‘POOLPOCALYPSE NOW: CUE ARMAGEDDON The Deadpool Corps embark on the universe-spanning mission that only they can accomplish.

Enter: Headpool, Kidpool, Dogpool and Lady Deadpool – and it’s off to the rescue, right? Not so fast. Turns out another Elder, the Champion, isn’t quite sold on this new super-team.

    I didn't read one issue of Prelude to Deadpool Corps, and I pretty much understood everything going on in this first issue. If you like Deadpool and have been following him around for the past couple of years, you'll love the book. If you're interested in the series and just Read Full Review

    As you can tell from the above, I'm not a fan of Deadpool Corps. As a Deadpool fan myself, I'm used to accepting occasional to frequent mediocrity with the character, but that's not the case anymore. With three ongoing titles at the moment, you don't have to settle for something this bland, since Daniel Way is doing a much better job. I could hope for improvement here, but I can only see the quality worsening as the novelty of the concept wears off. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Brittany Summers Apr 8, 2010

    Although this book has its moments (and the moments it has are quite funny), it's an unnecessary addition to an already Deadpool-saturated comic rack. And the fact that there are four unnecessary Deadpool-wannabes cluttering up the issue and distracting from its star only adds insult to injury. Unless you're a Deadpool collector, stay away. And even if you are, at $3.99, it's just not worth your time. Read Full Review

    Why is Marvel throwing several metric tons of "Deadpool" comics at readers? After reading this, I feel I can say that the answer is not, "Because they have so many great comics starring the character waiting to be published." This feels like rushing any old comic out to make a quick buck, pure and simple. If this is the best they can do for a special mini-series celebrating the character, it's time to start publishing a whole lot less of "Deadpool." Read Full Review
