    The flashbacks were a nice touch that allowed us to see this soft side to our almost-immortal mercenary. After being in the mercenary game for years, your outlook changes. Relationships transform, and so does your relationship to what you do. The flashbacks set a reflective mood; and the reader will often go back and forth between DP's internal reflections, silly banter, and doing his job. This is one I wish to reread over and over again. It felt like I was playing the DP video game with every page turn. This comic is a reminder to the audience so they can remember who the real Wade Wilson is. Read Full Review

    Maybe something will happen in later issues that will prove me wrong and make me reconsider whether or not this series is a must-read. Either way, if I miss an issue, I will not fret. Still, it is worth a look at if you are a Deadpool fan. Just don't expect anything too deep. Read Full Review
