I swear, it's like people see that Duggan writes Deadpool, immediately write him off, and critique his work unjustly. Deadpool has been great and his run will go down as one of, if not the best run, in the character's history. But this isn't a Deadpool review. This is an Analog review. This book had humor, action, and gave readers a solid amount of depth into who the main character is. Not only t more

Awesome issue. I love it when Wade's intelligence and humor are on full display. He makes a fool of Cap.

I also love it when a "critic" gives an action comic a low rating because "it's standard action." What does that even mean? How do these fucktards honestly get recognized as critics?

I was having a lot of trouble getting into the story presented in this arc. After reading this issue I am starting to come around. It still has a feeling like Deadpool is a supporting player in his own book as Cable takes the lead. Some of Deadpool's humor feels a little forced. Those moments are far less distracting this time around. The time travel tale takes the book in a science fiction direct more

I think he's got a plan for Groot, it's just taking a back seat to the current arc (perhaps a Marvel mandate to match the MCU?). He set the groundwork for a Groot arc and gave partial answers as to why Groot is still a baby.

I am curious, what is it you like about this new story arc? I am not judging you and don't want you to think you need to be defensive. I am just wondering if there is something I am just not connecting with.

Pants24 - Nov 10, 2017

Admittedly, I thought this issue was weaker than the past two issues. I do enjoy Deadpool going back to being a little bit darker and not caring about acting heroic(ish) anymore. He was acting that way to try to be better and show others that he wasn't terrible, and it was all just a manipulation. It cost him everything that he had. I also like how Duggan generally writes him as a competent character and not as some bull shit punchline who can be taken down by anyone.
