Despite all the Deadpool comics and appearances, it's surprisingly been a few weeks since I've reviewed a Deadpool comic. I have been a fan of Deadpool since he came on the scene but even I will admit that he's simply turning up in too many places. In a continuation of Deadpool trying to join the X-Men, let's see if this comic remains fresh and witty or if it's as dry as Deadpool's face:
Daniel Way continues to deliver Deadpool at his best. Some of us have wondered if Deadpool could ever join the X-Men and now we finally get to see what that would be like. Not only does Way give us Deadpool the way he should be written but he also gives us a different side of the X-Men. As I mentioned in the video, when you're dealing with Deadpool you sort of have to lower yourself down to his level. If Deadpool appeared in an actual X-book, we'd be seeing a different story.
I'm digging Paco Medina's art more and more every time I see it. It's such a joy seeing him pencil Deadpool. Throw in Juan Vlasco's inks and Marte Gracia's colors and it's just so easy to delve into Deadpool's adventures. Unfortunately I can't say the same about Jason Pearson's cover. I get that Domino and Emma were supposed to have outraged looks on their faces over seeing Deadpool in his X-uniform but it just really felt 'off' to me.
What it comes down to is I really enjoyed this comic. When you pick up a Deadpool comic, you're expecting a crazy and funny adventure. That's what you get here. This issue may not compare to other comics that I've given the same rating to but it's simply in another category. The idea of Deadpool killing for the X-Men was great. Also the fact that Deadpool somehow confused the X-Men with Ice-T was priceless. And let's not forget that we get to discover Domino's biggest fear.
