    Deadpool fans are more than likely going to get this regardless, but for the casual Marvel fan, I want to recommend this to you as well. Deadpool's moral ambiguity aside, Acker and Blacker make this is a fun read that opens a lot about the character and gives him an almost compassionate side - even if your compassion is for somebody as psychotic as himself.

    You know how The Good, The Bad And the Ugly was emotional, serious, compelling and dark? Imagine the polar opposite of that and that's exactly what DEADPOOL ANNUAL #1 has in store for you. It's just pure levity and is sure to keep you laughing with all of the wackiness it'll throw your way. The timing of the issue's release is definitely an odd choice, but it's a nice little dose of craziness before we jump back into what's going on with Wade in the standard timeline. Read Full Review

    Acker & Blacker (Bigger & Blackerer?) get points for actually trying to quantify this whole issue canonically, which was really probably just one of Way's writing-style affectations rather than any big plan to have the extra voice in Wade's head mean something. However, they seem to see Wade as more of a surly bastard rather than his trademark wack-a-doodle before the merger, although that might just be to differentiate him from Madcap a bit more, and to make their moody conclusion more resonant. Still, it's a cute, twisted little story that befits an Annual, and they've got good gags " like Thor accidentally killing people and hurriedly claiming "They died warrior's deaths!" " and the art from Evan "Doc" Shaner is suitably balanced between comic booky and cartoony. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Dec 9, 2013

    Overall, this annual is a fun read. An accessible stand-alone story, Acker and Blacker also fill in a gap regarding Deadpool's fragmented mind, whilst also providing a lot of laughs. After reading this, I definitely hope that Wade and Madcap cross paths again soon. Read Full Review

    Overall, this was an enjoyable issue, but the jokes were still hit-or-miss. The hits were high enough that I actually went back and read some parts again, but the misses were in there often enough that this didn't make my must-read list. Still, it was a good time with zany execution " a very "Deadpool" comic, and fitting for the 2013 Annual. Read Full Review
