    Duggan weaves an excellent tale here, scripting Deadpool into less of a caricature and more so humanizing him than other writers have. The scenes with 'Pool and Rogue are excellent, Deadpool revealing his daughter to Rogue and asking her to look out for the kid should something ever happen to him. The book's high points are mostly in these quiet scenes between the two. I have rarely even liked a Deadpool comic, much less been left fiending for the next issue. Keep it up, guys, this is great stuff! Read Full Review

    Deadpool's hunt for Madcap is no closer to being over, but at least we know he loves his daughter. He even enlists Rogue's help in looking out for her. Apart from that, there's not much to take away from the story at this point. Read Full Review

    I imagine it's not an easy task for a writer to make one of Marvel's goofiest characters someone you can truly feel for. However that's exactly what Gerry Duggan is able to do here, with surprisingly great effect, while keeping you anticipating the stories return in Marvel Now. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 15, 2016

    This marks about the third issue in a row where the Civil War II banner is completely unwarranted. Instead, writer Gerry Duggan focuses on capping off this troubled phase in Wade's career and building towards his next inevitable showdown with Madcap. It's a quiet, somber issue, but somber is something Duggan has always done particularly well on this series. Read Full Review

    This issue has the same problems as previous ones--the elements are in place, they just aren't being used well. Read Full Review
