“WHATEVER A SPIDER CAN,” PART 1 The X-Men? Pfft! Not really Deadpool’s style. Though he’s still committed to doing this “hero” thing, Wade’s more of a “lone wolf” kinda guy, out there doing his own thing. Y’know…thwp-thwp. Parental Advisory …$2.99

    Unfortunately, I wasn't very impressed by Carlo Barberi's artwork. Barberi mimics Paco Medina's energetic style fairly well, but there are enough strange qualities present that I don't enjoy the visuals nearly as much. Barberi has a tendency to draw every character with bulging necks and gangly limbs. Every single person in New York is wearing clothes about four or five sizes too big for them. Barberi also goes overboard when it comes to rendering Spider-Man's uniform. I'm all for allowing artists a bit of creative license when it comes to movement and expression in Spidey's eyes, but Barberi overdoes it. In nearly every panel, Spidey is squinting or glaring despite his supposedly rigid mask structure. Little problems like these combine to kick the visuals down several notches. Like Kelly's Deadpool/Spidey crossover, the art doesn't live up to the quality of the script. Read Full Review

    Given the high standard set by Joe Kelly and Eric Canete four months ago, a return meeting of Deadpool and Spider-Man no doubt has some fans excited and this issue is a let down with a lame plot and even lamer jokes. Read Full Review
