    This issue makes Deadpool more important and relevant than ever. It's a one shot anyone can enjoy that will have an impact on people's lives to boot. It's a must read because it's funny, but also because it contains a very important, heartfelt message. Bravo. Read Full Review

    I really hope that future issues will stick to this formula of a undemanding plot, because it lets characters do the storytelling. A character like Deadpool could be put into any scenario and produce an entertaining narrative. Hopefully positive reception of this issue will reinforce this kind of storytelling for DEADPOOL in the future. Read Full Review

    This is a fun and compelling read that isn't afraid to allude to the underlying tones of depression and sadness. Read Full Review

    While an issue of Deadpool saving a suicidal girl may not sound great, it really was just that.  Seeing Deadpool do his best and then realize his best just wasn't good enough (that should be a song!) put a smile on my face and made my day.  I can't say this story had a happy ending, but it did have a real ending.  In a book known for it's jokes and gross-out humor, this issue was a very pleasant surprise.

    Coming out during the same week as World Mental Health Day, Deadpool #20 might be the sweetest and most endearing story featuring the Merc With a Mouth that I've ever seen. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Robbie Pleasant Oct 14, 2016

    Balances the humor and the heart nicely, backed up by strong, solid art. But most importantly, it could very well come at a time in someone's life when it's just what they needed to read. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 13, 2016

    Over the course of 2016, this series has seemed intent on testing the limits of just how many standalone interlude issues one series can support. But as much as I'd like Deadpool to move forward into the Marvel NOW era and resume Wade's feud with Madcap, it's tough to complain about an issue with as much heart as this one Read Full Review
