The Demon Vs. Deadpool


I had always liked The Demon, but his appearances in the Alan Moore-written issues of Swamp Thing really made me a big fan.  Moore really had fun with Etrigan speaking in rhyme, and I loved reading his dialogue.  Artists Steve Bissette and John Totleben depicted him perfectly as well, they kept his design but made him appear truly demonic with sharp teeth and claws - he never looked better to me.

Absolutely brilliant character dialogue!

I would love to have seen what Jack Kirby would've done to Deadpool in an issue of MR. MIRACLE. :-)

I agree with Anon #1. This would be a really wild encounter!

Cary Comic said...

So would Anon #2's suggestion. :-)

Hmm. Deadpool married a demon, so I'm not sure what he'd endure in hell... maybe they'll restrain him Clockwork Orange style and force him to watch Green Lantern and Wolverine Origins repeatedly...

@Mike Shirley: more likely (and more deservedly), it'll be the needlessly-overladen-with-f-bombs BLADE III.

P.S.---on a lighter note, how about a cover depicting the flying saucers of Gerry Anderson's UFO vs. the Colonial Vipers of BSG: TOS?

Bob Greenwade said...

You want lighter?

"Mars Attacks the Planet of the Apes!"

Cary Comic said...

YES! Even better; way to go, Bob! :-D

You want lighter?
How about light and heavy at the same time?
How about a team-up of Bouncing Boy, Fat Lady (Was that her code-name?) from the Great Lakes Avengers, Herbie the Fat Fury, and Fatman the Human Flying Saucer?
