Marvel Comics has a fantastic roster of straight-up fun characters that don't need to be tied into the grim and gritty goings on of day-to-day modern superheroics. It's an aspect of the Marvel Universe the publisher has really leaned on in recent years with titles such as The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Howard The Duck and The Astonishing Ant-Man, but it seems that playtime is over thanks to Deadpool: Too Soon?, a new miniseries by Joshua Corin and Todd Nauck.

Announced today via ComicVine, the new miniseries will start next week on July 6th as a digital first Infinite Comic before being released in print this October. The series sees Deadpool on the hunt for a killer targeting the funniest and most beloved of Marvel's comedy characters, beginning with the one and only Forbush Man, and includes cameos from the likes of Squirrel Girl, Spider-Ham and, surprisingly, The Punisher.

Deadpool: Too Soon marks Joshua Corin's comics debut, as he is best known for his novels such as Nuclear Winter Wonderland, about an underachieving college student who discovers a plot to send the world into nuclear Armageddon. Todd Nauck is a veteran of superhero comics who has previously drawn the likes of Young Justice, Nightcrawler and perhaps most notably the story in Amazing Spider-Man featuring President Barack Obama.
