THE DEEP END PART 2 Deadpool has something to prove--and if he can take down Wolverine, he'll do just that. Also, is it possible that there's something in Deadpool's past that Wolverine was never meant to know?

    Lastly, the book has a flowing narrative. The dialogue isn't cumbersome, the action moves smoothly, and nothing inhibits you from enjoying this story. Even if you haven't read the last issue, you can still follow along. Read Full Review

    With the flashbacks gone and the violence turned up to 11, Origins has actually become a pretty enjoyable reading experience. Deadpool is as crazy and amusing as ever. How many other opponents have resorted to dropping a piano on Wolverine? I only wish Way would balance out the fights a little more. Both combatants have healing factors, so why not let Wolverine slice off Deadpool's nose or something instead of just growling and lunging for 22 pages? The other big problem with this arc is an all-too common one - the pacing is terrible. As much as I enjoy seeing Deadpool's brand of slapstick, I cringe at the thought of this battle dragging out for another three or four issues. There is indeed such a thing as too much of a decent Wolverine story. Read Full Review
