Written by DUANE SWIERCZYNSKI
Pencils & Cover by JASON PEARSON
“THIS TIME, IT’S PERSONAL”
They say the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist…Wait. That wasn’t “they.” It was Kevin Spacey, in The Usual Suspects. Anyway, Wade Wilson -- a.k.a. Deadpool -- seems to have the opposite problem. He’s having a damned hard time convincing the world that he does exist, that he’s been a brave soldier on the front lines of America’s secret wars for more than two decades. Now his former partner Domino is pointing a gun at Wilson’s head on live TV, telling a panel of Senators that he’s full of [REDACTED]. But when the truth finally does emerge, the walls will come tumbling down and everybody will be caught in the crossfire just the way Deadpool likes it. Don’t miss the conclusion of Duane (Cable) Swierczynski’s and artist Jason (Body Bags) Pearson’s full-tilt double-barrel assault on reality.

Written by CRAIG KYLE & CHRISTOPHER YOST
Art and Cover by GABRIELE DELL’OTTO
WARNING: This issue lives up to the title. Not for the squeamish or easily embarrassed, wink wink. Wolverine finds out why the Assassins Guild is after Domino, and it's a funny story. Well, Domino thinks it is. But Logan is grumpy and does't see the humor in it, probably due to the fact that Dom's actions have put a half dozen of the worlds deadliest assassins on their trail. And then things get complicated. Ahhh, romance.
