I don't regularly collect "Deadpool" because I find it to be wildly inconsistent, and I usually get my fill of the character from "Uncanny Avengers" and "Spider-Man/Deadpool." But I picked this up because I am fascinated with the world of Steve Rogers and the build up to "Secret Empire." And as a prelude to that, this issue delivers. I am still shocked when Cap behaves immorally, but this issue sh more

Deadpool #27

• Steve Rogers is Captain America, the bastion of all that is good.
•  He's the kind of paragon who Deadpool could really take a lesson from.
•  I'm not caught up on his recent comics, but I can't imagine anything could change that.

I'm a huge Deadpool fan, and I think the best way to use him sometimes is as the secondary or tertiary character. Too much Deadpool gets a little too over the top at times so I can see where you're coming from. Remender's run on X-Force does a fantastic job of using Deadpool as a role player, similar to the way Duggan used him in this issue.

This is a great comic. I love the creators and the art is solid. The splash pages can be a bit difficult to follow at times which made me go back and re read a number of times to figure things out. Other than that, top notch take on these characters with repercussions that make sense. It's tough to go through hell twice and leave unscathed mentally, I assume.

Oh man oh man oh man. I LOVED this issue. I was unfamiliar with the art of Frazer Irving before this issue (unless he's done other fill-in issues for this series that I didn't realize) but my goodness, I love it. The tone, the use of colors, the detail. It's everything I could have asked for in a Dr. Strange comic. Aaron's writing was witty and sardonic as ever, but the art just brought out litera more

Brubaker does a fantastic job of describing complicated relationships and Phillips does an even better job showing it. I can feel the regret, sadness, and anguish coming off Dylan and his best friend/ former lover (whose name escapes me at the moment, but don't hold it against me too much) as they part ways. The facial work is incredible and will hit anyone who's been in a similar situation as Dyl more

This was a doozie of a book. I read this issue while slightly intoxicated and it just made me feel all the feels ten fold. Some people have a problem with Batman getting injured by someone who wasn't a supervillain or something. Some people say "How could a he not see it coming? Batman would be prepared for that!"

Deadpool has been great since the issue he finally distanced himself from the first group of "Mercs for Money" and left those shenanigans for the "Mercs for Money" title.

This is an entertaining and enjoyable romp of a smash em up book. The biggest downfall of this book is the biggest upside: lots and lots of characters. It's tough to give each character their space in the pages and have their own moments. Superman had his time in the beginning pages of the book and then got lost in the commotion.

I just can't get behind King's Batman like I could Snyder's. Good issue if you like the "Bat" and "Cat" relationship, however. The art from Gerads is solid as always, though I didn't like the way he drew Selina's face in a couple of panels early on. Do you think Batman has a cushion in his bat belt? Otherwise, those two are in for a very uncomfortable session of roof sex on top of loads of diamond more
