    Newsarama - Robert Reed May 7, 2018

    You Are Deadpool #1 is a comic book that will surprise the reader. Is the Choose Your Own Adventure angle a gimmick? Yes, but one that is extremely effective, particularly given the character's ongoing meta-commentary. Al Ewing and Salva Espin get a lot of mileage out of the concept, and the use of panels and page space is brilliant. With the added RPG elements, this really does work as a game in comic book form, adding to a certain sense of excitement that the reader’s decisions will influence which issue they move onto next.

    A fresh idea that entertains as well as redefines everything you known about sequential art. This miniseries promises to be the most innovative and immersive comic book of the summer. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin May 2, 2018

    Play this book right and you get to see Kieron Gillen stab Deadpool with a sandwich. And that's just the tutorial for what we're still not legally allowed to call Choose Your Own Deadpool Adventure! Definitely not the deepest darkest Deadpool comic being published right now, but it's a remarkably strong contender for the funniest. Read Full Review

    While not a perfect comic, its first issue executes perfectly on its core story device and make this a comic worth examining. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz May 5, 2018

    You Are Deadpool #1 is exactly what to expect from a create-your-own-Deadpool comic; fun, quirky, kinda violent, and confusing at times. Read Full Review

    This is a really fun, albeit short comic. It doesn't really work completely on its own but I think once the other issues are out, it'll be more cohesive. Honestly, the .5 off of the score is because of how this series is being released. Al Ewing really knows how to write Deadpool.

    I barely grab any Deadpool books, but I had to check this out and glad I did. Ewing's writing is great, and Espin's art is on point as usual. Great team, fun book and look forward to the next issue. Make sure you take the right path or doom lol. Also for being a six page tutorial it was fun and went smoothly. 9 out of 10..

    A book whose you are the heroes with deadpool as heroes. I loved making him take the path he didn't want and been beaten, but I least I choose the right ending. I will wait for the other issue.

    Cover - I choose the variant but I mistaken with the one where he play roleplaying game. So a little disappointed about this one. Nice & related 2/2
    Writing - It wasn't easy but they doing it very nicely. 3/3
    Arts - The arts was really good and funny. 3/3
    Feeling - I enjoy it. 1/2

    Really Fun, but comedy occasionally falls flat with reliance on "random equals funny" humor.

    Choose Your Own Deadpool Adventure kicks off with a goofy bang. The gimmick is enhanced with some genuine role-playing details, and there's more than enough humor along the way to make flipping back and forth rewarding. The art masters the challenge of skipping around nicely. It's not all-time great or endlessly memorable, but it is a ton of fun. I read this on MU and appreciate that somebody took the time to tease the digital edition into the best possible format for a CYOA comic.

    The coming weeks will prove if this is more than a neat gimmick, but I had fun with this one. I got a 3 badness score, always knew I was a bad boy.
