Complex and intriguing 0

Deadpool: Max is accomplishing what a lot of Deadpool's main continuity adventures are missing: complexity. There is a lot of room for interpretation. "Who's telling the truth? Who's lying?"  That's what I keep asking.I really like that Cable is drawn to look like   Stephen Lang.  The only thing I wish was different about this book would be... it's kind of a book about Bob... and I don't really like Bob that much....

Why is everyone giving this issue such a good review? 0

First and foremost. This issue isn't BAD exactly... it's just fine. I will say I enjoyed Bong Dazo's pencil work more than I usually do. The female characters don't look like porn stars and the action sequences were pretty cool. That being said, I'm getting so tired of Way's "Oh Deadpol had this elaborate plan, that there for no foreshadowing whatsoever for, all along" style of writing. He always just seems to convienently fit in something Deadpool did previously to solve the current issue. I ge...

This book is getting canceled and with good cause 0

I, for one, am so tired of issues where nothing happens. This is one of these issues. Deadpool meets Thor, they fight a bad guy no one has heard of, who appears out of no where, and is instantly defeated by a strange happenstance.  Good riddance Deadpool Team up....

Surprisingly good 0

First and foremost, I absolutely detest issues 1 and 2 of Deadpool Max.  Every page had a gratuitous sex or violent act on it because... well because they could. They didn't add anything to the story or establish character traits. They just were. And I found it to be derivative at best. So I gave Deadpool Max #3 an ultimatum: blow me away or I drop the book.  And let me tell you something, it delivered. This book did a great job of setting up a villain who you loved to hate, and yet he didn't se...

An entire series that doesn't disappoint. 0

As someone who loves Deadpool and classic noir style fiction I really enjoyed this book.   It contained a complex narrative that kept unraveling in impossible to predict ways. This final chapter really tied it all tgoether and I hope to see more if they make a sequel.  The writing is great.  The art is interesting and unique to look at.  And the Covers are beautiful. All around great Deadpool spin off book (one, unlike the others, you shouldn't miss)....

The End 0

I will say I will miss MWAM but mainly because of it's covers. I've said it before and I'll say it again. They're always brilliant.  The thing that annoys me about this whole mess is obviously Deadpool Corps was supposed to be just the next chapter of this book. Why start it early? The timeline is all messed up now. Also speaking of timelines, The ending of this book should mean we never see Headpool again. He should be stuck in a time paradox. Gischler didn't think of that when writing his sill...

what... what? 0

Every now and then an idea surfaces that is so dumb whoever thought of it needs to be taken out back and made like old Yeller.  This issue has an example of such a bad idea.  That idea? Putting Deadpool in a rated g book. For starters you can't say "Dead" in a rated G book. So no one could even refer to him by name (they even had a little joke where everyone kept calling him Wade Wilson also known as the mercenary-" and then they get cut off... that would have been funny once, not three times). ...

Daniel Way continues to surprise me 0

I think Daniel Way has listened to some of the criticisms he has received over the last two years. For a while his book seemed to pander and not get anything done. Deadpool had no sense of through line nor did Way acknowledge a lot of his previous mythos.  This is far from the truth for issue 26. We see some of the events leading up to Wade Wilson becoming Deadpool. His diagnosis of cancer and decision to join the Weapon X program.  Also what i really liked is you see Deadpool's deeper side too....

The formula for success? 0

Something I've begun to notice is that Victor Gischler writes in a very similar fashion over and over again. This whole story feels like the same issue just with different jokes in different places. The story doesn't really progress. It is just Deadpool and friends run into bad guys. It looks hopeless, they fight. Then Deadpool winds up winning by a landslip all of a sudden. Deadpool hits on a female. She rejects him. They go off. Next issue they run into another zombie and the same thing happen...

Throw backs a plenty 0

My biggest gripe with Way is that he doesn't go into the history of Deadpool that much.  This changes with this issue. In fact, there are history related references out the wahoo in this issue.  So this issue gets points. I like the art and it also is a fun read for the most part. So I'd recommend picking the issue up especially if you like older Deadpool books. ...

Ah... confusing 0

Well, my friend said the last issue was good I picked it up and yeah... it was alright. I won't bother with a review of a month old comic though.  This issue I decided to get too. It was... good. But the "culture swap" machine? Um... why does this thing exist?  The artwork is good (sort of reminds me of Shawn Crystal and I like Shawn Crystal) and the writing is very smart. But really? This whole concept was very strange, Also this comic reveals something I've always thought. When Deadpool and Ca...

Everybody loves Sentry... apparently. 0

This is quite possibly the worst character retrofitting I've ever seen. Who cares about Sentry? EVERYONE APPARENTLY!  They all show up to his funeral... in costume... shouldn't they show respect by dressing appropriately? AND THE THING WITH ROGUE MESSES UP EVERYTHING... FOR EVERYONE. This is irrepressible writing. How did no one catch this.   Seriously, screw Sentry. I'm out....

OH GOD! Skip this issue! 0

What the hell is this? They go in a complete circle wit this issue and leave off just as they began. Sure some of the Champion stuff was funny but that was like three panels. Gischler missed the mark with this issue. Nothing changes really. In issue 1 The corps abandons The Champion on a planet with a clever ruse. He then get off and tracks the team down. Now in issue two they abandon him on another planet with another clever ruse... it didn't work before, why do thjey think they've seen the las...

CHAOTIC! But still good 0

Now, I;m going to start off by saying I HATED THE IDEA OF THIS COMIC WHEN I FIRST HEARD OF IT! A TEAM OF DEADPOOLS! IS AXEL ALONSO NUTS?  Then I read the prelude issues and guess what, the corps is constructed of some pretty interesting characters.  Lady Deadpool reminds me of the Joe Kelly days.  Kidpool is interesting... though I don't quite understand him.  Dogpool was a huge surprise. I thought I'd hate him for sure... but his origin is so creative. I instantly fell in love with the mut.  He...

Awe strikingly good. 0

When I heard the rumor that Cable may be dying in Second coming (RUMOR! RUMOR! Might not be true!), I was a little upset but I could take it or leave it. This book however makes me really want him to stay alive.  Why?  BECAUSE I FORGOT HOW AWESOME THIS TEAM CAN BE! Seriously, I love Deadpool but when he's teamed up with Cable it makes him sooooooo much better. You need a straight man to keep the laughs coming. And the action can really flesh itself out when two players with very different tactic...

off to a good start 0

When it comes to Victor Gischler I expect a good laugh but nothign else. Merc With a Mouth is too spaced out. WHat was doen in the first story arc (which was seven issues long) could have been done in one or two issues... so it's needless to say it is paced badly and it loses some of it's impact and immediacy. But Prelude #1 (which I hate the idea of this. This whole book and this prelude crap) was suprisingly good. I finished it wanting to see more of Lady Deadpool. I don't know how much I'll c...

I'm dropping Deadpool team up 0

When Deadpool got his third ongoing. I was skeptical about it but the "first" issue came out and I was blown away. It was so good. Ever since the book has progressivly has gotten worse and worse. Now all it is, is random characters that you've never heard of in story that makes no difference (or sense sometimes).  As a completionist it was very hard to come to this discision. I have EVERY deadpool appearance ever (excluding Wolverine 102.5 which is technically a wizard comic) so this is a big de...

This isn't a Deadpool comic 0

WARNING: If you thought (you know because of the title) that this was an issue about Deadpool. YOU'RE WRONG! This is an issue about U.S. Ace. WHO THE HELL IS U.S. Ace?  Deadpool is a side character in this comic and though it had some really funny moments it is really lacking. Do yourself a favor. Skip this issue. Unless... you like U.S. Ace... he has been in a comic before (Ghost rider apparently)....

Good throw away issue 0

Every now and then there is an issue in a book that basically changes nothing. This is one of those books. Nothing happens in the 616 universe. Deadpool and "Headpool" basically travel through several universes and see Deadpool counterparts of those universes.  Some of the other universes are drastically changed... but let's face it... who cares?  I have a few grievances with this issue.  First and foremost, Major Wade is lame. Why would he have the costume if is the way he is SPOILER WARNING: ...

Has it's moments 0

I can see now that this book is going to be very hit and miss. This issue shows that. Only a few sparce but very good jokes here. The plot is negligible and the interactions are one note. If you're a fan of Bruce Cambell get this issue. You'll enjoy a part of it. And if you one of Ghost Rider's 6 fans you probably should too. Other then that... pass....

Deadpool does it again 0

Most people who follow me know I'm not a fan of Daniel Way. He just doesn't pop for me for the most part.  More recently however Way has been dangling in front of me some very very well written issues. We saw this with the Bullseye arc and we see it now. This arc had it's ups and downs but it had such a strong start it was hard not to like it. Now this ending to the story wrapped everything up perfectly. It really shows how "out of the box" Deadpool is. No one could see comign what he had in min...

Fun but missable 0

Anyone who follows my reviews knows I'm a fan of Mike Benson. So when I heard he and Carlo Barberi were teaming up again to bring a new Deadpool story I was excited. After reading this issue however I felt myself unsatisfied. Don't get me wrong. This issue has very funny moments but the whole first act just dragged on and on.  Benson tried to pull a Tarantio with the story structure of the book. But this made the story slow down and sort go in circles.   Carlo Barberi brought his great artwork a...

A solid filler issue 0

This issue needed to be. It hit critical plot points for the arc. That being said I wasn't wowed. It wasn't particularly funny and reading this just didn't sit right.  Issue 15 is easily my favorite issue (in years). I enjoyed the artwork and the way foreshadowing this issue presented.  It also dealt with Deadpool being an "X-man" in a way I could accept. Way handled that well....

Epic fangasism! 0

This is easily one of the best comics I've read in years!  I have loved Deadpool since before it was cool. This book has so much and by so many.  We have space aliens, mime's, therapists. Everything you could ever want in a comic!  And it brings onto the project so many big names in deadpooldom. From new people like Mike Benson and Pete Woods and legends like Joe Kelly and Rob Liefield (on the same story ARE YOU SERIOUS MARVEL? EPIC EXPLOSION!).   But I have to say even though they all are enter...

This is the Deadpool I remember 0

Ever since Deadpool's new revamp by Daniel Way I've felt like there has been something missing. This was the Psychology of Deadpool. His antics were always crazy but more recently it's been off the charts. Deadpool wasn't as funny as he used to be and he also wasn't as sad.  I'll admit I wasn't excited to ear Deadpool had a third ongoing but I'm glad I picked this issue up. It's very psychologically driven and it keeps you guessing and laughing while you do so. I can't wait to see more....

WOW! 0

I have to say each issue of MWAM gets better and better.  This issue had brilliant banter, hilarious pool-o-vision, great artwork (it's really cleaned up since issue 1) and the cover is just great (I'm still loving the movie poster trend).  I have to admit I didn't give Victor Gischler a fair chance in the beginning but he's won me over. Keep up the good work....

fun but predictable. 0

I enjoyed the wit of this issue but it didn't contain any surprises either. I saw the ending coming half way through the book.  Also they established in Zombies 4 that Zombie Deadpool no longer feels the hunger but the does in this issue, though the virus is so erratic who knows how it really works?  The artwork however seems a little clearer then it did in previous issues and I enjoyed it a lot more this issue.  The best part of this issue is the cover by far. It's absolute genius. I'm liking t...

WHERE DID THAT COME FROM? 0

Wow... just wow. I finally was able to get my hands on this issue and it was worth the wait. Daniel Way has pretty consistently missed the mark with Deadpool's character but still was funny and at least entertaining. This was true up to this issue where his mediocrity seems to stop. This issue was exceptional. Deadpool's tragic character is very apparent and this issue revamped several of Deadpool's insecurities and really made you feel for him the way (it seemed til now) only Joe Kelly could do...

WHAT TH E FUCK HAPPENED WAY? 0

I've been reading Deadpool for years and years and Daniel Way's take on the character has seemed very mediocre to me. But then he surprised me with he Bullseye story arc. That was the best story arc I've read in a long time for everyone's favorite mercenary. I read issue 10 and Daniel Way won me over and he kept it up pretty much all of the way throughout the story arc.  But then he followed it with this incredibly bland and witless issue. I'm glad he brought Bob back. He kind of left that ambig...

Thor is back! And this time... ITS PERSONAL! 0

Recently Thor has made a few appearances in the Marvel Universe or at least something resembling him did. This was a droid made by Tony Stark and Reed Richards. This comic is not about him. This comic is about the real deal, the real Thor. The comic starts out with Thor is this void of nothingness. Thor contemplates whether he truely exists or even if he ever existed. A man comes to him and tells him his journey is not yet over. I won't much more but let's just say I'm glad Marvel didn't pull so...
