    It's hilarious, it's hysterical, it's random and far-fetched. It's crazy…So crazy it works!!! Read Full Review

    Sure, these are gimmick issues, but Deadpool comics should always be a place where gimmicks can feel right at home. Is there more to come? Will we get a Golden Age issue where Deadpool punches Hitler? We can only hope these folks have more madcap hijinks up their sleeves. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Dec 4, 2013

    The Good, The Bad and the Ugly was easily one of Deadpool's most gripping stories. This one? It's without question one of the weirdest, and if you're into totally random humor, odds are you'll have a blast. Read Full Review

    Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan have turned in some fine Deadpool comics lately. They've added high stakes and gravitas to an otherwise silly character, but that doesn't mean they've forgotten how to have fun. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Gilad Levin Dec 6, 2013

    Where are the flaws? The story contains way to many sub plots and material to fit in one issue and as a result, the whole story feels rushed. It might have worked if I didn't feel as though the story moved along because it was forced to and not because of a natural progression. There is not enough room for every sub plot, so the whole story felt a bit off. That said, Deadpool #20 is a solid read and is recommended for all Deadpool fans out there. Read Full Review

    Deadpool time travels and finds himself on an adventure that requires some detective skills. The comic book is a great one shot that creates a Silver Age comic in the modern age. The character and the storytelling is an acquired taste but I bet if you pick this up you will be entertained and you close the cover with a smile on your face. These types of comics are pure fun.

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Dec 6, 2013

    “Deadpool” #20 is a visually-stunning throwback issue – even better than the few that came before it courtesy of this great team. Unfortunately, not enough of the jokes land this time around, whereas other trips to the past have reaped jokes upon jokes per page. Off-color jokes in the '70s totally worked, where a different sort of touch seems required in the cosmic Marvel setting. There are laughs to be had, but the hit percentage is low for a Merc that loves firing ‘em off. Read Full Review

    Now, I do want you to understand, Im being a bit hard on this issue, but it did make me laugh, I did have some fun reading it, I just didnt find it to be nearly the kind of coherent story I enjoy. I do have to wonder though, issue #7 was really the kickoff to the Vetis storyline which ran from issue #8-12, and issue #13s flashback carried into a present day one-shot in issue #14. So what elements from this story are we going to see bleed into the next issue(s) of the series. Well just have to wait and see I guess. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Dec 7, 2013

    The colorization really doesn't fare much better, though, as the colorization is much too extravagant and unfocused, leaving a certain ugliness all around that makes this issue visually weaker. While the colorization could certainly go overboard in some issues with Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby, it just comes as a bit too forced and does not make any actual statement beside being rather ugly. The impossibly high diversity, with bright and extreme colors does not make for something pleasant, putting close to no effort for clear contrasts or anything to the like. Val Staples is usually very good, but this direction doesn't do much for this issue in terms of quality. It's not very funny, with most of the jokes missing the mark, with a rushed story and an artistic direction that simply doesn't even come near the potential it has. All in all, this really isn't the best reserve issue or even one of the best issue of Deadpool. Not recommended. Read Full Review
