Review: Deadpool Max #1
I'm picking this up tomorrow, how can it fail?
1) We got a great writer who has written a good Deadpool story (Deadpool Team Up with Satanna)
2) We got an artist who has thrown out that terrible CGI style and is now doing some decent looking stuff.
3) We got a MAX label meaning the writer can do whatever crazy, sick, twisted, demented, thing he wants without censors holding him back.
This couldn't possibly fail.
I stopped reading all Deadpool titles awhile back because Marvel has really neutered the character. For years I've been saying "Give Deadpool a MAX series". Now that its here I'm kinda' over the idea. I'll check it out if I keep hearing good things.
I was thinking about picking this up but the art was just mind gratingly ugly. I mean, that's my opinion, don't want to piss anybody off, but I seriously could not stand it. If it is as balls-to-the wall awesome as you say I might be able to get over it, but I think I'll wait to see how people feel about the next few issues before I give it a try myself.
Great review. I was debating of breaking my "I hate DEADPOOL" run, because I love Baker's art so much and enjoy Lapham's writing quite a lot.
Your review may have sold me, I may pick this up or at least wait for the trade. As for Baker's art, I like it, but can see why it confused you. The manic energy from it helps keep me focused on the manic of the overall story he is telling. That is just me. When I saw the DP picture on his blog I thought I missed this comic. I will wait till next week to see if there is more left.
Hopefully this series can make more fans for Kyle Baker and David Lapham, both comic creators I think are highly underrated.
