What do you get when you take one cynical anthropomorphic duck (named Howard) and cross it with the smelliest (and most annoying) mercenary in the Marvel Universe? DEADPOOL THE DUCK! When Deadpool is sent on a mission from S.H.I.E.L.D. to capture a high-profile E.T. that is rampaging across the high plains, the snatch-and-grab turns out to be much more complicated than the Merc with a Mouth anticipated. One unfortunate wrong-place-at-the-wrong-time accident later leaves Deadpool and Howard fighting for control of the cutest mercenary the Marvel Universe has ever seen! Brought to you with words by Stuart Moore (CLOAK & DAGGER, THANOS: DEATH SE more

    Plus, there's that special guest star, who shall remain nameless because it's a complete surprise when they enter the story. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Jan 6, 2017

    I'm not the biggest Deadpool fan. Its only in the past few years that Ive dared read any of his stories. Not out of fear, but out of apathy. I held onto a job at a movie theater so I wouldnt have to pay to see the movie. Since Marvel NOW! (the first version) I've been more apt to take a shot and give Deadpool a read. Occasionally, like this book, Ive even dared to spend my own money on those chances. Thankfully, Moore is thematically on track with Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehns work. Fans of those books will certainly enjoy this one. But be warned, Deadpool the Duck is not for everyone. If youre allergic to Deadpool, apathetic to his existence, or have a budget that would cause a favorite book to be missed if you bought this one, its probably not for you. If youre looking for zany fun and more references to mothballs than any other comic on the rack this month, well then, true believer, Deadpool the Duck just might be the book youre looking for.

    All-Comic - Matthew Strackbein Jan 4, 2017

    Perhaps surprisingly, this is a beautiful book and a pleasurable reading experience. And this is only Part One, so if this brand of comic book comedy is for you then rest assured theres more to come. Hats off to the creative team and everyone involved for doing the book justice and for taking it serious, if only so the completely insane nature of the storycan shine through appropriately. As if that wasn't enough, there's a few awesome variant covers to choose from. So, what are you waiting for? It's Deadpool the Duck for God's sake! Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Jan 5, 2017

    The artwork displays a great level of expression when it comes to Deadpool and Howard, utilizing impressive detail to bring their feelings to life. The background detail is missing at times, but you barely notice since it's such a character driven display. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Jan 4, 2017

    The only issue I have is how long it takes from the initial set up of the joining of Howard andDeadpool to the act itself – we clearly know it's going to happen, so why take your time doing it? Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jan 4, 2017

    Deadpool the Duck #1 won't be for everyone, but it's not just for Deadpool fans either. Stuart Moore and Jacopo Camagni take the best parts of both characters and find a way to use them in unison, culminating in a surprisingly strong and easily enjoyable debut. Some pacing issues prevent it from being and out and out hit, but with a strong premise and great, character driven art, it's certainly a fun one. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jan 4, 2017

    Silly and over the top, Deadpool the Duck combines two of the most over the top Marvel characters and hopes for the best. I'm holding out for more humor, but this issue does set things up quite well. Read Full Review
