    It’s going to be really cool to see Deadpool and Thanos work together. I was kind of looking forward to the two of them battling it out for Death’s love, but a tag team with them doesn’t sound too bad, either. With Deadpool’s fast moves and Thanos’ raw power, this series is bound to have some memorable moments. Keep reading to find out how these two work together! Read Full Review

    This issue marks a promising start for Deadpool's latest mini-series. While Seeley spends too much time setting up the reluctant team-up between the two title characters, he does show a firm grasp on both their voices and the unusual interplay they share. Backed up by solid visuals, issue #1 should easily hook fans of either Deadpool or Thanos. Read Full Review

    Deadpool Vs. Thanos may seem like a joke of a book, but its the funniest joke you'll read in a while. Tim Seeley really delivers a good script and hell have you laughing from cover to cover. The art is very good and complementary to the writing. Bondoc and Redmond work well together and the book is all the better for it. If you need a pick me up this week, make itDeadpool Vs. Thanos.

    I don't want to harsh your Deadpool buzz too much, because DEADPOOL VS THANOS #1is fun, and has set up the potential for even more fun, but don't look to find anything of substance here. Read Full Review

    Deadpool vs Thanos is silly, funny and enjoyable but at times feels like overkill, with everything being a joke and artwork that has small annoyances. Read Full Review

    This may have worked better as a one-shot, but the promise of a Thanos/Deadpool team-up in the next issue is worth another read. Read Full Review

    It's still easy to see why the Merc with a Mouth became such a hit, but he's overexposed and he's become a thinner version of himself over the years. "Deadpool vs. Thanos" #1 gives the character a new creative team and new concept, but they don't give the character new life, and he needs it. Read Full Review

    This one took a little while to get started for me. It seems that nobody is capable of dying because Death has gone missing. Since Thanos and Deadpool are in love with death they decide to find her and bring her back. It is a lighthearted tale like others have said and it does have some good humor to it. I am hoping that it really gets going in later installments.

    It's kinda confusing. But it makes sense but it doesn't. But at the end who cares. It's Thanos and Deadpool trying to bring back death to the marvel universe. Both are true to the core with the mannerism and art. Bondoc does a good job in bringing a cheeky art style to a lighthearted action packed book. The writing though took a little bit too long to kick off everything. Hopefully it picks up next issue.

    Tim Seeley is a good match for Deadpool, he's got that dark humour down. I like the setup so far and the fact that this is pre Marvel Now Deadpool.
