Deadpool Vs. The Punisher will be a five-issue series written by Fred Van Lente (Slapstick, Deadpool), with art by Pere Perez (Archer and Armstrong, Power man and Iron Fist), and a first issue cover by Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire. Issue #2 will also arrive in April.
Deadpool and The Punisher have crossed paths before, most recently as members of the Thunderbolts (see "'Thunderbolts' #1 set for December"). Now, The Publisher has set his sights on bringing down The Bank, a shady money man with financial ties to criminal organizations worldwide. The Bank, however, just happens to be old friends with Deadpool, from back before his Weapon X days.
