    Deadpool #2 was a surprising mix of events and emotions, but the end result was something new and yet so utterly Deadpool. The decision to add new characters (mostly cameos from other series) was an excellent call, as Deadpool is at his best when he has people to interact with. Read Full Review

    The new series finds its stride early in Deadpool #2, taking the wildly fun concept established in its opening to new depths with the help of a couple of well known Marvel characters, proving this isn't just another irreverent Deadpool series! Read Full Review

    It's an interesting premise to begin with" Deadpool as king of, well, anything. King of Monsters perhaps seems about right. The issues raised in this comic and the direction it's heading look to do what I really like about Deadpool comics" they can play the humour card left right and center, but at the same time cover some pretty serious issues.

    The Daily Fandom - Megan Prevost Jan 11, 2020

    It's fairly good and captures the essence of Deadpool well, but it kind of reads all over the place and it can be quite messy. Maybe that's simply because Deadpool is all over the place. However, I will continue reading the series because I loved the first issue, and the second issue was still enjoyable. If you're a fan of Deadpool, you should definitely read this new installment.

    But, Wade has a separate &^%*storm on his hands, thanks to Elsa Bloodstone and Dollar Store Kraven. Which might mean Deadpool #3 will have a lot of action. Read Full Review

    Kraven the Hunter as a villain is an interesting choice here, and so far I'm still waiting on the big hook to really draw me into this conceit. That said, everything else is just so delightful, and I still can't get enough of it. Read Full Review

    While this new series nails the Merc with a Mouth, it could set itself up for a future tumble. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Cole Jan 13, 2020

    The artwork for the busier panels could be better and the humour wasn't to my taste but the story in this issue is interesting and the character work was on point. A decent issue overall. Read Full Review
