    If you're interested I wrote, produced, and performed a post-apocalyptic action adventure podcast called KQKW Calling that you can listen to here. Read Full Review

    DEADPOOL BI-ANNUAL #1 is really, really fun and looks great, but it's a bummer it has zero impact whatsoever on the main narrative (unless Brute Force becomes a big part of the main ongoing, then I'll happily eat my words). If you can afford to spend $4.99 on some very entertaining laughs and all kinds of wacky violence, then have at thee and prepare to feel good. But for everyone else, it looks like you won't miss out on any noteworthy developments if you have to skip this one. Read Full Review

    That said, the issue is good fun to read. It's wacky and it's nutty. There's also a guest appearance by Phil Coulson, which is nice! Read Full Review

    Comedy is subjective. Some of you probably love Deadpool's specific brand of humor, but I know I don't. Still, there's no denying the sense of fun found throughout this Bi-Annual issue. Someone let Scheer and Giovannetti off their leashes, and Brute Force out of their cages, making for one silly, but awesome, comic book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 17, 2014

    Stamped with a fairly steep pricepoint, but loaded with snappy, Deadpool dialogue like, "Great! I'm much better at killing than capturing," "Deadpool Bi-Annual" #1 is a fun, end-of-summer romp that is as insubstantial and sugary as Kool-Aid. Packed with pop culture references stretching from Voltron to A-Team and returning Brute Force to the Marvel Universe, this comic book is sure to please Deadpool fans, die-hard and pedestrian. After all, something like this only happens twice a year. Or maybe three times. Read Full Review

    A fun ride - the writers make great use of the leeway they've been afforded with Deadpool, insofar as gratuitous zany antics being considered par for the course with this particular character. However, as is often the case with annuals, the events that transpire are, ultimately, inconsequential - nothing new is brought to the Deadpool table. Therefore, anyone who has hitherto been unconvinced by Deadpool probably isn't going to have their mind changed by this offering. Moreover, if you take into account the $4.99 price point, this book is ideally suited to longtime Deadpool fans, or anyone who is up for a wacky, no-strings-attached chuckle.
