Announced Monday on ComicVine, "All-New X-Factor" and "Spider-Man 2099" writer Peter David is expanding his current Marvel output beyond "Deadpool's Art of War." The four-issue miniseries is slated to debut in October and will be illustrated by Scott Koblish, seen recently on multiple installments of the "Deadpool" ongoing series.

The miniseries is set to combine Deadpool with Sun Tzu's legendary "The Art of War" and marks David's first time writing the Marc with a Mouth.

"[Dedpool is] a combination of Ambush Bug and Wolverine," David told ComicVine, indicating how he plans to approach the character. "He certainly knows he's in a comic but doesn't let that affect how he goes about his business."

Check back with CBR for more to come on "Deadpool's The Art of War."

Written by PETER DAVID
Sun Tzu’s Art of War has been called the definitive work on military strategy and tactics and has influenced leaders in both warfare and business for hundreds of years...which means it’s totally in the public domain and ripe for being ripped off by Deadpool! And what’s Deadpool’s plan to ensure his version of Art of War outsells the original? Make sure the entire world is at war when it comes out!
