PREVIEW: 'Deadpool: Merc With A Mouth' #1 -- Zombie Deadpool Revealed!

Deadpool: Merc with A MouthFresh off his big-screen debut in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," Deadpool gets his own ongoing series this July titled, appropriately enough, "Deadpool: Merc With A Mouth."

While the publisher debuted the first few pages of the new series over at last week, they've saved the best for last with this exclusive look at one of the issue's most important (non-spoiler) scenes: the big reveal of Zombie Deadpool's head! And if the synopsis for the upcoming "Head Trip" storyline is to be believed, readers will be seeing a lot more of the disembodied (yet still chatty) head of the Marvel Zombies mercenary as the still-living merc attempts to return him to his own universe -- and avoid getting bitten in the process.

Written by Victor Gischler and featuring art from Bong Dazo and (of course) Arthur "Marvel Zombies" Suydam, "Deadpoool: Merc With a Mouth" #1 will also feature a reprinting of "New Mutant" #98 -- the first appearance of Deadpool. So, without further ado, here's your first peek at page 22 of "Merc With a Mouth," the first encounter between Deadpool and... his zombie head.

Yup, from this point on, readers can probably expect warm-hearted adventures reminiscent of "Odd Couple" episodes from back in the day -- except with more flesh-eating undead, explosive gunfights and bullet-riddled henchmen.

"Deadpool: Merc With A Mouth" #1 hits shelves July 1.
