    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Sep 11, 2013

    Oh, and if you're one of the people who dropped this book because you weren't a fan of the humor, I implore you to give this series a second chance and pick up issue #15. Seriously, I rarely use "implore," so that should help emphasize just how much I mean it. Read Full Review

    Hero Nuggets - Val "Slavic Storm" Benidze Sep 12, 2013

    I don't have anything but praise for Brian Posehn's run on Deadpool. Issue #16 is funny, dark, and finally something to be taken seriously. It's a good time to be a Deadpool fan. I'm giving this issue a gleaming 5/5 Nuggets. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Michael Bowie Sep 14, 2013

    Look, I can't say enough good things about this issue and the current story arc as a whole. Frankly, if you're interested enough in Deadpool to be reading this review, then you really should be reading the current issues. By no means have I read everything Deadpool, but I believe issues #15-16 of this series may be the best that I have read. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Whiting Sep 11, 2013

    Declan Shalvey's art is magnificent. His pencil strokes are thick and sexy, his details razor-sharp, and his backdrops haunting, ethereal, and atmospheric. His talent is evident in every raw sinew that swells from beneath Wade's boiled flesh; in the dynamic choreography of each ruthless fight scene; in the anguish or hatred evoked in every facial expression. The dude's quickly becoming one of my favorite artists: His work reminds me of a more refined John Romita Jr., only far less distorted and caricaturish and with a style that is very much his own. 9.0 Story arc that's compelling and feels important.Beautiful art by Shalvey.Deadpool ain't nothin' to f*ck with.They keep saying they cured Deadpool's cancer? I thought it merged with his healing factor? Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Sep 14, 2013

    Jordie Bellaire is worthy of the same praise in this issue, as the dark mood is shown perfectly through her colors. The heavy use of dark shadows and deeper colors tones really make some of the interactions between some characters stand out with their colorization. There are even some moments that stand out, like the page where Kin shows how he has been trained with his powers, which use some very simple colors to provide for a powerful moment in terms of visual storytelling. Bellaire is really good here as well. The dark and much more psychological take on the character may not be for everyone, yet the quality of the script, the action and the art cannot be denied as The good, the bad and the ugly continues its excellent take on the Merc with a Mouth.

    Digitl Noob - Russ Pirozek Sep 13, 2013

    While this is definitely a new look for Deadpool, but so far, so good. It's been a fun ride thus far, and with Shalvey and Bellaire subbing in for this issue, it's looked a bit rougher, but still great. The story has some pacing issues, but it's been a fun ride thus far. While there's still plenty of time for this arc to pick up, the combination of a much more present Agent Preston and a break-out story makes for an entertaining ride. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Adam X. Smith Sep 13, 2013

    On top of that, the new artist Declan Shalvey works well with the fine balance between humour and grit that the aforementioned arc title invokes. This is a definite "buy" recommendation, on the proviso that you back-order #15 if you haven't already. Whenever I have my doubts about the whole Marvel NOW! rebrand, I'm reminded of this book and then I realise it's not all bad after all. Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Sep 12, 2013

    DEADPOOL #16 may continue to limit the laughs compared to what we're used to, but when the story isthis compelling, there's not much point in arguing. Even still, there's still laughs to be had, but more time is spent on pulling Wade deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole, taking the reader along with him. If you've stuck with the book since the beginning, there's a lot of reward in the emotional beats, but even if you're just getting into the book, there's a whole lot to like here. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Sep 17, 2013

    Deadpool #16is a very intriguing issue. Butler's horrific schemes are outlined to the reader, whilst the true scope of his operations and motives are still not quite fully revealed. More importantly, it seems that Deadpool's entire life looks set to be turned upside down. Or is it all just Butler's manipulation? If all this uncertainty isn't enough to get you excited for next issue, then I don't know what is. Read Full Review
