To celebrate the launch of It’s A Stampede!, every day for the next year I will be presenting a totally informative, yet totally useless fact under the banner heading: ‘On this day in geekdom’.

Yep, that’s 365 facts!

Here’s today’s slice of geekdom…

July 14th – On this day in 2010, Marvel Comics publishes X-Men Origins: Deapool #1 (One-Shot). The Comixology description reads: “’DEADPOOL: THE MAJOR MOTION PICTURE’ You may have heard there’s a Deadpool movie in the works. Anyway, Wade Wilson’s heard the same thing – and he’s determined to tell his own story before Hollywood screws it up. Deadpool even hires his own screenwriter, who manages to get the Merc With a Mouth to open up like never before-revealing not only his origin story, but shocking details you’ve never heard before. We’re talking Oscar-worthy stuff here, people. That is, unless Hollywood manages to screw it up anyway…”.
