He has to draw a lot of different comic book references. If he’s not drawing the same things, if he’s not drawing the same angles or the same poses, he has to draw a bit different. And if that’s not what people want, then he doesn’t work that well because a big part of the appeal of the character is, ‘Let’s have the same exact movements that were drawn in his comics.’ There has to be something in every aspect of the drawing for a character to become a comic book.
But you’ve been drawing it for as long as you’ve been doing this. You started drawing Deadpool in 1992 for a special called Deadpool, the comic that was based around the movie in the 90s. Why did you decide to work on a character whose existence you have the opportunity to write?
I’ve been waiting for this opportunity ever since I started working with Ryan Reynolds. I grew up reading the comics I loved as a child, so it felt like the perfect way for me to create the character.

Exactly, and a lot of them just like it. In this case, the Deadpool character is much more like Batman, like The Punisher, like Wolverine, and a lot of people like that. But I think he does that to himself that Deadpool is like the Punisher, just that a certain element of him is more like Batman or Wolverine, but not like The Punisher. I mean that’s the thing about having the life and the adventures of a man that can’t be in the spotlight, and making sure that he does as much as he can, he’s doing what he can to keep those aspects of himself out.
His whole thing is, he’s always thinking about what’s going to happen next, and he wants a better world, he wants a better
