He's annoying. He's dangerous. He smells terrible. But the public love him. That's right-the Merc with the Mouth may make money for missions of murky morality...but he's become the most popular hero in the world for it. Eat that, Spidey! The world belongs to...DEADPOOL. The fan favorite team of Gerry Duggan and Mike Hawthorne return to bring Deadpool in to his most successful adventures yet!

    A smorgasbord of R rated violence and humor that's long overdue. I want a second trip to this buffet immediately. The two X-Men slow things down, but this edgy film keeps the laughs and gasps going. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Nov 4, 2015

    The creative team gets a lot done in the first issue of this new volume of "Deadpool." While establishing several different plot elements and reestablishing old ties, the book is a perfect introduction to the character for new fans and gives returning fans some stuff to chew on. The ending of the issue proves Deadpool isn't all the way on the side of the angels and readers may leave many wondering if Wade Wilson's actions will stand in the way of his own success. It's a meta story about a meta character with a filthy mouth and it's fun as f*&#. Read Full Review

    Deadpool is back with with his own series once again and all is right with the world. This isn't Deadpool as you've seen before, especially since the public in the Marvel Universe actually adores him. It's almost like he's in some bizarro world. Gerry Duggan has more than proven he gets who Deadpool is and should be. Having him back at the helm is fantastic. We've sometimes seen Deadpool written different and just not feel right. Mike Hawthorne's pencils along with Terry Pallot's inks and Val Staples colors makes the book look good. It looks so good, you might even say it looks sexy. Where is this series taking Deadpool? I have absolutely no idea but I can't wait to find out. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Nov 5, 2015

    Deadpool's latest offers a fresh look at our mouth merc. Duggan and Hawthorne show a clear direction for the character going forward, tempering his oddity in a way that's accessible to readers new and old. There are some inconsistencies, but overall this a great start for what will hopefully be an equally great series. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Nov 5, 2015

    The merc with a mouth is back! Have you missed him as much as he missed missing you missing him? This issue serves to bring a layer of mystery to the return of Deadpool, as well as a sweet new gang to raise awareness of the world's greatest mercenary. The artwork is still just as fantastic as it was in previous issues, before you know, the world blew up.Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to watch that Halloween video again. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lead Sharp Nov 10, 2015

    There's a lot going on in this first issue and it will illicit whinging from the peanut gallery. It's interesting and feels like a continuation of Rick Remender's Deadpool from his Uncanny X-Force run, which was a good take on the character. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Whiting Nov 4, 2015

    It's worth a look for those that want a fairly interesting start and some decent action, but as of yet the chess pieces have only been set up on the board — still untouched. Read Full Review

    Deadpool #1 was definitely a strange new direction for the character, but one that I am eager to see more of. Being full of energy, as well as having some intriguing twists, the creative team definitely left us with a curious state of affairs, giving us something that we've never seen before.

    Deadpool‘s intensely R-rated take on the superhero genre isn't as functional as it should be or as original as it thinks it is, but it does deliver plenty of hilariousdirtyhumor and thrilling action. Read Full Review

    A solid new start for the merc with a mouth, with a brand new life of fame and as a member of the Avengers. I actually liked the idea of a Deadpool team, with every element of it looking and sounding like an interesting character of his own. Maybe a little more laughs would've been appreciated, but the dark humor is quite enough to be enjoyed. The art is simple and effective, but nothing special.

    A distinct lack of jokes for a Deadpool comic, yet it kind of benefits from that. It doesn't have that stench from trying too hard to be funny the way previous issues have had.

    Wow, what the heck did I just read? A horrible concept. When you have a title named Deadpool you expect him in the story and be somewhat funny. You get neither with this book. I really think Daeadpool being an Avenger is hurting his storylines. Duggan needs to do something drastic while the art of Hawthorne is good, nothing to write home about. I'm scared for Deadpool now. I hope he hasn't jumped the shark.

    I don't find this first issue to be very coherent. It doesn't really feel like a Deadpool story. The issue is filled with a bunch of characters that are a hired by Deadpool to pretend they are Deadpool. It doesn't have any of the classic jokes that you want from a Deadpool book and it doesn't really appear to be setting up a storyline that is really that interesting.
