Stupid issue. Absolutely stupid. It made zero sense. If Valofax had the power to get rid of the hordes of dead army just by saying I release you then why didn't the sword do that last issue before his granddaughter was even taken???

The art was detrimental to this issue. Salva Espin's art is very good, however, I do not believe it's a great choice for this Deadpool arc. The art is too light and colorful for what should be a forboding and impactful storyline. I am not a big fan of Shiklah so I hope this mini crossover puts her back in her coffin for good.

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

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
