    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Mar 20, 2013

    I know "WTF certified" is DC's thing, but DEADPOOL is totally borrowing it with this ending! You'll never see it coming and this is sure to keep the book hugely amusing. One of the countless reasons why CABLE & DEADPOOL worked so well is because Nathan was there to balance the tone. Without spoiling anything, I can safely say it looks like we're about to get a whole lot of that again. Considering the entertaining writing, it'll hopefully be a successful new element to the book. This first story is nothing but pure comedy and crazy action. If you're looking for a complex and deep plot, you won't be pleased. But, if you're looking for some ridiculous fun, this issue's just for you. Read Full Review

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Aug 7, 2013

    This was a brilliant issue, and I can't honestly think of a better way to end such a fantastic story. It was still fun, an humorous, but it still had a very serious tone to it, due to the stakes being high. I would easily recommend this issue to anyone, as well as the entire series as if your not a Deadpool fan this will probably make you one, and current Deadpool fans that haven't tried it should also love it.

    After Joe Kelly's run, I rarely found a Deadpool I liked, although Gail Simone's is also noteworthy. Now, Posehn and Duggan's version of everybody's favorite regenerating superhero deserves to be added into that mix, with their first story arc being a success. Hopefully, Posehn and Duggan will be able to have Deadpool continue on his journey of awesomeness. Read Full Review

    Deadpool #6 does bring the intense story arc to a close, but not without a fair share of shocking developments. The writers have made sure that you'll be back for the next issue with the bomb dropped on the final page. All of the excitement, suspense and heartfelt moments make an almost perfectly balanced issue, despite not being quite as funny as the previous five. The humor was sacrificed to make some solid points and prove that Deadpool is still a relevant character. If you like having fun and violence, get reading Deadpool already. Brilliant!

    Blue Raven Comics - James Hannon Mar 24, 2013

    There were a few good payoffs in this issue to what was built up in the previous issues. I think that this is always a good sign for an ending to an arc. If there is a good finale to a story then everything you read previous is made better because of that. This will definitely be a good arc to read in TPB for that reason. This particular Deadpool story is over, but this issue sets up a number of places for Deadpool to go. Dr. Strange has a few things in store for Ol' Wadey, and our hero now has quite a few enemies within S.H.I.E.L.D. This was a great end to very good arc, and I can't wait to see what comes next.

    AIPT - Russ Mar 20, 2013

    This issue continues with the motif of Deadpool as Marvel's pariah. He's not quite good enough to be an anti-hero and not quite bad enough to be a villain, but somewhere in between and the speculation over which direction he'll take is always fascinating. We've seen this done best with writers Joe Kelly and Fabian Nicieza in the past, so hopefully Posehn and Duggan can continue elucidating Pool's inner turmoil while throwing some exciting new elements into the mix. The conclusion of this issue sees the introduction of a huge plot twist that will shake up Deadpool's comfort zone in a way we haven't seen before, so things are looking up for the future.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Mar 23, 2013

    With the conclusion of the zombie president's arc, Duggan and Posehn have shown us mastery in jokes, action and on how to write Deadpool, showing him as a badass, hilarious yet human character. They are greatly helped by Tony Moore here who gives us some of the zaniest art he ever did (on par with that Frankenstein Punisher story), giving us one of the best take on the regenerate degenerate so far.

    Digitl Noob - Russ Pirozek Mar 21, 2013

    Deadpool is really making some progress with this title, and after stepping out of the shadow of the last series for the character, has really come into its own as a title. With the next arc on the horizon, it looks like the Merc With A Mouth will be around for a bit longer, and hopefully, that's a good thing. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Michael Moore Mar 20, 2013

    It's sad to see this brilliant opener to volume 4 end, but the next issue looks very promising and I look forward to seeing how two people who love to run their mouths will mix together in one book with Deadpool and Ironman. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 20, 2013

    And even ignoring the script entirely, Tony Moore delivers some excellent visuals to cap off this storyline. His expressive characters, moody environments, and penchant for grotesque violence and slapstick humor all serve the book extremely well. I can only hope that Moore will be returning to illustrate a future story, as his presence on the book has been the central draw for these past few months. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Syndicate - Chris Mailloux Apr 3, 2013

    This story line has definitely been interesting and fit really well with Deadpool. I'm looking forward to what the writers have planned and where the Preston story line will go from here. In the end it was a funny and interesting story line and as always, it is awesome to read about Deadpool killing things. Read Full Review

    After a really outrageous first arc, I think there's a lot of fun to be had in this Deadpool series in the future. I'm pretty interested in seeing what's coming next because it might be pretty hard topping re-killing the Presidents of the United States of America. For all we know, Deadpool could go after The Presidents of the United States of America, that band from the 90s that sang about lumps and peaches. I don't see Deadpool liking them too much, so I wouldn't be surprised if they were somewhere on his hit list. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Mar 20, 2013

    The juvenile one-liners aside, this issue actually offers a few genuinely somber moments for Deadpool, as he deals with Prestons death and resigns to stopping Washington at any cost to himself. This feels like the Deadpool I know and love. There are even a few surprisingly humorous moments as well (as in, I actually laughed this time), such as Washingtons severed head being punted into the lap of the Lincoln Memorial with a stoic I deserve this. Im unsure if I have any confidence in this Deadpool-Preston business, but for the first time since issue one, I can say that this wasnt a bad book. Read Full Review
