This comic is the embodiment of everything wrong with Marvel right now. I'm a huge Deadpool fan so I thought I'd give it a try. It was pure trash. I figured it was an obvious cash grab, but I was hoping it might be a fun, creative take the second time around. I was dead wrong. Bunn's Deadpool is nowhere near as good as Duggan's and just adds fuel to the fire for people who perceive Deadpool as bei more

If you came into this issue (or series for that matter) expecting straightforward answers to untied ends, you're gonna have a bad time. That's not King's style, and I, for one, enjoy that. Eventually, questions will be answered, but King's in no hurry to give us those answers. If you take this issue for what it is, a character study on Batman's humanity and happiness, you'll love this issue.

Hmm... I don't know quite what to think about this one. The art is amazing and my interest continues to grow in discovering the backstory of the great old one that inhabits her... but I will admit to being a bit confused by the story at the moment. Still though I'd definitely recommend this book and I'm anxious to see where they'll be going for the third arc!

I agree with your review. There was one piece of extremely cringeworthy dialogue this issue for me that I just can't get over, so I'm gonna give it an 8.

Man. This issue was deep. Great to see Lolli back on art. I hope this issue has repercussions in the Secret Empire series as a whole. I'd love to see Wade's wrath and heartbreak aimed at his hero who led him down a terrible path. This issue is up there in terms of fantastic next to Deadpool #20, also by Duggan and Lolli.

Can we stop having covers that mislead us to what the story is inside the book? This cover has little to do with what is really happening in this issue #3. This has been a trend for this series. I get that it starts with the galactic heroes but then we quickly move on. Has an old man Logan style to the art. Slowly building but to what we don't have a clue.

It has an Old Man Logan style to the art because Sorrentino does the art for both books.

Kuder's art is weird, but it is absolutely perfect for this series. It's SUPPOSED to be weird. You put him on a more down to earth title (pun intended), and I'd probably have an issue with it. But this is cosmic Marvel he's working with. Let's get weird. Duggan's writing is fun and comedic as ever. Great fit for this title.

Good issue, fun arc. My low score is based on the fact that this arc did just about nothing to further the story of the Watchmen in the DC Universe, which is how it was advertised. If this was advertised as an epilogue to Flashpoint, I'd rate it higher.
