Last year, Cullen Bunn brought us NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEADPOOL, the hit tale of the Merc with the Mouth trapped in the zombie apocalypse. In the end, our hero found a “cure” of sorts to this horrible outbreak—any zombie that ate Deadpool transformed...into another Deadpool. And they lived happily ever after? Not so fast, as Cullen Bunn returns, joined by the amazing artwork of Nicole Virella, to let us know that wandering hordes of Deadpools might just be worse than flesh-hungry walking corpses.

    Previous artist Ramon Rosanas has moved onto other gigs, but new artist Nik Virella proves to be a capable replacement. Virella brings this horror world to life with expressive characters and well-defined landscapes. The unique coloring motif also helps distinguish this series like it did its predecessor. Apart from the Deadpools, every character and element is rendered in grayscale. It both pays homage to classic zombie films and highlights Deadpool as "the other" in this ravaged world.

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Feb 4, 2015

    If you loved NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEADPOOL -- and that should be many of you -- then this should be an obvious purchase. It may be a different artist this time around, but Virella's style is an excellent fit for this dark and funny world. We haven't seen quite the same blend of horror, drama and comedy just yet, but it's still a thoroughly entertaining intro which gets all of the necessary information out there while also offering a few laughs and some zombie killing fun. I recommend reading NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEADPOOL first, but if you don't have the extra cash or time to do so, it's worth noting this technically is new reader friendly and absolutely worthy of your attention if you like Wade Wilson or the zombie genre. It looks like Bunn is about to give us another great Deadpool limited series. Remember when Deadpool had a lot of titles and only a few of them were just okay? It's looking like those days are thankfully behind us. Read Full Review

    I didn't read night of the living Deadpool but I loved this one. Concise intro to the story so I wasn't feeling lost, not that there was much to explain I suppose, but still made it seem like a brand new story instead of a continuation. His sidekick is interesting and a nice play against his humor.

    I have no idea how this will end and will be waiting each week to see what happens- what can he do to save humanity that he hasn't already done!?

    I'm not sure why the 'pools generate their own costumes, or at least that's how it seems. I'm enjoying the mix of horror and comedy though, I think this is going to be a fun mini-series. We've seen Deadpool annoy other people constantly, but how often do we get to see Deadpool deal with a bunch of other Deadpools?
