I am frankly amazed that I enjoyed this. I've read a ton of Deadpool lately, and almost without fail it has been terrible. But, as I noted in my review of the Deadpool Corps Prelude, Victor Gischler has managed to create a really interesting, funny team out of these multiverse Deadpools, each with their own distinct, if still Deadpudlian (nice), personalities.

Now, is this book gonna win the famous Pulitzer Prize for Comic Books? No. It's nothing particularly new, plotwise, and in fact just kind

One word describes how bad the art was in this book: ...Leifeld.....

The writing wasn't as good as the other Deadpool series. I laughed at times, chuckled at others. Basically I read it as a space opera spoof. No biggie. But the art... oh dear God.... How do you get past that? Even the fill-in artist on issue 6 was bad (partially because I think he was working off of Leifeld's unfinished page layouts).

Honestly I'm glad I only bought it for $5 at a clearance sale, because this book was barely wor

So if you ever wondered what it would be like if multiple Deadpools were in one it is! It was decent, but not as good as Deadpool comics I have read before. I do not regret reading it, but i doubt I would read it again. Fun fact: the artist is none other than Deadpool's controversial creator Rob Liefeld. Though it was made in the 2010s, it looks every bit a Liefeld creation--take that as you will.
Quickly reminded why I love Deadpool so damn much. Though he has a bit of a run for his money now, with Lady Deadpool. Oh hell, I love ALL his incarnations! Loved this comic like mad crazy (pun intended). Can't wait to read more. *squee!*

What happens when 5 different Deadpool join to fight a big baddie in space?

Last time, we got introduced to Kid Deadpool (Kidpool), Dog Deadpool (Dogpool) and re-introduced to Lady Deadpool and Zombie Headpool. So it's about time we see them making some trouble/action as a team... As a corps... As the Deadpool Corps!


It's best you don't expect the least seriousness or actual emotions you know from the older stories with Deadpool. This is just one ride of craziness, silliness and the most absurd si

Deadpool Corps, Volume 1 & Volume 2

К превеликому сожалению, "Deadpool Corps" оказался не таким шикарным как "Deadpool: Merc With a Mount", продолжением которого он и является. С другой стороны, это все-таки хороший комикс, да и если его сравнить с "Deadpool Corps Prelude", то он просто великолепный. Это история Корпуса Дэдпула, который был собран для того, что спасти вселенную от ужасной угрозы. Приготовитесь к тому, что это произведение будет больше напоминать не обычные комиксы про суперге

A kandidát na nejhorší deadpoolovskou sérii je...
Gischler je fascinující. Nejdřív napíše rozvleklý příběh se zombí hlavou plný sexismu, který ale má sem tam hezkou scénu/zábavnou hlášku a vaz mu lámala hlavně délka. Pak najednou dostane nápad udělat tým alternativních Deadpoolů a Marvel mu dopřeje ten luxus udělat Prelude a každou postavu ve vlastním sešitě představit (a to se mu opravdu povedlo, bylo to zábavné a já se začal na Corps i docela těšit). A co udělá tady? Vezme tyhle šílené deadpool

OK, so this is not actually the start of the story. There is a prequel volume which I didn't know about and haven't yet read. However, the story is readable without the prequel.

Overall, this was good. The space element is a definite shift from the Deadpool stories I've been reading, but it works - Star Wars and Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy references and all. There are really two story arcs here, so it's not as cohesive as it could be, and the tone is a little different than some of the other

There are a couple of good yuks here.

But a lot of it feels repetitious. Also one of Deadpool's asides captures an obvious flaw in the book: There are actually too many Deadpools. And they're not well differentiated, except for the mildly sexist subplot about Lady Deadpool wanting people to think that she is beautiful. (It used to be that "regular Deadpool" also had a thing about his appearance, but that seems to have passed quietly into the night.)

Also Deadpool is once again more powerful than h
A lot of people seem to hate this book because of the art. I actually didn't mind Rob here. He's mostly drawing aliens, so his misproportionate bodies bother me far less.

This really is probably a 3.5 star rating. The story is easy enough to read but not overly memorable. The other 'pools are definitely funnier than the original here.

Recommends it for: no one (read DP Corps prequel, it's so much better)
The art. The "art". THE ART. It really ruins this book. I could not get through the whole run of Deadpool Corps because my eyes wanted to go on strike. Which is a shame because I really loved the idea of it. The plot and writing were decent enough but the art. I just couldn't do it to myself, sorry. I love myself too much for that.

Best marvel title I've read in a long ass time. I appreciated the Star Wars references which seemed absolutely appropriate as the story took place in space. The humor was continuously spot on and endlessly enjoyable.
Haha yeah!! Loving it and how the whole multiverse was handled as well as the universe

Really well done so that everyone had their share of time bieng part of the narrative and can't wait to read the next one

Seriously loved it

Peace out

I can accept that Deadpool is supposed to be "mature" and "raunchy" but all the obnoxious gender stereotypes around the characterisation of Wanda Wilson (aka Lady Deadpool) just completely turned me off this series.

When Gischler made the transition from novels to comics, I was skeptical. I laughed through this book, so this means I'm a believer. I've said it, and I'll say it again. I respect the writer who can keep up the craziness in a Deadpool book.

My first foray into Deadpool. The way they took the Alien scooter and then ran leaving the blue guy on the planet cracked me up.

Only issues 1 and 2.

Good fun. I love the sarcastic humor of Deadpool, and the just bizarre storylines like this one with "the Awareness."

Very clever writing.
Deadpool has already become one of my favorites. So funny.
Daniel Butcher
The story is pretty blah.

The bad "Blue Meanie" aliens are yellow?

But, there are tons of Sci-Fi movie refrences and who can resist a taco loving anti-hero?

Not as funny as some other recent DEADPOOL books,
but this one was chock full of dumb (college) humor none-the-less.

All the jokes about Hot-Pockets did crack me up!

Really funny and fun stuff. Some of the gags had me literally cackling, and the use of the Champion is great.
