    Black Nerd Problems - Khadjiah Johnson Oct 26, 2018

    The Kibblesmith and Ortiz team pulled through and used chaos as a metaphor to establish the climate between our two protagonists. The thin line between understanding necessities and taking advantage for preservation is a conversation that leaks into our current realities. I am excited to wander into the battle these two will be forced to conquer or fail whether it is internal criticisms, fears, or just plain out fisticuffs for a misunderstanding. Read Full Review

    I'm not quite sure how Deadpool walks away from this fight successfully. I honestly expect this ends with him being a head in a jar, left alone in a closet for all eternity. Meanwhile Black Panther, yet again, saves the day and finds the cure for cancer. Read Full Review

    With Kibblesmith's excellent dialogue, Lopez Ortiz's chaotic visuals and Sobreiro's wonderful colors, Black Panther vs. Deadpool will leave you smiling from ear to ear long after putting the book down. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Dale Earl Oct 28, 2018

    This first issue in the Black Panther vs. Deadpool storyline is a good start.  While the Deadpool versus storylines have started to seem a little played out, Kibblesmith has a chance to create a story that could allow the characters really play off of one another.  Using Deadpools ability to break the fourth wall is well done here, and gives a wink to the longtime reader. All of this makes for a good start, and hopefully it will continue as the story progresses. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Aaron Jones Oct 26, 2018

    The Black Panther and the Big Red Sore. This was a great beginning to a the three-issue mini-series of your dreams. Deadpool is set on a do-gooder mission that is almost as equally important as King T'Challa's mission to cure disease. When will they figure out they're on the same side and stop bickering? It's got to happen soon because there's only 3 issues. After they part ways, Wade may have to think twice about drawing his weapon on the King for a 3rd time. This first issue did not disappoint, pick up the issue today, I laughed the whole time reading it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Oct 24, 2018

    Black Panther Vs. Deadpool #1 kicks off with a tremendous burst of creative energy. A perfect balance between serious and silly suits the book's co-stars and should do a fine job of satisfying both veteran readers and movie fans. The creators understand that this title is the essence of non-essential reading, but they do not use that as an excuse to employ less than top-notch storytelling skills. Read Full Review

    This is a tried and true Marvel formula at this point but Kibblesmith and the art team make this one is a win for Marvel. Read Full Review

    This is a great, fun comic with an unlikely pairing that works really well together in part because of how unlikely it is. Read Full Review

    I liked this story and I want to read more but I hope Ortiz can tone the facial expressions down. I'm not sure if the humor and action can survive 5 issues, but I'm willing to find out. Read Full Review

    Epicstream - Jake Vyper Nov 9, 2018

    Overall, Kibblesmith is able to balance these totally different characters so well but after considering what's on the stake and why they're fighting, their conflict looks more like a silly scene from a Monty Python film than an epic crossover.  Read Full Review

    Comic book readers can basically guess how the conflict will play out without picking it up. Read Full Review
