    Don't worry, Deadpool, I have a feeling you won't be seeing any 1-star reviews for this one. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 10, 2013

    Declan Shalvey has proven to be an ideal fit for this more serious arc. He channels some of the cartoonish charm of past storylines, but he couples that quality with a more subdued tone and grittier texture. The action flows well, and the varied unhappy emotions are conveyed well. Shalvey has shown enough versatility with these four issues that he would be a great fit for the series even when it does return to more traditional Deadpool territory. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Michael Bowie Oct 14, 2013

    I had been worried, due to the rather narrow focus of issue #17, that this issue would be something of a waste, a bit of filler to get us from last issue's heavy action to next issue's conclusion. Happily those worries were unfounded. This issue was anything but a waste of time and it did an excellent job of fuelling my excitement for the conclusion of the arc next issue. Read Full Review

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

    The great balance between humor, action and drama along with the clean and deceptively simple work from Bellaire and Shalvey makes this issue a great chapter in this satisfying arc from Duggan and Posehn. Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Oct 9, 2013

    DEADPOOL is a really fun series, not only because it's usually funny, but because Posehn and Duggan are clearly having a great time with the book and it seems that they've been allowed to simply tell the Deadpool story that they want to tell. The results are wonderful, and this more serious than usual arc has been fantastic so far thanks not only to some well done art by Declan Shalvey, but because Posehn and Duggan have begun to explore a different side of Deadpool while paying off moments from issues past.

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Oct 16, 2013

    I'm really not sure what to say about this issue. I've been loving this story-arc so far, with it clearly showing that the Posehn and Duggan are not simply on Deadpool to write funny moments. Indeed, they have taken some really bold moves in this story-arc, and I really cannot wait to see what the future has in store for Deadpool now. Because it certainly doesn't look pretty.
