    Deadpool is a playful character, and Bunn is the best there is at using him to play with everything from literary history to the nature of human existence. This issue is another strong start to the next go around the playground. I look forward to more jokes at the expense of venerated zombie-related institutions, be they film or print. Im also genuinely curious to see whats become of the world while Wade was farting in his sleep. Treat yourself to some horror humor and give this a read. Read Full Review

    All and all this book was very enjoyable and read very smoothly. Anyone that likes The Walking Dead will find the book familiar in a good way. The humor lands more times than not and the art is very pleasing to the eye. Read Full Review

    THE WALKING DEADPOOL NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEADPOOL is off to a great start. The clever coloring is very enjoyable and compliments the tone of the book extremely well. Despite a bit of exposition, Bunn gets things moving quickly and we're hit with some awesome action and two plot points that leave us with quite a few questions. Now I'm legitimately curious to see where this book will take us next. My fellow Deadpool fans, do yourself a favor and check this one out. Read Full Review

    Deadpool fans are sure to get a kick out of this story. I don't consider myself a fan of Deadpool in the least, but this story is sickly funny and beautifully drawn. Deadpool has hit the saturation point for me, but I find myself compelled to continue on with "Night of the Living Deadpool" so long as Cullen Bunn and Ramon Rosanas deliver work like this.

    I have told many friends that the only way you won't like this title is if you hate zombie parodies. While many parts of this comic are distinctly Deadpool some parts are eerily similar to Robert Kirkman's comic, The Walking Dead and other zombie comics. But if anyone can do a parody and make it their own it's Deadpool. From cover to cover there isn't a boring moment in the issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 16, 2014

    Visually, this issue stands out thanks to the decision to rely largely on a black and white palette aside from Deadpool himself. It creates a stark contrast that catches the eye. I would have liked to see more texture and grit with the gray tones, however. At times, the world Deadpool occupies is too simple for its own good. Read Full Review

    If you love Deadpool or zombies or both then this book is for you! It remains to be seen if this is Marvel's main Earth or another universe which is more likely, but either way I expect Deadpool to run into a few familiar faces before the series ends. The unique aspect of the zombies in this book, and no I won't tell you what that is, is very intriguing and I hope they actually utilize it and not regulate it to a one off joke now and again. Night of the Living Deadpool may not be an original concept, it may not be innovative, but it is fun. I recommend it, just not too highly. Read Full Review

    First thing you'll notice about this book is the black & white & red color scheme, which works very nicely. Who hasn't woken from a food coma and were left wondering what events occurred while passed out? There are a ton of shout outs and quotes from films in this that make it worth the read. I thought what they did with the zombies was interesting and I am curious how that will play out over time. Overall, a good start.
