    If you're a fan of Deadpool and you're digging the series by Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn, you really should get this Infinite Comic. This is a 13-part story that does "matter" as it will tie into the main series. The Infinite approach gives you an enhanced story with the chance to see more of Reilly Brown's art. It's a fun story. Deadpool's in London and he ends up fighting a vampire. What more could you want? Do yourself a favor and walk (don't run, you might trip) to your smart phone or tablet (or computer) and buy this book. Read Full Review

    I'm not going into more detail because this is an issue where my going into detail about anything will not do it justice. For the sheer brilliance that is the storyboard and the panelling this issue is a necessary, and I mean NECESSARY read! Any fan for comics will love this one. It is just so well made.

    Marvel is clearly taking advantage of its growing digital market, tailoring series like The Gauntlet specifically for mobile devices in its new Infinite line. These efforts open up a world of possibilities. Will clever transitions become simple animations and further blur the line between mediums? Will we have official soundtracks playing as we read our comics? I don't know, but if any of it happens alongside Deadpool's antics, I'm excited. Read Full Review

    Maybe the sequences are part of the digital compatibility the series is going for but it sure does look well with Deadpool. I just noticed I'm getting sucked into the pace while reading and laughing at the jokes and getting mesmerized by how each page looks. As the mini Deadpool in the intro says, the digital copy's worth it with all its new stuff. The story might not be that compelling yet at this point but I think it'll be interesting to see how it'll roll out, conducive to the events to happen this summer. Chimichangas! Read Full Review

    While more than a few readers might balk at the concept of spending $2.99 for a digital comic, "Deadpool: The Gauntlet" #1 ensures that readers are getting their money's worth. This issue is well-suited to the Infinite Comics capabilities and does a nice job of showcasing those while also describing Deadpool completely for new and old readers alike. This is a fun alternative to a deadwood copy from (mostly) the same creative team that delivers the regular "Deadpool" series. The floppy comic doesn't deliver panels shifting and changing to replicate motion or action, which Brown does wonderfully to the story crafted by Posehn and Duggan. I just wish the story were a little more compelling. Read Full Review
