    Patrick Zircher's art is clearly impacted by the arrival of the UDON studio, but for the most part the two styles merge together quite well, as Patrick Zircher brings a greater level of detail to the book, while UDON brings a smoother sense of motion to the book's action sequences. In the end the book looks fantastic, as we open with a great bit of action as Deadpool battle a small army of rent-a-cops, and this is nicely followed by the X-Men entrance into the action, as the art does a wonderful job of announcing the team's arrival using their powers. Now the battle between Cable and the Six-Pack was a bit confusing, but I suspect this was intentional, as the dialogue would seem to suggest that Cable had this group completely off their game. Still the scene where Cable teleports Anaconda halfway across the country could've been more clearly presented. I did rather enjoyed the X-variant of Deadpool's costume though, thanks largely to Wade's horrified reaction shot. Read Full Review
