Deadpool: Badder Blood #1 is a fun debut that shows off Liefeld’s talent
How many true friends does one have in a lifetime?. As friends do come and go, but there are ones with you until the end of the line. These are friends you can count on , at the drop of a hat. As they are your road dogs through thick and thin.
I have friends like that from high school. I have friends like that through the military. I also have friends like that through past jobs. In the debut issue of Deadpool: Badder Blood, Wade just happens to have such friends in Wolverine and Cable as he gets caught in Madripoor with Thumper, who is on rampage.
We are taken to Alaska, where Thumper has tracked down one of the scientists responsible for his creation, but thankfully Wolverine and Cable come to the rescue. The two rescue the scientist and teleport to one of Cable’s safe houses where they meet up with Deadpool where Logan lets him know why Thumper was looking for him, and it is for far more nefarious reasons than the trio ever expected. Deadpool heads to Madripoor where Thumper is building an army, which is why he goes to meets the island’s pirate queen, Tyger Tiger. By issue’s end, Deadpool gets into a firefight with Thumper and runs into somewhat of a new frenemy.
Overall, Deadpool: Badder Blood #1 is a fun story that shows why Liefeld is considered one of the best in comics and has such a following. The story by Liefeld and Bowers is side splittingly funny. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, a story that die hard Deadpool fans will enjoy.
