    If you have been reading Deadpool this far, then you really have no reason to drop the book now. If you haven't been reading this run on Deadpool then what the hell is wrong with you? Read Full Review

    Digitl Noob - Russ Pirozek May 8, 2013

    With the supernatural vibe the book has taken, the premise of the current run of Deadpool is taking an odd but entertaining turn. With fun writing (though the jokes seem to be hit or miss at point) and some great artwork, this is a great book for fans of not only the character, but of the supernatural element as well. This is a solid entry into the canon ofDeadpool, and judging from the current popularity and quality of the title, it's not looking to change any time soon. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman May 8, 2013

    Man, this was not a good issue for Michael! I think the plot with Preston and Vetis deserves plenty of attention, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little disappointed there was no follow-up to the organ thieves. Personal gripes over Wade's morals aside, this story is a huge improvement over the first one when it comes to plot and character development. It's a bit lacking in the action department, but I think it's fair to say we had more than enough of that in the 'Undead Presidents' story, so I'm greatly appreciating the bigger focus on the overall narrative instead of stabby, stabby, boom, boom. However, I won't complain if we see Deadpool show off how lethal he is. In fact, I'd praise it. I really miss the days of Wade having the skill to give Wolverine a brutal fight. So please, bring back the skills, Gerry and Brian! Read Full Review

    So, overall, maybe not the best issue of the current run, but definitely a strong outing and very enjoyable. It definitely left me looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere May 11, 2013

    While the book does show a too great change in tone after the first half of the book, it would be hard not to like such an earnest attempt at deeper characterization on this title. With Hawtorne and Staples bringing their talent in the mix, it makes it doubly harder not to appreciate what the title is able to show. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 8, 2013

    But sadly, while this series is doing a lot right and building well from the initial premise of Deadpool vs. Zombie Presidents, the lack of humor remains a sore point. The book is generally fun, but not very funny. It continues to rely too much on limp pop culture references and not enough on genuine, situational comedy. It's not enough that Wade can find a movie to reference in every other panel. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed May 9, 2013

    Finally, this book has struck a nice balance: Gore and jokes, magic and craziness, and a nice undercurrent of intrigue to keep things moving. Read Full Review
