Deadpool has been beaten badly. Who could have managed to best the Merc with a Mouth? The dumbest member of…the Intelligencia?! Guest-starring Taskmaster!

    As I always say with Deadpool issues: this is funny. But at the same time it can be quite serious. Wade even sounds smart here and there. The story line is going well. I like seeing Deadpool take on the challenges of being a mercenary as a mere mortal with no healing factor. Read Full Review

    There has been debate how long Deadpool's current state of not having a healing factor will last. It's a great twist to change up the typical Deadpool story but you can't help but shake the feeling that it has to be a temporary change. Deadpool has to change the way he works and seeing him come up with an attempt at a solution is almost scary because it means Deadpool is actually thinking. Shawn Crystal's art is entertaining and we're treated to another trippy Dave Johnson cover. You have to hand it to Daniel Way for being able to stick with Deadpool for so many issues and continue to tell good stories rather than fall back on simple silly stories. As long as Daniel Way is writing Deadpool, we know we'll keep getting stories that Deadpool deserves. Read Full Review

    It's hard to score a book like this. The artwork is exciting and laden with genuine comedy while the story is daft and utterly devoid of successful humor. This issue gives every indication that the new status quo for the series' title character will suffer the same fate as the previous three or four developments in Way's run: interminable belaboring followed by a complete reversal which negates any progression made to that point. I offer my most sincere apologies to Shawn Crystal because his work is well-crafted and is a natural fit for the title. Unfortunately, Way's script is so bad, I can't recommend this book.
