Deadpool Wins the Guinness World Record for the Largest Number of Characters on a Comic Book Cover

UPDATE 2/18/15: On Facebook, Rebecca Wilson points out that this article is 2 years old! I should have noticed that, but didn't.


Everyone is showing up to Deadpool’s wedding on the cover of issue #27, which is coming out on Wednesday. Look, there’s Forbush Man on the left! And Squirrel Girl is one of the maids of honor! They’re among 232 Marvel characters on the cover, of which Guinness World Records considers 224 to be significant. So artist Scott Koblish wins a world record for the largest number of comic book characters on a single issue cover. It was a daunting task, but Koblish and his colleagues diligently completed it:

“When artist Scott Koblish proposed this cover layout to me, I thought he was crazy," said Deadpool editor Jordan White, below left. "But it’s the kind of crazy you have to respect. I think there’s no better testament to both his insanity and the amazing cover he and colorist Val Staples produced than an officially recognized world record.”

You can see a much larger version of the cover here.

Given the 'feud' that's going on with Reynolds and Jackman the one thing that could have made this even funnier would be if Wolverine was the only character who DIDN'T appear on it.
