    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Apr 3, 2013

    I'm calling it right now: this is the funniest issue of 2013. I've consulted with Cable and he agrees, too. Seriously, the entire issue is dedicated to delivering big laughs and it absolutely succeeds and then some. I want to see more development from Deadpool in the primary story, but I honestly don't care if he's a goofy fool in a standalone tale -- especially if it makes me burst into laughter so frequently. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a strong urge to read DEADPOOL #11 again. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Apr 6, 2013

    This issue is both a great parody and great reference to the Bronze Age of comics, laying down the story in ways that remind readers how this era treated their stories and their skills through their serialized graphical art. It's also really funny too, just so you know. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Apr 4, 2013

    Think of an extended MAD Magazine gag targeted squarely at comics lore, and you've got this comic in a nutshell. Quite the surprising " and satisfying " read. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - James Hannon Apr 4, 2013

    Wade Wilson can sometimes be a character that is wacky and just plain stupid. In this issue he is wacky, but also very clever. That is the version of Deadpool that I like, and I hope that the writers continue in this vein. He actually comes up with a clever plan in this story, and the conclusion is very satisfying. You cannot be unhappy with that, and when you factor in the solid execution of a number of jokes that hit the nail on the head, you cannot deny that this is an excellent issue of Deadpool.

    Read Comic Books - Tommy Lutz Apr 4, 2013

    In the end, Deadpool #7 may just be an “inventory issue” but it was darn fun to read, and that's all that really matters here. The creative team showed that they're still dedicated to diversity, and that they can do a lot more than just long story arcs. This issue completely solidifies this reviewer's faith in Posehn and Duggan as writers and what can be done in terms of art. The next story arc is set to begin in #8, which also ships this month, so don't let this “one-shotish” issue lead you astray! Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Maxwell Majernik Apr 5, 2013

    Deadpool was a blast to read and one of my favorite books of the week. It was a complete package of entertainment and should be picked up by anyone who was a fan of comics way back when(Yes the 80′s now count as ‘way back when'). The series has won me back. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Jamil Scalese Apr 10, 2013

    With an Iron Man promotional push coming up this comic actually features, and honors, the Armored Avenger in a funky fresh way. I don't want to spoil anything but I will reveal one guest star: Angar the Screamer. Yeah, that makes this a keeper for me. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Apr 3, 2013

    Use Deadpool to mock the establishment like he used to. Have him tell the reader that he's giving the brass the finger and doing whatever he wants instead. The tendencies toward half-logic and catering to the lowest common denominator exhibited by this book are the reasons that this title has failed to shine so far. On the bright side, though, this issue shows that there is the necessary talent to return this book to its former days of glory. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 8, 2013

    Since the Marvel NOW! relaunch afforded me the chance to check out this book, I've been enjoying the adventures of the Merc with a Mouth quite a bit. Previously, Deadpool was an easily ignorable character that played up 1990s tropes and notions I preferred to leave in the past, but the irreverent celebration of Marvel's past (Marvel THEN! as labeled on this issue's cover) in the pages of "Deadpool" #7 proves that humor can be found in everything and some things are simply more prone to it than others. I only hope, like the "Times Past" stories from James Robinson's "Starman" run, readers continue to be treated to Marvel THEN! adventures in the pages of "Deadpool." Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Apr 9, 2013

    fter the insanity of the Dead Presidents arc, Brian Posehn and Grerry Duggan go retro with our favorite Merc with a Mouth. This lead Deadpool #7 to a fun, sometimes disjointed, issue that I found myself laughing at Deadpools antics. Seeing Deadpool do his own take on the Demon in a Bottle story was a fun reference as was the inclusion of Peter Parker and Cable. The addition of Scott Koblish artwork helped capture the retro feel of this issue as he replicated the look of the Marvel comics in the 80s. And as always the letter page of Deadpool brings its own fourth-wall breaking comedy that I have come to love about this series. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Apr 3, 2013

    While still suffering from the cheesy dialogue that has so far plagued the series, the art is the main draw of this issue. Koblishs pencils lovingly rip on this bygone era with strong compositions and dynamic designs, which carries the story with a fair complement of clever visual gags. Iron Man fans will get a kick out of the appearance, as well as the allusion to this classic era of the characters history. Its not brilliant storytelling, but its fun in a way this series really hasnt been. Then again, I am one of those sadistic Iron Man fans who likes to see him made fun of (because, seriously?), so it could just be my bias showing. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Apr 4, 2013

    The exchanges that take place between Stark and Wilson are top notch. Tony's wallowing in booze-laden self pity and Deadpool's there… to convince him to drink those worries away. Read Full Review
