    Not the bromance you would expect from this series, but still had the quirkiness that comes with Deadpool. I am interested to see how the new creative team handles this new dynamic between the duo. That powerful and emotive sequence towards the end really defined this issue for me. Read Full Review

    This series could have easily been derailed by everything else going on in the other Spidey or Deadpool books. Instead, it still works as a standalone title, and that's very good news. Read Full Review

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

    Deadpool fatigue was a real thing for a while, Marvel seems to be toning it back a bit. Robbie Thompson tastefully delivers a fun Deadpool without leaning too heavily into the jokes. There's no better time than now to give Spider-Man/Deadpool a try. It's a wacky, fun book that pokes fun at both characters efficiently enough to entertain fans of both. Read Full Review

    A sharp comic with a good start to a rather interesting group of supporting characters. Read Full Review

    Between this and the latest issue of Despicable Deadpool, I would pick this as the more interesting direction. Deadpool has been labeled a villain again after being the hit-man of an evil Steve Rodgers. Where Despicable Deadpool does not deal with the impact of Wade's fall, this series is diving in head first. There is also the interesting parallel in Peter losing Parker Industries recently. Since Wade is a criminal the team up is again reluctant. Peter is basically forced into helping Wade find someone who is impersonating Deadpool to sell black market goods. All this is done while showing how Wade has set himself up since the fall of Hydra on a stolen Hellicarrier. While there is more weird insanity in Deadpool's solo title, Thompson does a good job of introducing some of his own. There are also far more questions raised so that we can look forward to answers later on. Deadpool's new home, new crew, and motivations are all set up but not fully explored yet. While Bachalo and Townsend are not my favorite Deadpool interpretation artist, I do always enjoy their work and detail so it works. While both deadpool series have their merit I would say Spider-man/Deadpool comes out on top as a Legacy start for Deadpool.

    This issue finally gets Spider-Man/Deadpool back on track after Joe Kelly's run ended. However, the new creative team doesn't work as well. It's not intolerable and some things work so I'm hopeful.

    Not the greatest issue, but things are bound to be weird between these two after "Secret Empire". I picked this series up after a few months off because of the Chris Bachalo art, which made this worth its while. Looks really great and was a solid bit of fun so I'll stay on board.
