There are a few funny parts in this, but for the most part, it's more about the feels and the discovery that Deadpool is human. Sortof.

As for story, it's probably the best of the bunch. I loved the beginning weirdo history in the 70's and the blacksploitation with Luke and Danny, and especially the horrible villain, "The White Man" lol.

Of course, his history and his future collide and as he's losing his mind he goes through a good introspective stage.

We even get Cap and Logan hating on him and e

I'm not sure how to feel right now. I just...
That's was freakin' sad!
Maybe I'm just hormonal or something, but I almost cried over a DEADPOOL comic book.
I mean, WhatTheFuck ?!
That's not normal! That's not right!

Ok, first little bit was a 70's throwback issue, and it was pretty funny.
Not as funny as the one in the last volume, but still funny.
Then the book enters into a rather long story arc about this evil scientist working for the North Koreans, who has been experimenting with Wade's

Adored the artwork and the stories were all pretty good and more emotional than expected! You can always count of deadpool for an entertaining read!
=== 1st attempt, left for posterity/self-shaming ===
The White Man episode was a throwaway, but was wryly amusing. (I'm not even gonna entertain the 70's episode - weird and just not funny.)

And the after watching friend after friend show up with meh reviews, I just lost the will to follow them. Too many punishment comics out there, why kill the good feelings I have towards Deadpool too?

Gave up, prolly gonna wait for the movie to try DP again.

Best volume of Posehn & Duggan's Deafpool run.
The lost throwback 70s tale opening it and the following one with Dead-Pimp and the Heroes for Hire was a too much fun read, but the 5 part storyline naming the volume was a real blast, full of hard hits to the reader's guts and heart.

Never thought a Deadpool comic could be so sad and intense.

Oof. This is where the joke wears thin.

My favourite issue of the series so far has been the “Demon in a Bottle” parody in Deadpool #7 where Deadpool went back to 1980 or thereabouts and visited Tony Stark who was in the midst of his alcoholism. It was genuinely funny and drawn in the style of Marvel comics back in the day which was an inspired choice.

Probably due to the success of that issue, Duggan/Posehn have tried it again here, doing a two-part story set in the 70s when Power Man and Iron

Went in to this trade with higher expectations than I probably should have. It got some really great reviews here. Overall, I was just a little let down. Still, I found some of the ridiculousness funny and chuckled like a 12 year old at Pool’s one-liners on a couple of occasions.

The first part of the collection takes us back to when disco was king, bellbottoms were in, and racial jokes could still be funny. Deadpool, Iron Fist, and Power Man take on “The White Man”. He’s a pimp. A pimp call “The

This particular run of Deadpool occasionally has throwback issues which kick off new stories, inserting Deadpool into pre-1990's era comics in entertaining ways. This time, Deadpool (aka Wade Wilson, the merc with the mouth and the hit movie) tries to join the 1970's-era Heroes for Hire and then runs into Luke Cage and Iron Fist in the present. The collection then follows up with a five-issue story co-starring Captain America and Wolverine, as the former Weapon Plus candidates team up to bring a ...more

Another great volume in this run. This is probably the only series where throwback filler issues don't detract from my appreciation of the series. Perhaps because Posehn and Duggan always tie it to the current storyline.

This begins with Deadpool teaming up with Iron Fist and Luke Cage to take down a villain named The White Man (Yikes!). The entire time, it's the usual schtick of Deadpool wanting to be part of a team and the legitimate heroes denying their partnership. There's some humor here wh

This series by Duggan and Posehn is truly brilliant and this is the best instalment yet. The balance of humour and darkness is just right and they have done an excellent job of disecting Deadpools character and searching deep within him for some humanity and emotion, proving that he is not simply a 2d comedian. Finally we get to explore some more of Deadpools past and what has made him who he is and the climax of this story is heartbreaking. Poor Deadpool, what happens is so sad but finally forc ...more

It took me a while to write this review, huh?! As in, I read the book 3 months ago.

I don't think I want to continue with Deadpool. I've generally kind of given up on superhero comic books, and if I did continue, I don't think he would be the one that I would choose.

Deadpool just makes me very confused. I always thought the Deadpool books were supposed to be funny, but in reality, they are just depressing and sad. Deadpool is a totally underrated human b

The first two-part storyline was pretty good - funny, crass, gritty - everything to be expected from Deadpool. However, the final part with the Wolverine/Captain America team-up raised the bar so much farther. With all the traditional Deadpool characteristics, the story also found a solid emotional center that gave real humanity and tragedy to the merc with a mouth. It was well told, carried a good three-way dynamic, and pulled no punches with the powerful ending. Well done.

This was such an awkward read. I mean the beginning of this was uber bad....with the blacksploitation rendering of a classic Heroes for Hire story where we discover how and why Deadpool has a daughter. They just never explained how everyone forgot the events of that story. The Faux men story was just not as good as I had hoped it would have been.

I admit, I came from the Deadpool movie. The comic, although it had a nice story arc, just did not deliver what I expected from a Deadpool comic. It was a nice super hero comic but while Wolverine and Cap felt similar as in the movies (or other comics), Deadpool felt more like a tragic broken hero. Maybe that is what he truly is...

One if the best comics I have ever read. The story does an amazing job of setting the stage and executing the important pieces that it wants to accomplish. It's even better because the writers are doing the fun bit of writing a "lost issue" every now and then. This one set the backstory for the next present day issue and then added a dimension the "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" that I totally didn't see coming.

The art has a bunch of looks. Koblish does an amazing job channeling the old 70s l

The main complaint about most Deadpool stuff after Joe Kelly's run is that it's not as good as Joe Kelly's run. This volume of Deadpool is as good, if not better, than Joe Kelly's run. The balance between humour and seriousness is perfect, and Deadpool has never been more frightening or more hilarious. This story cuts right to the heart of Deadpool as a character, what he's been through in his life, and how it has affected him and how other people think of him as a result. The opening two issues ...more
Starting well with a throwback to the seventies where we find Luke Cage and Iron Fist working as heroes for hire who really don't want Deadpool to join their club, once we got into the meat of the story, this one took a sudden turn towards angst city - something I was definitely not expecting. Once the angst increased, all of the things that fill me with glee - the snarky asides and general nihilism - disappeared. What was left was the kind of story you typically find in most outings of other su ...more

Deadpool aneb námezdní žoldák, který nezavře zobák je zpět. Už po čtvrté. Tentokrát se po jeho bok přidají i takové postavy jako Wolverine nebo Kapitán Amerika, a nechybí ani zběsilá jízda plná hlášek, soubojů a nadsázky čili všeho, co máme na Deadpoolovi rádi.

Začátek nás jako již několikrát předtím zavede do barevné retro minulosti tohoto specifického hrdiny a my sledujeme, jak se chtěl Deadpool přidat k nájemným superhrdinům a trochu to nevyšlo podle jeho představ. Následně se přeneseme do sou

You know Deadpool's origin, right? A guy with a checkered past who may or may not be named Wade Wilson contracts cancer. He volunteers for the Canadian supersoldier program, where he is given a version of Wolverine's healing factor, which cures his cancer but leaves him looking like a walking tumor. Then he ... yes, you in the back with your hand raised? Yes, they cured his cancer. Well, I do suppose the discovery of a cure for cancer would be a big deal, but ...

Když si tak čtete nové české vydání Deadpoola a k pultu vám přijde rodinka v čele s asi dvanáctiletým klukem, který na vás vystartuje: "Kde máte nového Deadpoola?" V zápětí se strhne rodinná hádka, že "takhle se přece paní prodavačka neoslovuje, aspoň dobrý den řeknu," načež přijde reakce "tak už ho nech. obrázek o naší rodině už si u paní prodavačky nespravíme," a z kontextu pochopíte, že dítě už několik dílů doma má, tatínek to hrdě podporuje a maminka asi ani neví, o co jde.

Guess who felt down and picked up a Deadpool comic thinking there would be comedy and violence and things to make her cheer up but instead found all of those things AND a heaping load of sadness?


Honestly, I loved all of this comic... There was depth to Deadpool that I hadn't come across in any of the other comics I've read involving him so far and I felt so freaking sad for him towards the end. I know that his backstory is shitty, that he's had a pretty tough time and all of
