•  Deadpool finds himself in the middle of a twisted rivalry between two competing amusement parks!
•  But it's not all fun and games when one pernicious porker procures a plethora of...dang it, I can't think of a synonym for "big honkin' weapons" that starts with "P."
•  It's a carnival of carnage! Buy the ticket, take the ride!

    All in all, this issue is yet another example of why Young's Deadpool really exceeds when thrown completely out of his element. Read Full Review

    Guns n Piglets With Deadpool being the anti-hero that he is, this issue honestly made me hype. By like page five I internally shouted “DEATH TO CUTE THINGS”. And honestly, if there was anything that I think deserves to be tainted is the idea that cuteness cannot live within the same paradigm of destruction. The Young-Klein team helped me understand Deadpool even more as a being who is consistently at battle with his own titles. I'm extremely excited for what this will bring to future issues.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Branden Jan 5, 2019

    As an overall effort for a one-shot comic book Scottie Young pulled off something incredibly enjoyable here. He was able to take an issue with a premise that essentially boils down to Mascot murder, mix in a little heart, and a lot of humor, and with some solid contributions from a Nic Klein on art, put out one of the more enjoyable individual issues of a Deadpool comic I've read in a long long time. Like I said previously the shorter stories really have been working for this series and I hope to keep seeing more. Read Full Review

    Another issue of Deadpool that gave us a definite start and finish to his latest shenanigans. This was a mission for the books for everything ridiculous, violent, and unfortunate for the Merc With a Mouth who crossed paths with the one person you wish he could remember. Part of me wants to call it a dirty move from this creative team, but at the same time is it great to know that certain things have not been overwritten. Read Full Review

    Hopefully, Young doesn't cut things short on this Zaggy v. Deadpool battle, because as mockable as it is, I would love to see how Wade roasts this hog. Read Full Review

    Deadpool #8 brings the outrageousness and ridiculousness you could only ever read in a Deadpool comic. Read Full Review

    This was okay, but I dunno, I don’t really care about his daughter and it’s still trying so hard.

    After really getting annoyed with the last issue because of the one-shot format this series is going with, I was not expecting to like this issue one bit. But of course, they turned it around, making me look dumb in the process. You really can't do anything with characters like Silly Seal and Ziggy Pig anymore. Unless you give them to some insane creator that redefines comics with them... So to have them show up in a Deadpool comic is really the best way to go. I like my cheery animal cartoons being turned into grumpy things, so having Silly Seal enlist Deadpool to kill Ziggy Pig's cousin Zaggy Pig, a drug kingpin, is really fucked up and I really like it all the same. But what really makes this work is that Deadpool's daughter Ellie is in more

    It's a pretty good story, but the amount of credit Skottie Young expects for using Ellie is both obvious and distasteful.

    Is there a point to this series?! Every issue is completely random and pointless. I have no idea where or if there is even a direction to this plot. 8 issues in and there is absolutely no point to the story. They are mildly entertaining. I get Deadpool is supposed to be funny and random. But come on, this is just ridiculous. Wasting money in hopes Deadpool becomes good again. Bring back joe Kelly.
