Sound Waves #5 comes out in April.  I just sent the issue off to the printer, as well as a special alternate cover goofing on all the Alternate Deadpool Covers in Marvel Comics lately.....

Hey, I'm a Deadpool fan.  I am perfectly within my rights to goof on this.

Heehee, well I've got no idea what Deadpool is, but that sure is a cute cover. Yay for sending the issue off to the printer, that must be a very good feeling!

Deadpool is a character in Marvel Comics. As his own book puts it:

"Some jobs are just too tough for your average fast-talking high tech gun for hire. Sometimes, to get the job done right, you need someone crazier than a sack of ferrets. You need Wade Wilson. The Crimson Comedian. The Regenerating Degenerate. The Merc With A Mouth."

Part of the reason I read Deadpool is because you don't need to know everything going on in all the other books just to read the stories. The other part is the character is funny, and as long as he makes me laugh, I'll keep reading.

The character languished in relative obscurity for a while, but suddenly caught on. Now, Marvel is doing all kinds of cheap publicity stunts with the character. About half of the comics the solicited last month had "Deadpool" variant covers, where the character is prominently featured on the cover. I like the character, but not that much. They just seem to be going a wee bit overboard.

So, when thinking about all the Deadpool variant covers, I thought, thank God he can only appear on Marvel Comics, or he'd be on others, too. I thought about a Deadpool variant for Sound Waves, and the image of Rhapsody being unimpressed with this hit me.

Rhapsody and Melody were originally side by side. But when I thought about a proper Deadpool look, I realized one of them needed a huge weapon that should be physically impossible to carry. I changed the image so Melody would be the one lugging it. I still think the funniest bit is the pistol holster I have strapped to her tail. That came to me while I was penciling it, and I couldn't shake it.
