    Comics Bulletin - Steven M. Bari/Michael Colbert Sep 23, 2008

    Containing several laughs out loud moments and a fun twist or six Deadpool breaks a boundary that constrains most American comics in general and superhero comics in particular the comedic boundary. So rarely does comedy work in comics. Cartoon mayhem is where the smart money goes. Still, there is more to the jokes than lost limbs and snarky dialogue. Ultimately, the big joke is on the Skrulls for their arrogance and how ill-equipped they are to deal with a nut job like Deadpool. Deadpool's solution for the secret invasion is completely in sync with Deadpool's world. Nothing feels forced, the story and laughs flow freely. It's a pleasure to see Daniel Way bring that razor sharp internal logic to bear in a comedic way. It's an unexpected fit. Imagine Bugs Bunny and Deadpool talking about how to deal with Elmer Fudd. Bugs would dress up like a girl, but Deadpool would probably start with "Knock Knock" Read Full Review

    There's certainly nothing landmark here, but Deadpool's blatant silliness creates an appeal that should branch out far beyond the want of diehard fans. This book not only provides a much-needed breath of fresh air within a crowded field of Secret Invasion also-rans, but also seems geared to become a constant source of amusement for the foreseeable future.

    I've read plenty of Daniel Way comics, and I can't say that I've ever been a fan of his work, but his "Deadpool" is worth reading. It's a gleefully mad romp through the more ridiculous fringes of the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review
