About this deal

Many moons ago, he had short stories published in The Bristol Short Story Prize and The Spinetinglers Anthology. Definitely gave me proper nostalgic vibes - reminded me of a style book I used to read when I was younger. I became a fan of Deadpool ever since Ryan Reynolds slipped into the red hot tights so I was excited when my request was approved. It would be cool to see the title eventually get developed into a proper app like some of the classic Fighting Fantasy books have done, incorporating the inventory system and dice rolls into the actual book.

Both Gamebooks release on July 5th so you have something to do while recovering from fireworks injuries in the hospital.As the synopsis points out; ‘Things seem weird, even by Deadpool’s standards, when Matt “Daredevil” Murdock offers him a profitable – nay, straightforward! Then suddenly a masked man with double sword and guns appears in front of you with an offer to help him save the city by uncovering a secret mission of alien guns flooding the city.

As in the Choose Your Own Adventure novels you will read along, constantly needing to make decisions on what to do next, but unlike with those books you will have stats that will fluctuate depending on your actions, be able to acquire items to help along the way, be forced to do puzzles, and even fight battles, the outcomes of which will be dependent by dice rolls and stat modifications. The instructions are presented in an unfussy and integrated way that gets the job done without delaying getting into the action. There are so many possibilities for the story and game play, with all the options and things to collect along the way. Niche Marvel knowledge is needed at one point; here's a numbered entry where it's clearly you doing the fighting; here's a great paucity of death scenes (only seven and a chance of an eighth before I'd mapped my way to the Big Boss's introduction!With his awareness that he is a fictional character, Deadpool is the perfect protagonist for this kind of adventure and Dedopulos often uses this to his advantage to create a snarky irreverent tone for the book.
