    Another strong series under the Deadpool name that proves everything is coming to a head soon, and it's not going to be pretty, but it will be funny. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Jul 9, 2014

    DEADPOOL's latest storyline finally starts heading in a more gripping direction, but co-writers Duggan and Posehn make sure we're treated to plenty of silly fun before we enter a darker atmosphere. And even when this story does begin to shift gears, it's still able to bring the occasional smile and make sure it isn't a totally depressing experience. And, just like with the last issue, they've left us on one heck of a cliffhanger. Sure, some of expressions and character work can be distracting but, all in all, it's an exciting issue and ends with a whole lot of promise. Read Full Review

    Though the vampire subplot that's cropped up lately isn't too compelling, Agent Preston manages to salvage this issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 9, 2014

    The book continues to suffer from lackluster art, however. It's not that John Lucas' storytelling is at fault, necessarily. His action scenes are fun and violent. But Lucas' facial work is distracting at times. It's needlessly exaggerated and often fails to match the emotion in any given scene. And given how much emotion is becoming a factor in this book again, that's a problem. Read Full Review

    Coby's Top 5 Comic of the Week

    Duggan & Posehn's Deadpool is the first Deadpool I've ever cared about, and 31 issues later, they're still doing it right. The Disco Deadpool and Dazzler versus vampires story is interrupted by Preston finding Deadpool's daughter in a way that still felt organic and was paced superbly. I love how the writers play the long game here and have points from several issues ago come back to mean something now (i.e., Deadpool's daughter). Also, the Agent Preston fight scenes were as gory as Invincible vs Conquest and, while not quite as meaningful, were still excellent.
