Its the Merc with a Mouth in a pulp caper filled with lies, spies and shapely thighs, courtesy of Mike Benson & Adam Glass (Deadpool: Suicide Kings, Luke Cage Noir) and Laurence Campbell (Punisher)! Wade Wilson. Codename: Deadpool. Hes the CIAs deadliest agent. Hes also certifiably insane, suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder and haunted by the ghosts of his past. In other words, hes the perfect soldier in a Cold War where its impossible to tell friend from foe and reality from a lie. Wilson is also the only one capable of hunting down a rogue CIA agent and recovering the stolen nuclear suitcase shes carrying before she hands it over to Americas enemies. But who is this femme fatale and why has she turned traitor? And is Deadpool crazy enough to survive or will he become trapped in a web of international intrigue? Parental Advisory $3.99

    The attempts to integrate Deadpool's friends and enemies into the story are somewhat less successful. Cable and Stryfe as two rival FBI agents? Benson and Glass stick to the now-familiar system of dual narrative captions for Deadpool. Here, though, they actually have some relevance to the plot in addition to providing a bit of humor. Laurence Campbell's artwork is attractive in its deep blacks and moody tone, but in some ways it only further hinders the book's attempts to capture the pulp aesthetic. Readers may have to accept that Deadpool: Pulp doesn't provide exactly what the title advertises, but the story within shows promise regardless of that title. Read Full Review
