    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Aug 14, 2013

    Duggan and Posehn continue to do what they do best... and that's make me laugh like a fool. They successfully bring this absurd villain to the modern era and it makes for a wildly entertaining adventure which is every bit as enjoyable as the "lost issue." It's essentially slapstick and one-liners for a vast majority of the ride, but the conclusion switches things back into a more serious direction and has me legitimately curious to see how they'll handle the next issue. I love me some purely comedic Deadpool, but I really hope the next issue will be able to incorporate a more serious tone as well because the scenario certainly calls for it. Read Full Review

    This is a fun title. There's laughs, explosions, witty remarks and lots and lots of violence. With hilarious writing and a solid art style, this is one of the most entertaining books in the Marvel stable right now, this is a series that looked shaky, with an over-exposed character at first, but has blossomed into a terrific book.

    It's also worth noting that the appearance of this Butler character, who has apparently been randomly harvesting Deadpool's organs for who knows how long, might be a sign of some of that compelling drama coming back as well. Regardless, they were able to make me laugh at a guy getting sacked, which you'd think is the lowest form of humor. But no! It works on so many levels! Read Full Review

    This really is a funny issue. The creative team certainly had a lot of fun creating and writing the White Man, and I certainly had a lot of fun reading his escapades too. Roll on the next issue! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 14, 2013

    The one strength issue #14 has in its favor is Declan Shalvey's artwork. Shalvey might just be the strongest replacement yet for the departed Tony Moore. He shows a similarly zany, expressive, and violent style that perfectly meshes with Wade Wilson's wacky world. His art alone is enough to pique my interest in the next extended story arc.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Aug 18, 2013

    The coloring follows suit, as the high diversity in coloring bring in a chaos that is pretty nice to watch. Val Staples does some good work here, as the high number of panels are all full of these explosive colors, creating a sharp contrast on every page that all clash together in an almost cohesive manner. It's big, it's pretty but it's almost confusing to watch at times. Some very solid artwork and colorization cannot save some rather dull conflict and jokes, despite how hard it tries to. It's not a complete miss, but it's far from being a hit. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Michael Bowie Aug 17, 2013

    Honestly, I can't recommend this issue. As worthwhile as the ast few pages were for me, they aren't worth the main story of this issue if you aren't already into the series. Want to jump into the current run of Deadpool? Next issue should be a much better jumping on point as The Good, The Bad and The Ugly story kicks off. In the meantime, pick up the first trade, the Dead Presidents story is actually a lot better then it should have been. But do yourselves a favor and let this one pass you by. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Aug 15, 2013

    While the last issue gleefully skewered the 1970s blaxploitation comics of Power Man & Iron Fist, this modern-day follow-up lacks that inside baseball charm. Iron Fist and Power Man really only make a cameo appearance, rather than actually lending some humor to the situation, and the jokes about the White Man wind up crossing the lines of good taste rather than being a guilty laugh.
