Let Your Geek Sideshow presents… Then & Now– a pop culture podcast!

This week, we’re breaking down the fourth wall in order to get into the mind of Marvel’s very own Merc with a Mouth. This twisted character has become synonymous with comedy, absurdity, and pushing the limits of what’s allowed inside of a comic book panel (or on a movie screen). But was he always this way? And who do we have to kill to get some chimichangas in here?

While it might be easy to boil him down into a few popular memes and jokes, Deadpool’s character provides writers, actors, and artists a unique opportunity to examine and experiment with the creative medium.

Whether he’s tearing through panels or talking directly to the audience, the regenerating degenerate’s antics are irreverent, exhausting, and exciting. Deadpool might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but his potential for comic book comedy and social commentary can’t be contained by four walls alone.

No, you’re not hearing extra voices in your head. This is Deadpool Then & Now.
