We at Quirk Books care about Deadpool's literary tastes. He might not be the most self-centered but he does like to see himself in what he reads. Off-center moral compass? Dancing along the fourth wall? Brilliant, meta, snarky, and never boring? That sounds about right.

As fans of Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s comic book The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen know, a tale about Victorian era characters banding together to fight evil is one of the most brilliant ideas ever. Not such a great idea was the 2003 Film adaptation directed by Stephen Norrington and starring Sean Connery. The film took some wild departures from the source material and was plagued with all manner of on-set drama.

Imagine how horrible Thanksgiving would be if you might end up on the wrong side of the fork.

These days it seems that film and TV can’t get enough of turning literature into live-action. Hit series like Outlander, Game of Thrones, True Blood and Orange is the New Black all came from the pages of a book, while movie versions of novels are so common that I couldn’t even begin to list them all.
