    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Mar 14, 2016

    This is currently the best book on the stands that features these characters. It has action, comedy, depth and drama, making it the Marvel Universe-equivalent of "Lethal Weapon." Kelly has sold me on the friendship between Spidey and Deadpool enough that I am both dreading and anticipating their showdown. "Spider-Man/Deadpool" #3 is another fun-as-hell installment of a great series. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Mar 10, 2016

    Spider-Man/Deadpool has been a consistently strong performer so far in its early run, and while the pairing itself remains a no-brainer, it's nonetheless surprising just how well this book continues to work. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Cain Winstead Mar 11, 2016

    Spider-Man/Deadpool #3 delivers its own flavor of the international adventures we've been seeing in Amazing Spider-Man, but with the laughs and heart we've grown to expect from this title. #3 maintains the high level of quality seen from its previous two issues and makes promises for an explosive conclusion in the future.

    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz Mar 10, 2016

    This series has proven to be more than just another superhero team up that Marvel threw together and that is because there is actual depth and character growth. Every issue we learn something new about Spider-Man or Deadpool and their relationship continues to evolve and grow. It is fun to have the lightheartedness that comes with a Deadpool comic challenged as Deadpool reveals more about his personal life to Spider-Man and the readers with this issue. This issue is really important to this arc because the last four pages really take a left turn and set the tone for the next issue. If you are into Deadpool, especially the Gerry Dugan and Brian Posehn recent run, you will really appreciate what the creative team did with the last pages and the direction this series is taking.

    it really is a damn good comic. Kelly reveals a little more about Deadpool and Spider-Man every issue that makes you respect them a little more every issue. I still hate the Mercs for Hire but at least they were actually funny and not forcefully funny like most of the times. The art and the coloring of McGuinness and Morales is on point. Just overall a solid read and that makes you like both characters a lot.

    I am sure I am last in line in a queue of everyone else who is talking about Spider-Man, but I would bet a lot of them are talking about Spider-Man from that Civil War trailer (though, to be fair, I have talked about that already as well) but Spider-Man Deadpool is another good source for things regarding two VERY talked about figures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This book has really solid art, and the Kelly/McGuinness team really know their way around Wade Wilson. I loved that this story found such a solid balance between out and out goofiness and real emotion. Having Spider-Man meet Deadpool’s daughter was a moment that really hit me, and seeing how the uncensored thoughts of a child just spill out, telling Spider-Man how her dad so looks up to him, and seeing how much that embarrasses Deadpool was a really small, but effectively humanizing moment. The characters of Styx (that’s styx with a Y and an X) and Stones are a bit odd, but their powerset really compliments one another well. This issue doesn’t do EVERYTHING I wanted it to, because I still have to use the Google Translate app to only VAGUELY understand what Massacre says (because I don’t speak any Spanish except profanity) and that this issue doesn’t even really set up the big throwdown between Deadpool and Spidey, it just prolongs it. I love the cover for this book, highlighting the Mercs for Money (like Massacre, who ive already mentioned) and I am already beyond ready for the next issue. This book is a lot of fun to read each month, and I cant wait for the next big “Deadpool and…” miniseries to be announced.

    This series remains good but there its still disappointing because it should be great. I find Deadpool to be way more interesting than Spider-Man is as he seems to be a complete square compared to Deadpool. The moment where Spider-Man meets Deadpool's daughter is a nice moment but this book remains good and not great.
