    This issue might have the most brutal comic book fight in recent memory that also barely has any punching, stabbing, or shooting. Instead, the vendetta between Madcap and Deadpool reaches its conclusion with a few choice words that land harder than any hit. Read Full Review

    A fun issue that took an interesting and well paced detour from Wade's current problems. Read Full Review

    The Despicable Deadpool #294 is a whimsical reading experience, but unfortunately lacks in substance where there could have been so much to explore. Hopefully, the spotlight will return to Deadpool after his hit list is completed! Read Full Review

    While this showdown helps to clarify what has made Duggan's long run with Deadpool transformative, it's ultimately stalling for time between more substantial issues. Read Full Review

    MadCap needed a better ending if this is what it claims it is. Having to follow Madcap's shenanigans for years to end it like this? I get it: Deadpool is his own worst enemy but still felt like it was lacking. I'm hard on Duggan because he's capable of better. Koblish's style lacked the details it had in the previous cable arc so that didn't help. Still a good book by all standards and the last page keeps me wanting more.
    Edit: I was too hard on Koblish. After looking at it again it's actually no different than his previous books. Maybe different inking? I must've been tired while reading.

    Since this arc has been all about Deadpool running through his past encounters and setting things up going forward Madcap had to show up at some point. The issue quickly runs through and closes the holes so that the series can move on. There is little hear to really get into. Everything is done well enough as far as art and dialog, but the chapter is quickly forgettable. The one thing that will probably get you is the cliffhanger setting up what should be a good issue or two after this.

    Madcap reconnects with Deadpool but his revenge plans are stymied by the fact that Wade has thoroughly ruined his own life since the turn to "Despicable." It's a rather thin premise and it's not polished much, particularly not in the visuals. I'm satisfied with it, but I think that would change if I had paid money for it rather than reading it for free via MU. On the plus side, if this is a firm goodbye to Madcap, I'll be very happy. I never was much impressed with the premise of "let's use Eeeevil Slapstick to out-Deadpool Deadpool."
