    The issue gets a 5, due in equal parts to script and artwork. It keeps the classic Deadpool feel and adds just the slightest bit of humor. For more gunshots and quips, add this to your pull list. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Hamilton Ortiz Dec 7, 2012

    Posehn & Duggan are doing a great job telling a balls to the wall action story while Tony Moore & Val Staples perfectly complement them on art and coloring duties. If you're looking for a straight up action series that will make you laugh while not taking itself too serious then Deadpool is for you. Read Full Review

    Deadpoolisnt just a fun book, theres a lot of substance as well. The book feels longer than the average comic, despite still only being 20 pages. If you have to spend your $2.99 anywhere, youll get more than whats worth it in this comic. If you cant find issue 1, jump on right here. Read Full Review

    Some runs have a strong first issue and so-so issues after that. I don't think that is going to be a problem with this series. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 23, 2012

    I completely agree with my fellow reviewer, Kelly Thompson, on her assessment that the "entire creative team seems well-assembled and completely in sync." From the opening recap page to the setup for the next issue, the story moves along and the creators deliver quite an adventure to absorb and more than enough reasons to re-read and recommend "Deadpool" #2.

    Overall, I'm pleased with where this title is going. I'm greatly entertained by the whole production, especially now that Deadpool is teaming up with a ghost version of Ben Franklin. Read Full Review

    Deadpool #2 was yet another awesome installment in the new series, staying funny and fresh with a huge glass of violence in hand. I have complete faith in the Posehn/Duggan writing team to keep making Deadpool a bold and humorous character and continue breaking free from monotony. Amazing art with a thoughtful style, and a great story to boot. I'm glad this issue doesn't take itself too seriously and assured me that this Deadpool is on my pull list to stay. Read Full Review

    Deadpool continues to be a crazy, fun ride. With plenty of action, comedy, and appeal to keep you coming back for more. One of Marvel's strongest NOW! titles. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Garry Robertson Nov 24, 2012

    Some of the Deadpool humor might just seem a bit cheesy, at times, but that just sums him up for me. Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan have done a good job, so far, balancing a good story with humor, to good effect. Moore captures the brutality and poses of Deadpool brilliantly, especially the scene with the elephant. More of the same for issue #3, please. I give this an 8/10. Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Robert Bernstein Nov 21, 2012

    Tony Moore is also a winner in this issue with his artwork. The elephant being electrocuting by Deadpool looks awesome--definitely one of the coolest things we've seen drawn in comic books this year! This issue is just as colorful as the previous issue, with colors bouncing off every page. Read Full Review

    For old fans of the Merc with a Mouth or fans looking to get back into him or people just looking for a comic thats fun, full of action and doesnt take itself too seriously and most of all is entertaining I would recommend to give this a go. *Takes off neutral hat* Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Nov 21, 2012

    Two issues in and DEADPOOL remains strong as Marvel's go-to book for absurdity. Seeing Deadpool face individual Presidents is sure to be a unique and creative experience as each battle (so far) is tailor-made to capitalize on their personalities. The overall plot is moving at a steady rate and Tony Moore's artwork is phenomenal. Overall, a solid start to Deadpool's new run and hopefully it'll remain at this level of quality. Read Full Review

    The Presidents are still undead, and Deadpool is making sure they get back to just being dead. It's not a perfect series by any means, and it's stumbled a bit out the gate, but things are beginning to mesh. The entirety of the creative team is coming together during this first arc, and while it's already a bit of a bumpy road, the kinks are beginning to get worked out. Hopefully the trend will continue and this series will head upwards towards becoming a hilarious, ridiculous and fun series that fans have come to know and expect from Deadpool and his misadventures.

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Nov 22, 2012

    There are some genuinely funny moments in this issue, but unfortunately a lot of the dialogue was too cheesy for my tastes. There was a bit of that going on in the last book too, but I was willing to let it slide as it was the opening issue and the mechanics of good characterization can take a little while to work out. I can appreciate Posehn's and Duggans attempts to keep this a darkly funny book, but sometimes the jokes are just ham-fisted. That said, I do enjoy the wacky premise and the totally nonsensical treatment of historical figures. I just wish we could get a little depth back in this character. Its a fun title, and as always Moores pencils sell the craziness and the bloodshed with great flare, but I guess I was just hoping for a little more. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, the comedy has grown tiresome already " the incessant one-liners are particularly problematic, hindering development of plot or character. And if that's your thing, by all means, enjoy. Deadpool isn't for me. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Wombat Nov 21, 2012

    Altogether, I wouldn't consider this a complete waste of three dollars... After all, it's not in just any book we can see Deadpool fight a zombified Teddy Roosevelt. In the ranking of nerd fantasy battles I think that sits almost even with Boba Fett vs. Nikolai Tesla. But I'm still going to take a pass on issue #3. Instead, I'll get my monthly dose of Danny Way's Deadpool in the upcoming reboot of Thunderbolts, which, uncultured philistine that I am, I'm sure I'm going to love.Oh, and cover artist Geoff Darrow can't draw elephants worth a pile of dog poop. But then again, neither can Tony Moore. Cheers. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jay Mattson Dec 3, 2012

    I really wanted to like Deadpool, I really did. I'm a huge fan of Brian Posehn's stand-up comedy, and I kept hearing good things about Gerry Duggan's past work. Pairing two proven funnymen with an erratically humorous character like Deadpool seemed like a slam-dunk, at least theoretically. In reality, Deadpool is one of the worst new titles I've read this year. Any attempt at humor falls flat, all uses of extreme blood and gore is unnecessary, and the narrative itself is as flimsy as the paper it's printed upon. Save your $2.99 and stay away from this book.
