Recently I've dug out my comic collevtion and started rereading some of them and I would really like to get back into comics. Problem is lots have changed and I'm trying to decide which ones to dive into. My collection is mostly assorted Spider-man and Daredevil comics, however, the most complete and probably the favorite part of my collection is the 90's Venom run. As most of your probably know its a collection of mini series starting Venom team-ups for the most part. What I liked about the 90's Venom is that they weren't taken overly serious, they were just fun. Completely off the wall, random and campy. I mean he kills to save the innocent, eats chocolate to sedate his bloodthirt, skateboards to make money, loves to sing and is just plain funny. I tried the new venom(Danial Way I believe, the anime-y one) and it wasn't for me. Haven't read any Flash Thompson Venom yet....
Annnywayss.... now that you have a rough idea what I'm into what I want to ask is Deadpool for me? I'm gonna be honest I've never read a Deapool comic but from what I've heard he has some of the qualities that made me love 90's Venom. I've kinda looked into it but I'd really like to know what the experts think. Is Deapool a simislar anti-hero? What runs would you suggest? Are his 90's comics awesome? What old one should I collect? What new ones should I jump into? And anything else you think I should know. Or possibly another character that would have the same elements I enjoy.
Thanks in advance guys!
