    This issue gets the highest of honor I can give it. It not only gives us a funny story but also brings back Howard the Duck in his classic form and teams him with Deadpool side by side. It's definitelysomething that makes this book worth reading. It also includes the Contest of Champions typearc that took place before Secret Warseven began. I leave the first issueexcited for the next three asthis could be the best Deadpoolmini-series in a long time and something that really fits into the canon of the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - John Ernenputsch May 21, 2015

    This is a hard review to quantify. I don't love Deadpool, but I like his character when used correctly, and I feel he is here. I am also familiar with the original Secret Wars. Add that up and you get an absolutely glowing review from me. In today's comic market I don't expect many people overall to have read a 30 year old story. While I think the issue could still be enjoyed without having read the original it does lower the score a bit. A great way to read this issue for everyone is to have the original story pulled up on Marvel Unlimited as you're reading. This allows you to make immediate visual connections that will heighten the experience. I honestly didn't know what to expect with this series, but once again I was pleasantly surprised at a Secret Wars book. That's starting to become a trend around here. If you haven't read the 1984 original you can take a half of point off my score below, and even then that still makes it a solid comic. Read Full Review

    Deadpool swears he was a part of the Secret Wars too, and so far it seems he had a pretty important role and a glorious mustache? Read Full Review

    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar May 21, 2015

    Out of all of the SECRET WARS tie-in books that I've read so far, I feel as though this one was one of the best (just might be the best). If you are a fan of DEADPOOL I suggest you pick this book up. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Myke Ladiona May 26, 2015

    The real highlight of this issue comes from the BONUS ROUND. This mini-saga of another time Earths heroes were toyed with cranks the world as Deadpool sees it to 11. In this Marvel vs. Capcom-esque battle, we move far away from the blockbuster Marvel cast of characters and really get into it. I wont spoil who shows up, but trust me itll quack you up.

    Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars stays true to the DP style, as a tie-in with Secret Wars—that doesn’t tie in at all, whatsoever…Seriously, this never happened; Deadpool just tried to change history. Even if it is Deadpool’s story within a Deadpool story, it’s still as entertaining as ever, with the clever wit and weird charm of our friend, the Merc with a Mouth. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake May 21, 2015

    Deadpool's stab at changing history mostly proves a success, Bunn and Lolli delivering a tale both entertaining and amusing. While Deadpool himself can at times overrun the narrative, the issue's overall enjoyment hinges on the book's chuckle worthy script and great art. Read Full Review
