About The Authors
Emily Whitten is an unabashed comic book fan and genre geek who’s been writing since childhood. She enjoys Discworld books, candlelit discussions of Deadpool’s tortured psyche, and long walks at fan conventions. This is her seventh published comic, and she is proud to share that her first comic script ever provoked intense editorial debate over whether or not it was okay to show Deadpool shooting Green Lantern in the head. Previous comics and her (unofficial) writings and tweets as Deadpool can be found at http://askdeadpool.wordpress.com/ and @Ask_Deadpool.
Most people would say Marc Vuletich is not your typical fan boy. In fact, some may worry that his enthusiasm for Deadpool borders on obsession (but who’s to say showering with a Deadpool mask is wrong?). He has been illustrating comic strips for nearly 10 years. His commitment to staying true to Deadpool’s character has led to his large Deadhead following on deviantart.com. For Marc, the best part about drawing comics is making people laugh…even if it kills them. Marc’s work can be seen at Scarletvulture.deviantart.com and Vulture34.deviantart.com.
