    Hero Nuggets - Val "Slavic Storm" Benidze Aug 29, 2013

    This issue is packed full of action, some very breathtaking art, and for once a cohesive story that sets up a dark and gritty back story that's never been told about Deadpool. I'm really excited to learn more about Deadpool's time with Weapon Plus. Brian Posehn has already proven that he knows his Deadpool. Deadpool fans need to pick this issue up. This is non negotiable. If not, you'll be missing out on something big. Read Full Review

    New readers might have some problems with the story, especially the whole organ snatching plot line, but it's still a very solid issue. The recap page can do a good bit on catching up a potential reader, so that might be enough. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Michael Bowie Aug 31, 2013

    Quite possibly the best issue of the Marvel NOW! Deadpool to date, this is a perfect place to start if you still aren't reading this series. While they would provide a bit more insight, you don't have to have read the stories in the series' first two trades to understand what happens this issue. The scenes with Wolverine and Captain America alone should be worth the price of admission for most readers. I will consistently mark this series as, along with the likes of Hawkeye and Superior Spider-Man (don't hate), as the best books Marvel has going right now. Every issue isn't a hit, but this one definitely is. Read Full Review

    With a new art team filling in and a brand new story to start, this issue begins and ends on an odd, yet fun, note. While the drawing style is a bit rougher than the usual style of the regular art team, the writing team has a major handle of this very difficult character, and it's continuing to be a fun read.

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Aug 30, 2013

    I do like the psychological drama that comes out here, there's something definitely creepy about Butler, and Declan Shalvey's artwork is pretty kinetic and interesting – never a dull moment with this guy. My hopes for a Deadpool revival – a complete one – are ever rising. I'm actually interested in his story and not just waiting around for the next gag. This crew seems to know what's up.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Sep 1, 2013

    Jordie Bellaire is no slouch either, as his color work has a sober quality that works quite well with the clean aspect of Shalvey's lines. He use light and darkness in ways that never feel exaggerated or in the way of the story, instead stylizing the art even further for the readers to enjoy. There are, of course, some key moments where he is simply amazing, like the aforementioned two-page spread where he mostly use two colors to create a simple yet absolutely gorgeous contrast between cold and warm that makes it even prettier to look at. It may be a different take on the Merc with a mouth, yet it cannot be said it isn't an effective one as the serious take on the character and his problems makes for a gripping read nonetheless as the writers delve deeper on who the character is while Shalvey and Bellaire bring in some powerful scenes with their art. Unusual for the character, yet recommended. Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Aug 29, 2013

    While Deadpool #15 isn't as funny as previous issues, it doesn't matter, and the reason for that is that Duggan and Posehn have put together–so far–a great start to this new arc that looks to go way back in Wade's life and mine it for connections and dangers that have been stalking him for quite some time. Once you add in some great art that works with the strengths of this arc, you've got yet another fun and engaging issue of Deadpool. Then there's that sweet, sweet fake-out at the end, which was truly surprising…and I'm still not going to spoil it. Go read it! Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Mike Miersen Aug 31, 2013

    Do I reccomend this issue? Yes! It's the beginning of a new arc with little ties to the last couple, so newbies can jump in without confusion. It's an arc that's shaping up to be Deadpool on a deeper level than what we've seen before. A shame for you to miss it. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Sep 11, 2013

    Overall this is a strong start to a new story-arc on Deadpool. The individual targeting Deadpool has certainly piqued my curiosity, and it's good to see that this creative team don't just have a grasp on the funny side of Deadpool; but they can handle the emotionally damaged side too.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 2, 2013

    As with every story featuring Deadpool, the saltshaker needs to be nearby, since it is not immediately obvious what is happening in the real world as opposed to simply happening in the mangled mindscape of Deadpool's mind. This issue is the first part of five and serves as a setup to the story to come. There's not enough in this issue to stretch out to one hundred pages of comic book story, but why should Duggan and Posehn stop surprising readers now? "Deadpool" #15 is an enjoyable romp with gallows humor and fun character moments that left me laughing in spite of myself. It's more serious than the "Dead Presidents" adventures in the earlier issues of this series, but it never forgets to be a Deadpool story. It does, however, deliver a cliffhanger ending filled with tension, as Deadpool once more finds the short end of the stick. Read Full Review
