up superhero around the Marvel Universe. That's all folks!
Until we see Deadpool the Duck fully realized, we hope to see as much of the sass that Ryan Reynolds brought to the Merc in the film version:
