    This issue is classic Deadpool, but it's the book's sneaky heart of gold that will really make it all worthwhile. Read Full Review

    Deadpool #5 is just a great issue. It's heartfelt, a ton of fun and the artwork brings out the cuteness, ferocity and raw emotion in wonderful ways. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 10, 2020

    Thompson has introduced us to a Deadpool who has more responsibility, but still maintains his self-deprecating charm. There's a conflict between being king and being insecure that's worth exploring, and by issue's end, you'll want more. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Jun 10, 2020

    Overall, this is an absolutely batty plot, and this chaotic issue is so wildly enjoyable. Ive only just recently jumped into this series, but I am fully invested into seeing whether Deadpool has it in him to continue managing a kingdom of monsters...on Staten Island! Read Full Review

    An excellent Deadpool story, bringing in humor, heart, violence, and baby Land Sharks. What more could you ask for? Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Jun 10, 2020

    Deadpool #5 was not the issue I was expecting it to be " it was so much better. This issue mixed emotions and tones in a way that only Deadpool is capable of, creating a reading experience with a message hidden within. It's exactly what the fans deserved and needed right now. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Corey Patterson Jun 10, 2020

    DEADPOOL #5 is one of the most engaging issues yet in the new line of Deadpool comics. Our hearts laugh, cry, and continually question Deadpool's sanity as he and Elsa attempt to save Manhattan. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Jun 12, 2020

    Kelly Thompson has the chance to write a memorable DP comic and she is not going to let this one slip. Deadpool #5 brings the action, at times bonkers visuals, and hilarious panels for days. This has always been a fun book to read, and now we might see some actual growth from the Merc with a Mouth! Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jun 10, 2020

    The best Deadpool runs strike a balance between comedic Deadpool and tragic Deadpool. With this issue's moving peek into the jester's heart, this volume stakes a strong claim on another great balancing act. There's still plenty of comedy and the monster-fighting art doesn't disappoint-- but Deadpool #5's strongest suit is its empathic portrayal of its protagonist. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jun 10, 2020

    Deadpool continues to be a complete bore to get through, and I think I will pass on it after this issue. I read Deadpool for some zany fun, pop culture references, and over-the-top action. I guess this version isn't for me. Read Full Review
