Deadpool hits the streets with Power Man & Iron Fist!
About the Author
Brian Posehn was born a long time ago and fell in love with comic books at a very young age. He decided to wait to write them until he was in his forties. Before embarking on a career in comic-book writing, he floated through a series of odd jobs – including standup comedy, TV writing, and film and sitcom acting. Since arriving at Marvel, he feels he’s found his true calling, but will continue to do “the other crap” “for fun.” Posehn’s collaborations with Gerry Duggan include The Last Christmas, a Jaws parody for The Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror comics, some screenplays and TV ideas you’ll never see, and a baby they’re raising together in the basement of a local abandoned sanitarium.
Gerry Duggan received the education he needed to write from a steady diet of comic books and Late Night With David Letterman. He didn’t know that…so he wasted a ton of money on a pricey diploma from Emerson College in Boston. After graduating, he arrived in Los Angeles and hooked up almost immediately with Brian Posehn. Together, they’ve written Marvel NOW!’s Deadpool, The Simpsons and The Last Christmas, the true story of Santa Claus after the apocalypse. Both he and artist Phil Noto earned Eisner Award nominations for The Infinite Horizon, a re-imagininging of The Odyssey in a dystopian future.
