    Deadpool is indeed back in business. It seems that his time being a big star superhero has been put on halt for the Merc With a Mouth getting back to his roots. This first issue was action-packed, beautifully violent, exposed, witty, and just about anything that you would associate with Deadpool in general. If you are looking for humor without the need for sympathy, then this is the book that needs to be in your pull-list. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chris Berto Jun 13, 2018

    Reboots or new #1s in established comic runs can be hit or miss at best, but the team behind Deadpool #1 appears to be firing on all cylinders. By leaning heavily into the characters self aware nature, Skottie is able to establish a fresh start for both newcomers and series veterans alike. Fans of the Merc with a Mouth should definitely give Deadpool #1 a chance. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Khadjiah Johnson Jun 8, 2018

    I would also love to see more linking between Deadpool's thoughts. Though his character is known to be random and it adds on to his likability, the travel between consciousness needs to be tightened. I loved traveling in-between his soliloquies and hearing him create scenarios. I saw how these scenarios faintly linked together with the loneliness of his condition, which was initially a beautiful add-on. With this, I believe that the writer should take the risks that is there. Either tighten up the linking between DP's mind or make it so random that it makes the humor jarring. Deadpool presents plenty risks that could be taken. There will be much to gain, from taking the character through that journey. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 11, 2018

    This comic isn't perfect but there's enough here to show that Skottie Young and the art team can create a great series when they find their footing. Nic Klein's quality artwork is already something to look forward to. Where this comic succeeds most is in its role as a jumping on point for new fans. Whether fans of Gerry Duggan's previous run with this character will be satisfied remains to be seen but I'm optimistic they will given enough time.  Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Joseph Kime Jun 12, 2018

    Generally, Deadpool 2018 could be a good time. It hasn't shown itself in its best light so far, harbouring many issues that plague a middle-of-the-road story, but I have faith that with the love it deserves, this reboot of Wade Wilson's pottymouthed mercenary could be a corker.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 5, 2018

    It can't be easy, launching a character with as much pressure and expectations as Deadpool - both because of the character's box office legs, as well as Gerry Duggan's record-setting five-year-run with the Regenerating Degenerate. So with that in mind, it's perhaps not surprising that Young and Klein are going to take some time finding their feet, let alone filling these massive shoes. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Connor Christiansen Jun 5, 2018

    There are signs for potential throughout this first issue that still give me hope for this series to blossom into a beautiful, violent, and hilarious butterfly of a book. The art direction is great, the supporting cast is wonderful, and some jokes really land. Unfortunately, most the jokes miss and there's a forced attempt to make this Wade more like movie Wade. This first issue is best summed up by Wade himself: "I know there's a joke there, but I can't find it." Read Full Review
