    By the end of this issue, the straightforward Cable vs. Deadpool fight is no longer very straightforward at all. Things are only getting crazier, and I love it. Read Full Review

    The Merc may still have a mouth, but he's no longer using it to be a good guy anymore. Deadpool is returning to his villainous nature and getting ready to do the wrong thing for the right reasons (at least to him). The story is really good at mining Wade's desperation and the artwork is vicious and gorgeous. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Oct 12, 2017

    Overall, this is a solid beginning of a new Deadpool storyline. But there isn't anything here that would turn new readers into believers; it's tried and true Deadpool. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Oct 16, 2017

    All the action and ass kicking leads to the grand finale. Deadpool removing his own arm to replace it with Cable's in order to chase him through time, with his own little arm avatar taking over for Belle is exactly the kind of bloody lunacy I want. Read Full Review

    In the end I think Wade was fighting a losing battle with goodness; he just wasn't cut out for that type of life. Now he has the opportunity to be himself, to unleash his true nature and the world should beware. Read Full Review

    All around this is a good book. Everyone loves Cable so why not start things off with a story about trying to kill him. Both funny and looks great. Ends with the newest telling of Deadpool's backstory.

    Man i really love what Duggan has done and couldn't be happier to have it illustrated by Koblish. He just knows how to hit the right dark notes with his art to make this story so much better. To be honest i was ready to hate this book before i read it since i loved the Deadpool from the past few years so much. Well my fears are gone and i can't wait for what's next!

    Deadpool gets straight to business in trying to kill his buddy Cable, but time-travelers are infuriatingly tough to pin down. Gerry Duggan delivers a fast, funny script that ramps up to greatness by the end. The semi-low-key portrayal of Deadpool as suicidal is terrific. Scott Koblish's art is a bit of a limiter. He's strong on faces and figures, but some of his layouts are confusing and these action scenes shine an unwelcome light on his limitations when it comes to drawing guns. At the end of the day, this issue isn't ugly or anything, but the visuals don't have the smooth flow or dramatic impact they'd need to push the issue to all-time greatness.

    Almost all good, but can we stop focusing on his relationship/interaction with Cable? I loved them together once, but now it's becoming tiresome. I'll wait and see where they're taking it thoush.

    A misstep, but I look forward to being proven wrong.

    Did not like it all. A pointless meaningless fight

    I've been checking in with Deadpool occasionally since Duggan took over, but I still have yet to get hooked. I found very little in the plot to grab me and the only real laugh I had was Deadpool answering the phone, that was actually very intelligently executed on the page.

    I could see myself really loving this comic in my teenage years. The action in it is impressive, but it lacks anything else. All machismo and lust for violence but very little mystery and plot. Deadpool is back as an assassin after falling out of favor having been Hydra Steve's personal killer. Now he is trying to kill Cable on orders from Stryfe which presents the only real question to the series. Why take orders from him? The rest is two guys killing each other. I found the humor lacking compared to past Deadpool series which could because of the focus of the title this time around. I think if you like Deadpool as a cold killer looking for jobs this is a return to that. For me however, it was not what I look for in a series. The art is fi more
