Oh my goodness! Most of this is coated with nothing but weird (equals gross), what's with all the bluntness in here? I know we are talking about Deadpool and Gwenpool in a single issue, but still... I'd like to think I enjoyed this 'Rated Teen+' comic but, in the end it's just plain okay.

There's so much to storytelling, breaking the 4th wall is a blessing in itself but the writer doesn more

Gwenpool takes quite a looong time providing the 'origin and other tales' with her monologue session. Not a complaint, trust me when I say I'm starting to like her, but... Are some of the details really necessary? This is my first time reading Gwenpool, to be honest she is like a mashup of Harley Quinn, Batgirl and Mxyzptlk combined.

A fitting conclusion to a 3-part story. It takes a bit of a jump in the narrative to cover a lot of subject, expected one from the beginning due to the nature of this series but it doesn't feel like it's too little or too much and it's considerably well paced to be honest. I'm not familiar with current Guardians of the Galaxy and its members, it takes a good time in introducing them to new readers more

What a joy, I really liked how things have progressed from the first issue. It was interesting to look at where he came from and Prodigal is no ordinary hero, he's a real badass to confront Galactus face to face, and I absolutely loved Prodigal and Silver Surfer battle with each other. He seems foolhardy and prideful for someone who's very old and may be that's why he is more likeable, not to ment more

Prah'D'Gul (Prodigal) seems like an interesting and powerful character by the looks of him. Didn't think I would really enjoy reading a Fantastic Four comic, I liked how the writer brought the family together in aiding Ka-Zar and Shanna, and they face this alien without knowing the full extent of his power or whoever he is, what could go wrong?
