    Newsarama - David Pepose Jan 20, 2016

    This isn't the first time that Deadpool has mined comic book history for some pointed gags, but every time this series does it, it always feels like a surprise. Dugan and Koblish have so much more to offer than the caffinated hijinks that will define Deadpool, particularly with his movie due to hit cineplexes soon. Issues like this, however, prove that Marvel's class clown has more depth than his jokes might let on. Read Full Review

    Once again, Gerry Duggan's Deadpool run thrives by downplaying comedy in favor of drama. What seems at first like a goofy little side-story winds up being a sobering look at the future of Wade Wilson and his loved ones in the year 2099. Bring on more Deadpool 2099! Read Full Review

    And seriously, why the paper used here is the rather inferior type? If this comic worth less a dollar, then I would just ignore that, but it is still priced a rather expensive $3.99. No wonder why many are fed up to shift their body and souls to indie comics that have the same price, but the overall quality is way superior than this and many present ongoing Marvel titles. Well, it's Deadpool we're talking about! Sigh, Nonetheless, Deadpool #6 kicks off the 25th Anniversary hype that will actually formalize next month, and another set of new characters to be included in the quarter of the century canon of this Fourth-Wall Master Breaker. Of course, some serious moments are highlighted here; toning down the same hilarity and boisterousness we are so familiar with this degenerating funny series. Finally, the visual department doesn't fail either too. So, my fellow chimichanga eaters, let's salivate and devour this sixth chapter right now! Read Full Review

    Deadpool #6 may not have been the exciting journey into the future that I hoped for, but it does manage to build upon some of the work that Gerry Duggan has delivered over the last few of years. It also gives us a mysterious premise, leading nicely into the 25th Anniversary issue. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Mark Hassenfratz Jan 31, 2016

    Overall, I felt this was an issue that missed its mark. The setting made all other elements of the issue feel hollowed out. I felt it became less about the relationship between Wade and his daughter and more about showing off the flashy future. I feel like there's a lot to be done with a character as screwed up and hilarious as Deadpool, but those expectations simply weren't met in this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Dusty Good Jan 26, 2016

    I'm not sure if Marvel is just killing time before the Deadpool movie launches or if this storyline is going to tie up some hanging plotlines. (I'm guessing no on that one) One thing is for sure, this can NOT be the book that new fans discover after they leave the cinema, they will leave this title faster than they picked it up. Changes better be in the works at Marvel… and I'm not talking 2099 kind of future either, I'm talking a major overhaul. Read Full Review

    This issue is another of the sidestory issues that are building the huge world of Deadpool- last it was the poorly translated Spanish issue involving Massacre, now its Deadpool 2099. Being that my first time reading comics ran concurrently with the 2099 stories at Marvel, I always like to see that time be referenced (or in this case, lampooned) by the main Marvel Universe. I like that we see the female Deadpool 2099 doing lots of cray-cray stuff, and that Wade Wilson is still in the picture. I loved the big twist reveal to ‘Poolie 2099’s identity- which I did NOT see coming. The artwork on this issue is really solid, and I cant wait to see more of this crazypants new Deadpool Corps to really start to unleash the insanity. This has been a really fun and interesting series and I still don’t feel like the book suffers without Brian Posehn’s humor, and I am really excited to see what kind of crazypants stuff is in store for the next issue, which is the 25th anniversary special for Deadpool, which I am sure will be all sorts of coco-banana-bonkers.

    It appears to be a story that takes place in between the arc in present day but this Deadpool 2099 just doesn't seem that interesting to me. I'm only interested to see how the Wade Wilson Deadpool made it to 2099. I don't really care about the new female Deadpool
