I saw this post on Facebook:

And I thought that if it was real, it would be a good issue.

So, is there any issue where Deadpool kills off everyone, as well as the writers?

Yes. This is the primary plot of "Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe", a four-comic what-if 'killogy' event from 2011-2012

The official site has this to say;

"What if everthing you thought was funny about Deadpool…was actually just disturbing? • What if he decided to kill everyone and everything that makes up the Marvel Universe? • What if he actually pulled it off? Would that be FUN for you? • The Merc with a Mouth takes a turn for the twisted in a weekly horror comic like no other…"

At the very end, he literally breaks (well, cuts) the 4th wall.

The suggestion is that he's going to kill his writers :-)

Deadpool's offing of Wolverine is wonderfully simple in that one. – joshbirk Aug 5 '14 at 15:39
@joshbirk How did he do it? – Trenin Aug 6 '14 at 17:42
@Trenin IIRC, he waits for Wolverine to get drunk and ambushes him in an alley. He then shoves his head into a circuit breaker box and electrocutes him via all the wonderful metal in his body. Instant brain death. It's brilliant, imho, because a) he doesn't try to fight him and b) it's a realistic way around Wolverine's healing factor almost despite how ludicrously powerful some writers treat it. – joshbirk Aug 6 '14 at 17:46
@joshbirk - Except that we've seen a bunch of times that electricity doesn't kill Wolverine – Valorum Aug 6 '14 at 17:47
@Richard we've seen a lot of BS when it comes to what does and does not kill Wolverine. – joshbirk Aug 6 '14 at 17:51

This is referring to the four-issue limited series Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe.

Wikipedia explains:

In the storyline Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, the X-Men send Deadpool to a mental hospital for therapy. The doctor treating him is actually Psycho-Man in disguise, who attempts to torture and brainwash Deadpool into becoming his personal minion. The procedure fails, but leaves Deadpool even more mentally unhinged; as a result, he kills Psycho-Man and begins assassinating every superhero and supervillain on Earth one by one in an attempt (apparently) to rebel against his comic book creators. The book ends with him breaking into the 'real' world and confronting the Marvel writers and artists who are currently writing the book. Before he proceeds to enter he turns to the reader, promising that once he's done with this universe, "I'll find you soon enough."
