Frank Castle has an unstoppable will - a powerful drive to punish those who do wrong, rooted in the tragic killing of his family. Wade Wilson has an unstoppable mouth - an unthinking knack for annoying everyone around him, rooted in thinking he's funny. Both men, however, are among the deadliest on the planet. When they find themselves in disagreement over the criminal known as The Bank, they're in for one of the most brutal fights of their lives! Can Frank kill Wade over and over without ever dying once himself? Or will Wade bug him until he welcomes death?

    This is an even better second issue that plays with the naivete of Deadpool well. Read Full Review

    Van Lente provides a great story and the Perez and Redmond artwork complements his words perfectly. There are no wasted bubbles or panels and everything that is done is done deliberately and serves its purpose of moving the story along keeping the reader engaged and leaving us wanting more. Round 2 of Deadpool vs Punisher is just as intense and fun as the first issue and, if Van Lente keeps this momentum up I'm sure the finale of this arc will make your head explode in the best possible way.

    The artwork of George Prez is great and i was highly surprised by the details of how gory he can be. Great detail when Deadpool sliced the intestines and head of his enemies during the sword fight with Don. Another positive detail is the great coloring by Redmond that turned this artwork really "smooth" and pleasant read/watch. Read Full Review

    It's not the instant comedy of the Spider-Man/Deadool comic, but there is definite potential here. Read Full Review

    Turns out the 'winner per issue' dynamic is strange given that Deadpool has a high-level healing factor. Read Full Review

    So far this series has been fun. I find Deadpool quite annoying, but this book does a good job of playing off the silliness of Wade and seriousness of Frank. I really liked this issue as it had a lot of action and great art. I will be definitely picking up the rest to see how it ends.

    I love how Frank's reactions are when he meets up with commmon Deadpool criminals. This is an interesting and gory mystery story with great cameos. And I love the villain who is coming up next. The art of Perez and Redmond are spot on and the writing of Van Lente is perfect of seriousness and zaniness.

    Van Lente is developing excellent chemistry between these characters. The Punisher makes a good straight man to Deadpool's antics and Deadpool makes a good pastie for Punisher's schemes. Netflix aught to give them a sitcom!

    The Punisher starts using Wade as a trick sidekick. Turns out when Deadpool wakes up from getting shot in the head, he can't quite remember that he's feuding with Frank. This arrangement sorta uses up the issue's allotment of clever, and the rest of the story is formulaic "Wacky Deadpool" hijinks (fighting the absurd Dia de los Muertos-themed Don of the Dead) with the Punisher hanging around to provide a sardonic counterpoint. The Bank is turning some wheels to save his own butt further down the line and it's hard to tell where this title is headed. I really hope it all turns out satisfying in the end.
