    Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness have built something extremely successful in this series, which just so happens to hit its stride at lightspeed with Issue No. 4. This is a must-own for not just Spider-Man or Deadpool fans, but for anyone who can read.  Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Tim O'Reilly Apr 21, 2016

    SPIDERMAN/DEADPOOL works because it is a crossover that feels very closed. It doesn't have to waste time addressing the broader implications of the Marvel universe. It has the luxury of being able to tell its story removed from the main action and that freedom is what lets its two co-headliners shine as well as they do next to each other. Like so many crossovers, this could have been a disaster. Thankfully, Joe Kelly and crew have got things under control and SPIDERMAN/DEADPOOL is a hilariously fun read. Read Full Review

    Now that Deadpool has pulled the trigger, I'm excited to see what happens next in "Spider-Man/Deadpool." There are a lot of storytelling possibilities here, including the revelation of Parker's identity as well as the mysterious benefactor's motivations. The series has been a great journey so far. The moment-to-moment happenings are so engrossing, I'm not even anxious about getting to the conclusion; I'm just concerned about the journey ending at all. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Russ Whiting Apr 20, 2016

    McGuinness continues to slay on art duty: his character designs, insight of human anatomy (and the multiformity displayed between characters) provocative scene compositions (that Thor entrance, though) and facial expressions/body language are all top-tier stuff and firmly situate this book into "must-buy" territory every month.

    Superior Spider-Talk - Cain Winstead Apr 21, 2016

    A cliched ending does not detract from the goofy fun of Spider-Man/Deadpool #4 but is an indication that the series may be losing steam. Proving that no one puts Ed McGuinness in a corner, this issue really showcases his talents as a visual artist. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Apr 20, 2016

    Spider-Man/Deadpool #4 is a lot more fun than I thought it would be, and that's definitely a win. The ending of this book will obviously garner a lot of questions, but considering that everything is a set-up, I'm kind of excited to see how Kelly hilariously writes himself out of this one. It's great to see him teamed with Ed McGuinness again and they are very clearly in sync here. Funnybooks aren't usually all that funny anymore outside of a couple of titles, so it's nice to see Marvel give their marquee characters a chance to do something a little silly for once. It's a great change of pace and a great way to give readers a better understanding of their favorite heroes. Read Full Review

    This book is equal parts funny, strange, sassy and scary. This story takes a turn I most certainly wasn't expecting, with Deadpool taking Spider-Man on a double date. Of course the date doesn't work out as planned. Deadpools date is female Thor. But the problem is in Peter's date, at first she is a beautiful blonde, but she turns out to be a succubus, which obviously doesn't sit well with anyone. Deadpool then tries to get the succubus and Lady Thor to mud wrestle, and when that fails spectacularly, spiderman and Deadpool have to dance to appease their grumpy sorta dates. This book is funny, and has lots of great small funny moments. The fighting is good, albeit brief, and the end of this issue is a pretty big cliffhanger. I expect some cra more

    Good fun, great art and twist makes this comic a must buy. The cover art does not lie it's pretty much what it looks like and Thor as a guest star just makes this comedy more crazy. Deadpool has a plan and you see it in action here. Just read it and enjoy the artistry of dance.

    This is the best issue of this series too date. The idea of Deadpool and Spider-Man just hanging out really works and it winds up being quite humorous and fun with Thor getting in on the action as well. Things get serious in the last few frames though and it leave me hanging for the next issue.

    I don't think this series is bad but it's just not my cup of tea. Between Thor fighting a devil lady and Spider-Man and Deadpool dancing in their underwear, I think I'd have to be slightly crazy to truly enjoy this comic. If Marvel and DC ever wanna do a crossover that overdoses on insanity, Deadpool/Harley Quinn would move mountains.
