    Overall, the issue is a strong addition to the series. The story in the series so far has been fun with the antics andbanter between Spider-Man and Deadpool. SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #5 is a huge turning point for the series as a whole withthe first four issuesbuildingup tothis story turn. Starting with the next issue, we should see Deadpool and Spider-Man joining forces for some web-slinging and gun-blazing action. Read Full Review

    And as is custom, artist Ed McGuinness holds his weight and then some. I'm starting to sound like a broken record in my reviews of this series but McGuinness' art is top tier. Kelly gives him plenty to work with this issue — from surrealistic, hellscape imagery to gruesome monstrosities to Deadpool staring in the mirror sans mask with little tufts of blonde hair cropping from his cancer-scarred head — and he nails every aspect. His panel composition, dynamic perspective and broad range of character expressions and anatomies are excellent and combined with Jason Keith's skillful coloring, the ambiance of this issue shifts from despondent to void-like emptiness to ethereal to unnerving in consummate fashion. Simply put, Spider-Man/Deadpool #5 is a visual feast on every single page. Read Full Review
