•  Yeah - Deadpool's still on a mission to bump off his best buddy Cable...but that doesn't mean he doesn't have time to fight some DINOSAURS.
•  Because who wouldn't want to punch a dinosaur?

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 8, 2017

    Both the writer and artist leaned into the absurdity of this issue with an abandon that is refreshing and fun to witness. This book was fun to read from start to finish. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 8, 2017

    Deadpool was among Marvel's best ongoing series before the Legacy relaunch, and it remains so now. Even though this arc loses a bit of momentum early on with the abrupt end to Cable and Deadpool's feud, it quickly makes up for that problem with an epic, bizarre and thoroughly entertaining showdown with Stryfe. Even after five years, this series has lost none of its charm. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Nov 10, 2017

    This Cable and Deadpool reunion has been enjoyable. Nothing new to their dynamic, not letting nostalgia drag down their current standing, just a solid read. Scott Koblish and Nick Filardi take full advantage of Wade's change of heart, painting the walls of every panel with bloody carnage. Read Full Review

    Deadpool and Cable might bicker and banter, but their shared history over the years has made them one of comics' best buddy duos, and Duggan and Koblish are leveraging that dynamic nicely. Read Full Review

    This comic is completely absurd and I love it for that. The art and writing continue to be top notch.

    A serious attempt to kill Stryfe turns into an absurd "LOL memes" hypothetical. It's fun in a very silly way, but it feels like a comedy relief detour on the longer arc. I'm not sure if Gerry Duggan is successfully threading the needle between "laugh at my jokes" and "cry at my pain;" it feels weird to look back at *this* Deadpool expressing suicidal feelings just a few issues ago. Scott Koblish's art continues to aim for fun über alles, with details suffering slightly. But hey, he draws a pretty dang good dinosaur fight!

    Deadpool becomes something of a supporting cast member in his own book as Cable and Stryfe try to continue their feud. That is too bad. While I appreciate the fact that Duggan is trying to create humor with as much insanity as he can create stacked on top of each other, there is nothing really clever or of substance here. It is the who has the bigger stick game escalating to a nuclear missile strike. The one thing that worked for me was the humor. Duggan has a bit of fun mocking his own story and characters that worked. The art is over the top with colors that are bright and stand out. This made sense for me at times but it lacks detail that could have enhanced some of the visuals. Combined this title definitely falls under the category of more
