• Deadpool has been through a lot recently...he needs to relax.
•  Time for a good, old fashioned, simple merc job.

    Duggan and Posehn have evolved Deadpools character and his identity to a point where the traumas and the decisions he must make have as much weight in our minds as any the Cap or Iron Man might take. Major props to team DeadPool (D for Duggan and P for Posehn) Read Full Review

    It's great to see Salva Espin on board for this story as well. Espin really impressed with his work on various Deadpool mini-series, and he's equally well-suited for the core Deadpool comic. His style is energetic and expressive without being overly cartoonish. That suits both the zany action scenes and the dialogue-driven scenes equally well. Like any good Deadpool artist, Espin doesn't let the fact that Waid wears a mask prevent the character from emoting. Read Full Review

    It's a shame that Posehn and Duggan's run is coming to a close soon, but we should be thankful that they're bringing stuff to the table overall that could rival Joe Kelly's when all is said and done. Read Full Review

    Deadpool has gone through some interesting situations and it looks like he has just gotten himself into another one. I am excited to see how this will play out and how it will effect Deadpool in the long run. Read Full Review

    The end of DEADPOOL is nigh! While this may not feel like the beginning of the end, it's still a comic that had me totally absorbed. Espin and Staples are a great visual team for the comedy and the script has plenty of it. But this issue isn't just laughs! This one has a strong, character-driven opening and continues to show hints of Wade's depth throughout the lighthearted journey. What's especially interesting is this comedic adventure is dipping into far more political material and I'm sure that's something they'll explore in the upcoming issues. DEADPOOL #40 is proof these writers can deliver a serious message and make us laugh at the same time. Sure, things get silly pretty quickly, but Duggan and Posehn still have a great handle on the character and I can't wait to see what'll happen next. Read Full Review

    Deadpool#41 is dark, but not too dark by virtue of his interactions with supporting characters. Even though I still don't know why they're married, Shiklahand Deadpool sharea fun backand forthas she continues to give hima hard time for being less ofa “man” when he was Zenpool. Posehnand Dugganalso continue theDeadpooltradition of turning Z-list villains into basically stand-up comedians,and readers will be either laughing with oratan old Human Torch foe by the end of the story. Theyalso manage to throw ina little political satirealong the way, but nothing too deep or super controversial for people witha sense of humor.Deadpool#41 isa simultaneously hilariousand soul searching start to the new storyarc, but itsart is serviceableand doesn't really pop out compared to Posehnand Duggan's writingand Staples' colors.
