    DEADPOOL #24 is a terrific character study. Duggan and Posehn have put Wade through some absolutely horrific events and they're showing us these developments weren't just for shock value. What's gone down isn't being forgotten or cast aside like other stories sometimes tend to do -- they're taking a toll and have consequences. However, seeing as this is DEADPOOL, they're able to balance this focus on character depth with some massively creative bits of action and a consistent supply of sharp jokes. It's an absorbing ride and how it all ends is guaranteed to make you stick around for the next issue. I'm loving this volume and it's very possible Duggan and Posehn were put on this planet just to write Deadpool. The fact they've had the opportunity to share the story with such amazing artists is just... um... sour cream on the chimichanga? Okay, I'll leave the jokes to them from now on. I promise.

    Those who have dismissed this title have lost out on the scope Posehn and Duggan have given this title. Events from the first story arc come into play even here (The Ghost of Ben Franklin even makes a manifestation!), and the series works as one long story instead of pieces set up into rows of six. Those who have dismissed this character for being a gag, an irritant, or an over exposed inside joke are missing this new depth of Wade Wilson, a character who feels regret, penance, and most of all grief. It's a new era for the guy, and it makes for some of the best stories ever written about him. If you have even a passing interest in Deadpool, go back and start with this volume. If this issue, and the weight it carries on his indestructible shoulders, is any indication, it will be the volume that makes Deadpool someone to care about again. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Feb 28, 2014

    With some very strong themes, some solid character work, a very great handle on internal continuity and some very good work from Hawthorne and Bellaire, this issue delivers a solid conclusion to an arc and to a phase in Wade Wilson's life. Better than it should be, this volume continues to impress. Read Full Review

    Again, we take a trip back into Deadpool's mind and get to explore how truly messed up he is. The jokes work well and we get a glimpse at some version of Deadpool that seems to be a calm, cool, and collected fellow. I'm sure he'll be making an appearance somehow in the future and I'll be looking forward to it. We also see Agent Preston get what she's wanted for a while. I've enjoyed her being in Deadpool's head and the way the conversation went back and forth, but now Deadpool is alone with himself and it's questionable how he'll handle recent events. Will he ever get paid?
