After Deadpool encounters Macho Gomez, supposedly the galaxy’s greatest mercenary, he blasts off into space to prove to the universe there’s no-one more badass at merc-ing than him. How? By marrying a space hippo and picking a fight with a drug-addicted moon of course!

Alriiiiight, we’re back to quality with Deadpool, Volume 7: Space Oddity! Turns out the shot in the arm the series needed was to send Wade into spaaaace!

The Macho Gomez issue was full of fun violence with Wade inventively beating

One thing I like about reading Deadpool comics is the fact you don't need any commitment. This series by Daniel Way more so because of the limited backmatter the character has and that the writer is establishing his own canon for this run. One could read a random volume of the trades and not worry about the continuity. The "no-worrying about continuity" is the draw.

The title to the trade, "Space Oddity", is one of my favorite David Bowie tracks. That song was a classic; this book is not. This is

In a word: meh. If I didn't like Deadpool so much, I'd rate it even lower. Possibly my least favorite trade from this iteration of Deadpool. Luckily, the episodic nature of the storylines (or, if you're less charitable, write-for-the-trade) means that what happens here will mostly stay here and I won't have to worry about it again. Yay!

I like that each story arc in this series stands on its own. It makes for accessible and varied idiocy, and leaves Deadpool free to go completely off the rails. It may not have the draw of a series that builds upon itself, but its certainly very fun and often laugh-out-loud funny. However, we are STILL dealing with this dumb theme of Deadpool wishing to be hero, and it is so damn cheesy that I can't forgive it.

This time around we get Deadpool facing off against a sentient moon that's going aroun

Would have gone with a two-star rating if not for the hilarious origin stories of Id and Ego from Deadpool's vantage point and a few super funny jokes interspersed here and there. Warning: this is even dumber than your average DP book. Easily my least favorite installment of the Way-era.

I'm not a giant fan of space stuff, especially when it comes to current day kind of stuff, so this wasn't my favorite. Deadpool had some good lines, like usual, but this just wasn't really my cup of tea.
Lissibith
Deadpool's still funny, but this current run is starting to feel a little samey. Not only that, but it seems to be pale shadows of some of his earlier adventures. Its not bad exactly, but its also not as good as previous entries.
Mira Domsky
Full of all the wise cracks, violence, weirdness and mayhem you hope for with Deadpool... in space!

Whoa, what happened here? I found myself actually liking this trade!

The first issue is a point one (a "jumping on" point, even though it is set in the middle of a story arc), in which Deadpool is hired to make the Wrecker vacate an apartment. But things aren't what they seem, and Deadpool makes some different decisions. I really liked this issue and thought that Way captured Deadpool well (never thought that I would say that).

The next issue, which leads into the "Space Oddity" arc, involves Dea

Solid!

The first issue is a nice one off that involves Deadpool and some sleazy landlords, it's more entertaining than it sounds. The second issue introduces us to the best bounty hunter in the universe which sets up the next story arc, Deadpool in Space! Yay!!!!

Deadpool's humor is on point and the supporting characters are interesting. Also the villain is a giant moon! Aside from getting married, Deadpool also manages to be our beloved anti-hero, saving aliens and getting no Earthly recognition.

I don't usually enjoy space adventures but Deadpool style was a hilarious and fun read. Deadpool's space journey starts when the top assassin in the galaxy comes after him. Afterwards, he takes his heroic pursuit (and for intergalactic recognition) to space and battles Id, the selfish moon to save entire planets from being consumed. My favorite part was the crop circle that he had created on one of the planets to taunt Id. This volume contains issues 32-35 and claims issue 33.1 but all I saw was ...more

Génial ! Tout d'abord, Deadpool doit expulser The Wrecker de sa résidence ce qui n'est évidemment pas simple. Ensuite, il est embarqué dans une histoire intergalactique à cause d'un mercenaire extra-terrestre du nom de Macho Gomez et doit détruire une lune vivante !
Deadpool fait n'importe quoi, comme d'habitude mais agit toujours comme le doivent les vrais héros même quand ses deux voix intérieures essaient de l'en dissuader.
Un tome drôle et burlesque, EXTRÊMEMENT BIEN illustré... bref, un bon m

Deadpool in Space!
It's weird, and a nice change of pace, with people acting a bit less like he is totally insane, since they don't realize this isn't normal for humans. The aliens are suitably wacky, and it relates to some odd, old Marvel space stuff... though only for the main villain. It was enjoyable, but I'm also kind of glad it didn't overstay its welcome. The short side story was a fun diversion, as well.

There was just something about this volume. It had charisma and spunk and I found myself grinning and laughing through the whole thing. It was everything I expected out of a Deadpool graphic novel.

Deadpool seemed exactly like himself. In certain novels, he can get a bit out of character (I feel like). He was just the right kind of crazy.

This is problem my favorite book so far.

Deadpool tries to go heartless rogue for hire in the latest merc with a mouth adventure, with several spankin new stories.
Deadpools comics have the exact right blend of action, comedy and heart to keep you entertained the whole way through. I need to give it another read tonight to soak up every graphic, blood splat and quip this issue has to offer.
Natalia Rox
Eh... Space.

Although for some reason I am happy that Deadpool got some lovin'. He is so good at keeping serious situations light that I think he deserves a win now and then, even if his girl looks like a space hippo.

Yet another in a parade of oddball characters. This time it's a celestial body. The writing wasn't bad but I didn't think the story was that interesting and the various drills and explosives was a tad confusing.

The plot was a bit absurd (even moreso than usual) but the 1st half and the jokes more than make up for it

Deadpool proti velké planete v parodii na Armagedon. Příběh není nic moc, ale zachraňuje to několik dobrých gagů.

The first tale was jarring and not as satisfying as the authors intended.

The second story in this book is a cute little arc but nothing about it was really Deadpool like except the end.

More comedy here, as Deadpool leaves Earth in order to prove that he's the baddest merc in the galaxy.

I loved the poke of fun at Star Wars in this volume. The first couple issues I wasn't impressed with but the 'Space Oddity' bits were a blast.
