    You know why it's hard to recommend a Deadpool book to someone? Mainly because you never can tell just what version of Deadpool they might like or what kind of story you are going to get. Thankfully Rob Liefeld and a crack team of professional Deadpool fans have solved that problem for you, and produced Deadpool: Bad Blood. Now no more will you have to agonize over a rack at your comic shop, sweating over what will be the perfect trade to give your friend. Just pick up Deadpool: Bad Blood and let the ammo pouches, dynamic artwork, and skewering wit do the rest. Read Full Review

    If you're looking for a brutally good time, call Deadpool: Bad Blood. This, Deadpool's first original graphic novel, is one hell of an entertaining read that fans will love. Read Full Review

    If the story was fun and entertaining then I may not have noticed all the errors and artistic shortcuts as much, but because the story failed to deliver for me I found myself looking more for these errors then I did just enjoying the art for what it is. Liefeld has never been a student of anatomy, but I still loved his work. Here, while there were certainly scenes and pages that captured that nostalgic feel for me, there were too many glaring mistakes in the art. I'd be more OK and accepting if this was a $3.99 book, but this OGN is $25, and for that price it made me feel bad about my purchase. Even if you love Liefeld's work and Deadpool, I'd still stay away from this unless you're getting it heavily discounted. For sure there are scenes and pages that will make you smile, but the uninteresting story and minimalist nature of the art may make you regret this comparatively expensive purchase as much as I did.

    Deadpool: Bad Blood is a graphic novel geared very much towards fans of the character's earliest adventures, and clearly the creative team are aware of that fact. The book does indeed succeed in recapturing a bygone era, warts and all. But ultimately, Bad Blood serves as a reminder of how far Deadpool has come in the decades since his debut. Read Full Review
