mechanisticmoth's Deadpool: Merc With a Mouth #1 - Head Trip, Part 1 review

Worthless and Demeaning

 Deadpool’s been a fairly popular character as of late despite the ridiculously stupid version as seen in Wolverine: Origins.  I’ve been interested in the character and it seemed like his other series was a good place to start, but since this was the first issue I figured I’d be alright.  First off, this issue is confusing.  Second, it doesn’t explain itself.  Third, Deadpool’s supposed to be funny, but this one’s completely stupid.

This issue is incredibly misogynistic mess, with a female character who’s supposed to be a respectable scientist but is obviously a dumb woman who only has sex appeal with her gigantic breasts and tight ass thrown in to give readers a boner.  Her portrayal is nothing short of demeaning and sickens me.  The plot’s not interesting… neither is the twist… neither is Deadpool.  The writing is awful, highlighted by a caveman saying “booga ooga ooga” with a translation at the bottom.  The art was exploitative (especially of the overdone, sexified woman who needs to be saved by the big, strong, mutated man), and just not interesting.  I found myself skipping pages upon pages of this worthless crap.

There’s no redeeming quality in this book aside from the coloring which even then doesn’t brighten up the story.  I will never read another story by this author again, and I can’t believe people see the appeal in something that demeans and exploits while remaining bland and uninteresting.

Marvel, you failed.

Maybe skipping page upon page contributed to it being confusing.

    I am a huge fan of DP, so it was natural for me to pick this comic up. What is good about it is well since it doesn't seem to be around the events of Dark Reign it is a nice change and has the potential to be a great series. But to me it seemed to lack a bit of DP's humor, I really was expecting something more for a first issue. But I will be checking out the next issue for sure, so it gets four stars it isn't an amazing story but is still good....
