You Are (Not) Deadpool

A Marvel: Multiverse Missions Adventure Gamebook

By Tim Dedopulos

Deadpool forces you to defeat predictability (and sure, okay, some bad crime lords along the way) through mini-games and puzzles in this new adventure gamebook with Marvel’s “Merc with a Mouth”

Things seem weird, even by Deadpool’s standards, when Matt “Daredevil” Murdock offers him a profitable – nay, straightforward! – contract. No chaos, no unpredictability, no funny business… C’mon, Murdock, that’s just not Deadpool’s style. Sensing something is up, Deadpool grabs an innocent bystander off the street to confuse any semblance of predictability the universe is trying to force on him. Good-hearted mischief spirals into a sinister plot full of impenetrable bank vaults, crime lords stroking their (lack of) mustaches in very evil ways, and an assortment of offensively stylish suits that are begging to be blown up, Deadpool discovers his choices are no longer his own – they’re yours!



It isn’t easy being extraordinary. Superhuman powers can be both a gift and a curse in a world where those talents can be used for good or evil. A lucky few are taught how to control their abilities at the Charles Xavier Institute, while others must master their uniquely dangerous powers alone. Will they become true heroes and heroines when called upon to defend the world, or turn their fearsome abilities to conquering the world? Meanwhile, in a realm beyond Earth, mighty heroes do battle with monsters of myth and undertake quests to restore peace and honor to the legendary halls of Asgard and the Ten Realms.

About the Author

TIM DEDOPULOS is an unrepentant writer, editor, puzzle creator, game designer, and all-round word-slinger. He has written and/or edited just about everything it is possible to get paid to write and/or edit – books, manuals, games, puzzles, billboards, scripts, slogans, contracts, yadda yadda yadda – except plays. So far. He has used about a dozen pen-names which must remain absolutely secret. A long-time lover of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and comics, he is particularly interested in the places where prose, film and game are coming together. He can be found on Twitter as @ghostwoods, where he exclusively tweets absolute nonsense and insists on pretending the real world isn’t happening.

Interviews and Articles

“Manic, zany and a bundle of fun from the beginning to its many endings, You are (not) Deadpool is a brilliant launch title for the Marvel Multiverse Missions range.”
Pop Culture Bandit

“Basically, anyone can enjoy this book. Sometimes Deadpool can be a little grotesque but Tim Dedopulos manages to keep the book more PG-13 than R and that’s nice. It allows everyone to come to the party and hang out with Deadpool. Just remember, no matter how many times you save the world, You are (NOT) Deadpool!”
Comic Circus

“This writer cannot stress enough that the character of Deadpool is the perfect fit for this format. As his unwitting fictional sidekick you are responsible for surviving his hazards, cleaning up his mess, suffering the consequences of his recklessness and, when necessary, going against his demands altogether.”
The Book Network

“It’s a lot of fun! Tim Dedopulos (can I call you Tim?) does a fantastic job running Deadpool’s mouth and making with the funny. There’s plenty of wacky antics and action (did I mention there’s a lot of fighting?) to keep you entertained.”
AEIOU and Sometimes Why

Praise for Tim Dedopulos

“A genre-bending collection… This mix of horror, noir and urban fantasy plays with the boundaries of literary genre fiction.”

Kirkus, on Red Phone Box: A Darkly Magical Story Cycle


“I was drawn into this book from the beginning, and I allowed it to drag me by the nose until the end. This is probably the best compliment I can give a book.”
