Now for something a little different!

I do enjoy graphic novels a lot. I try and fit one volume in each week. Usually I am reading the less mainstream titles (Image). I am not sure I have ever really read a title that would be considered from the superhero universe.

My experience with the superhero comic genre is mainly the movies. While I do enjoy those, in doing a little online research it seems like if you really want to get into the storylines, there are hundreds of different titles going back

I was hoping for more of a continuous cycle here but in fact this is a random scattering of Deadpool appearances in other superhero storylines. Interesting, but not essential.

I am not a huge superhero fan, so this snarky, clearly insane antihero is definitely the man for me!


Here's a good introduction to this unique character, the man who plays so well with others. We learn his origin story, and laugh along as he attempts to take out Wolverine, then battles zombies, land sharks, and Hawkeye. The only story I wasn't wild about was the Thunderbolts arc - too much action, not enough trash-talk.


I shall be requiring more of this guy's shenanigans. Pronto.

"HE'S THE MARVEL UNIVERSE'S MERC WITH A MOUTH! AS QUICK WITH A PISTOL AS HE IS WITH A ONE-LINER!"Wow...this was one hell of a ride. From invading a skrull warship to fighting off a horde of zombies ruled by some plastic surgeon in a haunted castle (it's that mental..yes) This was absolutely crazy, action packed, funny and ridiculous because that's Deadpool! Not to mention all the awesome characters you'lol come across in this collection!

By no means a great and deep work of literature, this volume of Deadpool is nonetheless an enjoyable whirlwind of violence and humor.

Unfortunately, like many other comics volumes, it's not a story in itself, but a collection of stories picked from other places, so that Deadpool is hunting down Wolverine in the first, then stopping a skrull invasion, then facing off a dark version of the Avengers without much context as to *why* these things are happening.

But even so, you can get the gist of the

A solid three stars volume - it's fun, funny, absurd, a really good introduction to an exciting, albeit overpowered character. And while all his enemies try to kill him, it's hard to build any sort of expectation - will Deadpool survive or not? He probably will, but his actions are random, and a bit absurd at times. All in good or bad fun. Definitely a fun way to spend a weekend afternoon. ...more

This collects Wolverine Origins, where Logan and Wade go at each other for nearly 5 issues straight before we get to a point. The art by Steve Dillon I just can't unsee Preacher now...Logan looks like Jesse does Daken, and so does Bucky...only Wade looks different. I'm not a fan of Wade being unmasked for so long...kinda defeats the point.
I did like the origins storyline but this felt forced, since Daniel Way wrote this and also Deadpool...kinda a really long cameo advertising the De

Great light-hearted, bloody entertainment. Dragged down a wee tad by a Thunderbolts x-over. Love the Thunderbolts. And Ghost is on that team. He's one of my favorite villains. He ought to have his own magazine. But the creative team on TBolts is just not as snappy as the creative team on Deadpool.

Love this period of Marvel. Post-Secret Invasion. Dark Avengers! Dark Reign! All that ended far too soon. Wish it had gone on a bit longer. Loved the stories we were getting out of it.

So, I've got a character in something I'm writing that's really into comic books. Like, he's the guy that's spouting off references. So, obviously, I've been researching things so that he can be spouting off references, and then I started to get really interested and long story short I decided that since I decided this guy's favorite was Deadpool, I'd just start with Deadpool. So I just bought the first thing that popped up on Amazon, and wow am I glad I did because this was just so fun .

I'm not a comic book fan, generally, so I'm surprised that I stumbled into Deadpool. But I can't help it... Deadpool is awesome. He takes the art of superhero quipping and raises it to an art form, slinging puns and sometimes injuring himself (or dying) simply to make a punchline work better

These are fun, manic, sometimes psychedelic vignettes in a world that always needs to be dragged down from its self-importance. The comic book superhero world is insane, and it's nice to have someone that tru

Deadpool is one of the greatest comic book characters ever made. Once I started reading this it was hard for me to stop. This comic put a bunch of different Deadpool stories together into one comic. This was a good read(zing), with Deadpools great puns and jokes it made it all the more interesting to read. I would recommend this comic to everyone.

This was fun and violent but I feel like it was just too simple. The internal voices just felt like it gave Way a reason or another character ( deadpool himself) to throw jokes around with. Being my first Deadpool novel I get the feeling that he doesn't have an large story arc. Just a bunch of smaller missions that get caught up in other characters issues. ...more

Good for many, many laughs! Never was a fan of his really but it does feel good to laugh out loud. By yourself. With the neighbours hearing.

Though I love comics and read them a lot, most of what I know about Deadpool is from the movie.
So I grabbed this collection to see how Deadpool is, in the comics.
I enjoyed it, and he is a lot like he is portrayed in the film.
This is a funny, if violent collection.
Some good writing here.

Brilliant, silly fun. I love Deadpool’s three different voices (although they were a bit confusing to start with...!), and I enjoyed the art.

If you love Deadpool like me you will love this book.This book has seventeen comics in one,wolverine origins 21-25 ,Deadpool 1-12,and the thunderbolts 130-131. The book has Wolverine, the Skrull, Tiger Shark, Deadpool and more in this amazing comic book. One of my favorite parts is when Hydra bob wants to high five Deadpool but instead Deadpool shoots Hydra bobs hand unsuspectingly.

Honestly, I've never been a big Deadpool fan! I think his early appearances are some of the worst stuff in comics. He was nothing but a two bit B hero. I've never really gotten behind his breaking the fourth wall antics or the slapstick behavior. As for the whole Merc with a Mouth thing, that wasn't really his shtick when he started out.

Funny thing is that I have history with Deadpools creator Liefeld, we attended many conventions back in OC and I remember some of his early sketches. Maybe there

Rob Liefeld tweeted that some panels were taken from Daniel Way's run and were put into the Deadpool movie so I was looking out for that. I gotta say the scene that was chosen was not what I expected (thought it'd be some major fight scene) but nonetheless good. Anyway, I've read Deadpool comics by a handful of writers now. When I was looked up Daniel Way it seemed like a there were some strong feelings on his take of Deadpool. Personally, I'm on the positive side, at least so far. I mean there ...more

So I have read a few graphic novels before but not anything from the Marvel/X-Men/Avenger universe before so this Deadpool Complete Collection Volume 1 did a good job of catching me up. It had Wolverine Origins issues and some Thunderbolt issues as well as the first issues of the Deadpool series. I read this in preparation to see the movie which is coming out this weekend. It was not as funny as I was expecting but I still really enjoyed it and I read the entire volume in one day. Definitely tho ...more

It's Deadpool.

Skirting the line between heroic and villainous, as usual. Blowing shit up. Accidentally getting involved in things way above his head. Dodging dangers through the powers of haiku.

Also fun to see the original contexts for some scenes in the movie.

The collection format works wonderfully, because I know I wouldn't have the patience or dedication to track down a single storyline acrosss multiple issues of multiple series.
