    Deadpool #5 isn't dragging on, despite what some may say. The story is still diverse and thrilling, and this issue is no exception. It remains fun to read at all times while adding in a few moments of heartfelt character building. This story will probably go down as one of the best, funniest and most memorable in all of Deadpool's history. Read Full Review

    This was a brilliant issue, and continues this fabulous series nicely. I highly recommend this to anyone, and especially Deadpool fans, as it's always a good read whenever Deadpool's in space, but this issue is probably the best Deadpool in space issue I've read. Read Full Review

    So far, after a rough start, Deadpool is making its way into becoming a major title for Marvel. With improved artwork, writing and humor, the title is beginning to make a name for itself. While some of the humor is still off the mark, hitting into the corny and a bit offensive at times, but it's improving in the plot progression and with hope, this series will continue its run. With the conclusion of this arc next month, it'll be exciting to see where it goes from here. Read Full Review

    The issue gets a 4/5 for losing a little bit of steam since the awesome battle last issue. The look and structure are still pretty good, though. Check in next issue to see if apes take over the pages of Deadpool. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Feb 20, 2013

    Closing in on issue #6 now, the Deadpool vs. Zombie Ghost Presidents premise is getting a little tiresome, but the fight scenes with their solid blend of bat-shit craziness, stylistic flair, and exciting mechanics suit the Regeneratin' Degenerate perfectly and Tony Moore adroitly brings it to life with his artwork.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Feb 20, 2013

    This is a very good Deadpool book, with everything you could ask for. There's good humor, good action and violent yet beautiful art. If you like Deadpool, there is a high chance that you'll love this current iteration of the deranged mercenary found in this volume. Read Full Review

    Basically, this series has been a lot of fun and one of the best in the line, but it didn't really have heart. Lots of blood and guts, but no heart. Sure, you're not looking for that in a Deadpool book, but when you care about what's happening and there's a purpose for things happening, it makes the story stronger and more interesting. I look forward to see how the team finishes up their first Deadpool story. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Feb 20, 2013

    This is a story arc where you've gotta just shut off your brain and enjoy the craziness. Otherwise, you'll findyourselfasking plenty of trivial things... like how these monkeys are still alive in space, how a dead President learned Chinese boxing since being resurrected, so on and so on. If you're looking for logic, you're in the wrong place. But if you want a book that'll make you laugh and cringe at some well illustrated violence, then DEADPOOL is worth every penny of the $2.99 cover price. I'm having a blast with this story, but I really hope the creative team has our anti-hero go down a more serious and character driven path when he's done putting the Presidents back into their graves.

    Blue Raven Comics - James Hannon Feb 21, 2013

    This issue is different from any of the previous ones that have come out during Marvel NOW! And it is different in a good way. In the previous issues it seemed that Deadpool was simply going through the motions in killing the Presidents, but in this issue the stakes are raised and thinks are going badly wrong. I enjoyed seeing the writers take a darker path, and it certainly bodes well for the future of the book. We have also finally zoned in on a major antagonist to the story. It is clear that the undead George Washington is the leader of the merry band of American Presidents. Deadpool will have to defeat him if he wants to win the day. This probably wasn't the strongest issue of this series so far, but it tried things that the others have not. It is because of this that the book deserves a solid 7.5/10. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Feb 20, 2013

    In contrast, Tony Moore's work on art is quite capable. He's asked to draw a number of situations that are logistically complicated, and the action is always explained well. If you're looking for more blood and guts, Moore's got you covered. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Feb 20, 2013

    Another gory adventure complete with cheap one-liners, this issue is more of the same. If you like your humor juvenile and your violence extra-gratuitous, this book is for you. If youre looking for substance, I suggest you keep moving. I wish I had something more to say, but as this series progresses, its adherence to the schlock-and-awe formula isnt doing it any favors.

    ComicBuzz - Graeme Emmett Feb 25, 2013

    A disappointment maybe for the writers but far from the end of the world, it will be interesting to how it goes from here as it has been good so far but Deadpool #5 is sadly a let down even with the fact that Wade fights monkeys in space you would think it must be good if that describes some of the issue but alas it is a let down only saved by Tony Moore but lets hope they conclude the current arc in the next issue on a high like they have done up until now issue 5 excluded of course.
